Today marks the first game of the second third of the season, and folks, the first third didn't give much cause for joy in Mudville. Third place in the weakest division in baseball is not exactly the catbird's seat, more like perching on the middle spot over the transmission hump, squeezed in between your dopey big brother and annoying little sister in the back seat of the family station wagon. So, not a whole lot of fun to be had in this season yet. To make up the fun deficit, the Mrs. and I watched the first two episodes of Brockmire on demand the other night. The rest of season one costs $2.99 an episode from our cable provider, so last night we signed up for a free trial month of Hulu to watch the rest of the first season, we can get all of season two on demand once we're caught up. Hank Azaria is a national [redacted] treasure.
Kyle Gibson (1-3, 3.57 ERA) on the bump, going for the series win against Clevinger (4-2, 3.14 ERA). So what do you say? How about we kill another three hours on our slow and painful march to the grave? Play ball!
