This ain't no way to head into the All-Star Break

I snapped this screenshot of The Cowboy taking a postgame nap and snoring like he was sawing logs - all the while drooling out of the corner of his mouth, with some chick behind him who was going nuts to get on TV. Pretty compelling television, FSN might want to institute some better quality control, or at least Huson should slap Tracy in the back of the head when he slips into a snooze.
What about the game? It sucked.
Hawpe is looking sort of un-All Star-ish lately. Maybe the excitement of being at the Mid-Summer Classic will re-energize him. He frankly looks tired, and has let the team down in the clutch.
I think it might be time to start easing up on the fucking "try to steal a bag every time someone with remote speed gets to 1st". It is in part due to some bad luck, but I have seen so many double plays with a runner in motion over the past couple weeks, pickles, and just flat getting caught stealing.
Hello? Bats? Get hot and opportune anytime now........4 runs over 2 games won't win many games. Sure didn't the past couple.

I wonder if the Cowboy was dreaming about beef jerky or baseball.
