The Fireman Strikes Again

I'm going to skip all the serious talk and analysis for tomorrow and instead just play out my man crush on D-Rob in a public literary forum again.

Seriously, are you kidding me???  The dude comes in with 2 on, puts another runner on to load the bases, then proceeds to strike out the side in the 8th like it ain't no thang.  He's a fucking monster.  He can't be stopped.  The guy loves pressure.  He thrives on it.  In all honesty, Rafael Soriano should probably just opt out if he ever wants to pitch real man innings ever again because D-Rob is THAT good.

In 45 times he's faced a batter when the bases have been loaded in his career, D-Rob has 23 Ks.  That's beyond dirty.  That's just otherworld filth.
