I heard enough of sports talk this morning to figure out that a part of the general population seems unhappy with "mad scientist" Joe Maddon.
I can't listen to it.
Every year at Thanksgiving, I smoke a turkey on the grill.
Every year, my wife says lets eat about 5 and I say okay and then at 4 I go in and say hey, the turkey won't be ready til like 6 or 7.
Every year, my wife says HOW COME THE TURKEY IS NEVER READY ON TIME?
Why would you expect someone who does something the same way all the time to change suddenly?
Joe Maddon helped build a team of movable parts that he very successfully has moved around all year long.
So when I hear people complain about it, I feel like... what team have you been watching?
Anyway, don't have real time for words today.
I was actually almost to the elevator last night (working late) when my phone lit up with a buncha texts.
Ran back and turned on Emily's radio, heard Pat say Superman had hit a freaking 3-run homer, and I then tweeted the above art right then.
(So if you want to blame me for a jinx, feel free.)
I thought it was storybook when Bryant went deep.
Never heard Bumgarner have a start like that.
Mike Montgomery was perfectly chosen by the Cubs.
I'm actually excited as hell about a Lackey start tonight, but Carl Edwards Jr. has been chosen to do something exceptional, and tonight's the night.
Also, Anthony and Addison are about to explode.
