So Adam Greenberg got his at-bat, striking out on three R.A. Dickey knuckleballs Tuesday night.
- The fact that he got another at-bat, great. I was actually very happy for the guy.
- The fact that the whole Greenberg campaign started with a Cubs fan, corny. Cubs fans are just freakin’ lame. As a Cubs fan friend of mine says, “You can literally make Cub fans do anything”.
- The fact that it was some contrived at-bat by the Marlins owner, also lame. At least give the kid a full game. It’s the freakin’ Marlins, they suck, and they ended his career in the first place. Let him play a game.
So now Greenberg has two at-bats. In the first one, he gets the back of his skull removed. In the second, he goes down on three straight knuckleballs, to the probable Cy Young winner. Could his career get any worse? Let’s give him one more at-bat so he can ground into a double play and pull his hamstring while running it out.
Like I said, I’m happy for him, I’m sure he busted his ass in the years sinc...
