City of Joyful Dread

I caught a fever, a holy fire

Tawny Kitaen

you took me in when I was out of luck
you went down on me & I was starstruck
you took me to bed, I was a wrecking ball
you woke me up & I walked the walls

& when I’m on the mound the world can end
my troubles fade away
the devil in my wedding bed
& the angel in LA

you ordered the sarang burung
& then you blew my mind
“remember where our love went wrong
your Hollywood playboy lying”

& when I’m on the mound the world can end
my troubles fade away
the devil in my wedding bed
& the angel in LA

when you told me to I drove you home
because you were no one’s slave
you dug your heel into my bone
& then you dug my grave

& when I’m on the mound the world can end
my troubles fade away
the devil in my wedding bed
& the angel in LA

now I’m in Cleveland & you’re out west
wild nights of endless summer
B movies, rehab, the beast with three backs
sounds like an endless bummer

Per The Hardball Times:

Citing the clubhouse as a hotbed of negativity, Snell took his 2-8, 5.36 ERA down to Triple-A Indianapolis where he chalked up a 0.96 ERA in six innings.

On a related note, Roy Halladay’s 2009 AL All-Star ERA is 9.00 in two innings. Maybe the Mariners can now trade Snell for Halladay?

p.s. How does one chalk up a 0.96 ERA in six innings? Was .36 of the run unearned?
