WHY WHY WHY.
Because I mean you know Roman Colon was doing awesome against National League batters and all… oh wait, make that a 5.28 ERA, which I’m sure will improve against American League batters because they’re, you know, so much weaker than their NL counterparts.
And hey, power arms are good to have. Because it’s not like The Farns was a power arm or anything.
ARGH I AM ALL KINDS OF UPSET RIGHT NOW.
ETA: Why does this feel like us giving up on the Wild Card? Why? I mean, will I still be pretty psyched if we attain the mythical .500 by the end of the season? Yes. Do I really think we should be giving up on the Wild Card just yet, especially with the Twinkies divebombing? Call me nuts, but no. This feels like management giving up, though. I know The Farns was gone after this year most likely, but if you want to win this year you keep him for this year.
I don’t know. I’m probably more upset about this than I should be. Who will protect Carlos when he is hit in the head? Who will be our enforcer? Who will make Dmitri giggle and say ‘Superman’? Aargh. Goddamn stinky baseball.
Oh yeah and thanks, Dugout, this really helps me to not, you know, miss the hell out of him already. Man. Upset.
