All of this is done to spare the reader from invectives spewed in a disorderly jumble. There certainly are times when an angry post is appropriate and cathartic. In fact, it's why I started this blog after the 2008 season. I just had so much bile poisoning my system, it had to be released.
So much for the blow-hard intro. My point here is that last night's loss is now becoming a pattern. We get Greinke-d, Buehrle-d, Pavano-ed. Who's next? Is Cliff Lee gonna make a run at a perfect game too? Actually, that would NOT follow the pattern. We usually follow up such a loss with a win. We're playing .500 ball right now, and while that's a sight better than last year, it's not entirely satisfying. I'm feeling that our team has a legitimate shot at contending. We'll soon know whether Willis and then Bonderman can help boost us up to the next level.
If not, and in the wake of more tainting of our game coming to light, I may just move to following and blogging my son's rec league team.
