If You Don't Expect Too Much From Me, You Might Not Be Let Down

The first time Dwight Gooden let me down I was 8 years old. He missed the 1986 World Series victory parade and subsequently got suspended for the first two months of the 1987 season.
30 years later, he's still a disappointment.

I signed Chase up for a pitching clinic with Dwight Gooden. It was supposed to be one hour of instruction, and one hour of meet and greet.

Gooden never showed up. We got a refund and since we were there anyway, their instructors worked with the kids, so Chase got some free pitching lessons.

And he also got a life lesson, if you don't expect too much from people, you might not be let down.

Big Bart's Belly

Bartolo Colon left his start against the Blue Jays after five innings with a stomach ailment.
“It’s been kind of a head cold, headache-type thing and today my stomach was really ill as well,” Colon said through an interpreter. “We’re not really sure what’s going on.”
