8 Runs and 16 K's Later...

Those fond of HBO's Sex and the City are familiar with Carrie's narrative style. She'll often say, "2 hours and 3 martinis later.." or something like that.

Well that's how I feel about the Marlins. I went into the game all excited, ready for the second sweep of the season. Now? All I can think about is how THEY STRUCK OUT 16 FREAKING TIMES!

This coming, of course, on the heels of my pronouncement that the Marlins are officially good. Well I still think it, but tonight sure didn't help the cause. If you examine the 8-0 box score, you'll find 3 hits and 16 strikeouts. Here's the K tally:

Hanley Ramirez, 3
Robert Andino, 3
Luis Gonzalez, 3
Matt Treanor, 2
Josh Willingham, 1
Mike Jacobs, 1
Cody Ross, 1
Jorge Cantu, 1
Wes Helms, 1

So as I was saying...8 runs and 16 K's later...#@#$@*&#!#

Now let's take that out on the Nats tomorrow!

I know, but 16 is a lot, especially when you only have 3 hits.

And I thought I was the only guy who could unabashedly confess a fondness for "Sex and the City"...

I don't know EJ. Sex and the City just gives me the za za zoo.

Ok...time to return to masculinity.
