Disaster With A Side Order Of Delusion

Nuke LaFarnworth has just about been replaced by Nuke LaChamberlain.

Nuke: “I held it like an egg.”
Crash: “Yeah, and he scrambled that son of a b****.”

Side Notes:

- Still can’t fathom how a game that looked as good as it did at the start could become such a nightmare by the end.

- Digesting The Disaster That Is Joba Chamberlain:

In 17 games this season, he’s lasted more than 6 innings just twice.
9 hits in each of his last 3 outings.. [in just 5.1, 3.2, and 4.1 innings..]
Managed to accomplish a 9 pitch 1st in this one, only to follow it with a 29 pitch 2nd.
Bats jumped on Saunders early.. and he lasted longer than Chamberlain.
Is king of the no-decision.. which may actually be benefiting him.

And he’s beyond delusional.

Joba’s Latest Various Statement’s of Denial:

“I think things are going well.”
“I made great pitches throughout.”
“You can’t change the past.”
“The last two starts is the best my stuff’s been all year.”
[Last two starts: 3.2 innings, 8 runs & 4.1 innings, 5 runs..]
“The sun is going to come up tomorrow.”

I sh*t you not on all of the above.

-
Jeet with a four hit night.. and a Castillo-esque dropped pop-up. Not kidding. Ball must’ve had a mind of it’s own.. never seen
that happen to the Capt’n.

-
Another game, another bomb. A-Rod now one behind Palmeiro on the
seemingly pointless all-time HR list now. With or without the ‘roids
though, Alex is a beast.

-
Posada bare handed play = sick. Facial expression he gave after it =
siiiiick. I’ve realized the reason he and Burnett have the ultimate
chemistry.. badazz’s think alike. Gave Figgins a good stare down.

- Despite the bashing that could [and has been] rained upon Brian Bruney tonight and of late, hey, the guy got it right in the 8th.

- *Virtual bowdown* to Jonathan Sanchez on the would-be perfecto. Uribe must love himself.

Leader Of The Crapfest:

Fact Of Baseball:
Offense gives you five runs, bright idea wouldn’t be to give them back.

Start breathing through your eyelids.

On Deck: Interesting pitching matchup.. Pettitte taking on Jered Weaver. Redemption after that last start by Andy would be much appreciated.

There are always games like this; and let’s face it – in the regular season – the Angels are tough to beat! We have no trouble with them in the post-season, but the regular season?

Julia is a wise sage. I agree with her.

I love that “That probably shouldn’t have happened…” picture, though.

Joba has been f’ing brutal, dude. I’ve been trying to be patient, but it’s getting me very, very riled up.

we’re all losing patience with him. the main thing is really what IS wrong with him? unless he is hurt why is he so different than the Joba that was starting games last year before the shoulder thing?

anyway, when are you doing another live event. that was fun.

Joba would do well to shut up and just pitch (well)… still think he needs to be a setup guy but what the F do I know?

Jonathan Sanchez is Puerto Ricano, btw. Show your pride!

I wish I could say today’s game was a pick-me-up, but it was more of the same. Andy did a Joba with his meltdown in the fifth. The difference was in the post-game comments. Andy actually took responsibility, although he seemed sort of shellshocked. Is it possible we’ll beat the Angels on Sunday????

If you were upset with Friday’s game I can’t imagine how you are feeling after yesterday’s game. Ouch.

Every team has that string of bad pitching. And Joba is inexperienced, no doubt. Petitte, no excuse. Look at it this way…you’re trying to keep it interesting in the AL East. Very kind of you.

I don’t think Chamberlain will ever be anything more than a mediocre starter at best. He could be the best closer in baseball if he was out in the pen. His stuff just doesn’t translate over 5+ innings very well.

I don’t know why we can’t figure out the Angles or the Red Sox. It’s ridiculous.
