A Great Start To The Season For Both Clubs...
It didn't matter whether you were a Cubs fan or a Sox fan yesterday...you were left a punch in the stomach to start the year that leaves you saying there's plenty of season left to go. After a tying 3-run HR from Fukudome in the bottom of the ninth (so much for my claim he might struggle early, but one game does not a month make), Bob Howry put on his Dempster game face blowing the tie for a tenth inning loss.
Fucking Zambrano left the game with soreness or some horse shit, no word on what his story is. Motherfucker better not stabbage my fantasy team, "THE ONE DOG". Yes, I enjoy paying tribute to lesser known players, not just in Chicago. Past examples include OIL CAN BOYD and The Runnin' Reboulets (Still my favorite name).
On the South Side, Mark Buehrle was in 2006 mid-season form getting his ass shelled for an ERA equivical to what it takes to fill my gas tank. There were some good things to draw from this game, though. Masset was awesome in 4 1/3 innings allowing no runs, Thome homered twice which means he shouldn't be dropping off yet. Nicky Swish and Orlando Cabrera got on base 5 times.
But here's what I thought while listening to the game on my portable radio while walking to the train (I carry so much shit in my coat pocket it's not funny..I refuse to carry a workbag). WHY THE FUCK WOULDN'T YOU YANK DOTEL WITH TWO OUTS FOR JENKS?!?! I understand his job is to close with the lead, but you don't have much options when the fucker loads up the bases. Get one fucking out with your best pitcher, head to the ninth with a chance to win so he can shut'em down. Dotel was all over the fucking strike zone. Bad call, Ozzie
Both teams are off today; and I'll have some Bears shit for you coming up around noon.
