Man, we all suck. An incredible last month and we've barely logged on to this site. Some random thoughts on the last few days, in no order:
- That trade for CC looks pretty good now, I guess.
- And he's the favorite for the Cy. I'm sure it'll be over all the papers (maybe it is already), but how often has a Cy Young/MVP winner switched leagues midseason?
- I just can't get worked up about coming in second to the Rays. It's a pretty exciting turnaround for the franchise. If the Sox lose in the playoffs, I'm going to have no trouble rooting for the Rays the rest of the way.
- On that topic, I cannot believe that changing their name actually worked. Stuff like that never works.
- Also: I love that they have no idea who should throw out the first pitch. I think I speak for all of us when I say: Ben Grieve!
- There's plenty of stuff not to like about the Mets (their hoarding of Big Free Agents; their firing of Randolph; 1986), but they've grown on me the last few years, given their fanbase - plenty of them stayed loyal throughout the entire Yankee dynasty. So this second collapse in a row has to hurt - my heart's out to Mets fans.
- Go Tigers.
