The Best Kind of Sweep
To see the Houston fans cheer heartily like a bunch of Romans watching Christians being eaten by lions as Bonds was ducking Springer's pitches made me pretty sick. I can't in all honesty say that my reaction wouldn't have been the same if I were a fan of another team opposing Bonds, but good lord. Laughing with glee while a player dodges 95 mph projectiles hardly seems like healthy behavior. Seriously, screw you Astro fans. Hope you enjoyed that little spanking.
I must say, Pedro Feliz seems to be on a one-man assault on the Give 'Em Some Stankeye mantra that he sucks. Feliz has been hitting the crap out of the ball lately. I don't know if he's stopped swinging with his eyes closed or what, but whatever the hell it is, it's working. With the heroics in Houston and the vengeance-wreaking after the Bonds fiasco, the 'Stros probably found themselves with visions of Feliz as this guy...
Mike Matheny has also stepped it up a bit at the plate (though his .654 OPS simply merits a "terrible" rating as opposed to "Uwe Boll"), which means that at this point there is only one stooge diseasing the Giant lineup, as opposed to three.
The posts have been scarce, but I'm not dead, or even in a coma for that matter, just in the midst of a finals week/graduation muddle. I'll do my best to bring you bad commentary on the Bay Bridge series this weekend, hopefully with pointless You Tube links thrown in for the sake of annoyance. Speaking of which...
