Charlotte Knights pound Durham Bulls again: Hard Times

Posted by on Sat, Aug 27, 2011 at 6:00 AM

DBAP/ DURHAM—During his post-game interview last night, after Charlotte clobbered the Bulls again, 10-4, Knights manager Joe McEwing said: "One thing I won't ever forget is how hard this game is."

He said that last time I interviewed him, too, way back on April 20, in virtually the exact same words: "One thing I'll never forget is how hard this game is."

I ran with that in April, and even though it's clearly the line McEwing feeds the media, I'm running with it again four months later. That's partly because I got home from the ballgame, cranked up Twitter, and was confronted with this tweet from the great Neko Case:

Music is too hard. Other people make it look so F-ing easy.

McEwing and Case affirmed what I'd been thinking while I watched the Bulls lose their fourth straight game: Right now, everything about the game of baseball looks really hard for them, and they compound the difficulty by making it harder on themselves.

Coverage of the Bulls has moved to the new Bull City Summer pilot site, but I haven't wanted to leave Triangle Offense high and dry. Come along to the new site, though, and keep reading this story—and many more, including Sam Stephenson's interview with DBAP groundskeeper Scott Strickland, there:
