It’s Saturday. Do you know where your baseball team is?

Ah... there’s the carrot, the stick, and then there’s Lucy van Pelt yanking the football away. Repeatedly. Yes, it’s still way early, and the eternal questions still hang suspended in mid-air, like Mary Richards’ hat with a big red ‘C’ on it, but I ask who of you hasn’t already considered the dreaded fire sale?

But... dreams can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile. Isn’t that right, David Bote?

Argh. Maybe I’ll start tweeting @Brandon Kintzler’s brother again. “I’m sorry,” I’ll say. “I was wrong all along, and so was everyone else.” Does that come off as insincere? Heavens forfend. I try to say what I mean... okay, I’ve gotten the window completely open and I’m sitting on the sill. Stop crowding.

I have recently detected an increase in the number of tweeters that mean not to praise Theo, but to bury him. Imagine how they’ll feel when the replacements start arriving. Cuz there are gonna be replacements... a team that scores 6+ runs daily should be doing better than this.


But hey, Daniel DeScalso has two three-hit games this year, already. Play it, Sam.
