Pitcher Wanted, Apply Within

baseballThe other day J.P. Ricciardi publicly called out A.J. Burnett. In a similar fashion, I'm calling out our Raging Storm pitcher, M.F.

Mofo, that's three game day cancellations on your part. When a Patino or a Matty bails, it's no biggie. I shuffle the lineup a little and we don't miss a beat. You, however, are our pitcher. It's no secret we don't have an awesome backup, so when you bail on game day we're left scrambling. In the four games you've missed, we're 0-4, mainly because the competition walks their way to a big inning and buries us.

We're 5-5-1 overall, and that fifth loss was the game you were late for, so in games you show up to on time we're undefeated in six. With a reliable pitcher, we're pretty awesome. Without a reliable pitcher, we're a fairly mediocre bunch.

Mofo, what's the deal? Where's the commitment?

To everyone else, if you play slo-pitch and can pitch in games in the Etobicoke / Mississauga neck of the woods, please contact me. If you're a female who can pitch, I already love you. Drop Cito a line...

Mr. Boon.

I don't think I have to explain or justify to you why I can't make a game, even at the last minute.
I apologize to the rest of the team, but I'm sure they understand. I know I don't care if somebody can't make it at the last minute. Things come up, unexpectedly, life happens.
So again, Mr. Boon it really isn't any of your business or concern why I can't make a game. If you remember only one thing from all this, who got you in to all this fun softball in the first place?

Mofo, what took you so long?

Sure, shit comes up - I totally get that, but does shit come up a couple of hours before game time three times in less than two months?

Alexi told me the risk in calling you out is that you've got a real solid excuse, like something medical or something really serious, and when you dropped that bomb on me I'd feel like shit.

So why don't you privately drop that bomb on me and make me feel like shit so I'll understand.

Cito is here for you...

Is the S word still a bad word? I totally forgot...

I think the way to solve this problem is to get another pitcher so that we don't have to rely on one person. Life does happen...absolutely...but watching 10 runs get walked in really sucks and I HATE losing that way.

Hence the title of the entry, "Pitcher Wanted, Apply Within". If Marc wasn't a pitcher, this entry would never have been written.

I'm calling Paul Quantrill...
