You know what really sucks way more than losing three of the four games in this weekend's series against the Red Sox? Having to sit and stew in it for an extra 24 hours while the Jays have an off day.
You might think that it's a good thing to have a day or so to sit back and reassess what's happening with the franchise, what with the crazy few weeks we've had: No meaningful games in September! Win streaks! Sweeps! Double headers! Wait a second...Meaningful games in September! And now, the crazy ride is coming to an abrupt end. We're dizzy.
The worst thing, though, about an off day in September is that it reminds us of how much we're going to miss baseball in the offseason. We're thinking of six months without a pitch thrown in anger, and frankly, it depresses the hell out of us.
All we can say is: You'd better appreciate these last few weeks, because you're about to spend a piss-freezing cold winter missing Kevin Mench.
