Sports are fading fast

Sports manager Bob Flori has got a major problem on his hands. His Sports club is too good to be floundering like they are.

In two of their three games with El Paso, the Sports played horribly. Errors, a struggling bullpen and an inconsistent offense have all arisen within the last three weeks. This isn't something that's materialized during the second half. The signs were there at the end of the first half when they blew the first-half title.

Flori made some moves, acquiring Wade Robinson and Jack Joffrion who were supposed to strengthen the heart of the defense. But, Robinson's made some errors at key points this year. That's not supposed to happen for a guy who was playing at the Triple-A level last season.

It doesn't help that one of their biggest offensive players - J.P. Schmidt - is enduring a horrible slump. He was hitting under .230 prior to the El Paso series.

Flori's got to something to right the ship, or this season maybe finished before it ends.
