Well, yesterday was certainly an interesting day. Scout did a nice job summarizing the finer points of yesterday’s Blue Jays-Rangers game: “I went to a boxing match and baseball game broke out.” Fisticuffsmanship! While no one ever wants to see anyone get hurt, I, for one, love a good baseball rivalry, and we have ourselves a genuine no holds barred “I Hate You” rivalry, the likes we haven’t seen in a long time. I don’t know who was right or wrong, but upon further review, that slide into second was really, really hard into Odor and Odor kind of spoke for many when he gave Bautista that punch to the face. Yes, I loved the bat flip… but the curse words I have unleashed towards the Permanent Resting Bitch Faced Right Fielder would make a sailor blush. I have a feeling people will be talking about this one for awhile. Oh, the score? The Rangers won 7-6. Eight of them got ejected, and two Blue Jays. That’s part of the score too.
Here is what two assholes had to say about it. Sorry, anytime you use the phrase “play baseball the right way”, you sir, are an asshole. Congrats. Also, the team with an “apparent lack of leadership” is doing a whole lot better in the standings (22-16) than your team (19-20)… so about that? Not so much. And we all know why Gibbons is an ass.
I’ll tell you how I really feel about it later. I’m not awake yet and I am fairly certain I have a fever.
A’s 7-Rays 6. Really tough loss in St. Pete, one of those heart breakers. This is one of those games you don’t forget. The Rays had a 5-1 lead late in the game and they squandered it. The probability of winning was quite high–I took lots of math and did well. I understand probability. Apparently, no one explained probability to Danny Valencia, who hit an improbable 3 HRs yesterday. I actually laughed out loud when he hit the 3rd one. I couldn’t believe it. I hope the sewer pipes burst in O.co and his jock itches today. Prick. 🙂
I see the news gets even worse. The Yankees and Red Sox won–their fans happy make me really grumpy (except for you slappy). The Orioles (my choice to take the AL East in lieu of my Rays–I know Angelos’ niece and she is wonderful), Mets, and Cubs lost. Cardinals won. That all sucks. Yesterday really did suck! More Smiths!
Marlins 5-Nationals 1. This one sucks too. Some guy in Virginia seems like a nice person while Loria is a jerk and Old Gator has lost his damned mind. My methods are highly scientific, logical, and reasoned. Just call me Mr. Spock. #freeFernandezandStanton
Angels 3-Mariners 0. Santiago almost pitches a no-no.
Reds 9-Phillies 4. The Reds avoid being swept.
Pirates 2-Cubs 1. As do the Pirates. Classic pitchers duel between Cole and Lester, which Lester flirting with a no-hitter. The bats were afraid.
Giants 2-D’backs 1. Giants sweep, crazy review ends the game.
Twins 5-Cleveland 1. Twins get their first road win.
I have to get ready for work. You can recap your own team below if you are so inclined, or if I missed something. I’m definitely not perfect. Thanks.
