Have you ever traded for a guy and then been a little disappointed?
U know you have.
Now, the thing about this is
Expectations were probably somewhat
Ridiculous to begin with.
Enjoy your new player and give him time to adjust to his
New team and
C what he’s capable of – it may not be
Exactly what you were hoping for, but then again, it could different in a pretty fantastic way.
Whatever ends up happening, the point
Is that everyone needs to
Let up a bit of Hunter Pence and
Let things play out.
Because the Trade Deadline wasn’t
Even a week ago, yet.
I hope you are all having a lovely Friday and
Now also basking in Hunter Pence love.
p.s. We’re facing Jonathan Sanchez in Colorado tonight. If he doesn’t walk a thousand and one people, I want my money back. Even though I’m not technically paying any money. But still. You know what I mean.
A lot of people seem miffed that baseball is not an Olympic sport this year. I don’t really care that much either way – the only summer Olympic sports I like are synchronized diving because, seriously, that’s awesome and super weird – but I do think that Being Gregor Blanco needs to be an Olympic sport. Sure, Gregor Blanco would always win, but it would still be a fantastically fun sport to watch. ‘Cause, you know, he does things like this.
Just watch it a few times. (WordPress won’t let me imbed it, so you gotta go the old-fashioned way and actually click a link.)
While we’re at it, David Beckham Coming Down the Thames With the Olympic Torch should also probably be a sport. Alternately, Beating the Mets Who Are 8.5 Out of First Place and Hit Even Worse Than We Do. I’ll present it to the IOC next time I run into them in Starbucks or whatever.
p.s. Does not demonstrate that I am harboring delusions that I decided to talk about something good rather than… pretty much everything else on the Giants front. I’m just being an optimist over here/letting it all stew so I can write a nasty post tomorrow. Sound good to y’all? Then it’s a plan.
