Oh My God, Wasn't That Awful?

You know what's smack in the middle between champs and chumps?

Chimps.

Last time I checked, chimps had never won a World Series. Or much of anything else.

    The picture resolution on mlb.tv is not that great, but I could have sworn the Mets brought back Toby Borland and Ricardo Jordan tonight.
    I'll be looking for Omar's “scared little leaguers, knowwhatI'msayin?” comment in the rags tomorrow.

    Speaking of chimps, I'd rather watch a monkey wash a cat.
    On the plus side, I got to watch all of Burn Notice on USA. It's a terriffic little summer show.

    When you're being interviewed mid-game and suggest that you'd rather give up a HR than “give in” to a guy when you've fallen behind 2-0 and walk him, that makes you an idiot. Not a gamer, not tough or gritty or someone who “comes to play every day”. It makes you an idiot.
    It is so hard to root for this team.

    I missed that exchange, but I've heard strict control pitchers make those kinds of admissions. Except a guy who walks four in five innings shouldn't be trying to come off as a strict control pitcher.
