Kawakami, while not rock solid, was solid, and he will probably get another L. This team just puts on their Suck Fest act when he pitches. It’s not his fault, but these uys don’t seem driven to play hard behind him.
I noticed Freddie flubbed the reverse split putting Pinto (you meant Pinto, right?) in to face Heyward. Not a smooth move for our future (hope, hope, hope) manager.
I watched Miller’s Crossing just this week. Wally Mart shucking them for five dolla. My first time seeing it on a nice t.v., didn’t know how beautiful the cinematography was. John Turturo = amazing in that movie. His finest hour, to me.
“Look into your heart, Tom. I’m praying to you. Look into your heart.” Gives me chills just typing it.
And Leo tommy gunning the guy upstairs after jumping out the window is one of the most satisfying pieces of violence in film. I think the score is underrated, too.
And it’s grim, true enough, but I don’t get that scuzzy feeling like nobody’s worth a crap. Leo and Tom’s loyalty to each other is genuinely nice, even the bust up at the end doesn’t really hurt that. “I said we were through, it’s not the same thing.”
