    Starting to look all too eerily familiar, right? I’m telling ya, better that they die early on then tease & string us along right up until the end of the season. I think you’re right – as a fan watching games like these, you get PISSED, so why isn’t the manager PISSED?? Manuel did this quite a lot last season, deflecting the press’ serious questions with breezy remarks, trying to keep the mood light. Watching some of those losses last year, I was seething, and I wish he were too, instead of making light of it. I know he was pissed yesterday, but he was pissed at the wrong target (the rest of the team) — how about you acknowledge that you effed up by not taking Green out after the game tied? Like watching last season in Rewind.
