That could have gone better.
We didn’t even wait until the 9th for it to all fall apart tonight. Just a long, slow, steady downward tumble today.
All I have to say is that I hope we break-in this line-up before the end of April. Get all of the kinks and issues ironed out before we dig ourselves into a hole that we can’t get out of.
Tonight, I am breaking out the advil, because this one hurt.
I think I should also probably pass a couple of them to AJ Pierzynski, who is probably going to be a little bruised tomorrow morning after throwing himself into the path of the oncoming train more than a few times tonight.
Which brings us to the pitching staff (because everything does, these days). Oh, Gavin. Gavin, Gavin, Gavin. Why did you insist on breaking my heart tonight? I’m not giving up on you (its going to take a lot more than a couple of disappointing starts for that), but next time, take a few deep breaths and stop getting ahead of yourself. It’s only April, the season is young. Don’t worry yourself into being your own worst enemy.
I don’t really have anything more eloquent to say tonight.
Hats off to the Halos tonight. Well played, gentlemen. Well played.
