What if They Gave a Ballgame and Nobody Came?

How fucking stupid is it that they have a mascot running around an empty stadium? I feel like Burgess Meredith in that episode of the Twilight Zone where he breaks his glasses when I watch these games.

even for a bad team they are having a horrible start.

36 days until September 1, will take a miracle...

At least Covid prevented me from spending money to watch this team in person this year. Seeing the ostrich live would be a once in a lifetime experience I guess

It's very rare that a ball hits the warning track in that area of the park when JBJ is in CF and the ball's not caught

Would've been a great season to grab $10 tickets off StubHub, roll in for 5 innings and a few beers, and then find something better to do in the city.

Somebody was joking today about filling in on the Marlins while their real team is quarantined. I think that's what the Sox have done with their pitching staff. I can't remember a year where I so often say, "who the heck is that?"

Like play Paddleton? What's there to do?

EDIT: Oh, never mind -- I got you. I'm going to go listen to disco songs, this is a bad night all around, for me and the team.

On second thought, forget the shitty baseball and the lunar lander.

I take comfort in the adage "every team is going to win 60 games, ..." I forget how it ends, but that's the gist..

Just batting practice with this guy. Don't know why he's taking so long between pitches - the results are the same either way.
