I Went Out For Dinner Instead

I didn’t even hesitate when I made the date to have dinner with a friend instead of staying home to watch the Yankees. Cafe Luna is a cute little place in the nearby town of Summerland, and it has a lot of charm – something this team doesn’t have at the moment. When I got home and read about their second loss in a row to the lowly White Sox, I felt sad. They’re sinking fast and there doesn’t seem to be any way to stop the drowning.

Again, the pitching was good enough and Kuroda always deserves more runs than he gets. But this team just doesn’t score unless the planets are perfectly aligned or something. Cashman can say he’s looking around for upgrades, but it would take a kid like Puig to turn things around.

As for me, I had a lovely time sipping wine and scarfing down grilled chicken with tomatoes and garlic. Yum.

    That’s funny because it was televised for me and I chose to go to dinner with friends as well.
    Had a lovely time too.
    Maybe this is just freeing up my time this fall.
    I just wish those in 1st place were just a few games behind us if we can’t be in 1st.

    I stayed and watched the whole game…I don’t know why, but I thought they were going to come back at the end. They should have, considering how much Kuroda has meant to them this season. Sale started off badly and I thought we were going to knock him off the mound, but it didn’t happen. His delivery with no one on base is really wild…I don’t know how he finds the strike zone at all. Its terrible to lose 2 in a row to this team…didn’t they lose 10 in a row before we came to town?! Anyway, let’s hope and believe they can still turn it around. I’m not saying that they will still make it to the playoffs, although that’s not impossible yet; I just want them to come to the end of the season on a positive note. GO YANKEES!!!

    It’s definitely freeing up time, Peg, although I’m regretting all the garlic this morning. Ach. Heartburn city.

    Agree, Diane. It’s especially irritating to lose to teams we should beat, but that’s this season in a nutshell. The guys are trying but…..Well, we can always hope they’ll go on a tear. If not, I’m with Peg – I just don’t want them to finish last.
