Tipsy McLeatherpants' Good-Time Drinking and Eating Emporium

Woohoo! Three-game winning streak!



As is often the case with other things in life, I'm a very lazy man when it comes to blogging. So this will be a quick hitter.

Ryan Church

He should have never been sent to AAA to begin with, but the manner in which he was brought back up makes no sense. Neither he nor Watson was playing well a week and a half into the season. Each should have been given more time. But when Watson wins the job on a small sample size, perhaps it's fitting he loses it on a small sample size.

After four games and 14 at bats, Church has three homers, a double, eight RBIs and 14 total bases. Haters might call that a small sample size as well, but I think we can all agree on this: Brandon Watson wouldn't have come close to accomplishing that impressive four-game streak, maybe ever. It's good to have our sacred cow back. Even thought I'm sure Tipsy McLeatherpants will take all the credit.

Jim Bowden

Fire him. And not because of the DUI. Fire him because he's a self-important huckster who cares nothing about the team's long-term health except to the degree it helps him keep his job.

Drunk-driving is not funny. But the obvious snarky jokes ("Well, this explains the Soriano trade," etc) are hilarious.

The Punisher has a good recap.

Ownership

There's no excuse to wait any longer, now the Kasten and Lerner have joined forces. It's been blogged to death, but MLB and the National Disgrace have done damage to this franchise by not naming an owner sooner.

Everyone associated with the management of the franchise, from Tony Tavares to Bowden to the ticket office are doing half-assed jobs knowing that they might be fired the minute new ownership takes control. It was tolerable during the honeymoon period of the Inaugural Season, but now it is damaging the franchise and the fans are the ones that suffer.

You're right. That is kinda funny.

Thusly, I have changed the post title.

Not surprisingly the staff of Tipsy's (that's what me and the bros like to call it) is made up of nothing but toolsy outfielders. 5-tool waiter. My waiter says they are expecting a new trainee named Alex next week!
