I've made a new resolution. I know its not new years but meh. Last year I had to make a very similar resolution. This relates to decisions from the bench boss. Look, I know we aren't the only team in the majors that question their manager as I have seen similar arguments from almost every SBNation site. Being the manager is one of those thankless jobs where every wrong decision gets agonized over while every right decision is passed over as common knowledge. So let it be known that from this point going forward I am going to make an extreme effort to not question all of Farrell's decision. I think I'll be happier this way.

So lets move onto todays pitching and lineups shall we? Wait a minute... Whats this? Jose Molina is batting DH? Seriously? What the hell!... Right deep breathes.... Its all going to be ok I don't need to get a drink ready... I can deal with this... 1....2....3....4.....AWGSDHGHGHSAARGHH! COME ON FARRELL ITS JOSE FRIGGIN MOLINA! What? does he have a great career average in his 21 freakin at bats against BURHRLE? What are you doing! Are you purposely trying to piss people off? Because we are giving J.P. more games we have to find ways to get his "Epic" bat into the lineup?

Deep Breathe.... well that lasted long.
