From Beast To Beyotch



I really, really hate to say this....but thank god for Tampa and Toronto. If they decided to fold up the tent, I don't know where we'd be tonight.

There are a lot of people to blame for this 17-9 debacle to a team that was given its last rites and embalmed. But the ringleader of this three ring circus was Mike Mussina.

Instead of calling him Moose though...I'm going to start calling him Morris, as in the Cat. Because he's so fucking finicky!!!! Need your Nine Lives, bitch???

His last start, he was challenging guys and finishing them off. In part, because Torre gave him a 80 pitch limit, so Mike realized that he had to make the most of it and be economical.

Tonight, he went back to being his old finicky self. Refusing to challenge hitters, nibbling, unable to adjust when his original gameplan isn't working.

He lasted an inning and two thirds. An inning and two thirds!!! During a pennant race!! And this is the guy who is supposed to pitch us to the posteseason if it comes down to Sunday? Schilling was hardly sharp, but at least he battled. Mussina and the rest of these bastards never gave us a chance to compete. Sheffield dons his cape and does his Superman imitation.....and these jackasses give the lead right back. How do you let a team as dead as the O's drop a 17 spot on you during a pennant race?

Tomorrow's a new day and momentum is tomorrow's starting pitcher. Hopefully, Chacon can give us an edge and Tampa and Toronto aren't done playing spoiler. I'd settle for being tied going into Friday. But I'd love to have a game in hand versus Cleveland and Boston.

If not, well Morris....you better become Tony by Sunday.

"As for you, Mr Pahk the Cahhh...Don't you have something else to do other than critique my blogs?"

--------------------
Sensitive are we? Perhaps you didn't notice the compliment in there. Or past honors paid to your efforts?
Is the playoff atmosphere getting to you? or is it the possible lack of playoff participation by your prison striped crankees that has you once again straining to come up with an kind of an effective comeback.

"You should be devoting more attention to your wife if she hasn't left you already."

Careful. She's alot tougher, smarter and a helluva alot better looking than you.

Since you're probably going to do a Frank Pentangeli after Sunday (see if you're smart enough to get the reference)..
--------------------
Smarter and Quicker than you. I alway thought you looked like old Frankie under that little trash can of a head piece of yours.

You should be spending as much time as you can with her, infidel....

"Godfatherly" like advice from you? Remember how his "game" ended.

Easy there Darth,
I doing want you clutching your chest in agony until sometime Sunday night.
Your "triple play" of a response make it seems like I've struck a nerve.
And your responses? Well, I have been accused of critiqing the blobs you put on your blog so I'll just leave you with the dream ending you outlined for yourself.

Spending the better part of the next 50 years trying to inflict a torture that could be erased by simply hitting the delete key and ending up alone. Maybe you'll have no enemies as you sit there in the dark listening your CD of the best ass kissing by John Sterling and Michael Kaye.

NOW THAT'S TORTURE!

I'm as cool as the other side of the pillow, infidel....

Why would I press the delete key? You're quite amusing and clever for some with a sub-50 IQ.

I figure the torture that inflict on you this winter will worth keeping you around for....

Love,
Darth Marc
