It looks like we now have our World Series lineup: the Philadelphia Phillies versus the Houston Astros. San Diego has officially been eliminated.
Okay, okay, I know: Trent Grisham is a member of the Friars. He was one of the Crew not terribly long ago and I do miss seeing him in a Brewers jersey. I have no ill will towards him.
It’s just their third baseman I can’t stand. We all know that name.
The guy is an absolute ass who thinks his shits smell like bakery fresh cinnamon rolls. He’s a dirty son of a bitch who pretty much killed a guy’s fucking knee, as well as his career. He tried to fucking spike Jesus Aguilar. He’s also tried his dirty sliding ass bullshit with the fucking Cardinals. He’s an asshole and he sure as hell doesn’t deserve to wear a goddamn baseball jersey for any team.
So yeah, hearing that the Phillies were running over the Padres made me very happy. I don’t want that asshole Machado anywhere near the World Series, let alone him getting a ring. Fuck that noise. I am extremely happy to hear that his season has come to an end. Good fucking riddance.
As for the Series: I’m actually hoping that it goes to the Phillies. Jean Segura is on the team and he’s a former Brewer as well. I wouldn’t mind hearing that he’s finally gotten a ring. I’m fine with that. But this might actually be a good Series this year. No Yankees, no Dodgers, no filthy red birds, no Mr. Asshole himself Manny Machado: it might actually be some enjoyable baseball. I might catch a game or two.
Pitchers and catchers report in 112 days or so. Spring Training isn’t that far away. That knowledge will keep me warm during the cold off season, like it always does.
