Game 37, White Sox at Mariners
Thank goodness that powerhouse Rangers team is out of here. Contreras v Silva, 7:10.
I’m eagerly looking forward to what Baker teased:
McLaren also had some interesting stuff to say about the state of the team — including that he is now putting what he thinks is the best nine out there each day without worrying about hurting anyone’s feelings — and I’ll get to that a little later.
So before he was putting out what he thought was a poor nine because he was worrying about feelings?
Does this mean that he and the team now feel that coming up with a better lineup is more important than having happy players and, presumably, a more harmonious clubhouse?
Who exactly was McLaren coddling, and why?
I hope these questions and more will be answered.
And if I could ask a favor, it would be great if despair didn’t veer into strange vaguely sexist territory tonight. No one’s going to be happy if this all slides into Ban Fest 2008.
LINEUP OF HURT FEELINGS
Feelings presumably hurt: Johjima
