Is anyone else getting bored with pre-season baseball, or is it just me? Ok, maybe not bored, so much as anxious to get the real games started. Today’s 2-2 tie game after 10 innings with the Phillies and Cardinals made me want to bust out my pillow and binky for a long afternoon nap. Yawn!
Ryan Howard attempted to wake me from this slumber by hitting a home run in the 2nd inning, but alas, I was forced to go right back to totally zoning out. But I cannot watch ESPN or Comcast Sportsnet instead of listening to this game, because all these stations are talking about is college basketball and March Madness. My madness is right here and now: I am going INSANE waiting for Opening Day!
Some may have found young pitcher Carlos Carrasco’s outing today quite stimulating; after all, he is sort of still in the running for the 5th starters role. But really, the race has come down to Chan Ho Park and JA Happ.
So, I just wasn’t that interested in what Carrasco may do, if I am being totally honest. Then again, in case anyone else would like to know, Carrasco gave up 2 runs, 3 hits and 3 walks in 4 2/3 innings. Not super, not bad; but he did an ok job. Zzzzzzz….
Chase Utley had 2 hits in the game and a run scored, but since the game was on the radio, I could not watch him wiggle his newly surgically repaired hip as he trotted the base path. Not to mention a few other key areas…thus, SO not interesting. Even cutie Chad Durbin pitching 1 1/3 innings of hit-free ball could not rouse me. Maybe if someone had started a bench clearing brawl, then perhaps I could have snapped out of this coma? No such luck…
