I'm in a foul mood, folks. And I mean a REALLY foul mood. Just to warn you, I may be in a foul mood until the end of October. It's that foul. It's "so pissed off that lightbulbs pop as I walk past" kinda angry, OK?
Why, you ask? Let me $&^*#@% tell you why.
John Olerud just signed with the DAMN YANKEES!
I'm so pissed off at the Mariners right now I might just stop watching their games. Dropping Big Rude off the roster was the worst fucking possible move they could have made. What was their excuse? "Oh, he has a .245 batting average!" AND?!?!?! Let's take a look at the rest of your roster, shall we? Of all the people on that list, I only see ONE person above .300 (Ichiro), and only THREE people who are even close! And of those three people who are close ONLY ONE OF THEM IS A REGULAR STARTER!
So you drop Big Rude because of his batting average, and yet Edgar Martinez is only a few points higher, but he can't run, can't play any position, and can't hit anymore! You keep the old guy with no legs, but you let go a player who sucks up any baseball that comes within six feet of him? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING, YOU BUMBLING MORONS????? I'm still not convinced that John Olerud doesn't have his own gravitational field, because he makes catches at first base that any other player in the game can only DREAM of! Yeah, how's that infield doing now, Bill Bavasi? How the fuck is it doing now that you dumped the anchor? How many balls got thrown away because the newest schmuck to play first base CAN'T FUCKING CATCH? How many more errors do you have now? WAY TOO MANY, but you don't give a shit do you?
Grrrrrrrrrrr! And the worst part is, I won't be able to root against the Yankees this fall. Because Olerud deserves another ring. He's the best damn defensive first baseman in the American Leagues, and Seattle gave him the shitty end of the stick. Big Rude deserved much better treatment than what the Mariners gave him. His batting average might not have been what it was two years ago, but without him at first, our infield is flat out sucking like a ten dollar whore on payday.
So expect me to be pissed off this fall.
Dear god, please let the NFL season start soon.
