Enough Is Enough

16 Oct

It’s bad enough we gave up seven runs in one inning, had our third straight pitcher unable to pitch five full innings, and we’re now down 3 games to 1 in the ALCS. But did Joe Buck and Tim McCarver have to bring up — not once or twice but at least three times — that today, October 16, is the fourth anniversary of the fateful ALCS game seven against the Yankees? After winning the World Series in 2004, it’s safe to say that wound has healed (maybe not completely, but it no longer stings). It’s amazing that even when the Yankees aren’t even playing, the guys on Fox still show their loyalty.

As for me, I’m already thinking back to the good old days of spring training. I’m hopeful that Beckett will pick us up on Thursday and shift the momentum back our way. But at this point, it’s just not looking good. It’s not that I’m giving up; I’m not. But this isn’t 2004. I think the season may actually be coming to a close this time.
