There's Only 10 More Games To Tip Dylan Hernandez Over The Edge

From Dylan Hernandez' tweets tonight:

Post-game meetings with Torre are becoming painful. #Dodgers

Today, a TV reporter began his question by saying, "You guys struggled offensively the last two nights..." THE LAST TWO NIGHTS??? 39 minutes ago via web

A local newspaper reporter later asked, "Is there any sense of what will wake up the offense?" THEY'RE OUT OF THE RACE. WHO GIVES A ...??? 38 minutes ago via web

To Torre's credit, he continues to answer every question seriously. 38 minutes ago via web

I have not yet gone to a post-game meeting, but seeing Hernandez precariously perched on the edge of sanity may be the thing to get me there just for kicks. I can ask questions like "If you end up managing the Mets next year after all, would you make a move to try and get Garret Anderson again?" and "How's the team morale in the clubhouse these days, Joe?", just to watch Hernandez's head explode. Poor guy.

Dylan and I were both at Torre's post-game session yesterday when a reporter asked Joe if he had any comment on the Mets situation (keep in mind this was after Joe had spent 20+ minutes during pre-game discussing this topic which clearly irritated him). Protocol states that you keep your questions focused on the game itself during post-game media sessions. Apparently no one told the reporter. I thought I saw red in Joe's eyes, and he's one of the nicest guy I've ever met.

I feel for Dylan and Torre.

EK must've gone overboard on the "End of the PCS season" champagne.
