I’m feeling fortunate on a couple counts right now. For one thing, blowouts are always easier for me to come to terms with – not so much the problems that might underly the loss, but the fact of the loss itself – than close losses. So whatever.
For another thing, I’m on my way to Chicago right now for a couple games this week, so I could only follow this one on the radio for the early innings. It was clear within a couple frames that it was going to be an intolerable affair, so that made it all the easier to slide out of focus.
We’ll get into the particulars tomorrow, but you need look no further than the walk column to get a good sense of this one. Alas.
