I'm tipping my cap. Masterson threw the nastiest **** I've seen all year. Three fastballs and a change and two sliders. All under control and breaking sharp. If you love great pitching, this was a masterpiece.
And the series wasn't a total loss. It reminded me of another Kipnis, a Russian, later American opera singer of long ago. Got some great stuff on YouTube. Check it out if you like that sort of thing. The 2nd baseman is pretty damn good too.
What else am I supposed to write about when the team sucks this bad?
Better watch out,
Better not cry,
Better not pout,
I'm telling you why,
Santa Claus is dead.
Aw, Merry Christmas anyway.
