Stark Raving Chad. The LA fans went nutso over Billingsley's masterpiece of mediocrity.
LOS ANGELES (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Chad Billingsley dazzled a star-studded Los Angeles crowd last night as he scattered seven hits over six innings, allowing four earned runs and absorbing the loss in an 11-3 spanking by the Milwaukee Brewers. All told, the Dodgers staff allowed thirteen hits, in a game that never seemed in doubt for the Brewers.
“This is the kind of remarkably average to poor pitching we’ve come to expect from our staff this year,” said Dodgers Pitching Coach Rick Honeycutt. “His (Billingsley) mechanics were spotty at best. After the first inning was over, I turned to Joe (Torre) and said ‘I am consistently awed by the level of mediocrity and resignation these fellas exhibit on a nightly basis.’”
Director Quentin Tarantino called Billingsley’s performance “an exquisite display of a protagonist enduring the anguish of a world rapidly closing in on him and not having the balls to do a thing about it. His restraint was epic.”
Tarantino continued to pontificate throughout the game much to the chagrin of his fellow fans as he sat in the second row behind home plate. (more…)
