A complete collapse after the All-Star Break punctuated by them simply handing Dickerson to the Phillies. Yeah, he's only a two-month rental, but you'd think they'd at least try to get more than "international bonus allotments and a player to be named later" for a .300+ hitter who won a Gold Glove last year. But no, not having to pay the final $2.9M they'd owe him for this year is apparently enough.
Fuck Bob Nutting and every fucking shitbag in the front office. If someone blasted the tops of their heads off at close range with a shotgun, I would celebrate the way most fans celebrate a World Series. Because with them in charge, that'd be the only fucking way I'll ever get that celebration because they're happy being shitty 90% of the time, playing for a future that peaks with having brief runs at the postseason before fading back to sucking and doing everything humanly possible to avoid actually trying to be financially competitive, while Nutting pockets every last bit of competitive balance money to make sure his personal bank account is competitive with other super-rich assholes.
Here's to an off-season of making a big splash by signing a 33-year old pitcher coming off a 5.68 ERA year where he was demoted to the bullpen because he was the absolute drizzling shits as a starter because they are "sure" they'll be able to fix him and getting a .215 hitting middle infielder or catcher because they like his moxie WHILE every single good young player on the team counts the days until they get close to free agency, so they can get traded to a franchise that actually gives a shit, or at least pretends to.
