Game 36 vs. Mil., L 1-0:
What you did well: Waino figured out what he was doing wrong previously and pitched excellently. He allowed only two hits in 8 innings. Unfortunately, one of those hits was a homerun, but that shouldn't have mattered. Three bullpen members closed out the ninth. That's called teamwork, boyos.
Where you can improve: HIT! IT'S JEFF FREAKIN' SUPPAN.
Game 37 vs. Mil., L 2-8:
What you did well: Rookie Rasmus and Sort of Rookie Nick Stavinoha each pushed runs across home plate and made the game kind of close. Brendan Ryan made some deep pop fly catches out of his second base position that pissed off some teammates and the manager. This is in the good column because haterz just gotta hate, that's why.
Where you can improve: The Colonel was terrible. The box score says 5 2/3 innings, four earned runs, seven walks, but we saw that it was worse than that. No pitch was where it was supposed to be. It looked like he was just throwing linguine on the wall to see which strands would stick. Blaine Boyer let a protein deficient Prince Fielder (he's a vegetarian, you see) hit a three-run dinger.
So you see, while your grades aren't so high right now, there are signs of hope and you can build on what you are doing well and learn from your mistakes. Have a good day and send in whomever is next. *checks papers* The Nationals . . . great.
