You know, I think I'm about ready for the season to end. Everybody's hurt, the bullpen is gassed, the rotation is a mess, the team is losing games...I'm ready to be done with 2008 and move on to 2009, I think.
Last night encapsulizes what is so frustrating about Vicente Padilla. He looked great for 5 innings, then just imploded. He's maddening.
Mike Heika's story today is about how the Rangers blew it for letting the "unstoppable" Armando Galarraga go.
