And just in time… to lose?
JUST got off work. Bottom of the 8th? 2 outs. And… OUT. Pedroia.
“An unusual thing to happen to Daniel Bard tonight…” ~Announcer.
What unusual thing? What unusual thing?
I HATE 13 hour, no-lunch-break days.
Asdrubal Cabrera. Oh.
“You go out there with confidence every time,” Bard said of the streak before the game. “I expect the same thing out of myself every time, which is to throw up a zero or two zeroes — whatever they ask of me. Nothing really changes for me. My confidence level is definitely high, but whose wouldn’t be if you get on one of these rolls? A lot of it’s luck, but I’ll take some credit, I guess, myself. A little bit.”
BARD! You jinxed it! Didn’t you ever go to elementary school? Don’t you know how these jinxes work?????
I bet you didn’t even knock on wood.
The Indians. I’ve always said those non-politically-correct-feather-heads were a problem.
But… Bard… that was only part of the 9-6 game… who allowed the other runs???
John Lackey started off in a way previously unseen this season, as he had his first 1-2-3 first inning of 2011, struck out three of the first six batters he faced, and retired the first eight Cleveland batters of the night. Once he did allow a hit, the Indians were able to get to him, as they scored five runs over Lackey’s 6 2/3 innings of work.
OH. IT WAS YOU, JOHN LACKEY.
ABLE TO GET TO HIM??????? They were able to TRAMPLE him.
Someone needs to threaten you. Or scream at you. Or something.
What do we do with you Lackey? Is it your feelings? Are your ‘ittle feelings getting in the way of pitching the damn ball?
Do you need an inspirational speech? Is that what you need? Because I can do that. Inspirational speeches… inspirational speeches… Ah. Here we are.
“You are so full of crap… you’ve got hardly a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in with the best baseball team in the land for TWO YEARS. And you’re also going to walk out of here with a win from the WORLD SERIES. In this lifetime you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody but yourself. And after what you’ve gone through, if you haven’t done that by now, it ain’t gonna never happen. Now go on back.”
Well, that settles it. The pledge is null and void. You did this to yourself, Johnny. Why do you make me mock you so?
WHY???? Do you think I ENJOY this?
I think you have deep seated issues, deeper than I, a blogger, can deal with. I think you need to talk to Timlin or something.
Thoughts on the game I missed? Observations I should know about?
Bah. Humbug. The Stanks are 1.5 behind. Top of the 9th, 3-2, Stanks. GOOOOOOOO WHITE SOX.
