Javier peeled the lid off his paper cup and scanned the faces gathered around Juan’s coffee cart this morning.
“Did someone die?” he asked.
“No,” Jon said. “We’re just talking about the game.”
“It wasn’t very good,” Javier shrugged. “Too many walks and two home runs and we go home a loser. It’s too bad they couldn’t wrap it up last night, but it’s not the end of the world.”
“We know it’s not the end of the world,” Jon snapped. “They just need to finish this and get ready for the playoffs.”
“They’ll finish it,” Javier smiled. “Buy cigars for tonight.”
