Miss me guys? …..Didn’t think so.
First and foremost- 3 out of 4 in Pittsburgh, 2 out of 3 in Atlanta- impressive, the dogs are for real. Whatever Bills is doing with that beard, keep it going. I am trying so hard to believe in Bills…like that girl that has already cheated on you but SWEARS she won’t do it THIS time…..I’m trying to erase the cheating Bills but its SO hard.
I just returned to Florida after a week off with family vacationing on Hilton Head Island,SC. For those who have not been there, I recommend it. Great place to get away with family. Hilton Head is a very peaceful and quiet island on the coast of southern South Carolina which is surrounded by Spanish moss trees and all sorts of wildlife. We have plenty of gators in Florida but they seem to be all over this place. On our way home we experienced a dead car battery stopping at a Peach stand in very rural Georgia-if you have seen the move “Deliverance” you would get the idea. Fun trip and great memories!
Here is my take on the Melky situation and PED’s in baseball. I have been a personal trainer for ten years and have seen every kind of PED possible in and out of the gyms that I have lifted and worked in.
- I wonder when Major League Baseball will stop patting themselves on the back and realize lots of players are still using performance enhancing substances/steroids. At this point, it is pure ignorance to not realize intelligent players (or their advisors) can manipulate hormones in a way to USUALLY never get caught. Science will always be a step or two ahead of testing.
- Cleaner, yes! Clean, Hah!
So, off my PED rant, I am going to do it again….I am going to call this the “Calm before the Storm, Part 2”……The last time I predicted this, Stephen Fife took the mound against Matt Cain in game 1 in San Fran, so could I be any more of a lunatic? If I was a billionaire in Vegas, I’d be broke.
So without further ado….
“There’s a storm a brewin, and I think we all know where it will touch down. It is time to man up, roll up the sleeves, and take off the training wheels.
I think the boys in blue go home and sweep the Giants. Yes, I said it. It’s time for Kemp, Ethier, and HanRam to make a statement in this division. “
“Matt Kemp is due-I say he goes yard tomorrow”-Remember this???
Well, he is due and yes, Matt Kemp goes yard tomorrow…
Do you believe?
Justin Gunsaulus was at the game yesterday – here’s his report:
Another day, another game without Don, another win. On the day I debut my beard, Billingsley “rolls with it.”
Chad Beardingsley was as solid as you can get. 7.0 innings / 101-63 pitches / 3 hits / 4 strikeouts / 0 earned runs
Beardingsley is sticking with the beard, I unfortunately must shave mine for work but I will roll with the mustache until we get to the World Series.
Belisario held people in check in the 8th with 2 strikeouts.
Welcome back Scott Elbert with a cool 9th inning to secure the win. Scott had 1 strikeout / no walks / no hits.
Another home run. I am campaigning for this kid to be our first baseman when SpeeDEE Gordon comes back. All he does is get on base and hit. It will be an upgrade at the sixth hole where Poney resides (yeah that’s right bases loaded and it was all setup for you My Little James Poney. It was your time to shine! Swing for the fence! GRANDSLAM!!!!! Nope, line out to Freddie Freeman. Poney it is.) After a couple of errors by the say Hey-Hey kid’s glasses, the Dodgers blew up the scoreboard. Today’s story was the 7th and 8th hitters carried the team. Luis Cruz went 2-4 with a solo shot. AJ Ellis went 3-4 with a run. The 3 and 4 hole hitters combined for 0-10 with a total of 8 men left on base. Can’t have that. Dodgers took 2 out of 3, let’s keep that going moving forward!!!!
The Dodger baseballs blocked out the sun for Jason Heyward (not so top ten nominee)
DFA Kennedy and bring up Sands already.
Uribe drew a walk. I saw a pig fly.
Everyday RDLR gets closer is one more day I will never have to see Joe Blanton in a blue uniform.
I head back to Jacksonville today. It’s been fun recapping these three games I went to. It’s been a pleasure writing these and I thank Mark for letting me do it. If Mark will have me I’ll be coming to y’all every Friday! It’s been real. See ya soon.
