Now this is what Joe calls pitching. Hellboy was simply magnificent today.
Three hits allowed in his first start of the season? Wow!
One pitch away from a complete game, it seemed Hellboy grew stronger as the game wore on. His seventh and eighth innings were strong, especially for a guy making his first start of the season, especially for a guy who was probably past his pitch count.
Joe was so happy for Hellboy, he dropped his broom!
Ah, a sweep over the Yankmees to start the 2012 campaign. How sweet is that? Joe’s going to have a hard time getting up in the morning after countless adult beverages in celebration.
Just about the only thing that went wrong with this series sweep were the two douchebags who robbed the Rays of homers, in particular, the idiot who was wearing a Rays cap and a Yankmees jersey Saturday. MAKE UP YOUR MIND!
(Dudes over the age of 15 who bring gloves to ballgames need to grow up.)
Right now, the Rays might want to consider building a basket along the outfield walls where the bleachers are, much like what Wrigley Field has, thereby preventing anyone from turning a Rays homer into a double. Thankfully, the Rays were not burned by those two mental morons.
Anyway, great, great series. Cheers!
