LIMERICK 13/162: THE VOICE OF NEGATIVE REASON PLEADS FOR CALM


It's an old adage that if you expect the worst, you can only be surprised and pleased by good news.  And I suppose that's the attitude I've brought to this season, but the thing is, despite the average-ish play we've seen so far, there has been actual good news.  Kemp is amazing.  Kershaw is amazing.  From nearly every player, we have seen flashes of the talent that made them Major Leaguers.  Most importantly, the games have been fun to watch, and that is all you can ask of this or any ballclub.

So yeah, I'm a pessimist, but I think that even though I'm expecting mediocre results from the team, that's no reason to set the game threads on fire.  Think that's hypocritical of me?  Maybe:

I’m a downer, but still, let’s relax.
The games have been fun – them’s the facts.
Yeah, I’m in fine fettle.
(You pots, meet the kettle.)
Want anguish? Just peek at your tax.
