The only part of Ararmis Ramirez currently un-injured.
Yes, we lost last night. Yes, we’re back in 4th place, once again looking up at the Reds (boo!). Yes, Aramis Ramirez has been mortally wounded, thus necessitating additional playing time for Aaron Miles. Yes, Ryan Freel is now for some reason on our team. Yes, I have a headache.
I suppose I could sit here and give you all a list of silver linings after yesterday’s debacle, but I won’t. Because Umbra has already done it for me:
A trade! Hooray! Kind of. . . .
There’s nothing I like better than having a trade sprung on us (WHAMO!!!!) out of nowhere. It’s exicting, fraught with possibilities, and breaks up those long days before a night game. That said, I become immediately less exicted upon hearing that the trade involves the Orioles, populated as they are with washed-up, bad-at-baseball, former Cubs.
