You know, seriously. When a pitcher gives up a grand slam, who the fuck lets him pitch the next inning?
I was at the game tonight and it was one of those hopeless games where nothing much good happens and I wondered (as I sometimes do) why I bother. Alvarez was pitching like shit and all Bailey does is strike out lately and I sort of dislike half of the team.
Baseball should not be a chore but it is sometimes. I do like the Pawtucket Red Sox as an organization and I like the park in its simplicity, but it is really futile to root for them as a team. You can go to a PawSox game and hang out and get a free hat and maybe see some prospects and that is about it. You do not have an assemblage of players who you are really hoping will bring the team to a Governor's Cup championship. You do not make trades to improve your pitching rotation in AAA. It is about individual performances and that is it.
I may sort of veer away from Pawtucket at some point, is what I'm saying. So I don't know. Either that or I'm just awfully tired and a little crabby. You would be, too, if you had to hope against hope that Mike Burns would not allow another run.
Edit: I just deleted a list of my most hated players because it was sort of vicious and unfair. Number one was Chad Spann, though, and I do not apologize for that. I really hate him.
