Let's try it again!

Tonight we play the 4-11 Bobcats, just a game behind our 5-10 Railroaders.  A battle in the OVL Standings' basement. Not a nice position to be in.  Can the Railroaders turn it around?

As mentioned in the last post, however now updated, the Railroaders have almost matched last year's season start of 5-11 (which was on June 22, 2012).  At that time, the Railroaders began to win 12 games straight, a team and league record.  Is it possible for the 2013 Team to repeat?  That's a tall order in my estimation, but if a strong finish for 2013 is ahead something good needs to happen soon.

Of the 10 losses thus far, the Railroaders fell by 2 or less runs in 7 of those games.  We need to win the close games, no doubt about it.

It's Friday, and we need the fans at the Yard tonight to spur the Railroaders on.  Let tighten up and defense, and get the bats going.  The race is tight with the top 4 teams, we're 4 1/2 games back, and 30 games to go.  Do the math, we can do but we need to begin now! .

  15. A blog is not much good if you don't update it after every game. NO reason to look at it when it is not fresh!!!!!

    1. I can see your point, however, after every game day I'm pretty busy updating two websites, collecting game data from all games played in the OVL that day, and generating stats and box scores, etc. etc. If you "anonymous" would like to help and update with your thought, I welcome it. Create a Google Account and I'll invite you to be one of Blog Authors. I agree that more thoughts and information posted would make it more interesting to look at. How that's sound???
