So we lost. It could be worse.
It could be worse.
And, curses! It WILL BE.
That’s right. Everyone’s worst gamble, Bobby Jenks, has SOMEHOW finagled a return today. With our history of keeping irritating players around FOREVER (ahem, Lugo, ahem), this should surprise no one.
Now, if this had happened yesterday, we would have said, “drat, but at least we’re in first with a cushion.”
Today, however, there is no cushion. Not even the threadbare straw kind. Today, you see, we’re tied. Again. With the damn Yankees.
So… Bobby. Oh, Bobby. Your goatee looks nice today and doesn’t make you look like a prick at all…
Will flattery work on you?
Screw up and I will… I will… I will do something. Something tantrumy.
Am I just being too negative? Maybe I’m just being too negative. I mean, remember that one time I was negative and then John Slackey actually pulled one out? You know, before returning to miserable, miserable mediocrity?

So, Bobby. Bobby Jenks. Let’s take another look at you. A fresh perspective. An unbiased look at-
No, no, no. Looks aren’t everything. It’s about the game. And hey, here’s an article where the White Sox aren’t exactly happy to see their old teammate. That’s got to be a good sign, right? Fearing the return of a power player…
Oh. It looks like he just annoyed them so much they don’t want to see him again.
Hard to figure.
Well, there’s always Wednesday.
Thoughts? Am I just paranoid? Or is Jenks the time bomb I think he is? We’ll find out…
