Breaks Your Heart

“It [baseball] breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.”/blockquote>

The largest crowd I have seen at Oakland watched the first home game of the season. Optimism bled away as the A’s most consistent pitcher last year struggled, and gave up four runs on a single inning. A 7-3 defeat, with just one bright spot.

The newly acquired Cuban emigre, Cesepedes, drove a monster two run homer and made a stunning throw from centre field to home plate.
