    Pugs?

    Now that I have my machine to make me chocolate shakes I think the next purchase should be a Snow Cone machine. A cherry snow cone, or grape – yummy!

    Beautiful recovery by Wacha. Two Ks and a groundout get him out of the inning.

    Webb looks terrible tonight. 2-0 Giants.

    Cards are getting BABIPed to death tonight…everything just under or over the glove.

    I guess the plan for the bullpen game is not paying off, so far.

    It sure does, Wooster. And for good measure, Rat just doesn’t have any shake/malt machine…..its one of those heavy metal ones that we used to have as kids. And now Rat is contemplating a snow cone machine to boot! Tell you what, Rat; if you buy that pitching machine too that you’ve been eyeing, them I’m inviting myself to your place the next time the wifey takes off on another one of her whirlwind weekends with her mommy and sisters. We’ll go visit the places where they filmed the movie “Hoosiers”, then drink Wild Turkey all the way back to your place where we’ll attack the pitching machine and hopefully take out a few of your neighbors windows in the process. Then it’s over to your friendly neighborhood Amish restaurant to pester the waitresses and try some of their world renowned cherry pie. Then it’s back to Rat’s house for a Barnaby Jones-Perry Mason marathon while indulging in snow cones and chocolate shakes aplenty.

    Nice choice with the Taco Bell, Wooster. I like their items too, but usually use my own salsa.

    Go Birds!

    I know it sounds like second guessing now but I don’t understand why we needed to do a bullpen game. seems like we could have brought someone up to start. may have worked out same way, but we will never know.

    bader needs to learn how to hit the ball to the right places to move guys over. of course with the pitcher batting, maybe best to try to score him himself, I just feel moving the guys over is what you should always do especially with 2 strikes.

    No outs always move em over, keeps you out of double play, why I love steals too.

    Pugs I got to take a nap before the Amish resturant. You guys just got too much energy to do a day like that, Sheesh!

    Of course Dejong hits the solo HR after Marcell wouldn’t take the walk. Still…4-2 and the Cards are creeping back.

    Need for our pitching to hold them so we can get back in it. Helsley did good last inning.

    I used to think that, but have become more optimistic about him over the last few weeks. Tonight, however, didn’t look good. I will say that it didn’t help Webb when the ump failed to notice Yastrzemski struck out before he hit the home run and DeJong should’ve caught the line drive after that.

    Really sloppy play tonight in a few instances. Most especially by Dejong, but Wong had one too with a chance to get the double play.

    That was some slop between the 2 Giants outfielders. Tied 4-4

    Welp, that brain fart is totally on Dejong. Giants get the 3 run homer and the lead.

    The stupidest, most pathetic, biggest bone-head play in the history of the game. Thank you DeJong.

    Well, that is a bit of an over-reaction Rat. There have been worse – the “Bonehead” Fred Merkle play in 1908 that cost the Giants the pennant, the Billy Buckner error in 1986 that cost the Red Sox the pennant, the Bartman/Alou mess-up in 2003 that may have cost the Cubs a pennant.

    Still, that was about as bad of a screw-up as I have seen in awhile.
