It's days like this that I miss Doug Mirabelli. I love that man, for reasons that far outweigh any benefits he ever brought to the team. Do not misunderstand - he brought great benefits, but my love was definitely out of proportion. I'm sure I'm not the only one who misses Doug Mirabelli... because more than anything else, I hate Kevin Cash. It's like he's pretending to be Doug, and that's just not acceptable. I mean, what's with the stupid facial hair? Doesn't Cash know that it's a Mirabelli trademark?! Besides, wouldn't everyone much rather look at Doug every fifth day? You know what? Even if I'm alone on that, I don't care. I don't see why we had to dump my beloved Dougie for that wanna-be Cash. Face the facts... Cash is no better than Doug at anything. He can't hit better, he can't catch better, and he really can't even run better. As far as age goes, Wakey's going to retire soon, so it's not like we were going to have Dougie around for much longer anyway. But now, he's gone, and I miss him so. I hope he's happy where ever he is.
Best quote I've heard from Beckett in a while: "We can get it from pretty much anywhere."
So we have Bartolo going tonight against Cole Hamels... assuming he doesn't eat him first. Cole Hamels sounds like something you would be served in a German restaurant. Let's hope for his sake that this is not the first thing that pops into Colon's head. Let's get to the game!
