It's quite refreshing to have abandoned any sense of significant investment in the outcome of Diamondbacks games. Something like last night, if I'd still given a damn, would have been a horrific ordeal, that would have wrung ever ounce of adrenalin from my body, and left me tossing and turning half the night. Instead, it was more a case of "Hey, they won - that's nice. Adam Eaton got a couple of hits in his first game, good on the kid. Cool catch by Upton. Time for bed, I think." Apathy, it appears, has its plus points: it's certainly a good deal more relaxing, and after about 250 consecutive games where I genuinely, seriously, deeply cared, it makes for a nice change.

kishi on the recap. There'll be a line-up after the jump. Probably.

  1. Adam Eaton CF
  2. Aaron Hill 2B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  5. Miguel Montero C
  6. Chris Johnson 3B
  7. Gerardo Parra LF
  8. John McDonald SS
  9. Trevor Cahil P

Don't get me wrong: I still want to win. It's just that I've gone through the five stages of baseball grief and so have arrived at Acceptance. Hey, there's always next year. And a month from today, I'll be staring at a winter filled with the NFL, and bemoaning the lack of baseball. So, gather ye enjoyments while ye may.
