We Shoulda Lit Up Darvish

Recommended Posts

Been there. Have family that lives in Irving. They will even tell you it's not a baseball town. They love their football. And you look at the way their loser fans acted this weekends? Enough said.


I thought you were questioning my second remark.  I just don't see Anaheim as much of a baseball town ... therefore, almost any other place ranks above it. 


In the other thread about an opening day sellout, I commented how so many people in Orange County are totally clueless about baseball.  Some think Tim Salmon is still on the team.  Some have no idea how the playoffs work and they think winning the AL West or advancing to the ALCS is as worthy as winning the World Series.  And lots of people have no clue who Albert Pujols or Josh Hamilton are. 


Anaheim/Orange County has too much competition:  Dodgers, Ducks, Lakers, Clippers, Disneyland, Knotts, the beach, etc.

I really thought some fans were past the stage of just using ERA without any context. I guess not. 


Some context? Like the 3.92 road ERA (a pretty good way of debunking the whole "he'd be awesome if he didn't pitch in Texas" argument)? That fantastic 4.2 BB/9? I really thought baseball was past the point where you needed to go to great lengths to prove a pitcher like Darvish isn't 'really good'. I guess not.
