Just look at the bright side we the bucs sucks but we dont spend much money the orioles suck and they are a top 10 team salary.
Partly, I do look at it that way. As I've stated in the past, IMO our problem is a combination of horrible ownership, horrible management and a league which is a complete joke when it comes to a level playing field. When a team has two pitchers (Clemens/Mussina) who's payrolls combined equal out to more than your total payroll that tells me something is wrong with this league. It's no secret.
, there is absolutely no excuse for this team to be this bad for this long. None at all.
