I will not entertain the notion that Randy Johnson is old and over-the-hill and thus "ain't got it no more." He will right the ship and we will get some quality outings. Funny how he is giving up the Big Fly. Orlando Hudson had a huge day, I know JCP will be ranting and raving about how we "shoulda signed him," but LA is exactly the kind of team Hudson can help. They already have a solid lineup, his skills mesh perfectly with the team's needs. Yes, he's better by a long shot than any of our second basemen, but we need a bunch of real hitters first. But that's one of those things we beat to death in the off-season, eh? Today the baseball gods smiled most wickedly down upon us, forcing us to endure a humiliating loss in front of an Opening Day Smoggers crowd. And those cruel and petty gods opened every sore, teasing us with every one of our nightmares about 2009, most particularly our lack of punch. Or even the thought of punch. To paraphrase Fielding Mellish:
This offense is a travesty. It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
OK, sorry, I'm flogging the deceased equine again, eh? Good thing the bullpen has an off-day tomorrow and that team ace Matt Cain is the next man to take the ball.
