As I was leaving the clubhouse last night I stuck my head into Jerry Manuel’s office and asked if he had anything to say to the team.
“Not yet,” he said.
The boys are simply a .500 team and that won’t cut it if Manuel wants to dump the interim tag.
They were awful last night. No life, no spark, no energy. And, they are so close to first place. It is like they have this feeling they can turn it on at will.
Last September taught them they can’t.
