Gint-A-Cuffs: Rounds 5-8
July 11th, 2010 by slangon

So apparently nobody in the Mets organization has been paying attention to my well thought-out treatise on why it is so important for them to win games against the Braves. They’ve already lost a disastrous 2 games against them, putting them 5 games behind. Hopefully Johan Santana can work his magic and at least salvage this last game of the first half. Additionally, hopefully today is the day this box shows me some love.

I’m still having a hard time judging how well I’m doing on this box so far. I’m 1/3 of the way through it with 50 points, which at this pace would put me around 150 for the box. Actually, maybe a little higher than that since I also still have my box loader and I’m hoping that the other 2 hits won’t be Yankees. So maybe I’m looking at around 160 for the box. Somehow, that doesn’t seem like enough to win, but I guess you never know.
