It's because the Manager is too soft on the players...
It's because the team doesn't play "small ball"...
It's because they don't play solid defense.....
It's because the lineup changes every day....
It's because the lineup is too fixed in stone....
It's because talk radio* [or choose one: An Internet Site, local TV station, ESPN, Sporting News, Fox Sports, Other media source] criticized me.....
It's because the front office is focused on stats and not how the game is played...
It's because the team has no clubhouse leadership....
It's because Pedro leaves early for the All-Star break.....
It's because Manny [fill-in this space].....
It's because Francona [fill-in this space].....
It's because Nomar [fill-in this space].....
It's because the ballpark [fill-in this space].....
It's because [fill-in this space].....
