Dear WIllie Harris,
What the fuck?
Witch City Sox Girl
I mean, you could smell "rally" in the air with Papi's 2-run homer and Tejada's gift screw up (allowing Wily Mo to get on base). The stage was set with Trotter up. He was ahead of the count. Things were looking promising. And then, Harris pulled the plug with his stupid, stupid, stupid steal attempt. What a crappy way to end a game that we had a legitimate shot at winning. At least Millar got to walk away thinking, "Hey, I got a homer off the knuckleball guy. Sweet." Good for Kevin.
So, tomorrow night we face ex-Pirate/Cub/Yankee pitcher Jon Leiber. And I will be in attendance at the games in Philadelphia AKA "Baby New York." Both Friday and Saturday nights. I'm taking this show on the road, reader, so watch out! It's my annual game with my always wise and generous surrogate dad. He's an O's fan living in the City of Brotherly Love. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new stadium! I used to go see the Phillies play at the old Veteran's stadium when I lived there a while ago. The new one is supposedly all "throw back" and whatnot.
