Seriously? I mean, seriously?!?
I shut down the television and went upstairs when it was 10-2. I checked back and it was something like 10-6 and I thought “they shouldn’t let it get that close.” Then I went to bed because I had a morning call with the UK that started way too damned early. And as I’m dialing into that, before the first coffee even, I see this Dan Uggla crap?
Look, I’m not even going to talk about this, okay? After the fourth quarter and OT in Brooklyn Monday night, I just don’t need to get back into that murderous-rage mindset because of Dan friggin’ Uggla stumbling his blind ass into a meatball.
We got good production from some of our younger hitters. The real worry coming out of this debacle is not Uggla, or even Jason Grilli (we knew he wasn’t the Kraken), or the pen in general. The problem – the true deep level concern – is that Julio Teheran has been giving up gopher balls like candy to babies in his last three starts.
We don’t need Grilli to be good. We don’t care what Uggla does this year. We care deeply about Julio Teheran’s performances. Because we need him to be an ace.
