In the past two cases specifically, the ninth innings have been spectacular beyond expectation. Edwin strikes out the side by burning it past the batters, and Justin gets Jermaine Dye to fly out, strikes out Jim Thome (after surrendering a home run to him earlier), and then touches 100 to strike out Josh Fields. There are not enough superlatives to describe the elation. I'm so sick of getting beat at the Cell, so guaranteeing a series win earns Justin 10,000 bonus points, a new car and a trip to Disneyworld.
Like I said, we're getting spoiled here. Edwin's on tonight, and I don't want to get greedy, but it's hard not to expect brilliance from these two right about now. Admit it, you're expecting a minimum of eight out of Jackson tonight, aren't you? I hope he doesn't feel the weight of these expectations. Pitching in a pressure-cooker is not what we want for young Edwin.
I know this much, I'm thoroughly enjoying the pampering provided at the J and E spa.
