If Fister has another good game tonight, I don't know how I'm going to respond. What are you supposed to do when your favorite team pulls a quality starter out of thin air? I mean, who the hell had Fister on their radar a year ago? In April? In July? I'm trying so hard not to build myself up, because I don't want to end up disappointed by a guy in whom I didn't really believe as recently as last month, but it's beyond silly how well Fister has adjusted to the bigs, and I'm running out of reasons for doubt. Things like this aren't supposed to happen. But through four starts and five appearances, it's been happening.

Go get 'em, Doug, you inexplicable son of a bitch.
