My vitriol is not connected to last year. It is connected to the perpetual selling of the brand that goes too far. I am ready to move on from the "streak" but I am not so sure about the ownership's ability to do so.
If they keep retiring numbers, everyone will have 3 digits on their back. I can't see retiring any more numbers right now but I am sure they will retire some because that is the way it goes now. Soon they will be building monuments in the triangle in center field.
Of course, my rambling comments are always tempered by a good year.
