2-1 yesterday, Tanaka let us down against the Jays who he has always dominated. What a marathon that fucking Dbacks game was huh? Runs, runs, runs.

Let’s blame the loss of the straight pick last week on booze for breakfast and disgusting strippers distracting me at my bachelor party. New streak starts today – let’s get it.
