GIF: Tillman Curve Reaffirms Life Choices by Eno Sarris April 12, 2013 Every so often, I hit a moment where I wonder if it was such a great idea to turn something I love so much into my work. There are minutae associated with work that can drag the topic down into the doldrums. Living bare to the world on a daily basis can be exhausting. Turning on a game because you have to is a strange feeling. Similarly (maybe), Chris Tillman may have had times where he wondered if it was going to work, and if it was all a good idea to begin with. But then he might have had one of those reaffirming moments on his second pitch to Dustin Pedroia in the fifth inning yesterday. Not a big deal, just a yakker for a strike, but it was a beauty. And watching it spin by, over and over again in my Photoshop, I felt like yeah, yeah, this is fun. Phew.
