For me- this is a very hard team to really follow right now- the product on the field is looking like 2007 again- injuries exposing a very thin talent base leading to alot of AAAA, non prospects, scrap heap type talent on the major league roster.

A good team can cover for org weaknesses- a bad team exposes them.

The TV/radio broadcast teams (especially radio for me) are stale, the marketing is beyond stale and they are running that whole area based on surveys and social media feedback, important inputs- but they still do not seem to have a fundamental understanding of who their fan base is (this goes back to the early 80's with a few, rare exceptions).

Compounded by a weird experience/feeling when you go to the ballpark.

I don't think things felt this "off", this early (May 1)- even in 2007-

It's a very long season- IF Danks, Beckham, Viciedo came back strong- its a very different team- but probably a long shot.
