not-so-fond farewell

Mike Parisi is getting on my nerves again. If I were his wife, I'd divorce him. If I were his manager, I'd send him down to AAA (or maybe even AA). 

Kyle Lohse did not pitch his best game yesterday, but we fought back and had the lead four different times before McClellan finally surrendered the winning run on an RBI base hit after a no-out double. 

Today was supposed to be different. Wellemeyer was back, ALBERT was back (in the DH role), and we had a score to settle. 

Well, Todd pitched a gem, Albert had four hits and a walk, and our defense was sharp. Unfortunately, Parisi loaded the bases and walked in the winning run in the bottom of the tenth, and that was all she wrote. 

We lost the game, lost the series, and now head off to Kansas City to face a team that is dominating interleague play (and swept us at home not too terribly long ago).
