Wow, yesterday’s game against the Marlins was absolutely brutal. Even with those pathetic losses, we still evened that series and put up some pretty decent numbers in the first two games.
On the downside, one of our “aces” is plummeting to the level of worst E.R.A. in the majors, given the amount of innings he has pitched. Yea, it’s fair to say that Halladay may have had his worst outing yet, and he followed that up with the notion that he may be injured and possibly out for the remainder of the season.
This comes right after yours truly said this:
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Halladay won’t be winning any more Cy Young awards, BUT, I think I feel pretty confident in saying that he’s going to be alright this year. He’s getting old, and he definitely doesn’t have the same stuff, but he’s wising up to that fact and pitching accordingly.
Well said, Randy. You’re a friggin’ idiot.
The Head Rush jinx holds true once again.

The stories that have baffled me in the past weeks.
The Spurs were recently fined $250,000 dollars for sitting out their stars during a televised game. Fined. For resting their players. This to me is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. When did the overlord NBA get to decide what individual teams do? This is just added evidence for conspiracy theorists that the NBA is indeed fixed. I mean if you can fine a team for dictating their own team affairs publicly, who is to say what the NBA tells its officials behind closed doors.
Sports pundits were going crazy (and still are) when the Marlins unloaded all of their huge contracts to the Blue Jays. But you know what? The freaking Marlins have two World Series championships doing this sort of thing. Two! That puts them tied with the Chicago Cubs (founded in 1876), our beloved Philadelphia Phillies (founded in 1883), Cleveland Indians (1894), New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays. It also puts them ahead of the three teams with just one World Series ring, and the eight teams with a goose egg. Know when the Marlins were founded? Nineteen freaking ninety-three.
Personally I think more teams should get wise to their scheme. Why? Because guys with fat cat contracts do not have to play hard anymore. Sure some do – and some genuinely want that championship ring so bad they can taste it. But you know who really plays hard? Young guys and minor league journey men who need to make an impression so bad that they give you their heart and soul every day.
Jose Reyes is a great player. Do I think he really truly cares if his teams wins though? No, not at all. For that matter do I really think Jimmy Rollins cares anymore? That is certainly up for debate. There is a fine line between what a player says, and his actions on the field.
Either way, you’re all killing me smalls.
