Prof: My date was better than good. It’s great when a very nice, handsome fellow treats you like a human being and laughs at your jokes. 🙂 I’m not going to count my chickens before they hatch, but it was just a really great evening for me.
It wasn’t too great of a day for our friends across the ocean in Manchester, England. In solidarity with these young kids who only wanted to have a good time and lost their lives through no fault of their own, today I’m posting some Ariana Grande songs.
Twins 14, Orioles 7 – Scouts: This was fucking painful to watch. No offense to Minnesota, but holy shit the Orioles stunk up the joint. Ubaldo was typical Ubaldo, and for the life of me I can’t understand why they continue to give Tyler Wilson the ball.
Rockies 8, Phillies 1 – Prof: Nolan Arenado hit a two run blast and the Rockies might actually have a pitcher who isn’t a burnout or a stop-gap measure! His name is Jeff Hoffman. He’s young, Colorado’s number two prospect, and was a high draft pick. Young master Hoffman went seven innings, struck out seven, and also had his first major league hit. More than likely he’s going back down to triple A but it’s nice to see the Rockies finally, FINALLY, have some sort of pitching talent.
Royals 2, Yankees 4 – Scouts: Brett Gardner, Didi Gregorius, and Chris Carter all went yard for the Yanks, extending their lead in the East.
Indians 1, Reds 5 – Prof: The Magical Land of Cleve wasn’t so magical. Sad face. Jason Kipnis went yard but to no avail. The Reds had a solid start from Scott Feldman and somehow Cincinnati was able to grab hold of a win.
Pirates 2, Braves 5 – Prof: The Braves were able to catch lightning in a bottle last night. Red hot Ender Inciarte had five hits, Brandon Phillips hit his 200th career home run, and new first baseman Matt Adams found that power stroke to slug in a two run homer.
Giants 6, Cubs 4 – Scouts: Lacky did not have his A game, giving up 5 runs in 5 innings to the typically hapless Giants. Chicago did attempt a comeback in the 8th, but came up short.
White Sox 1, Diamondbacks 5 – Prof: It’s nice to see our old friend Zack Greinke doing well again. I was concerned for a while, but maybe he was just having issues? ZG went 8 2/3rds innings and only gave up one run, a homer to Leury Garcia.
Angels 3, Rays 2 – Scouts: The winning run in this one came on a wild pitch by Ryne Stanek. What a horrible way to lose a ballgame.
Tigers 0, Astros 1 – Prof: Historio’s boys were done in by a Jose Altuve double. Orbit approves!
