Gee, I wonder if the Panglossian robe will fit? It's rare that I can be accused of blind optimism; usually I'm the one guilty of being a little too pessimistic.
But after last night's win, one I called in my exhausted delirium, "m***f***ing epic," it seems that I am in the minority in finding the 13-inning victory, after the bullpen meltdowns and the RISPs in extras, a positive.
I believe saylinara may be in my camp, but several nameless crawfish and the inimitable littlevisigoth saw nothing but negatives, despite the win.
I was so focussed on picking up that second game in six days on the Cardinals by hook or by crook. Way I figure, we got it.
I'm happy, even if I've been checking the official site all day, half-expecting some kind of "announcement" about our closer.
I've said it before and I'll say it again I'm sure: I could be wrong. But if we go out and take two of three from Los Tigres at Comerica, you'll know why. . . .
