I guess we're supposed to root for the Orioles...

We root for a precision strike by a tiny meteorite.

TheWinWarblist said...

I'd take an extravagant strike by a quite large chunk of rock.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

As long as it doesn't take out my Bucky Dent brick.

Gallo wakes up when it doesn't matter anymore. Great.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

It's so he'll get that 7 year extension over the winter.

TheWinWarblist said...

Rufus? That doesn't say Bucky Dent.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucky_Dent

Name at birth Russell Earl O'Dey

Knew they wouldn't allow Bucky Dent, so we went with Russ O'Dey.

I have a duplicate signed by Bucky Dent and Mike Torrez. Steiner made a profit from it.

DickAllen said...

I’ll say one thing for Gallo. He may be a useless turd, but when he gets hold of one (which is rare and worthless at the same time) he certainly hits the snot out of it.

DickAllen said...


I think Rizzo might be worth keeping around. He may be past his sell date, but he’s quite a glove.

DickAllen said...

And a full season staring at that short pitch might even extend his career. This is, after all, the place where has-been a go to retire.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

1. Where the fuck is Velazquez?
2. I'm annoyed with Voit's bitching, but has he been Refsnydered?
3. The vaunted Yankees offense sucks. Kudos to ZachA for pointing the ineptitude. Two HRs, but only 2 runs. Like the Carmines in the early 70s.
4. Fuck you HAL
5. Fuck you brainless
6. Fuck you bonehead.
7. Rizzo isn't on the downside enough to be re-signed. He needs to have a crap year elsewhere first, then brainless will want him back.

And Now: The Scions of Scunnery, Our 2021 Bullpen.

Russell Earl O'Dey??? The fuck you say??

TheWinWarblist said...

Wiki: "Born in Savannah, Georgia, to Denise O'Dey and Russell "Shorty" Stanford,[3] Dent went home from the hospital with his mother's brother James Earl Dent, and James' wife, Sarah. Bucky and his half-brother were raised by the Dents, who changed his last name to "Dent", but his mother would not allow them to legally adopt. He and his half-brother were led to believe the Dents were their biological parents, until he was ten years old.[4] Dent was told the woman he knew as his aunt was in fact his mother.[3] Later in life, he was told the name of his father, whom he then found, thus sparking and developing a relationship."

We all come from blended families; that is true.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

And Bucky Dent has a brick at Phen Weigh Pahk. Forever.

Fuck the carmines.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

And I've been to the mini-Phen Weigh in Delray Beach. Dent is at bat on the (permanent) scoreboard.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

If they can score 5 more, they may have a chance to win.

TheWinWarblist said...

Gardy Party!! Lets see those fuckers blow this one!!


Wait!! No!! I take it back!! I take it back!! LET'S NOT SEE THAT!! LET'S NOT!!

TheWinWarblist said...

Dammit. What have I done?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Somebody lock El Chapo in the trainers room for a couple of hours.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Big Head was talking about Gardner coming back next year.

Kinda like talking about the parolee taking your daughter to the prom.

ranger_lp said...

King has had a solid outing...

JM said...

Chapman might be able to close this one out. Maybe.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Stanton is unable to hit into a DP this AB.

ranger_lp said...

Joey again!!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Keep Chapo locked in the trainer's room.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Joe Pesci is getting to be almost likeable.

ZacharyA said...

Joey has 6 HR in his last 6 starts

Rufus T. Firefly said...

A couple more runs and it may be safe to let El Chapo out of the trainer's room.

Leinstery said...

I believe that all 6 HR have been solo shots, but hey that's still more than Gley Igawa.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Gley Igawa.

Nicely played, sir!

TheWinWarblist said...

Gley Igawa. [slowly nods approvingly]

Kevin said...

Gardy 119 wRC+ second half, it just might happen....

JM said...

It's der Luger.

JM said...

Und das ist alle sie schreiben.

JM said...

Ok, hat geschreibt. So sue me.

ZacharyA said...

Quality start by Kluber, three perfect innings from the bullpen, and 8 runs by the lineup. Wow.

That’s the best all-around game they’ve played in a while. Nice to have a temporary reprieve from the shitty normal play.

Leinstery said...

Thank you. I was thinking back fondly on the AAA legend and wins leader when my hatred for Gleyber crossed into my mind. I think he should be handed the same fate and banished to the minors.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

JM has drifted into German.

Gallo has 37 HR and 75 RBI. No wonder he doesn't like hitting high in the order.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Leinstery,

I think we should run with it until it sticks.

Leinstery said...

I'll spread it everywhere I can the next time he makes a massive mistake, which should be tomorrow.

Anonymous Bosch said...

JM: Ist das wirklich alles, was sie geschrieben hat? Ich dachte, die dicke Dame hat gesungen.

Kevin said...

Too bad that one of my favorite players, Tanaka-San was too rich for Hal. The whole dynamic of the pitching staff changes, possibly extending to the hitters. Well at least our expensive centerfielder is sharpening his golf game. God only knows how many of my teeth have cracked roots because of Hal.

Teams that hit only homers are teams that go home in October.

Love it, bitty.
