Ok we lost 4 of 6 games where it easily should have been the other way around. Yes the expos stink and that was embarassing and yes the marlins have a horrible pen and we got nothing from them, but look at this team. We are about 5x weaker right now in NL parks. The last 6 games we played we've done so as if our two biggest stars were injured or something. No Maggs of course, which hurts, and either no konerko or no thomas. The lineup is considerably weaker with both missing, they are our rbi guys and run producers. Usually the konerko/maggs/thomas trio are the ones that pick each other up, knocking in guys that get hits or walks. If there is anything positive to take from this it as if we were the twins like 2 months ago. The twins had mauer, hunter, mienkevatch all on the dl and weren't doing so well as they fell behind us pretty quikly. When there guys got healthier they started winning again and are now back their 1st place form. Prediction: history repeats itself and the same will happen with us. When we get our DH back plus maggs is back we will be making our winning run again.
