Warning – tonight, this gif encapsulates the tone of this post –
No Amount of Snark Will Beat Real Life: I know the Natinals actually won their game, but it’s still a big shitstorm down in D.C. This collection of fail will make you feel better about your team, guaranteed. Unless, of course, your team is the Natinals.
Meet the Matz: The Mets’ rotation is unfair. You can’t swing a cat near that pitching staff without hitting an ace. Even their fourth or fifth starter is better than almost anyone on, say, my beloved Atlanta Braves. Tonight, Steven Matz came out and did his thing. The victims were the New York Yankees. One run in six innings – I think that’s all right, don’t you?
When Good Things Happen to Good People: If I told you this morning that a match-up between Rubby De La Rosa and Madison Bumgarner would end up with the gritty D’Backs winning, you would have laughed in my face and said I was insane. Well, friends, I’m not and they did, and I believe the correct term is schadenfreude.
