I just scrapped a post that was almost finished. It used words like Marchtimism and Apreality. It suggested that it was possible for the hitting to get back on track, for the bullpen to snap into place, and maybe for Pedro Feliz to witness a mob boss personally order an execution, which would force the F.B.I. to arrange a very, very nice existence for him in Cheyenne under the name "Charles Argyle". It wasn't my best work, but it was passable.
Then I saw that the Red Sox have scored 13 runs through five innings today. The Giants have scored 14 runs through seven games. I realized that I wanted nothing to do with baseball today.
Maybe I'll be in a better mood tomorrow. No guarantees.
