This long, strange, injury-riddled season is FINALLY over

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: This was a waste of a season in so many ways. Beltre had another year of his All-Star career wasted. Holland wasted a year injuring his knee. Every move that JD made seemingly blew up in their faces (see Prince for Kins trade as exhibit "A"). Profar was injured and we don't know what he's really got. There were of course the injuries. And Wash is gone.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: There's always next year. And next year cannot be as bad as this year. It cannot. Right?

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: A lot of young, minor league players got a fair amount of playing time this year. Hopefully that will pay dividends next year.

I will be very interested to see if Wash turns up managing another team next year or on another staff as an assistant. I hope we get more of the full story regarding his resignation.

And again there is always next season and with the way the club ended the season maybe there are actually some reasons to look forward to it.
