Game 6 - If I Can Dream

THE TEAM must need to do a better job of stretching and/or warming up before the game. Once again we gave up 7 runs in the first inning. Once again we kept our cool and chipped away at the lead. Once again THE TEAM won!!! That whole victory thing just never gets tired. It was a close game with THE TEAM up 12-11 late when Lou and Peter added home runs late to overcome our blizzard of errors and put the game away.

That umpire is a polite and conscientous gentleman but he is also a senior citizen who seems to be operating with degrading faculties because the final card said it was a 15-12 win but THE TEAM only scored 14.

Here are some nice details:

THE TEAM batted .667 with 2 Home Runs 4 Doubles 5 Walks and 1 Strikeout. There were RBIs by 10 different players. Now that's a team effort.

The whole Elvis thing has run it's course (A Lamar Fike Memphis Mafia Jacket? What a bunch of bulls**t). For the second half of the season we will award... um... a book of Ozzie Guillen quotes that he never actually said. It was a full effort by everybody on THE TEAM but The Great Book of Ozzie Guillen Quotes that he never actually said goes to Andrew who went 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs. Jad gets The Great Book of Ozzie Guillen quotes that he never actually said by going 3 for 3 with a walk and an RBI.

Thanks Ozzie. Good luck in Florida

Hopefully we got all our errors outta the way....and luckily our bats were hot. However, when you still play defensively poorly and we sneak away with a win, I'll take it. I know that's not how we normally play, so when we get back on track with defense, I say BRING ON "CAN YOU DIG IT"! And Chris pitched a gem and had some great defensive stops, by the way.

I promise I will continue in my efforts to avoid whacking the ball straight into the centerfielder's mitts. Thanks to Lou for the batting tips, which will be practiced, honed and perfected at the thursday night batting cage practices.
