A Watched Dodger Never Clinches

Mixing Metaphors

Mixing Metaphors

That’s it, I’m sick of watching this listless team play zombie baseball and I’m not watching until they wrap this thing up and head to the post season.  After another embarrassing loss to the Padres last night I am officially done with it.  I wanted to hear Vinny’s call live, I wanted to watch the champagne celebration, I wanted to see all of it.  Now I just want this season to be over with.  The worst thing (or best, you could argue) is that neither the Cardinals nor the Phillies have been on fire lately and the Dodgers still have a decent chance at keeping home field advantage through the post season and the way things are going now they’re going to need every advantage they can get.

So tonight I’m going to play softball and then I’m going to come home and watch The Office and figure out what to do about the end of this fantasy baseball season but the one thing I’m not going to do is even think about the Rockies (who never lose) coming into town tomorrow.  I haven’t quit on them and I get that every team goes through some periods where they don’t look good but are we even sure there hasn’t been some weird body swapping going on with these guys?  Did the doctors from (the Oscar-snubbed) Face/Off get a hold of Andre Ethier and Manny Ramirez and do some sort of switcheroo?  It’s one thing to get your guts ripped out like the Jon Broxton debacle in Pittsburgh but they’ve just rolled over and died these last few games.  Please guys, wrap this thing up so I can go back to watching you.

    What? They’ve scored one run or less in of 4 of the last 6. What’s wrong with that?

    Yeah, I don’t like this one bit. I also don’t like Atlanta’s now 0% chance of capturing the wildcard, either. Now L.A. gets … who … the Cards? That not-playing-a-team-in-your-own-division-in-the-first-round-of-the-playoffs rule sucks … unless of course the Rockies sweep the Dodgers to end the season. Ugh.
