Can there be anyone sadder this morning than the poor guy who knocked the ball out of Moises Alou’s glove Tuesday night?
Well, this experience hasn’t been a total loss. The last few weeks have actually led my wife to become a baseball fan, to the point that she’s questioning umpires’ calls and debating the wisdom of the two-strike fastball.
We’ll be pulling for the Marlins in the Series. We felt bad for Dontrelle Willis after the Cubs knocked him around, Mike Lowell seems like a really good guy, Miguel Cabrera and Josh Beckett look like future stars, and you have to love any successful pro athlete with a nickname like “Pudge”.
