Hey, there's always a bright side, even to a rough outing by Aaron Harang. Finally, the beat reporters can stop trying to come up with different ways to say “boy, this bullpen stinks.”
Though, now that I think about it, the bullpen hasn't had a chance to outstink Harang yet. It could still be more of the same.
On an unrelated note, who hates the idea of a Big 10 network besides me? I'm not a Big 10 fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I'll tune in to see a Purdue game on Saturdays. I've got a sinking feeling my casual college football following is soon to be at an end.
And while we're talking about ideas we hate, who was it who was talking about the length of Mike Stanton's contract? Ah, here it is, thank you John Fay. Stanton's entitled to $3 million next year, plus an option for 2009 with a $500,000 buyout. Ugh.
Woo, Adam Dunn just hit a 2-run homer. Do we really want to let this guy go free agent after this season just so Krivsky can lock up eight more Stanton's for the next three years?
