After 105 games in 112 days, the season finally came to an end for the Winnipeg Goldeyes. Unfortunately, it was one series too soon. After a highly successful regular season in which our ballclub set a franchise record for wins in a season, we finally ran out of time on Monday.
With a 100-game schedule, every minor league baseball team will undoubtedly hit hot streaks and cold streaks, as we all have this season. The key for a successful team is to find ways to prolong the good streaks, and cut short any potential slides before they get out of hand.
I'm not quite sure when or where exactly it started, but one thing is for sure: The Winnipeg Goldeyes have "Bieber Fever." Music in the clubhouse goes back, I'm guessing, as far as the invention of the radio. With all the hours upon hours we spend in our clubhouse each day, music helps the time pass just a little bit faster.
During a 100-game season, consistency is very important. Good teams perform at a high level most nights and are able to avoid losing streaks. Each year, the goal is to win each series, one series at a time.
