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 O.co 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…
