Holiday Weekend Recap: New Lows

. Thursday, July 7, 2011

A few items to catch us up.

- Remember when the phrase "3 in a row against the Nats" was uttered in a positive light? More than that, remember when it was a virtual lock that we'd be happily talking about 3 games against the Nats? We've fallen pretty far in a couple of years and are paying more than ever for it. I almost hope we lose today, just to dig the pit a little deeper for Kenney and Hendo.

- Before that, we fapped away the second series against the White Sox, because it's apparently our thing now to lose to them. Hey, if the players don't give a shit, why should I?

- One guy in the All Star game this year. That's now 11 out of the last 15 years that's happened. One of those years was Steve Trachsel. HA!

- Let's end on a positive - Starlin Castro is that lone All-Star representative. I'm extremely happy about that, and would be even happier if this is the start of his challenging Ernie Banks's record of 14 NL All Star appearances. A man can dream.
