"Where in the world is our offense? On this road trip, we've lost 5 of 6 so far!!!! Moreover, this team has been shutout TWICE and has a one hit and two hit game to their record. This is absolutely pathetic. Ownership has $130 million plus in this team and that's what we get on a road trip. Fans must really be crazy if they think this team is good enough to win it all again." -- 5.29.08, Jonathan Norman, BDD reader
