Air Attack

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 9, 2020

Keep swinging the bats, keep the bombs coming. With our shaky pitching staff, there is simply no other way. I actually felt pretty confident even when we were down 5-1. Plenty of time to come back and the Mariners don’t hit too well, they blew they load early.

Is Smyly back? Who else we got ready to go? Hold on to your hats, our SP is going to be switched up and changed up for the rest of this run.

    Can you imagine the ribbing a guy with a name like Yacabonis took while in 5th grade or so? Name like that is perfectly normal in a place like Greece, but in this melting-pot, the kid with the awkward handle either learns to use his fists or his sense of humor–self-deprecating in some cases.

      In grade school there were sister and brother twins named Jerkovitch. Her name was Irene. Can’t remember the brother’s name. The were tall-gangly gingers that took more than their share of shit.

        In 10th grade at Mpls Central there was a kid of probable Hindustani descent who had the name of Freddy Jackaway (not positive of the exact spelling after nearly 60 years and maybe never did learn it. ) When the coach/teacher asked each guy to sound out his name at the beginning of the term there was a chorus of titters and hoots. Tenth graders in gym class back in the day were about like ten Y.O.’s in this day and age.

    Smoak will replace panda. has to. if we are going to make a run in the plaoffs we need a pinch hitter than can actually hit. Another fun game!! In awe of this offense!

      can Smoak fill in as emergency catcher? Or 3B? And can Smoak still hit?

    Rico just proved he can pitch just fine in a low-pressure situation there in the 9th. Might be, that was an evaluation move and the timing could not have been better. A tiddle of yips in his first IP, but a groundout and a pair of special K’s earned him a nice report card for tonight’s performance.

    Ten of the remaining 16 are 7 with the Friar Tuckers and 3 with the Oaknutz, so its a tough schedule with only the four against the Rox (at Oracle) and a pair in Seattle as maybe not quite so challenging. Tomorrow night its up and down Chris Paddack for the Dagos against TBD for Los Gigantes. To split that series that first one is a virtual nother must-win.

    Currently, the team is ten runs up versus the opponents and with the 14th best record in MLB and currently #1 in wild-card status. It will be a challenge, but could be that Kapler has done a good job keeping his guys on an even keel, while adjusting the bullies and making the right moves on the field–like Ruf in the R-L switch with Dickerson last night even after Dick had hit a tater earlier in the evening.

    Anderson’s stout performance tonight was most encouraging and Smyly’s immanent return might settle the rotation. The manager also let Webb know that he had his back after his early yips last night, giving the guy that extra something which bucked him up. And like Lou Burdette for the old Milwaukee Braves, Webb hung tough and relied on a strong offense and a lights out bullpen to come up with a deserved win. As for that bullpen, what’s not to like, right about lately?
