Sometimes you catch the best of the worst

Sometimes, when there is a day game, a Gameday viewing is put aside for the radio.

And sometimes, you hear what all the fuss is about.

There are other teams who seem to lose regularly when being so close to winning. I bet Cleveland and their fans have felt that way over the years. It's generally a characteristic of losing teams. They don't regularly get blown out, but lose in the most devastating ways that just snowballs the entire season in the wrong direction. Over the course of almost 52 full seasons, from their inaugural campaign onward, that losing characteristic seems to be more prevalent than anywhere else throughout the land.

At least it just feels that way.

Struggling is good. Struggling can build a real solid foundation for something strong. This has been said ten-fold by certain parties with similar views regarding the state of the franchise, but it makes it easier to take on a daily basis than in a year like, say, 2009. Whether or not you believe whatever young core is here is the core that will be together over the long term, the core has all of a sudden been together for a few years, and as a team in this Terry Collins Era they are arguably struggling worse than they ever have, or at least more than they ever have in the first-half, because the 2012 second-half struggles were historic, even in Metsian measurements.

And it feels alright, almost necessary.
I don't think any of us have to be dramatic about it.
It's a telling year, a very important year, and questions will be answered, or at least altered slightly.
There is no waste of time when enjoying baseball.

It's getting muggy.

Taking a hot shower at the end of the day has transitioned to a warm shower has transitioned to a cold shower.

So, sit back, relax and keep that smile on your face, whatever the outcome might be.

It's going to be a fun summer.
