So, What Did I Miss? (5/17/16)

Normally, I am not a fan of the blow-out, but the Rays defeating the Blue Jays 13-2 was just what the doctor ordered as the cliche goes, especially after everything that happened on Sunday. The Jays looked flat. I referred to Joey B as the Permanently Resting Bitched Faced Right Fielder yesterday. The only thing that kept going through my  head was this song because I am not a nice person and this is a really good song:

We smacked his whole team up pretty good.

Of course, my team will score no runs tonight in penance, but Monday night was fun and just what I needed to put a smile back on my face.

Ausmus suffered a highly entertaining melt down during which he thought home plate looked cold and needed a sweater. Lou Piniella, he is not, but you can’t expect too much of a Dartmouth frat boy.

I think all the Tigers losing has finally gotten to him. But hey, it worked. His team held on to win, beating the Twins, 10-8.

The Diamondbacks had themselves such a good night, I even bothered to spell out their whole team name. They smacked 15 hits off the Yankees, winning 13-2. Jake Lamb finished a triple shy of a cycle.

Cleveland, I’m not ever going to use your real team name, even though you got 15 runs, and you know why–I don’t care if your sister’s friend’s 1/8 Cherokee brother is cool with it. Maybe he’s an idiot. Anyhow, I digress. Final score Cleveland 15-Reds 5. All Cleveland starters got a hit, very impressive.

Oakland 3-Texas 1. No word yet if the sewer pipes burst in or if Valencia’s jock strap was extra itchy last night. Manaea pitched well, but I didn’t hex him.

Angels 6-Dodgers 5. The Trout-Pujols Show = 5 hits, 5 RBIs.

Pirates 8-Braves 5. Former Ray and all around good guy Matt Joyce (I have spoken of his charitable nature before) got a rare start in Pittsburgh with Marte going off to be a daddy and delivered, going 3 for 4. Awesome.

Miami 5-Phillies 3. I am sure O.G. will have his Jar-jarific recap up soon. I tend to avoid anything that has Jar Jar Binks’ picture. What an abortion of a CGI character. I have no idea what Lucas was thinking. Ozuna has a 16 game hitting streak.

Okay, have a great day! 🙂 Remember to…

  1. I didn’t watch the Jays’ beatdown at the hands of Johanna’s boys, in fact I haven’t watched a ballgame in a few days (not even the Jays/Rangers Battle Royale. All in all it was a crappy weekend as I felt like shit all weekend (still do somewhat) and I’m still not 100% sure what caused it. Judging from the symptoms, it was either a flare-up of my Crohn’s, a bout of the flu, or a touch of food poisoning (or a combination of more than one of these), but it necessitated a visit to ER on Thursday evening with a severe dull pain in my guts that radiated right through to my back. It didn’t feel like a blockage (which x-rays confirmed), bloodwork came back negative and the on-call doc even did a quick ultrasound of my aorta to be sure it wasn’t that. Eventually I was sent home with good painkillers to help me sleep and woke up feeling only slightly better on Friday, but more painkillers and lots of sleep helped immensely. The rest of the weekend was spent alternating between feeling ok, and feeling crappy with a low-grade fever and no appetite, which really sucks because Saturday was my birthday and we had plans to go out to dinner as a family.

    But I’m back at work and feeling much better today than yesterday, and my appetite seems to be back, so I am ready to watch some ballgames and discuss them with y’all. For myself, my Jays and even for Kevin’s Yankees (yes, the Evil Empire needed to lose as bad as the Jays last night to keep the balance in the force), I offer the following anthem:


  2. I took my wife out to dinner yesterday evening and was surprised and happy to see the Twins and Tigers were on in my direct line of vision. Then I watched Berrios take a gigantic shit on my ratios that will take weeks to scrub off. But the salmon was good.

    I haven’t soured on Jose as a prospect, this being his first trip through the league, but I can’t say I’ve seen him exhibit anything but sporadic command in any of the outings I’ve seen.

    Tighten up, young man!
