In the doubleheader, Nate Schierholtz went 6-for-10 with a homer, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, steal and back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-etc. starts from Bochy, go ahead with your big head self! “This is the year Schierholtz breaks out! And fill up my Merlot!” That’s every Giants fan for the last three years.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In last year’s top 80 outfielders post, I told you to take a flyer on Krispie Young, Delmon Young and Nick Swisher. Like the quarter of Harrison Ford that is Jewish, not too shabby. Then there was crap, crap, kinda crap and Jason Heyward.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The peasant Royals decided to send their big bargaining chip for three chips and a chip to be named later. This comes just days after Dayton Moore said Zack Greinke wasn’t happy and the Royals were going to trade him. This is like Ted Hughes saying Sylvia Plath wasn’t happy so he was going to cheat on her.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Francisco Rodriguez was arrested for assaulting his father-in-law. That’s going to make for awkward holidays. Or maybe they’ll skip Christmas and celebrate Boxing Day. Fred Wilpon needs to put some rubber bands in his beard and get K-Rod and Tony “Shirtless” Bernazard into the squared circle.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chase Utley was placed on the 15-day DL with a sprained thumb and he might need surgery. This injury opens up a big gaping hole in his owners’ hearts that can only be filled with junk food and hardcore drugs. Utley may not have been playing his weight in pomade, but at least you had him out there.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Drew Stubbs will replace Willy T. (<–Sounds like characters from a blaxploitation film. And neither are African-American. Weird!) Stubbs might get the shaft vs. righties but he can be baadasssss for speed. Drew Stubbs was selected a few picks before Travis Snider in the first round of the 2006 draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s just assume Joe Mauer hits 25 HRs, though no one south of the Arctic Circle has him projected for more than 18. And even some less optimistic Eskimos have him down for only 20. Let’s also assume after curing the swine (<–which is prosciutto, I believe), he hits .330.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is, the Rangers could only get one hit against Willis. That’s right, Dwyck. Dontrelle Willis went six and one-third, allowing only three baserunners and K’ing five. The Rangers came into the game hitting lefties extremely well (.291) with Kinsler at .460 and Michael Young at .372.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Josh Johnson injured? That would be precedented. He came out of the game with a weak right shoulder. Yeah, and I have a weak pitching staff without you. Afterwards, Johnson said, “I just don’t feel great.” That makes two of us.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jake Peavy is scheduled to start on Thursday. Despite the fact that Peavy’s been on the DL for much of the year and the whole offense blows except for A-Gonz and Brian Giles’ OBP, San Diego is only 7 games back of Arizona.Please, blog, may I have some more?
