This taco is brought to you courtesy of Jacoby Ellsbury.
Oh hell yeah. Taco Bell knows what it is doing. Namely, creating a folk-hero out of Jacoby Ellsbury. Everyone in America gets for free what some wouldn't even consider paying for. Outstanding. Me? I let someone borrow my ID so they could get two. Did it work?
Also, baseball was played. Schilling was solid, Oki and Paps were phenomenal at the end.
Oki and Paps: 3 2/3, 1 H, 6 Ks. That's how you dominate the end of ballgames. Oki looked as good as he did at any point in the season.
[Censored] that Mike Lowell. Love ya buddy, but I was sure YOU were the right choice if we decided to sit anyone for two games. I was wrong, and now the choice that isn't even mine is made a lot tougher for me.
So, we did the same thing to Ubaldo Jimenez that we did to Fausto Carmona in Game 2 of the ALCS. Exploited his weaknesses until he was no longer a factor in the game. (Well, y'know, aside from taking the loss) You see his stuff and it's easy to tell how good he'll be when he learns some control. Let's hope for the sake of Rockies' fans that he has a bit more maturity than, say, Daniel Cabrera in that sense.
Side note: I am looking at a table lamp that has more maturity than Daniel Cabrera which = good news for the Rockies.
Brian Fuentes was impressive in his 2 innings of work.
Who had a perfect night at the plate? David Jonathan Drew: 2-2, BB, HBP. This guy is going to be a factor, and to be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing him leadoff or 2nd if Youks sits any of the next three. Bash me on that one in the comments.
Game III in Colorado. Dice-BB vs. The Velvet Dragon Slayer at Mile High Stadium (y'know, if you listen to McCarver*.
* Maybe this means that he'll go to where it used to be rather than Coors Field on Saturday. Optimistic?
