It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the early innings of hope, it was the late innings of despair. It was a night for a 5 run lead, it was a night for a 5 run loss. It was a time of Jim Thome and Luke Hughes home runs, it was a time of Pat Neshek HBP RBI insanity and Jesse Crain on the mound with inherited runners. We had everything before us, we had nothing before us. We were all going direct to the World Series, we were all going direct to a playoff watching party with the Royals and Pirates....
...you get the picture. Thanks for indulging my literary allusion.
Last night was weird and a little ugly. I kind of wish this had be a game against a west coast team, so I could have gone to sleep with happy thoughts. Oh well.
Also, I am tired of umpires. Period. And it's not even May yet.
