Ben Zobrist, a true son of a preacher man, delivered four RBIs and hit a homer last night for the Cubs in their 5-2 victory over the Nationals.
Ben Zobrist, devout Baptist, has been quoted as saying he would be a pastor himself in he were not a baseball player. Although I am likely his carnal opposite and very agnostic bordering on atheist in my spiritual views, I have a great deal of respect for Zobrist. He doesn’t impose his views on anyone. I have observed that there are couple of classes of religious people. Those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk. The “fire and brimstone, hell and damnation” people, and the “God is love” people. Zobrist appears to walk to walk. He seems to come from the God is love camp. A good man who leads by example, described as a missionary for his teammates.
Don’t mess with a missionary man. He’s got God on his side.
I don’t know if he’s Hall of Fame material–likely more like Hall of Very Good, but if was good enough, I’d like to think he’d go in as a Tampa Bay Ray.
Cardinals 4-Phillies 0. Jaime Garcia two-hits the Phils.
Cleveland 9-Tigers 4. Cleveland sweeps the Tigers. They are 6 and 0 on the season vs. Tigers. Napoli smash.
Orioles 1-Yankees 0(10). Classic pitchers duel, Tanaka v. Gausman. Yankees gave in.
Rockies 17!!!!!!-Giants 7. Unspeakable things happened during this game. Human sacrifice, goats. I don’t even know what that means. YES! Story hit his 11th homer, tying some other crazy record. Most homers in a player’s first 27 days when the player is a Scorpio.
Blue Jays 12-Rangers 2. God, I hope I remembered to start Edwin Encarnacion for my fantasy team–he had a double and a 3 run homer. I am the worst.
Marlins 4-D’backs 0. Conley pitched well again. This was the kid who almost threw a no hitter the other night. Marlins sweep.
Reds 9-Brewers 5. Good thing the Reds scored a lot of runs because their bullpen seems hellbent on given them all back. They’re givers.
Red Sox 7-White Sox 3. This game featured 16 walks? What? David Ortiz was honored before his last game at US Cellular. Awwww.
Mariners 6-Astros 3. Fun fact: Cano has 30 runs driven in. Fourteen are courtesy of Astros. He had another big night last.
Padres 5-Mets 3. Colin Rea flirted heavily with a no-hitter. deGrom not his usual self.
Well, I have to get ready for work…
I suppose I should tell you what this bitch is thinking. Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits. It’s hard out here for a bitch. 🙂
