if Stanton were our dearest wish
then here’s a trade to fox the Fish
BJ and cash, plus two
(who likely they’ll review)
so, Wren? Jamie? whadd’a they do?
Until that trade occurs we will press on with what we’ve got…and tonight’s a little special on the mound – our guy, Julio Teheran and theirs, Jose Fernandez – great match up…BTW did you see Jose last time out flash a lovely smile back at Tulo who had asked him, incredulously, ‘did you catch that?’ Yes he did, a screaming line drive, straight back at him – and that’s Tulo, you know, not Tuco, a far less savory character, now dead…and while we’re in trivia mode did you know Tulo and his best chum Cargo both have matching his and his black Ferrari Italias? and do you care? I do, black Ferraris, ugh!
and talking of that how about a bonus for FF, a red one, a job well done, an example set..
Ferrari for Freddie for fun
for showing the others what’s done
purporting to be
four fifty plus arm like a gun.
TO THE GAME
JT gives up lead off single then strikes out the side – fastball around 94 looks good
Elliot Ness continues to amaze, 1 out double…FF first pitch 2 run homer, wants that car.. BRAVES 2/0
Dan lasts 6 pitches, grounds out..AS tastes his own medicine, ground out, great throw Extratoseeher.
Fernandez chats to Mac, smacks a lead off triple, terrific play..Yelich,2/2, drives him in..JT rattled, walks 2..escapes, just. BRAVES 2/1
Teheran regains his composure..1/2/3 but it took a good CJ play to stop a Hernandez double!
Freddie on fire, lead off double..we can’t get him in despite big at 14 pitch bat by Mac and two walks.You have to like Jose-
he’s human, smiles, laughs…yes, refreshing..just like that Tulo story
JT gets Yelich for 8th strike out..off speed pitches working well.. 1/2/3
1/2/3..Ness ends it with a hard line out to second
Ruggiano out to smart play CJ/AS.. 1 out walk..another gem from Andrelton – course he can’t hit to please so many here..get off
Great interplay, FF/Hernandez, lovely stuff. Jose wins out..stays away from FB, strikes FF and Mac out..
Fernandez done, Ramos in..UGGLA HIT..BJ great bunt, all safe..GATTIS SIGHTING!! AS bunt, good..Gattis walked..GEEZ..Schafer on the spot..bases loaded,
1 out…Ramos out, Jennings in..Schafer hits into force out, EJ strikes out…cannot add to our lead
FF strikes out..Qualls in for Jennings..walks CJ 1 out..Mac hits into DP…another 20, 000 crowd, for a friday?? here we go, no Kimbrel…
Vavaro still in, going for first save! Gets Polanco, 1 out..There were the customary other 2 outs to close the proceedings and ensure a win for us and Vavaro’s
first save…i did not get to see those last 2 outs due to MLB crapola…my spies tell me(THANKS TO JS AND AR) that Extratoseeher flied out to BJ in center for second out…but big drama with the third OUT as Dobbs hitting for Mathis took a change up deep to the wall in right, JS making another good catch…he then threw the ball into the crowd and had to retrieve it for Vavaro…
Another one of these strange games where we score early and then can’t do a thing thereafter…so all the pitching is under pressure to shut them down and once again they came through tonight by the slimmest of margins…great game to watch though – i think Jose made himself a bunch of new friends on and off the field and it’s good to see Varvaro with a major league save FINAL BRAVES 2 MARLINS 1
