What happened to the Whippets this year?
St. Paul, MN
It was a rebuilding year, Sarah
. The team played well and while their overall record was disappointing to us all, there were many bright spots as well. On his good days Ernie's knuckleball was still working pretty well and Ronnie made some outstanding catches in centerfield. Many of the games were a good deal closer than the scores would suggest. Wayne Tommerdahl hit some long balls that came very close to being extra-base hits. With a few breaks here and there, things would've been quite different. Spirit was good. With another good starting pitcher and some improvements on defense, this team can be a contender in 2008, especially if the offense is more productive. The outlook remains positive. We are not going to dwell on the past we are going to look confidently to the future. Thank you for your interest.
