Baseball fans of all colors: saying, repeatedly, that “we aren’t going to whine about all of our debilitating injuries or use them as an excuse” is just a passive-aggressive way of whining about injuries. Please, feel free to complain. They hurt, literally! Injuries, in our mind, are a perfectly reasonable explanation for a team’s difficulties. They suck for us as fans and crimp chances, and if they come in spates that is even worse. When an injury happens it means that a guy is being replaced by a guy that a team didn’t want to play ahead of the guy who was playing.
So we don’t really begrudge people (YF or SF alike) complaining about the bad luck of injuries or their effect. Bragging that you aren’t going to complain is silly. And, at heart, just another way of complaining.
