Jason Grimsley: Kiss My Ass!!!

Last night I was channel surfing, and the movie "Moneyball" came on. Part of the story is, the Oakland A's -a franchise I despise almost as much as the Yankees- is working on an American League record winning streak. Of all teams, they can set the record (20 straight wins) against (who else?) but the Kansas City Royals. This was in 2002. I found the line score and official game record on espn here:

http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=220904111

Anyway, here's my beef with Oakland. They were Charlie Finley's bitch back in 1968, nabbing KC's baseball team right before they got good. Right after they moved to Oakland, they started winning, and had a dynasty in the early 1970s. They were the team that was in the Royals way to success in the early years. They pissed on us until we finally blew past them around 1976.

Anyway, it would have been so sweet to pay them back for their good fortune at our expense. The Royals have been so useless for so long, all they had to do was beat them in this ONE GAME to get historic payback. Instead, Paul Byrd goes out and gets hammered. Royals go down 11-0 by the third inning. Pathetic, but they do mount a furious comeback. Sweeney hits a 3-run homer to draw them within one in the 8th, Royals tie it in top of the ninth, 11-11, then JASON FREAKING GRIMSLEY gives up a dinger to LOSE in the bottom of the ninth. A walk off homer, A's fans go nuts, KC is still Oakland's bitch.

Goddamn it, that movie made me mad, making me re-live that again.

The uniforms in the movie were cool, anyway. They were pretty accurate. Saw actors playing Ibanez, Sweeney, Randa, Kit Pellow, and JASON FREAKING GRIMSLEY. GOD....I HATE that guy.



That is all.
When's spring training start???
