I was playing softball with some Orioles fans that were whining the Brian Roberts was batting 9th. Uh, excuse me? First off, who do you move down so he could move higher in the lineup? Secondly, Oriole fans have no room at all to complain about anything to do with the All-Star game. With Roberts, Tejada, Mora, and Ryan all there, there is no one else who could even come close.
Meanwhile, Detroit, who is freaking hosting the game, can't get Jeremy Bonderman (who is 11-4) or Brandon Inge or, heck, Kyle Farnsworth on the team. Meanwhile, that smug asshole Kenny Rogers will appear. I hope the fans at Comerica boo him to bits.
If the Orioles were smart, they would trade for Carlos Pena right now. He is tearing it up and the Tigers apparently have given up on him in favor of the fat carcass of Dmitri Young. Sad. But at least I'd have the jersey if he was in Baltimore.
The All-Star game should be good. It would be better if Jeremy Bonderman was there, but oh well. My house is ridiculously hot, though, but I'm not going out because I'm going out tomorrow night and two nights in a row is just too much for my bank account.
I so wish I was in Detroit right now.
