Despite a new field manager, the Dharma Beats continue swooning. Knocked out of first place, the team appears to have lost the will to win. Most observers think the pitching staff is in acute disarray...a condition attributed to ex-manager Orlovsky. Those with the expectation that new manager Doctor Sax could turn the situation around immediately were expecting too much.
On the other side, the Washington Presidents have moved out of the cellar and have been swinging their bats like there was no tomorrow. President John Quincy Adams had four hits and President Ulysses S. Grant knocked four runs across the plate.
It is early June. It is premature to make final conclusions at this point.
