Severe Depression Causes Extreme Writer’s Block

It has been a few days since I posted anything. My last post consisted of bitter gossip about A-Rod and Madonna “gettin’ it on”. I tell myself every day that has passed that I should write something, anything; so as not to disappoint the few readers that I have. I apologize for being selfish, but being in the state of mind that I have been as of late, any single piece of literature that I would have posted on this site would have been guarunteed to be absolute garbage. I figured I would spare you.
I’m sure many are wondering why I am so down in the dumps. If you haven’t the slightest idea, you can all go back and read an article that I posted about a month ago when I was in a similar rut. Otherwise, I am sure most of you heard of the last two Marlins “games”, if you can even call them that. I am sick of the heart break, I have had enough of the disappointment, and I don’t think I can bear to witness one more agonizing defeat. Thursday evening’s game against the Rockies was enough to make my gentle heart shut down, and with that being the case, imagine my surprise when I saw that the Marlins scoring 17 runs was not even good enough to get a win. Again, all because of the bullpen. I had a beautiful July 4th watching the Jupiter Hammerheads destroy the Palm Beach Cardinals, but even this victory was ruined by the ridiculous loss by the Marlins.
There are very few people I hate in this world. By reading any of my other posts, I’m sure you know that at least one of them is Taylor Tankersley. I can’t express to you the excitement I felt in my soul when I saw that he was banished to AAA, and even more, I can’t express to you the horrible sinking feeling I felt when I saw that the Marlins were idiotic enough to call him back up. Reynel Pinto and Kevin Gregg, once two men I worshiped for performing so well, are now two men I wish I never had the displeasure of even knowing their names.
We now sit 3.5 games behind 1st place, with the Mets closely trailing behind us. I don’t want to say it, but I don’t think I have even an ounce of faith left in me. Our season is over. We had a good run. Our group of scrubs held it together long enough to bring us this far, but like always, all good things must come to an end; and the men that I once looked upon as heroes have now shown their true colors. I truly pity the men on our team that give us their very best, only to have the bullpen throw it all away.

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.
