I don't know who we are playing today, or at what time.
We are going to win two more in a row.
That gets us to one game over .500 ( is that right?), and terminates the win streak at five games. Making it our second longest win streak of the season.
A lot of it has to do with the fact that another dog-doo team is coming to the stadium.
As for my headline; It refers to Parolee's last at bat of the win yesterday. He had shocked the world with 2 homers and a double. As well as excellent glove work at first base. People started to forget his age and the fact that he has been kicked around baseball like a pinball.
People started to thing that maybe, just maybe, Cashman had acquired and stashed a few players in the farm system who could actually help.
Parolee's last at bat showed that the scouting reports had arrived on the Angel's bench. He struck out, and looked as bad doing so as any of our .145 hitters.
His hitting magic, therefore, is done.
But he still had a flash of glory. A great tape to show his grandchildren, one day.
And we thank him for that.
Enjoy the game.
