April is the cruellest month.

Always difficult to refrain from quoting from masterpieces of long-form poetry when blogging about the Rockies, so today I've culled from T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land.

"April is the cruellest month", I don't think the great scribe, Tulo, could have said it any better. It sure has been a rough one. Fairly effectively washing away any residual joy of late '07 which may have been lingering. The team appears to be a mess. Not sure if they are going to be able to turn things around...they sure as hell don't look like they will.

Hopefully May treats the hometown 9 a little bit kinder.

TULO OUT UNTIL ALL-STAR BREAK!?!?!

Getting crueller, and just basically more fucked up. Time for Barmes to shine.

I guess Tulo really took that 12-hole spot suggestion to heart.

Bad news, but it's hard to deny that Tulo was really sucking bad in April. Maybe this will be a good thing. Good thing Jamey Carroll can step in and play second....

I'll be at Coors Friday (weather permitting) and Sunday. They better bring a new attitude to the park come this weekend. No excuses, gentlemen.

ST - the Denver Post sports page poached your headline in today's edition. They must be reading BSB.

WHAT?!?!?

Kinda figured it wasn't that original in the baseball context...but did they have a head shot of Eliot????

TroutDog said...

No Eliot head. It was the tag line on the top of page 1 of the sports page leading to an article later in the section. It featured a picture of Morales rubbing his head.

Sonic Tooth said...

Morales does love to rub his head. (when things start getting dicey, which is everytime he pitches)

one month later things have only gotten worse. ain't nobody reading this...but figured it was worth commenting a month later.
