It’s the First Inning, and I’m Already AggravatedSeptember 30, 2011 at 8:33 PM | Posted in Baseball | 1 Comment
I am the first to admit that I’ve become a bad fan. I’m impatient and overly critical.
I wonder if it’s asking too much for our ace to get through even one inning without giving up a run?
I wonder if I’m asking too much for Cano and Arod to get a hit with men on first and second?
I know that it’s a nine inning game and you can give up a run in the first and shut the opponents down the rest of the way. I know that the first at-bat is only one of 4 or 5. I know all that.
And I’m not talking with a twist: I’m not trying to convince you that I am really a great fan in the clothes of a bad one.
Now there’s a rain delay and I wonder how you can, in good conscience, start a game at 8:47 EST?
