Today is one of those days that I wish there wasn’t a game tonight because I need a day off to get over how aggravated I got from watching that entire game last night.
Which I know is ridiculous. The team is (now) 62-68 so I should be able to just watch these games and then let them go, right? Usually I can do that, but Aceves blowing a save (and getting the loss) the day he came back from a suspension (caused because he flipped out when Bobby Valentine didn’t use him) makes me wish for a rain out today. I’m hoping to feel differently by 10 tonight because the idea of watching Zach Stewart pitch is compelling,
Maybe I’m just sleepy? Game ended just after 1am and I fell asleep at about 3…maybe a nap will change my feelings about Aceves?
(It’s fair to note that Bobby V, thanks to an over-taxed bullpen, used Aceves for two innings last night instead of just the 9th, and I should probably toss some of my annoyance his way…but it’s tough to do that for me because of Aceves’ suspension. I can’t remember the last time a player made me that genuinely mad. Such a stupid, selfish thing to do. I’ve been supporting him all season and I get he’s doing a job he hadn’t been doing before but pulling the crap he did will sit with me for a long time)
