..but I’m going to post a picture of you looking like a goof on my blog. How’s it feel now, Chris Denorfia? Yeah, that’s right. Not so funny, is it? As a side note – I got terrible marks in gym class because there was always a sportsmanship component. You may have noticed – I’m not a good loser.
On a more serious note though – it was a great game by Italy, and not a great one from Canada. Its all well and good to have an entire bullpen full of relievers ready to go for this game – but what they really needed was one guy who could go four innings and not leak runs. maybe Scott Richmond was that guy. We’ll never know. Jesse Crain showed that a legitimate MLB-calibre arm could nullify the Italian bats pretty quickly, so its a shame that Richmond never got a chance to show his stuff.
