things by which i am not impressed

  • the Papelbum's insistence on giving us The Matsuzaka Experience™ during the ninth inning. i have to tell you, one pitcher who needs to "keep things interesting" is plenty, thanks. just stick to sitting 'em down in order.
  • Joe Morgan's Managerial Skills. for real, Joe? you would *choose* to put Crawford on base & give Longoria a chance with bases loaded?? guess we see now why you aren't wearing a uniform & carrying a lineup card in some team's dugout.
  • Pedey joining Youk in the band of Non-DL Walking Wounded.
  • the lack of signing JayBay. for God's sake, Theo! at the pace he's going, you really think he's going to get *cheaper* if you wait??
  • dear dudes who make up the baseball schedule: what is the deal with sending the Sox on The West Coast Tour every time they finish playing the Rays at Fenway?
  • Matt Garza. and no, not because he seems to have our number (regardless of the outcome of the game last night). all that glove-wagging and nasty spitting make him one of my top most irritating pitchers to watch.
  • the way half the Rays promote a "Tobacco Free Florida" through commercials on my tv while the rest of them (i'm looking at you, BJ Upton and Evan Longoria!) look as though they couldn't cram so much as another speck of crap in their mouths. what about all the little kids i see wearing Longoria t-shirts & hanging on his every move? WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?? (ahem. heh.)

3 with their own thoughts:

Paps didn't make it easy, but once he had two guys on, he hasn't been that dominant with the fastball in ages. I mean, wow.

I'm sure it's nice for you once in awhile to get away from those horrid Rays announcers and enjoy the wise insights of Joe Morgan. (Riiiight.) Like I, too, was lying there in bed thinking, "Yes! Exactly! Pitch around Crawford and go after that bum on deck! Of course!"

Joe: That's just it though--he hasn't made it easy in *any* game yet this season. He was fantastic when he finally got around to striking out the side but for cripe's sake! Enough already with the making it "interesting" ya know?

Funny you should mention the Rays announcers vs ESPN. On Twitter Saturday, I ranked the top three worst broadcast teams to listen to: 3)ESPN/Joe Morgan (he's a dink who just rambles on incoherently & makes me crazy). 2)FOX/Buck-McCarver (so pro-Yankee, they might as well be YES, not to mention McCarver is the John Madden of MLB). 1) Rays coverage (they bring whining & homerism to levels never before seen!)

Um, are you speaking a foreign language? Because I have no idea what you are talking about. (HEE! I will ask my husband who, I believe, speaks the same language.)
