Swing for the Fences

People look.  We’ve got some major league problems here on earth and it’s time to step up to the plate.  We can continue to try and get walks, hoping somehow we’ll score a run, or we can swing for the fences, and win this thing with power.  Walks are sometimes OK, but as the great Earl Weaver, longtime manager of the Baltimore Orioles once said, “You win games with three run homers”.  

I agree with Earl, I say it’s time to swing for the fences. It’s the bottom of the ninth man, we’ve got two on but two out.  Let’s send Eddie Murray up there and save our asses.

Hell, Babe Ruth must be rolling over in his grave.  We’ve got these weak ass singles hitters all over the Congress and Senate and a President who throws knuckleballs.  He couldn’t brush back a batter if his life depended on it.  Do you think if Nolan Ryan had been so pragmatic he would have struck out 5,700 batters?  Hell no, ole Nolan put the fear in batters hearts!

Come on now, we’ve got people on base.  We need a three run dinger.  If not, we could be Slippin into Darkness.  Pretty soon we gonna pay.

    Not that war!  

  1. just sayin’

  2. woohoo!  Just watched a No-No game by Jonathan Sanchez.    First no hit game for the Giants since 1976.  wow!  Sanchez came out of nowhere – he had a 2-8 record and was delegated to the bullpen in favor of a rookie in the starting rotation.  But due to an injury to Randy Johnson they gave him another start tonight.  I just love these Cinderella stories.    

    I ♥ my Giants!
