The cognitive dissonance from this game is too great for me to speak/write coherently about it. Max, no! But Big Papi, oh, we so needed to see that out of you, so yay! But no! But yay! But asdflijlljhurrrrrr.
I will just mention the fact that Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy repeatedly referred to Max Scherzer as “Shirt-zurr”. I have no idea where they were getting the ‘t’ from, but it was persistent. Shirt-zurr, Shirt-zurr. “Shirt-zurr just doesn’t have his good stuff here tonight.” Sigh.
Anyways. Rather than strain myself trying to talk about this game without snapping my brain in half, here’s a Terrible Cartoon reenactment of The Mohawking. It went exactly like this, there is no doubt at all about that.
Still not sure how to cartoon Eddie Bonine just right… I’m working on it, OK, back off. Sheesh.
