Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I also visited Miami and...I got to meet the Dinger Machine.

My heavens, it's every bit as awesome as Timby says it is.

I personally think it looks silly myself, but hey to each their own. Certainly no worse than any of the other silly eccentricities all the other parks have.

The Dinger Machine does not smile fondly upon your blasphemy. Look upon it, ye mighty, and despair.

Unfortunately I didn't actually get to see it go off. One day, though...

Bright Vegas style lights that go off when the other team is winning?! Oh noes!

Hey, at least it's not a train!

Though I wouldn't call 14 straight division titles "years of suckiness" by any stretch.
Along with a World Series title.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I was bored & reading about old time players.

The last time the Cubs won a World Series, Mordecai Brown got them in.

Maybe we could dig him up & throw a uniform on him.

Couldn't hurt.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

That Mets bullpen kills me every time. I was psyched after the pinch hit homer by Valdespin, thinking hey maybe they'll pick up a game on the Nats, until Parnell came in and guzzled down 10 and a half feet of meat whistle in the bottom of the 9th.

Until recently, I flip-flopped between another starter and a right handed bat as their big need at the deadline. They really need bullpen help in the worst way.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Always fun to see someone go home and light it up, like Buster Posey did last night. Hope they saved some runs for the remainder of the trip though. I would say winning both these series would be great, sweeping both would exceed expectations.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I would bet on the Giants winning again tonight just because Minor is pitching for the Braves, and he's just not any good this year. Tommorow night's Bumgarner/Hudson match up should be a good game though.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Fuck that cocky motherfucking piece of shit Melky Cabrera. When he was in Atlanta, he was a fat cocksucking fuck who couldn't run to first base without a big fucking grin and tripping over his own fucking feet that he could barely see.

He suddenly lost 50 pounds and started practicing the sport of baseball and now he's out there taunting baserunners, doing fake tosses to fans, crotch chops, coming out of the dugout when somebody threw his HR ball back, and pointing to the crowd after home runs. He needs to go die in a fucking fire.

Wow, tell us how you really feel.

I didn't see any of that so I don't know, but I do like the passion.

And I also like the somewhat back to back 3 run home runs that just happened.
