Silva Gets Gold

. Thursday, May 13, 2010

Which one would you want?

In an early season where the greatest thing to cheer for is the 10 pound nachos served in a BP helmet, we can take solace in the fact that Carlos Silva has moved to 4-0, while Milton Bradley had to be shipping off to Bellevue for letting the Seattle weather get to him and accused Starbucks of being racist for assuming he liked his coffee black. So, in a move that clearly was a desperation attempt to get rid of Bradley, we have seemingly caught a rare lucky break. That being said, all luck is bound to run out, and we know the Cubs have a short supply.

Looking at the averages, for the most part, the team has been solid. The trouble isn’t getting the hits, but when we are getting them. Like the main character in King of Kong, it should only count when you perform when it matters. Of course, Ramirez continues to be worthless.

I am sooo good when no one is looking (not to be confused with so good lookin')

So here we sit, 5 games under .500, with 125ish to go. The good news the Cards have cooled down and no one in the Central seems to be playing great ball (the only team above .500 in the past 10 games are the Reds, and we all know what Dusty is capable of, so just give that a couple more months. Off day today. Hopefully they think about what the Pirates did to them last weekend and pull out (teehee) three in a row. Sadly, replace “Pirates” with any team in MLB and you can pretty much sum up my thoughts every 4 days.
