Andre Ethier Is Sad

Spirits weren't necessarily high in the Dodgers locker room following a 4-3 defeat to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The loss snapped a two game winning streak, and things won't get any easier when the four time defending National League East champion Philadelphia Phillies visit Chavez Ravine and put defending Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay on the mound.

When asked by pouched ZWR correspondent Matt Gelb about the prospects of facing Halladay, star outfielder Andre Ethier responded:
Pour soulever un poids si lourd,
Sisyphe, il faudrait ton courage!
Bien qu'on ait du coeur à l'ouvrage,
L'Art est long et le Temps est court.

Loin des sépultures célèbres,
Vers un cimetière isolé,
Mon coeur, comme un tambour voilé,
Va battant des marches funèbres.

— Maint joyau dort enseveli
Dans les ténèbres et l'oubli,
Bien loin des pioches et des sondes;

Mainte fleur épanche à regret
Son parfum doux comme un secret
Dans les solitudes profondes.
Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays.


  1. Perhaps if he tried to drop a deuce, he'd be alright. Cole Hamels knows!

  2. vous ne gagnerez pas Ethier!

  3. I was going to guess Baudelaire but it's in the labels. You couldn't find a more obscure French poet -- Apollinaire, Valery? I suppose those aren't very obscure either. Met's fans should read Cioran -- ZING french literature joke.

  4. That's just Luke being Luke
