Re: reds vs cards 8/17
Was at the game today.
Edison pitched very nicely, and it was good to see him not lose his mind after trading brush-backs with Loshe and hitting Lopez.
He also undressed Ankiel and Glaus during that tough spot (forget the inning...bases loaded and only 1 out). Serriously. He made them look silly. They are a couple of very tallented hitters and he just made them look dumb.
I am not pimping for Javy as a long-term solution to anything (except an endorsement deal from Old Country Buffett), but he ran out one infield hit and made a nice diving grab today. The diving grab was a real rocket-shot.
We actually stuck around for the game and paid attention to it. With a lot of these miserable performances we stick around through the scoreboard stumper and then bolt.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
