Mood music: Eminence Front by The Who
The big man gets the ball today, and he'll be looking to polish off three or four helpings of Phillies hitters, leaving nothing left at the table for the bullpen. But unfortunately, his Calorie Consumption has led him to a showdown with The Doctor.
The Doctor: After reviewing your tests, I'm going to prescribe a steady diet of sliders and change ups.
CC: Won't that affect my....."performance?"
The Doctor has stolen CCs fastball mojo with his precisely planned maneuvers! Today, CC attempts to get that mojo back.
Yell when you need an overflow thread. And here's a link to The Good Phight.
