I woke up this morning while the moon was still high above the water. My eyes snapped open and I thought "holycrapbaseball". Now I'm jonesing for a fix, typing a fanpost for McCovey Chronicles at 6:13am. Yes I have a problem- and if anyone tries to fix it I will claw their eyes out.

She's really changed, I tell my parents. Sure she's still dealing with the occasional Freddy Sanchez flare up, but on an spiritual level the Giants are just different. I'm not going to let her treat me like before, but that doesn't matter because now she would never trade a Joe Nathan for a A.J. Perzinski as the person she is today. Armando Benitez is ancient history and even her Mike DeRosa wrist-incident scars have begun to heal.

Those past mistakes? They've only made us wiser, made our relationship richer. Remember Barry Zito? We can laugh about it now, so long as there aren't any knives in the room.
What's important going forward is that we're building a life together. And later this evening I'm going to get down on one knee and Buster Posey.
