My Eight Wins

The Good

Remember when Nick-at-Nite used to do shows like My Three Sons, and Mr. Ed, and Green Acres, and that show with the Duke sisters? That was a long time ago. You know what else was a long time ago? The last time we lost. Joba pitched another great game, going seven plus, one run, and twenty-nine strike outs.

The Bad

Dave Robertson pitched the ninth, got three outs, and gave up two runs. There were some errors due to the fact that nobody wanted to be there by the ninth, so only one was earned. But still.

The Ugly

When you're up 1-8, it is clear that the players get tired of playing. They come up to bat, pop up on the first pitch, and walk away satisfied that they're one out closer to getting home. Guys get on base and they're like, "$#!%. I've just extended the inning. My bad first base coach whose name no one knows." And the first base coach is like, "No problem, sir. Can I get you a soda?" And the base runner is like, "Who the #@$&! are you!"
