RHM has been up and down a lot the last few days as Dreamhost tries to get their act together. At least it's better than my last host, which went down for brief, scheduled maintenance…last November.
I kinda doubt that it's MY big fat 200 hits a day bringing down my hosts, but I can't ignore the fact that the problem seems to follow me. Maybe I've got a bad vibe. Maybe it's time to forgive Bronson Arroyo.
In any event, all this down time makes it difficult for me to get anything written. As soon as I sit down to make fun of the Cardinals for having their asses handed to them, Cubs-style, by the Braves, I find that RHM won't load. Then I get distracted doing something else, like chipping all the paint off my toenails, and before I know it, the evening is gone and I haven't even noticed that my site is back up.
Long story short, my toenails are naked and it's bedtime, but I wanted to get down a few bullet points tonight, if only to celebrate the fact that I can:
- Did Edwin Encarnación get hurt when I wasn't looking? Or is his being benched for playing well in addition to errors these days?
- Eric Milton always looks so sad. Even when he's doing well, those big doe eyes always look on the verge of tears. I think we should start calling him Eeyore.
- Speaking of Milton, I am so glad that we sacrificed Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez so that Milton could give up a grand slam tonight. In the seventh inning. With a pitch count over 100. It's moments like that that really bring the Reds community together. In this case, in a collective scream of “Why is he still pitching??”
