Summer Sun

There is no way I can possible finish the woe-is-me post I've labored over across multiple nights this week. Look outside, the weather is amazing and we're coming into a long weekend.

Who cares that the Jays run of success is utterly unsustainable? Worse yet, it doesn't matter if they DO somehow sustain it, they STILL won't topple the Rays and Yankees while holding off the Red Sox.

Honestly, I need to let it go. Enjoy walkoffs and cardiac kids and silly podcasts to wile away long hours in traffic.

Enjoy National League beatdowns that actually detrimental to a team like the Jays playoffs hopes, win or lose. Just enjoy it. Enjoy Fred Lewis doing his Southern Fried Ichiro and Alex Gonzalez hurtling to Earth at the speed of sound going for broke. Admire the incredible starting pitching and smile at thought of it continuing into the foreseeable future.

Just have fun. Don't become a fart-sniffing cynic like me. Watch the highlights of the Reds collapse in Atlanta the other day and remember none of it would have happened if Scott Rolen's in the game. Watch Franklin Gutierrez cause Death to Flying Things. Drink a beer and take a run at a girl out of your league. It all happens pretty fast, like Ferris said.


  1. Speaking of being cynical, no walks and no extra base hits makes Adeiny Hechavarria something something.

    I sure hope the $10 million man can improve on that .482 OPS.

  2. It's been, what, a week? In a foreign country. With no friends or family around. With more money than God. Give it a little time.

  3. Obviously, plus he hasn't played a game in a while so a slow start is expected. I'm not suggesting that he's no longer a prospect, just pointing out that his his first 30 AB's have been about as bad as it can get.

    On a positive note, Adam Loewen is hitting much better this season in double A, he still has a way to go, but it's been positive.

  4. Loewen's May slash line is .304/.403/.554. That's probably his best monthly line to date as a hitter. I hope it's a sign of things to come.

  5. Drink a beer and take a run at a girl out of your league.

    Best advice for a long weekend I've ever heard.

  6. Peter D: eat a dick.
