Scott Olsen Has Every Reason To Be A Dick

I never really understood why the seemingly evil Scott Olsen was always in a sour mood. The unapologetic 24 year old nicotine fiend rarely smiles, hardly pays attention to any fans, and is an all around “bad boy”. While Olsen hasn’t made the best decisions in recent years, he has kept him self out of trouble this year. He has stayed focused and has pitched as well as he possibly can. However, his last 9 starts have ended in no decisions, or losses. Sadly, it isn’t even his fault. Olsen usually maintains the lead and the bullpen always manages to ruin the win for him.

For example, this evening’s game against the Rays. Scott Olsen pitched a terrific 7 innings, giving up only 4 hits and 2 runs. Upon leaving the game, Marlins were up a run. All the bullpen had to do was hold it. Reynel Pinto was the first to fill in the pitcher’s spot and immediately, bases were loaded. Joe Nelson then came to try to “save the day”, and while he did well and got two forced outs, he walked two, allowing the Rays to score twice and take the lead. Justin Miller then came in and with a single pitch, ended the top of the 8th.

Scott Olsen has delivered each and every time he has pitched over the last couple of months and the poor guy has not gotten a win since early May. And with as much as I hate Olsen’s pessimistic attitude, I feel that he deserves so much better. So go ahead Scottie, you have every right to be an a*shole. Throw your fit in the dug out, flip off a fan, go kick a dog…. I deeply sympathize with your dilemma. It is just complete and utter bullsh*t.

  1. Well, Olsen wouldn’t have even been in position to win if if wasn’t for his RBI “single” in the fourth inning that should have been ruled an error by Evan Longoria. He apparently lost the ball in the “twilight”. Still, the Marlins bullpen was pretty terrible. Percival was terrible for the Rays too. My heart is still pounding from how he almost managed to blow the game in the bottom of the ninth.

  2. What is up with bullpens these days? We are having the same problem in Cleveland. I heard one stat that said the Tribe was 2-11 when LEADING in the 7th inning… Excuse me? UGH… Hopefully, our respective ‘pens will get their sh!t together…
