This One Was Over Early
This one was over in the first, REALLY over after four. Wakes couldn't find the strike zone with his knuckleball. Hell, he couldn't find the strike zone with his fastball! And when he finally did find it, the knuckler came in high, letter high, over the fence on a line high. So quicker than you can hiccup, it was four zip. An appetizer later, it was seven zip, and lights out time for me, and the club. Josh Bard had three passed balls, half of Doug Mirabelli's total in 309 innings last year. "Big" Riske gave up a 2 run shot in the seventh. Actually, no one who came in from our bullpen shined. The only good thing about last night was that the Yankees, with Procter pitching the ninth, lost. Ya dee do.
Tonight, Josh baseball will pitch. He'll pitch our home opener on Tuesday (thank you Mr. Smith), the next "during the week" day game that I shall watch. Beer, popcorn and Hi-Def at 1pm, if anyone cares to be in the area and wants to enjoy. I mean it! And don't forget the free parting gift!
