A Melvin Mauling


Although I'm typing this in the 8th inning, I'm going to go ahead and say you couldn't have drawn this game up any better for the Rocks after last night's meltdown. Mora knocking the ball all over the place and collecting 5 RBIs (one shy of an RBI for each of his half a dozen kids), Frank-Dog pitching an impressive 7 innings after 3 shit outings, and the Marlins looking stupid a day after celebrating a regular season win like they just won the World Series. Looking at the pitching matchups these next two games, getting a victory tomorrow with HamBone on the mound might be critical to avoid a series loss (Josh Johnson goes for FL on Thursday).

Someone get that older child a pair of shades! Oh, the cruelty.

Tonight's game (in addition to being a blowout from the start leading to my well deserved MLB Rockies game comfort) featured the most Mora smiling ever. The dude is usually so sour or serious looking. On multiple occasions the broadcast exposed a smiling, gay, Melvin Mora. Pretty rad.
The Giambino nearly molested Melvin after the HR and Mora frankly loved it. (Check the tapes)

I'm not a mathematician but based on the photo in the post, I've got the feeling that Melvin gets himself laid.

Oh. And with no sarcasm or humour...great to see Francis get it on. For real.

Considering all of those children look the same age (except the shadeless one?), I'm assuming Melvin got laid a total of 3 times in order to produce those 6 kids. Maybe twice. And yes, the smiling was so out of character and good to see. It was a special night for Melvin after all.

On 2nd look, is that old kid blind? An odd choice to deny shades. Definitely only 3 times laid for 6 kids.....

Did you guys notice the recent t-shirt night additions?

Giambi a week from saturday and Ubaldo sometime in September.

Giambi, after a rocky start has earned his T-shirt jersey night.
It'd be a rad one to get.

TroutDog said...

Have they added a Morales one yet?

The Giambi one is for a Cubs game, right? Might be a good one to go to.....

Yeah, unfortunately I can't go as my apartment lease (no, not yo-lease) is up that day, and I'll be busy trying to clean my way to a good return on my deposit.
