Pre Game Bits and Pieces
The Red Sox were the best in baseball when hitting with two outs and runners in scoring position – the dodgers 23rd Looks like the Dodgers emphasis on elevating their swings to win with the long ball has its down side which showed up in game one and game two.
The Red Sox think that Manny Machado was relaying the catchers signals from second base to the hitters in game two and they’re pissed. How does the enforcement of the unwritten rules work in the world series? You don’t wanna plunk a guy and put him on in a do or die championship game. Does it carry over to next year? Maybe they could throw a rock at him in the parking lot.
Non World Series news: The Twins now have the youngest manager in the league and he has a really cool name – Ravishing Rocco. Jealous Histro?
Stream of Consciousness
This should keep us awake for a while
Top Of The First
Strike one 98. Strike two 96. Strike two foul 99. Then he missed a breaking ball. 3 and 2 99 foul out of play. Strike three 98. Was that a changeup? Second at bat he hits 100 then 99, then gets him out with a 95 changeup – cutter. Third hitter hits a 100 again. It’s 3 and 2, pop fly on a 100 mph fastball. All this took 25 pitches.
(Editor note: we’re talking about the Dodger’s Ferris Buehler)
Bottom of the first lefty heavy Dodgers
Wimp Ricky P is throwing low nineties, but he gets through it.
Top of the second
More off speed stuff. A beach ball. An out. Cheese. On we go.
Bottom of the second;
Crafty Ricky I guess. On we go.
Top of the third
Base running blunder, thank God. One out. Au gratin. Defense matters. Pitcher bunts. No matter.
Bottom of the third
Nice defense. The elevated swing thing from the lefty heavy Dodgers and we see first blood. A double second time through from another lefty. Are the stat heads putting the keyboards aside to jerk off? Better hurry up, inning over.
(Editor note: yes he has been drinking the entire game and he started in the pre game)
Top of the fourth
Processed cheese. One out. A little cheddar we’ll see. Sharp cheddar. Two outs. Extra sharp cheddar with jalapenos. You go Ferriss! WWWWEEEEE!!!!.
Bottom of the fourth
Oh shit. I wanna see this thing go at least five.
Getting tired? Maybe this will help
Top of the fifth
Ferris got an arm hanging off his right side. One out. But there’s a little bit of suffering doubt in his face. Nonetheless on we go.
Bottom of the fifth – come on west coast mutants – time to break this thing open
Runner on. Ferriss throwing too well to take out but can’t bunt. Still crafty Ricky P is taken out. Premature? Arrogant east coast mutants?
Top of the sixth – We’ve seen your arm Ferris now show us you heart
98 mph on pitch 92 and on we go.
Bottom of the sixth
Machado did not run hard. Elevated swing, pop fly. Inning over. Is it genetic? Has Ferriss got more?
Top of the seventh
100th pitch, 98. Martinez out on a 98. Crab fondue. Here comes Ferriss!
Bottom of the seventh
Cheesy reliever, of course. High chopper reaches. So cool. Kemp gets a shot. Too bad.
Top of the eight – Kenley Jansson I got a bad feeling, hope I’m wrong
Pop fly one out. Out 2. Shit.
Bottom of the eight – Dodgers are three outs ahead
An out. A hit. An out no double play. Sorry, but the TV is on mute and I can’t watch no more because the shit hurts really bad tonight. They let Tony out and I have no fucking idea where he is.
An older Arlo once said you can make the world a better place just by feeling good when you don’t feel like feeling good.
Loss of Consciousness
Woke up in the 14th inning
Tied at 2, are you kidding.
Your turn. Tell me what happened next.
