Steady as she goes, Ken
Thank fucking God we've got Ken's steady hand leading our ship (that's our ship up above...the one sinking). I would hate to think what might happen if we had a Cap'n who perhaps thought about pinch running for Frank Thomas in the 8th inning of a game we trailed by 6 runs. I don't even want to know. Luckily, we've got Ken to make sure he runs the bases in a game hopelessly out of hand. And who could have ever predicted that leaving him in a game that had been long since decided could only have detrimental results, like oh, say, Frank pulling a quadriceps?
So the Macha count continues. So far this season he has cost us four games, Frank Thomas, and maybe Huston Street. And his lineups remain a confusing mystery to all but the criminally insane. That's some pretty impressive work by old Kenny. Pretty impressive indeed.
Steady as she goes, captain. Steady as she goes.
