Nurse the Hate: Hate Manny

I have been spending a great deal of time watching baseball in the last two weeks, and there are two things that are crystal clear to me.

1) The Cleveland Indians are going to win the World Series. I told anyone that would listen they’d beat the Yankees in 4 and the Red Sox in 5. After they finish off the wildly overrated Red Sox Thursday night, they’ll take care of the Rockies in 6. They’d take care of them in 5, but Borowski will blow a save for them in Colorado. I have never been more clear on anything. It’s like I’m watching a repeat of a television program. Finally, this is the year for Cleveland.

2) Someone needs to put a fastball in Manny and/or Big Papi’s earhole. Those two guys are wayyyy too comfortable digging in at the plate and reaching across for outside pitches. The way Manny was preening last night, you’d think he just won the game instead of hitting an otherwise meaningless solo home run. In his first at bat tomorrow, he needs to hit the deck or get checked for a concussion. That will take care of the #3 and #4 hitters.

I am going to continue to load up on the Tribe. They have been underdogs in this entire series, and I’m expecting they will be Thursday vs Beckett as well. There is no empirical reason to think CC will out pitch Beckett, but it’s going to happen. I don’t know how. I don’t know why, but it’s going to happen.

Random Notes: If I see that no talent unfunny douche Dane Cook one more time in those Fox Baseball promos, I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands. How did this Dane Cook thing happen? Has he ever said anything funny? Ever? Something needs to be done here…I will be attending a fancy pants Bordeaux dinner this weekend where I’ll be swilling down 18 wines including the 2005 Cos d’Estournel, Leoville Barton, and Lynch Bages. The retail prices on these are insane, but they are supposed to be “the bomb”. I’ll have a full report next week…Has anyone released a good CD lately? I’ve been looking around, but it’s pretty uninspiring out there right now.

Sorry Brandonio. I was in a period of mourning. I sat upright in my chair and stared unblinking at the wall for 7 days. If not for the love of my basset hound, I may never have pulled though this.

The record is boxed up and in my car as I type this. I guarantee you that I will mail it tomorow Oct 30th via first class mail.
