Is it just me or is ev-ree-one getting injured this season? The latest two to go down are Tulo and, of course, Matt Kemp who appears to have an unhealthy number of hamstrings. I mean, the number of hamstrings is not really the issue. It’s more his talent for injuring all of them that is rather eerie. Point is, while this is all basically good news for the Giants, seeing as it significantly weakens the division for the time being, I don’t wish injuries on anyone. And honestly, for me, it makes it less fun when the best guys are not out there for the opposing teams. Yes, I just admitted to enjoying watching Matt Kemp play against the Giants. Feel free to shoot me now.
To avoid further sticking my foot in my mouth, I think for now I’ll just link back to this Massive Assortment of Get Well Soon cards post and leave it at that.
Before I go, though, Cubbies tonight. This is cake, guys.
Not of the chocolate kind, sadly. We’re talking more the Theo-Epstein-and-Jed-Hoyer-have-not-worked-their-magic-yet kind. I am on record somewhere (that I can’t find, so maybe that doesn’t really count as record but no matter) saying they’ll win the World Series in five years or fewer, so let’s enjoying beating them while we can, shall we?
p.s. This made me much happier than it should have. Jimmy Fallon sporting – and rocking – the orange and black. Also, my haircut looks better washed. This has been surprisingly lovely Friday. Yeah.
