Mt. Everest Was Once A Hill

“It’s awesome to see the team doing well,” he [Hill] said. “We’ve gone 10-1. But I look at that and see that one loss and think, ‘That was me’ (laughs). … You don’t want to walk around with such a poopy diaper all the time. Be optimistic. I’ve caught myself a couple times this year.”

Hill seemed to have lost his focus last time out after allowing his first runner. Until that moment he looked pretty solid.

Save Chief Wahoo

What enters the mind when you view this photo?

I’ll bet, Orel is thinking?

Hey!

I can get extra tickets to the World Series for my Indian friends, through Pantone 294 this year…

 

I read somewhere, earlier, that our new Commissioner is currently in discussion to end Chief Wahoos term as the Ambassador of Cleveland Baseball.

I wonder if there has been any discussion about Making Chief Wah’Orel  the new Ambassador?

Here’s today’s line-up folks…

Seager SS

Turner 3B

Bellinger 1B

Grandal C

Taylor LF

Forsythe 2B

Clayton Kershaw will be starting the day game against the Giants.  That’s nice and everything, but the Dodgers already lost the series.  What’s the point?

“Oh, but it’s only May, and these games don’t count as much as the ones in September.”

Bullshit!  The season lasts 162 games.  You have got to give everything you’ve got to try and win each and every game.  Games in April and May count every bit as much as games in August and September.  Don’t be trotting out the crap lineups anymore.

Game time:  12:45pm PDT / 1:45 MDT / 2:45 CDT / 3:45 EDT

Cody “Bombay” Bellinger

Time:  1:00pm Date: April 25, 2017 Place: Phone Booth Stadium, Gnatsville, USA

Cody “Bombay” Bellinger has just been called up to the big leagues by the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Bellinger hit 65 home runs in just over 1300 at bats in the minors.  He has been on fire in AAA Oklahoma City in 2017, hitting .343 with an on-base percentage of .429, a slugging percentage of .627, and an On-Base plus Slugging Percentage (OPS) of 1.055.  Defensively, Cody plays a mean first base, possibly better than James Loney, possibly better than Adrian Gonzalez.  Initially, he will be playing left field and center field.

The lefty Bombay will likely play left field when the opposition starts a left-handed pitcher, as Kike Hernandez will man center field on those days.  Bombay will likely play center field when the opposition starts a right-handed pitcher, while Andrew Toles mans left field.
