Willy T. v. Wandy: What do I do?!
Wandy pitched well today. He struck out 7 and gave up only 2 earned runs, both solo shots, in a 70 pitch, 4 inning effort. The Astros beat the Nationals 11-2.
One of the home runs belonged to my man, Willy T.
See, it’s situations like this that make me cringe. As an Astros fan who latches on to certain players and never lets go, I had a crisis today.
Willy is 1 for 12 off Wandy in regular season play… but what if he’s got his number now?! What will I do?!
Of course, yes, it depends on the situation:
Are we in the playoff chase? Oh wait, we’re the disAstros… Are we one game out of the cellar?
Are there runners on base? Or, OK, is there one runner on base?
Are we ahead by 10 runs? Oh, wait, sorry, Spring Training scores have me all out of whack… Are we ahead by 3 runs?
And how is Wandy feeling? Is JJO misquoting him in the media again? Is little Walinda sick? Oh wait, JJO isn’t around, and we still don’t get decent Wandy coverage!!!
People, I am an Astros fan, first and… first. So, you know, the important factors, I’ll take them into consideration. I’ll add them all up and divide and quantify before I make the decision to I tearfully root for…
Willy T.? or Wandy?
