The Month That Would Never End


You know, forfeiting would have produced the same score without the eyesore.

I think everybody needs to rip the month of June out of their calendars (wall or desk, it doesn't matter), take it to the Shea Stadium parking lot before Wednesday's game, and burn it as a sacrifice to the baseball gods. When doing so, perform the following chant:

Bel-tran...bomaye! Bel-tran...bomaye! Bel-tran...bomaye! Bel-tran...bomaye! Bel-tran...bomaye!

Why not? Nothing else has worked.

(Oh, and don't forget to vote for Paul Lo Duca for the All-Star game.)

Everytime I think it can't get worse, it gets worse.

Once we were down 5-0 yesterday early in the game, the team mailed it in. I mean 5 runs for Santana can last a month, but still...

I told my dad that forfeiting would produce the same score... as we watched the 9th inning in horror from the Upper Deck :(

Anonymous,

Carelessness. I really didn't know what that was. I probably should have looked it up.

I just hate everything June right now.

How's Pelfrey doing down in AAA? I think it may be time to swap him with Sosa in the bigs.

There are still 3 more slots left in this current rotation for me to be proved wrong regarding my "only one good performance in each" theory. Let's hope it happens tonight with Ollie against an unproven Scott Baker.

Santana was ON last night. Maine wouldn't have had a chance.

Good job Jeff!

Let's not forget former NFL coach June Jones, shall we?

JMP said...

fyi, Toronto released John Thomson today. He was stinkin' up the joint at AAA.

No prob, bub. I'm just tired of the racism, religiousism, and militarisms on many sports sites--and in the stadiums, too. (Greed is bad enough.)I was a bit hurt by that crack, but I'm glad to see you're man (or woman) enough to admit an error. And agreed, June sucks. I'm glad no one's using the term "June Swoon"--that term is used for wannabe teams that tank in June, but the Mets came in as favorites. Now it hurts...

Let's stick with OLLIE BOMAYE.

In acknowledgement of your theatric talents, I think we should call Ollie the Matador and his cheering section dress accordingly and hang horns for his strikeouts............

June Carter on your hate list? You must REALLY hate this month. The Man in Black might have a little something to say about that from heaven.

I am guessing you are not making immediate travel plans to Juneau, Alaska, am I right?

Cheer up, M. At least we're all in this together. :\

I'm trying to think of this as a cathartic experience. A L - O - O- O- O- O- O- N- G cathartic experience. (See my post "Catharsis":
