Oh, crap. My bad. Had the game on while spring cleaning and everything was going great. Sit down for 30 seconds with my feet up and we're down 2-1.

 

Sorry.

Go back to your dusting.

Go back to cleaning the garage.  It needs to be swept again.

 

Sorry.

I thought it was going to be a pop out. Really carried.

Not to worry.

Still 3 innings.

And we got an Astudillo up our sleeve, right.

No, my bad. I jinxed him. I'll never use that phrase about his curve again.

You can't live on breaking balls alone. Lots of Philly hitters sitting curve in the last couple innings, getting pretty good swings.

Hope Berrios doesn’t realize he missed out on a dozen at bats from The A team.

Just to further depress me, with Mrs Chief gone I've been so miserable it's like she's still here.

No disagreement there. I saw Jose shake off Jason at least once in order to throw another curve. If Castro is this great pitcher-whisperer asset behind the plate I wanna see his batterymates go along with his recommendations a little more.

Man, I haven't been around on game threads much so far this year. Truth be told, I've been a bit depressed. Mrs Chief ran off with my best friend.

 

...

 

And I miss him.

Difficult to fathom how she could part ways with this reliable source of humor.

4, 5, 6, 7 guys can all be pinch hit for. Hoping we get to that point with runners on base.

So, you're saying there's a good chance, your buddy will soon return?
