On the Mound
Wondering . . .
It’s game four of the series and it’s just too easy to root against my team. Despite the millions of dollars I earn from The Boss, I despise the pinstripes. They represent all that is wrong with the game.
No, I would never tank against my team. I will always play as well as I can. But I can’t help but think it would be best for everyone if we lose tonight. Clevelanders have been waiting since the 1940s. Isn’t that worth something?
Ah, already down 1-0 after the leadoff homer. It’s destiny, I think.
I am the stopper tonight. How long will they keep me out here?
It’s madness and I need help.
