My feelings upon retrospection of how Roy pitched last night are more tightly bound with relevance and impact than a simile that "like likes" a painstakingly apt metaphor. But we must quantify these days, emotion reserved for the poets and coffee shop discussion ("Ginsberg over ginseng, so funny I could howl!").
To the GROwL:
Sporting! While on the topic, a guest email, from Akon [a big fan, whose input I value, though ever the master at separating feelings from duty (I believe you just bore witness to that!) I did not factor into the ratings] :
"I feel you creepin', I can see you from my shadow. Wanna jump up and play catch with Yovani Gallardo."
Roy. Ah, yes. He improved upon his 7 to 1 K/BB ratio, lowered his 2.28 ERA, and brought right back to the surface with Wednesday night's despair all of the sad feelings that have been haunting Diamondback hitters since that night by the magnolia tree. Look on the bright side, guys, it can only get better moving on.
