Donít it feel like somethiní from a dream
Yeah, Iíve never known nothing quite like this
Donít it feel like tonight might never be again
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part.
My 2005 Game Report record: 1 golden win, 5 losses. Thank you, Theodore Lilly.
But... you have to consider who he was facing.
Not so fast. It's another Pinch-Hit Game Report.
That's right, we're slackers. Though perhaps nobody is a bigger slacker than the man behind today's Game Report...
Today's account comes to you courtesy of Box regular Elijah, who explores John Gibbons' ninth-inning managerial decisions in the context of a poker game. If you'd like to try your hand at a Pinch-Hit Game Report, write us and we'll add your name to the list of potential contributors. If you haven't posted to Da Box regularly, we may ask you for a writing sample.
Thanks, and take it away, Elijah!
is the dead end of the road
I hate to say I told you so
But hey, I told you so
This was a game that the Blue Jays needed to win.
The Jays had the day off yesterday, but it has been 2 weeks since the last bullpen report, so it's that time again. No rest for the weary.
Well, that Halladay didn't show up yesterday. Just like his last game, Roy struggled to shut out his opponent. Unlike in Oakland, though, Roy received no run support from his 7 batters and Huckaby, and he get saddled with the loss.
Let's see if it's true:
In a fit to save a bit of power
He got fifty thousand watts
In a big acoustic tower
Or, as Vince Carter once said in happier times, ďITíS OVER!Ē
