In Baltimore, Boston trails 5-4 after 8 innings, though with Ortiz and Ramirez coming up. Josh Beckett got racked-11 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Manager Terry Francona is home with his family after the death of his mother in law.
There is a rumor afoot that my location may be shutting down, which makes me think a couple of different things, all at once:
1)Why not? They haven't given a shit about us for years.
2)I've been through this rumor-reassure-rumor cycle before, and I'm not going to believe any of it until they shut the damn door.
3)What the fuck? They give us nothing to work with, then complain when we can't do anything with it.
I'm just tired. I'm in a dark, hopeless place mentally. I'm tired of being alive.
Boston lost, 5-4. Beaten by the immortal Jeremy Guthrie, who throws about as hard as I do.
Why the hell not?
