So this is it. This is how the season is going to go.
a. Starting pitcher pitches well
b. Offense does little
c. Bullpen works with little or no margin for error
d. Half the time, it works. Half the time, it fails.
e. Cardiac arrests a-plenty
When we were riffing on offseason goals, a chunk of us agreed that a .500 season would be a success. I'm not sure if I really understood how frustrating it would be, though. I've watched take-a-penny, leave-a-penny teams before, but never one that was so lopsided in their talents.
I'll be breathing into a paper bag if you need me.
Randy Johnson was amazing, by the way. That's a goofy slider.
