Reflected in the cool eau de toilette, right after another horrid effort by our favorite team.
Big Z is a hurling dervish, Marla Collins is wearing hurl earrings, Van Morrison is singing "Brown Eyed Hurl", and even though he doesn't have any, Mike Quade saw so many bad things it made his hair hurl...
Why, right there in the Sun Times, Quade dropped 2 f-bombs, an s-bomb, and a "damn".
The point he was trying to make, and he's absolutely right, is that his team is nowhere near talented enough to make mistakes and expect to win.
They got to Homer Bailey and were actually up 4 zip.
Then the bottom of the 6th.
Soriano with the misplayed fly, Carlos Zambrano proceeds to come undone, Marcos Mateo with the wild pitch that lets a run score...
And Koyie Hill with the base-running gaffe in there as well.
The other point Quade's trying to make is that he's not just gonna sit around while his team plays crap baseball, thus the closed door meeting and the vocalizing of manager displeasure.
I don't know why we'd expect that much difference from last year, though - it's basically the same team except for Pena at first, choosing to start Horrible Koyie, and the second baseman is playing like an All-Star.
Lookie here, and look quick because it may not last:
Darwin Barney went 3 for 4 last night.
He's been doing that stuff all season long, otherwise we'd barely have anything good to talk about.
But bad stuff?
Colvin forgot how to hit and got sent to the minors while Andrew Cashner gets tightness in the shoulder and will have another MRI.
Remember that last big winning streak?
Oh well, tonight it's Matt Garza vs Edinson Volquez, who beat the Cubs 11 days ago.
Stop making me hurl, please.
