Hell’s Pitching


For anybody who didn’t see last night’s games against the Dodgers let me tell you that it was quickfire duel that lasted less than 90 minutes. For anybody who did see it, can you let me know if it’s over yet?

Fortunately I was able to distract myself with American Idol and watching Gordon Ramsay breach every employer/employee relationship law on the statutes.

Can I add that whilst we all wish Doug Davis the best in his upoming surgery,  yesterday’s TV coverage during the game was WAY over the top. I hate to seem like heartless ******* but there is nothing intrinsically courageous about having surgery for thyroid cancer, it’s a necessity. Any courage will come if the operation is not successful and luckily that is highly unlikely.

My suspicion is that Doug would agree with this, and to effectively compare him (as was done last night) with a youngster who had undergone leukemia treatment is borderline offensive. Hopefully we can now move on and look forward to Doug pitching again in a couple of months.
