This is the second time I have been assigned a Monday Holiday game that played early. The last time, I went to my office and did some things and waited to file my report instead of waiting until the next morning. It went to extra innings. When the Braves failed to score in the 11th, I left. I remember it going 14 and us losing.
Nevertheless, I had the same plan today. And lo and behold counting one extra inning ( the new rule makes it hard to get to 14), it was a 4 hour game. But I stayed to the bitter end and it and most of the game was bitter.
I had to listen to an idiot on YouTube say that Jose Urena wasn’t throwing at anybody. Either he should be banned from Major League baseball as a menace or he should be expelled for throwing at good Braves players. You hit Freeman and Acuna (for the 3rd career time) in one game and you aren’t trying to throw at people? Huh?
There were two main negative themes. Ian Anderson had walk problems and 90% of the luck went the Marlins way. Also, Snit still needs an upper management approved bullpen flow chart. He ended up using 4 of his 6 best and most consistent bullpen pitchers (and the other 2 pitched yesterday). However, that was AFTER he put in Erlin who gave up 2 runs of his own.
So Duvall saves us by tying it in the 9th, and then we let them get the gift runner in and we can’t get our gift in.
Urine stinks. Add it to rotten fish, and the smell is worse. Add cuttlefish to the smell and you can’t get that off with clorox. But you can get blue or purple, depending on whether you leave your cuttlefish vat in the sun or in the shade.
