Absolutely Crap-ulous

Jesus H. Christ in a Christmas tree! I couldn't believe the reports this afternoon that Carlos Zambrano and Michael Barrett started swinging at each other during the game.

To paraphrase the radio announcer from Bull Durham, I don't know what the hell those guys are thinking about, but it sure isn't baseball.

After a brief period earlier this month when we actually played decently, we've fallen apart. Frankly, we're playing like crap. I hesitate to echo Sully's line about the season "spiralling out of control," but if the spiral fits...

Zambrano and Barrett's behavior today was shameful. Just shameful.

The team said after the game that both players would be disciplined. Good. Suspend the pair of them for a week. It won't help get our season back on track, but if we're going to lose, we might as well lose with some sort of dignity, and not like a pack of jackasses.
