31 August 2009

The total is now 6....

complete games for OMG Zack Greinke...Sunday, the boy was en fuego giving up only one hit... Greinke gets to boast with three shutouts and six complete games now, his 2.32 ERA is best in the American League...last night he walked one and struck out five in the best low-hit game of his career. Can we say 2009 Cy Young? I thought I wanted to talk 'bout Gordon...yeah I don't. If you could see me you'd see me shaking my head.

On the flip, season is almost over. We might end it at .400. Maybe. Can we get a break? At least we had Greinke to bring some brightness to the season. I think there is some saying about rebuilding and this and that and next year.....there are 32 games before I want to hear that shit.

BIG to address Todd Haley. And maybe his sanity. I don't even remember what I wrote last about the Chiefs. I am fairly sure it was before any of this preseason debacle stuff....

So first....Chan Gailey, OUT. Todd Haley filling his spot. People are acting shocked and appalled. Cause and effect. He was retained not someone Haley brought in. His playbook was written in blue crayola on a Big Chief tablet people...We have able arms (2 exactly, and I ain't talking about that dickweed Croyle) and people who can catch the preseason we score 2 offensive TD's in three games....and then our line lets the "big investment" go down.....pretty easy to see why he was let go. But here comes that sanity part I eluded to previously. You, sir are a first year coach, who has already been questioned (at least method wise) by the media...there is a huge weight on you to improve this team, and letting O cord go with no backup saying you will fill the position as well as you know...those head coach duties is maybe a little big in the britches. Shit, what do I know....I soon might be wearing a SuperHaley shirt and eating my words. I hope so.

Worried about Flowers....have not heard extent of his shoulder because the Cassel knee is overshadowing...but I must say I am more than pleased with our defensive play....everyone talking about how worried we were to change up the scheme, but it seems everyone is kinda fitting in and I am damn excited about Jackson. At least our D can score....

And now the part that makes me all woohooo....we have the components, and honestly what I think is a good start. The best part though....our division. After looking at Denver and the Raiders, well I could see us getting a few wins, and maybe just maybe making the playoffs. I know you think it is crazy talk....but I think I am on to something here.

Lupe over and out.
