Can't Get No Relief (Again?)

Another Saturday finds Bill and several of his team at work, trying to appease the taskmaster boss Scrivener and reconcile yesterday afternoon's loss to Toronto …

Bill:
Why re-call a reliever who is a 1-inning guy? I don't think sending Malaska back out for 1-2 more batters would be risky

 

Mike:
That may be the role that best suits Malaska but he has been a starter in the past. While he isn't stretched out, i don't see him going a second inning to be Heartbreak Hill.

 

Bill:
I hate making excuses, but this team at 100% strength is perfect, but right now we are flawed …though I have to say it's ridiculously early, but certain common mistakes worry me.

 

Mike:
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength."

 

Bill:
OK, wise one, back to your Hiding Place. [Laughs] Scrivener's going to pop in around 10am on his way to tee time to see where we're at on the Papa Gino's RFP.

 

Author's Notes:
Bill's first speech is attributed to "PaulM" from screen 5 of the thread Second Guesser's Club - Toronto @ Boston at SoSH, while Mike's response is attributed to "HomeRunBaker" on the same screen. Mike's ending quote is from The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.
