This is The Game That NEVER ENDS: Brian Dozier did something pretty awesome today. He hit an infield double. I know, I know – that sounds impossible. But behold! Here is video evidence:
That happened roughly a week ago. This game lasted five years. I’ve already died twice and am currently blogging from beyond the grave.
Actual Rant Actually Ranted: Allow me to paint a picture.
“Well, the Blue Jays won. Let’s see the box score for the Braves game. [sputters, at a loss for words] What the ever loving hell? Four runs? Let’s see, did they pull…. WHAT THE HELL, FREDI? Why did you keep Wisler in until the sixth when he got lit up in the fourth? WHY? [voice cracks] WHAT THE F&*$KING F&$*K IS THIS BULL$#!T? [Throws a stuffed animal against the side of the sofa]”
Pitching With the Devil: I offer this tweet with no further explanation —
On a serious note: Jimmy Nelson was hit on the back of the head by a Tommy Pham comebacker in tonight’s Brewers/Cardinals game. Good news, though – he only sustained a contusion and will be in the hospital overnight for observation. Jimmy is one of the few bright spots in the Brewers’ year. I’m not going to post a photo because even though there’s no blood, it’s still a frightening scene to have seen. I was actually watching the Brewers game this evening and saw the whole thing go down. My best wishes to Jimmy for a speedy recovery, and to Tommy Pham as well. I know that no one wants to see that happen no matter what.
