Near Perfection

Thoughts going through my head as David Wells put on a clinic last night:

Bottom of the 2nd inning: This is nice, we’re pouring on major run support for Wells. I wish I didn’t feel this way, especially after Boomer mowed down the Cardinals like chopped liver, but I still don’t trust the man. He’s been too inconsistent this year, sometimes explodes on the mound, and often times has too much control, if that’s possible. Plus, anyone who gets lit up by the friggin Oakland Athletics needs to be examined.

Top of the 4th inning: Man, is Boomer putting on a show tonight or what? Sure, it’s only the fourth inning and he’ll probably blow it later in the game, but I’ve never seen a guy hitting his spots like he has tonight. From my view, every time Tek set up somewhere, BAM! There goes the ball. It’s uncanny, almost unreal. He’s got decent speed too, just nails the right location on what seems like every single pitch. Seeing him and Cap’n Tek work together like this gives me the willies. Good ones.

Bottom of the 5th inning: Alright. This is good. We’ve got some runs on the board, Boomer is working on a near perfect game. Wait, he hasn’t given up a hit yet, has he? Interesting…

Top of the 6th inning, 1 out: Just struck out Wily Mo Pena, and is now only 11 outs away from introducing me to pure hysteria. I’m out of my seat, jumping around, this is just the way I am. He’s got a hell of a long way to go, but it’s re-assuring that he’s been familiar with this type of situation before. Plus, this is the Cincinnati Reds. Most Beer League teams could beat Cincy on the road. This. Can. Happen.

Top of the 6th inning, 2 outs: Just got some backup catcher, Sardinha I think, to fly out to center. I just peed my pants, man, I actually believe this is going to happen.

Top of the 6th inning, 2 outs, 0-2 on Freel: There’s this buzzing in my ear that I can’t seem to get out. Maybe it’s the presence of MISTER BOOMER WELLS making my brain go insane. That made zero sense.

Damn, Freel just got a hit and the no-hit bid is over. It was fun while it lasted.

Brooms tomorrow.
