Little Leaguer, my phonics is on some clearly ironic shit
like hittin pick six on the day of the apocalypse...
Yesterday's chatter about the Rox involved Jason Gimabi, and how he was slowing down and perhaps was a liability to the team off the bench in pinch hit situations. His whiff at the end of the end of Wednesday's game on a 93 MPH fastball didn't endear him to the Purp Masses. (In fariness, I thought the preceding pitch- a called second strike six inches off the plate- messed with his head and caused him to overswing at the very next offering, which teh pitcher knew would happen. A decided advantage.)
Almost on cue, Giambi took over last night's game and seeded the eastern Pennsylvania clouds with three dingers. Most impressive are the names of the players he joins: Musial, Reggie Jackson, Ruth, all playuers with three homers in one game over 40. Equally impressive were his chances to join the elite four homer club, which includes one Bob Horner, who rocked the coolest white man gheri curl/mullet/bleach blond haircut ever.
