The battle of Brooklyn. Bay Ridge vs. Bensonhurst, McWop vs. Pizza Bagel. Let's get it on. This one couldn't get any closer if it tried. Looks like it could be a photo finish. AN A-BOMB.......FROM A-GON!!!!!!!! Is this guy serious? Despite Yankee Mike's great pitching performances this week, so far he's come up goose eggs. Hold onto your butts, fellas, this is gonna be an exciting one.
We could be seeing a potential PG Series matchup early in the season. The Daddy's are hanging in there (albeit by a very thin thread). His Gavin Floyd outing could have potentially knocked him out of the week entirely (as there is little room for error going up against #9's staff), but luckily Jordan Zimmerman and Clayton Kershaw got touched up a bit. If A-Rod wakes up and smells the PED's this week, we could see a nail biter down the stretch. #9 has had a bit of a power loss this week, but there is plenty of at-bats to be had (and his hitters at least seem to be in a zone).
Sometimes life gives you the yin and the yang. Yin for Fenway Ed (leading against a top contender in PG East), yang for Fenway Ed (Boston Bruins embarrassed themselves and are out of the playoffs). Yin for The Ger (Hawks in the conference finals), yang for The Ger (embarrassing himself in fantasy baseball). One homer, that's all you have, one God damned homer? You can't say God damned on PG Sportsworld. Who cares, nobody's reading. If Fenway Ed expands his lead in runs or K's, call a cab because this one is over.
Clark & Addison-6
Ladies and gentleman, we have a PG first. Congrats to QBF for being the first general manager to manage his team from overseas in the motherland, Ireland. Oh QBF, the pipes, the pipes are calling, from glen to glen, and down the mountainside. Much like when the Irish suffered through the potato famine, both teams are suffering from the production famine. Just miserable numbers across the board. Now that you're back from Dublin, QBF, will you finally put David Ortiz out of his misery? Hey 3K, great production from Russell Martin (wink).
Whichever way you cut it, having a .440 average going into the weekend is flat out filthy. Not a lot of power from Hoosier Heat, but by God are they hitting that ball. And I'm sure Mr. Hackman was happy to see the performance by C.C. last night. Meanwhile Rocky Mike is scratching and clawing to make this a game. I know Rocky Mike, and he will not put up with a loss like this. I can envision him checking the scores on his computer, seeing the 9-1 score, getting up and throwing his hat as hard as he can across his house. Don't count him out just yet. There are enough categories still in play to completely change the complexion of this matchup.
We've been waiting for this matchup for sometime now. Two heavyweight trash talkers lobbing gay bombs at each other like the battle of Stalingrad. Be sure to check back frequently today...I have a feeling we're going to see an epic battle waged by two stellar wordsmiths. And thus far, T-Dub clearly has the advantage. Mr. Consistency is just maintaining atop first place of PG West. He's not giving up the top slot without a fight, and it's now a test of wills to see who blinks first. Brad Hawpe? Seriously...Brad Hawpe? The Carlos Quentin heel injury is clearly hurting Linc (and I'm sure a sigh of relief was breathed after Geo Soto hit his first homer of the season). Things could be worse, Linc, you could be your brother and have David Ortiz.
