That’s what Chris Carpenter did. He just absolutely chopped up and cut through our lineup. Nate didn’t pitch all that poorly, but we were just flat out dominated today. There’s little more that you can say.
Chris freakin’ Carpenter.
(anyone check him for pine tar?)
Zoom looked rusty but hey, when was the last time he worked in a game proper, right? I don’t know what he was thinking tonight, throwing to third like that, but whatever. I do feel pretty certain that no matter how “100%” they claim his wrist is, there’s no way in kitten hell that he’d be pitching if these were just regular season games.
Now I feel a little bad about laughing at Molina the other night, because when Pudge took a ball off the “inner thigh” tonight, he looked like he was in an AWFUL lot of pain.
Oh, and David Eckstein? It’s a walk. WALK. W-A-L-K. Not a run. Not a free jogging pass. A walk. So why don’t you WALK instead of racing down to first like the scrappy little tool that you are? I expect that kind of behavior out of a little leaguer playing for the first time in front of national TV cameras, not from a veteran MLB shortstop.
But, basically, Chris freakin’ Carpenter. Says it all, right there.
