The Prodigal Bitch Returns
There he is. I remember this guy. It was vintage, non-contract year AJ. Flashes of brilliance, pitching with one's dick and fuck ups. And the crowd booed his ass.
“I knew it was going to happen. I just kept saying, ‘One pitch at a time, one pitch at a time,' and any time I heard it, I said it to myself louder.”
He must have been screaming at himself, because Johnny Damon said the booing in Toronto for AJ was worse than what Damon got when he returned to Fenway for the first time. That's impressive, because Boston is full of assholes. Wow, I guess we were pissed. Maybe almost as pissed as when Doc gave up the shut out.
Doc finally gets some love from ESPN. It shouldn't matter, but it's nice. Watching the game last night, it got kind of inevitable. Of course Doc was going to win and AJ was going to disappoint. Everything was as it should be.
Sign of the night? "Someone call the Doctor, A-Rod needs a shot." Also awesome, telling AJ he looks fat in stripes.
Almost forgotten, AARON HILL who hit a home run which finally put AJ out of his misery.
