Signs that you think about baseball too much.

Apparently the Hot Stove is too hot for me.

Last night I woke up from a nightmare....

That my ERA was too high. It was over 6.00, and it was stressful, shameful and embarrassing.

I am not even joking. I wish I was.

The only time I pitch ANYTHING is when I call "all-time pitcher" during kickball games I organize for kids at work. (and I roll a mean Slow Bouncies Change-Up, let me tell you.)

Ridiculous.

But Bat Girl came back today to make things better. Thank you Bat Girl.

An Open Letter to Jason Bartlett

Dear Jason,

Those Girls are really, really going to miss you. You have left your mark on our baseball-y lives, that's for sure.

I, personally, am never able to eat at Chipotle without at least once thinking to myself (and sometimes saying out loud) that it is your favorite restaurant.

And you're the only reason I don't smash radios when I hear "Party Like a Rockstar." Because, if Jason Bartlett likes it.....it can't be ALL bad.

Mostly we will miss you because you embody two of our very favorite qualities in a person. You are adorable AND you are good at baseball. You've earned yourself some Boyfriend of the Day awards with your awesome baseball prowess. And though you will no longer be eligible for that award based on the technicality that you are no longer a Twin, please know that you will always be an Honorary Boyfriend in our hearts.

Please tell Matt Garza that we will miss him too. He makes me think of green bikinis and excessive expectoration....which I guess is good too. And he's good at baseball. *sigh*

Bye boys :(

Love,
Those Girls

Edit: Here's a youtube slideshow to celebrate this particular Jason. Gosh....he's just so.....pretty. In a manly masculine way.

We knew it was coming.

But it still stings.

Was I hallucinating or did Torii not say before Thanksgiving that he wouldn't be making any decisions or announcements until after the holiday?

So much for that. Way to ruin my day Torii. Bah humbug.

Somewhere Crazy Waldo is weeping.

I would love to be optimistic and think that we'll be using that extra cash to reel in Santana for an extension, or to buy a good bat or four for our line-up......but somehow I get the feeling that we'll be taking our money to the bargain basement for some bats whose expiration dates are looming. Or passed.

Worst case scenario.....it's time to party like it's 1999.
