It's safe to say that the last three weeks have been the most entertaining stretch of my entire life. But alas, Offday 3 is upon us. Our wussy players have to be a bunch of wussies and take a day off. They're in the middle of a couple of west coast series, isn't that already like a vacation?
It may be good for the team, but this offday could not come at a worse time for us fans. There's nothing for us to think about all day except the three-game sweep KC just suffered, Soria going on the DL, and Thir Thidney going to the bullpen (will this work?).
And while team and fans alike are reeling, we have nothing to look forward to but the already-do-or-die opening game of a two-game series. Luckily, after this there are no more two-gamers in the season. I don't know if I could take the stress of any more, especially when I see that there's another offday every single week until the end of June, when an electrifying three-week Royals baseball binge will bring us into That Which Is So Boring That It Shall Not Be Named. (Though we may have a little more interest in it this year; perhaps both a starter and a closer on the AL team?)
Personal note: I see Hoch is the projected starter for tomorrow. Meche had better follow on Wednesday, or it'll be much less likely that Greinke will pitch on my birthday, May 20. In Kansas City. Against Cleveland. Hillman can do whatever else he wants, but if he makes it so there's a decent chance to see a perfect game on my birthday, he's fine in my book. For what more could I ask?
Well, time to wrap up this offday rant. I have to pace myself for the next month and a half. I know everyone will be so bored that they'll read the offday posts, so I have to be on top of my game. Looking back, I see that I randomly ended all my paragraphs with questions. Therefore, I'd better sign off thusly: You stay classy, Kansas City. I'm Porcus?
