If The Otters, of the Sea variety , are to come on strong during the remaining 45 days of the bazeball [sic] season and win one for the Zigger, here’s what needs to happen: Miggy Tejeda, Papi Ortiz, Vernon Wells, Andrew Jones, Matt Cain, Jered Weaver, and Barry Zito must put up the type of numbers down the stretch I expected all year. Not to much to ask!!!!??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????
In addition to Cain and Zito, Brad Hennesey and another one of my starting pitchers, Tim Lincecum [Escobar, Maine, Lidge, Wagner and Street round out my staff] are all Giants. Said San Franciscans, with some pressure from the “Barry Bighead’s Dog and Pony Show” removed, must finish strong in order to boost me to the top.
Since, “it ain’t over ’til it’s over” [FYI, Everett “Rocky” Bridges , not Yogi, said it first.], I’ll not give up hope.
