A forced hiatus

Unfortunately, my computer is so hosed that I cannot stay online for any more than a few minutes at a time. I am writing this from Tom’s laptop. Jessica is going to come over next weekend and take a look at my baby, and see if she can work some magic on the thing, but until then, I’m afraid I simply won’t have the ability to write. It’s unfortunate, because I had a post about everything that’s been going on lately in a Word document, but I can’t get the computer to behave long enough to get it up online. And forget about putting pictures up.

Rest assured, however, that I am more than sufficiently bummed out by the loss of Ryan Langerhans, Doug Fister, David Pauley, and as of today, Erik Bedard. Maybe I just need a week to recover from this, anyway. I knew it was coming, but knowing it’s coming, and finding out who’s going are two totally different things.

Until then, I have a few games I’ll be at, and I’ll likely be on Twitter talking about things there, like I normally do. So I should be back next weekend or sometime shortly thereafter. See you at the Safe!

    Can’t wait til you’re back. I need to know everything there is to know about Bedard.

      Bedard is great when he’s healthy, but it seems like he has to be 100% to be all he can be. He has some wicked pitch movement, and when he’s on target, he can be unhittable. Unfortuantely, we haven’t been able to see much of that particular Erik Bedard this year due to his various injury issues. There’s a joke running around the blogosphere that he’s made of glass.
      As far as personality, if your reporters over there want someone to wax philosophic about the art of pitching, they’re barking up the wrong tree. Bedard’s just a guy who wants to play the game, he’s not really into giving soundbites or quotes, and he was not a favorite of the media here for that very reason (even though they all knew it coming in). It took them a few years, but they eventually learned to leave him alone. LOL
      He’s a good pitcher, if he’s able to stay healthy, and he was definitely able to redeem himself for a short while this year. I will miss him.
      Also, nickname; Frenchie. 😉
