Jesus, Mary & Michael



I might just go back to the Greyhound counter and buy a one-way ticket to Mexico.

Last night, Michael Pineda had barely placed his ridiculous "iconic" cap on his head and we were six runs down.  He just got hammered.

His expression lost all serenity, his eyes glazed and popped, his confidence went in the toilet.  I thought for a moment there, that he was going to ask for a bathroom break.  Talk about a panic moment.

I thought I was watching an act; a parody of baseball done in a theater in the west village.  Death of a Pitcher.

It was better than batting practice for the red sox.  It was like dunking your high school physics teacher at a,  " hit the bullseye," game at the county fair.

The game was over.  As Yogi would say, " It got late early."

Where the hell is Nathan Eovaldi?  All of a sudden Luis Severino is our best pitcher?

Jesus, Mary & Michael.

A team to blow the one game wild card play-in spot if I ever saw one.

BTW...REFSNYDER WENT 2 FOR 3 (A DOUBLE, SINGLE, WALK, RBI, AND A STOLEN BASE)!...THAT IS ABOUT 2 WEEKS OF PRODUCTION AT THE PLATE FROM BOTH STEPHEN DREW AND BRENDAN RYAN- IN ONE GAME!!!

I didn't think it was possible that we could pull a "Mets" in the last couple weeks of the season, but we're doing it.

Even if we make the one-game playoff, we don't deserve it. If by some fluke we were to win that game, we wouldn't deserve moving on.

There's no way we'd win the next round, having to play more than one crapshoot game against a legitimate team. Hell, we can't even take a series from the Red Sox.

I'm glad I went out and had a few beers last night. Came home, watched Alex hit an A-Bomb and Bettances give it back and promptly fell asleep on the couch. Ignorance was bliss ... sort of, since we all knew what was going to happen.
