Saturday Saturday Saturday Saturday It’s All Right

It’s getting late have you seen my mates
Ma tell me when the boys get here
It’s seven o’clock and I want to rock
Want to get a belly full of beer

My old man’s drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
And my old lady she don’t care
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
A handful of grease in her hair

Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
`Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright alright alright

Well they’re packed pretty tight in here tonight
I’m looking for a dolly who’ll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out “She’s with me!”

A couple of the sound that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I’m a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
`Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright alright alright

Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
`Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright alright alright

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night’s alright

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night’s alright

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night’s alright

I don’t think this is about fightin’.

Day Two of the Fatnasty Playoffs 8-26-15

Pups took a point back to close it down to 7-2 in favor of Puddin’ Pop, but this doesn’t include ERA and WHIP where the latter is out to a commanding lead. Thor was shaky last night, but 9 Ks and the W are a sight better than what Charlie Morton threw up out there. A couple of saves were a nice tack on. Meanwhile, Pupy thought it was a good idea to start both Matt Cain and Robbie Ray. That did not go well as they gave up a combined 12 runs in 8 innings. Oh and James Shields sucked too. Two homers and a steal from Michael Brantley helps ease his pain, some, but the rest of the offense was relatively quiet. It especially hurts when Pudi equals those homers from Joey Bats and CarGome, though he got little else on offense.

Flipping over to our other contest we see the same score of 7-2 in favor of the Blackmon Klubers. A quality start from Jose Quintana was his only pitching, but it came with 6 Ks in 6 IP and he didn’t walk anybody. So that’s nice. Homers from Gattis and Rougned “What’s that” Odor highlighted a pretty strong day at the dish as only Suarez and Shaw failed to reach base. Meanwhile, Diaper got a solid, albeit short, start from the perpetually underrated Arrieta who went 6 striking out 8 with 1 walk and picked up the win for his efforts. Those Cubs are scorching right now. Jesse Chavez did not have similar luck as he gave up more runs than innings and put over 2 guys on base per inning. Familia helped out a little bit with the four out save. On the offensive side getting four steals from Dee Gordon is a pretty good week, except he did all of that YESTERDAY! He was kind of a one-man army, though, as the rest of the offense underwhelmed.

 

8-25-15 One Day Down in the Fatnasty Playoffs

While Imperialism and I are resting up to crush the winners of these first series’ we do have some games that matter. Pudding Ron had a huge day with three homers, 18 bases, and 9 RBI to pair with a brilliant J.A. Happ start to take a commanding 9-1 lead over PupsD. Beef Castillo, J.D. Martinez and Guti hit the dingers. Pupy got a nice game from Brock Holt!, but that is about it.

Blackmon Klubers got out to a similar start with four dingers and nine runs/RBI to go with a really nice start by Kluber who pitched into the 8th with 11 Ks. Andrew Miller vultured a win to go with a couple of Ks around a hit. Diaper was no slouch as he got big games from Kid Cuddy and the scorchingly hot Nick Castellanos. Both hit dingers with Jay Bruce also having a nice day including an RBI double and a stolen base.

We’re one day into a 2-week series so stay tuned, but early narratives are establishing themselves.

Softball Tourney Update

On a glorious, sunshiny Saturday our first game was at 10:45. It was nice to avoid the early games since we had about an hour drive to one of the finest hilltop parks in existence. The later game proved especially clutch when I almost threw up half a dozen times on the ride up from the numerous Pumkings I had enjoyed the night before. Our first game came against a team that should have been in the upper division, but due to a tie they elected to play with us bums in the lower division. We played them tough, but¬†they were perfectly groomed for this field as they were all dead pull righties that hit long fly balls. Most days those turn into a bunch of easy outs, but this field butted up against a stand of trees so that anything from the left field line to the deepest part of left center that got into that stretch of woods was an automatic double. There was no limit to how many you could hit in there. They hit many. I batted third all day¬†ripping a double into those very woods so it’s hard to complain, though they would haunt me later.
