Go Crew! and playoffs
Asian reporter Trisha Takinawa: "What bring you good luck Turnbow?"
Derrick Turnbow: "I guess this," as he comes through the mop of hair on his head.
The crew with an amazing comeback tonight has shown that they mean business. I'm proud of them for not having a losing season, but I still want them to have a winning season (and Turnbow to break Kolb's record from last year). Who cares about a single draft pick. This isn't the NBA. There's like 100 rounds anyway. The crew needs this "phase shift" in the minds of the fans and the media. It's all about having a winning attitude (and a few hundred million dollars if you're in the AL East).
Tonight worked out well for the playoff situation too, (depending on the CWS/CLE game). Ideally, for me, the Indians sweep the Bite Cox (as John-E calls them) and clinch the wildcard. Meanwhile both games in the remainder of the $$ series go into extra innings and it still splits so that there has to be a playoff game on Monday and that goes into extra innings, including bench clearing brawls that not only injure half the teams, but land the other half in jail. That way, no matter who wins, neither the Bankees or Red Sux will make the second round of the playoffs.
As much as I hate to see the cwbs win, although I admit I was cheering for them, just so the Phillies can possibly stop the Asstros from making the playoffs. I practically hate them just as much as the Red Sox and Yankees, just because of Clemens and Pettite. So I have to cheer for the cubs. But even if they do win the next two, and the Brewers lose the next two, the Crew will finish ahead of the cwbs, because they won the season series between the two.
So, congratulations to the Brewers for clinching 3rd place. Although I have yet to see Mr. 3000, this is apparently a big thing. And congrats for breaking the losing streak. It's funny to think that the Braves' streak of winning the NL East is actually longer than the Brewers' winning streak. Ideally, I prefer to see a rematch of the 1995 world series this year. Maybe I'll even be able to go to some of the games, since the Braves don't even sell out half the time.
Ok, fuck, the Bite Cox just took a 3-1 lead. That sucks. So we might have a three way playoff come next week. We'll see. Or the Indians may just call it a year. It was a nice run while it lasted. Ok, hm, tough to decide who I'd want to see in the World Series from the American League then. The White Sox would have the lowest payroll. But they are from Shitcago and I'm sure plenty of chubs fans would jump on that bandwagon, even though they are supposed to be bitter enemies. Shit, whatever happens I want the NL team to go all the way. Fucking stupid all-star game. Oh well, home field isn't that big of a deal, is it?
Alright, that's all from me. Holla at Jenks moving into a tie for 1st in the NL in HBPs tonight and to adding another pickoff to their major league leading total.
