"This is too weird, man..."

...as Sammy Davis, Jr., might have said.

At the magical mystery Diet Coke shelf today, I see the name, "Freeman."

Hmm, I thought, the Mets are playing the Braves this afternoon...

Freddie Freeman drives in the only two runs of the game. Tomorrow, I swear, I am going to look at every bottle until I find a "Sanchez" or a "Gary."

I found a Gary bottle On the side of the road. It was empty. Expired in 2017.

D'oh! Stupid expiration date!

Stupid side of the road!

Stupid literary symbolism!

I dare no speak it, but if you could find a case or two of Brians prior to the trade deadline ...

34 pitches in the first inning? Sonny Hughes is back, to no one's surprise.

This game is very silly so far. Although I do like that Suzyn wants to go back to the days before replay where the managers would charge out of the dugout and throw dirt on home plate with every disputed play. Ah, nostalgia for the Golden Age of Baseball.

Blow me, Sonny.

TheWinWarblist said...

He wouldn't even do that right, 13bit. His BlowRA+ is a dismal 47.

Leinstery said...

Great AB by Hicks, only need a few hundred more like it before the thought crosses Coops' mind that he ain't the answer.

13bit said...

That’s a terrible BlowRA+ - even my ex wife’s is higher...

Bad loss—and a team effort. Terrible clutch hitting and of course, Sonny reverts to form.

By my count, the Nationals managed to run into four extra outs in the first three innings—and Sonny still couldn't bring it home.

He went his usual big five innings, or 15 outs, so that means that, in reality, he gave us 3 2/3 innings.

It was game we needed to win, too, coming as it did against the rat's end of the Washington rotation, a kid with nearly a six-run ERA and five lifetime wins.

Also, is it just me, or did it seem like the lineup was drawn from a hat tonight?

Our best power hitter in the No. 2 spot, followed by our .246-hitting shortstop, with the three best average hitters in the lineup at 6, 8, and 9.

Enough already. Have Andujar and Gleyber table-set, and put the big boys in the power slots.

And the true sign of intestinal fortitude: when you can't pitch at home.
