Yankees Off, Not Me

The Yankees may have had a day off due to a rain out in New York, but the author of this blog, me, had a softball game today.
I had a good start until the third inning when I started to play like shit.
In my first at bat I managed to blast an RBI double only to be stranded on the base and made a nice play at the plate.
But things went downhill as the game went on.
It was a routine bunt attempt that I fielded cleanly, but the throw went high enabling the batter to stretch a single into a triple. Another fielding blunder was a simple pop up. I centered myself on the ball, had my glove ready, but the spin on the ball sent it flying backward into foul territory. I knew something bad was going to happen; you never give away free outs. The batter wound up slugging a triple on the next pitch. So instead of two outs, hey had a one out rally.
My last two at bats were nothing but horrible. I struck out my second time swinging at a ball to high and in my final at bat, blooped a pop up to the worst fielder who caught it. I was running down the base line cursing at the top of my lungs. Some of my teammates didn't like that, fuck them, I may not be the bes tplayer out there, but I have passion and if things don't go my way, I will curse, throw, beat, and toss things. You could say that I have the mentality of Paul O'Neill. Instead of a water cooler to shash, I had no choice but to punch the fence.
So there you have it, A bad fielding day and a horrible batting day. Normally I don't mind going 1-3, but those two outs were stupid outs that never should have happened.
I don't want to be a hero, I want to help out in a win, and if we lose, I want to make sure I'm not at fault for it.
We wound up winning, but it took our last at bats to do so.
