Listen I’m not a crazy huge fan of these, but UA has been doing an incredible job on all these other teams/contracts they have been getting *cough* Notre Dame *cough*. These aren’t even official mock ups from The Under Armour team. All I know is, all of the signs, decals, official gear, I’ve seen has all tried to incorporate the triangle shit in the Lindner Center, so I can’t say I’m a huge fan, but I kinda just want to get rid of the cat scratches, no serious teams have shit like that on their unis. And we gotta get serious… #GunnerDown
Just taking over. Dude it’s Kanye’s birthday. “Don’t mind me I’m just gonna show these 30 million people my abs and they’ll just totally forget that Ye is even in the picture at all.” The Biebs is the fuckin man (boy), it’s just that simple.
If you are a little freakish about knee/leg/ankle/shin/everything in the lower part of the body, i guess you could possibly cringe at this, so last chance to look away…
FOR GOD SAKES COZART WAS HAVING THE BEST SEASON OF HIS CAREER BY A FUCKING MILE!!!!!!!!
Joey being an absolute legend out there. From hitting 3 bombs per game, to learning spanish so he can make jokes with Cueto and company, to lifting the lifeless Cozart off of the field, this guy does it all and seems to bring it every night even when the team is playing like shit. If we had to pay a shitty contract to anyone, I’m glad it was Joe.
Now for actual game notes during the game I couldn’t attend because, like you I was stuck in a cubicle.
DeJesus is on Fiiire and will have to stay that way if he’s gonna play SS the rest of the year while Cozart is rehabbing/trying not to die. Just an absolutely gruesome knee injury there.
Here is his 2nd Bomb of his MLB career….
And Frazier with a little flavor spicing it up for the fans!
Just a phenomenal player thru and thru, his glove and his bat and his swag and his “unlocking the bank vault” celebration or whatever that is… is fire flames!
Nine game losing streak followed by…a three game sweep of the hottest team (the Nats) and the hottest hitter (Bryce Harper) in baseball. This is the worst thing about the Red’s is that they’ll lose 9 straight and you’ll think that you’re allowed to check out on your expectations, and then they absolutely DOMINATE a series in which they were expected to lose 10 out of 10 times. Just fucking with your emotions at every turn, every chance they get. Now it’s getting hot, we are heading into summer and there are still 4 months left in the season to overcome anything that they could possibly need. Those long balls are gonna be flying out for the next 4 months, so maybe this team can shape up, this pitching staff can establish some health and consistency and we can actually fucking CONTEND! All we have to do is catch the Cubbies and Buccos, the Cardinals have pretty much wrapped up the division already, but a wildcard is ALL you need.
We have a bunch of losing teams slated in the next few series and weeks so lets ride on the coattails of Canadian Jesus!
Here we go baby! Love this fire, love Votto. Something needs to get this team fired up and winning, becuase i have no idea how anyone can live with the fact that we win the first in ATL and then proceed to lose the following three games. That is the one thing you just can’t do. So lets get into it….
The Terrible first pitch called strike that started it all.
The rest of the at bat.
Starting to simmer, Helmet slam got my a little hard.
“What’d you say to me?(to pitcher)…You just pitch, I’ll hit (can’t lip read next part)….motherfucker.”
Votto just realizing that he has been ejected and went out to take infield all before finding out. I guess you can say theis Votter has come to a boil!
Makes Contact with Ump, proceeds to subject himself to fines, suspension, and possibly lose his mind! And you know what I couldn’t be happier!
Leake, Billy, and Tucker “rec specs” Barnhart all played longball last night in ATL as Leake dominated in 8 scoreless in Atlanta. Hopefully this can lead to something known in professional sports as a winning streak, and even more so… some fucking road wins. This is an excellent series to have on the road to build some momentum while we go into Pittsburgh after the weekend. The braves are mediocre, and not only that, but they just got DEMORALIZED by the Nationals when they gave up a 10 run lead primarily to Dan Uggla, who they are paying 6MM to this season. Let’s get a road sweep in the works and take care of business.
Homer is on the 60 Day DL/Out for the season. Looks like he’s gonna need tommy john surgery that will obviously end his season. So we might as well mentally prepare for the fact that we won’t see him until this time next year. These guys always come back so strong after tommy john, that I’m not even worried. At least we are suring up the back end of that shit deal that we signed Homer to before last season began. He got Jon lester money. I’ve just become a fan of “surgery first rehab later” rather than these guys trying to get rest, then rehab and rebuild the muscle, because it never works and they end up getting surgery anyways.
So now we’ll just have to see what Lorenzen can do. Hopefully he and/or Iglesias will ball the rest of the season and this lineup wakes up because I really don’t want to have to watch another tank job when we should be competing (or at least our payroll says we should be).
PS- Is there any doubt that Walt Jocketty needs to be fired at this point? We have traded away good players since we have had him calling the shots, got the shitty side of multiple trades, and signed terrible, over-inflated contracts to injury prone players. And on top of that all, we cleared all of this cap space and still won’t be able to sign Cueto after this season.
Also if price has anything to do with the reason he still is playing these shit bullpen players, he needs to get the can too. He better be getting billy beaned into this shit by Walt.
Another day, another step closer to Barry!
Well if you told me that we were gonna be 4-2 at this point I would’ve been ecstatic. But the fact of the matter is, losing to the Cardinals at our yard hurts like a bitch. Not only that, but we skipped a rotation spot to pitch Cueto on 5 days rest and lost that game in a pitchers dual on Saturday. Then we come back on Sunday, battle hard take a 2 run lead after 7 and then Jumbo comes in and blows that lead in the top of the 8th. This early in the season and we can’t find a guy to lock down the eighth. Like every single time we have needed a guy to shut that down this season (like every game) that guy has given up big runs.
Positives: Chapman is the best pitcher in baseball. Frazier, Votto, and Hamilton are producing and we have been in every single game we’ve played.
The bottom of the lineup HAS to start producing. Byrd, Meso, BP is doing okay, and Bruce needs to keep hitting bombs. I like the way Price has been managing thus far, but we have to keep that fire like a bunch of fucking outlaws that nobody respects or it’s gonna be a long ass year.
Now for tonight, we got Lester and the Cubs @ Wrigley and it’s almost a must win. I wanted to call Sunday a must win. After a devastating loss to the cards Saturday i thought we needed to bounce back with a series win. With any team that has championship pedigree the team has to learn how to keep 1 loss from turning into 2 and into 3 or so on. It’s just a fact and we have yet to prove it. This is our first adversity of the season and i want to see how we handle it.
