Party Like It’s 2010

Ouch. A tough loss to the defending division champs. The Reds, as expected, are very good.

The Cubs continue to get on base… and not score.
The big RBI guys, including Ramirez and Lee, continue to squander opportunities with men on base.
Lou Pinella shuffled the lineup a bit, again, trying to get any production with runners in scoring position.

Wait. I’m getting an urgent tap on the shoulder from Doc Brown. Apparently, this is 2011. My humblest apologies. Replace Pinella with Quade, Ramirez with Ramirez and Lee with Pena. That looks about right.

If we’re going to turn back the clock, can we pick a year where we got clutch hits? Umm… hold on, I’ll come up with one… 2008 (pre-playoffs of course)? 2003? Never mind. 1984? We have a winner. Someone find me Sutcliffe, stat. And get Moreland out of the radio booth. Where’s Sandberg? The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs? What? That’s either the greatest name in the history of organized sports or the worst. Prep the DeLorean for 1984, Doc. And this time, Durham – watch the damn 5 hole. That was doubleplusungood.


Time to get going. It’s a long season – but it’s getting shorter.

This is like déjà vu all over again.

    Thanks for the awesome shot of Paul Konerko’s epic pink cleats of awesomeness. If they don’t appear next mother’s day, I’m going to be very disappointed. And, he better keep track of them, for when we end up in another downturn. I think they might be good luck.

    CLutch hit??? what is that? A couple of days ago my beloved Dodgers had the bases loaded with no outs and could they score? Nope, nada! Not even if they had their pockets full of dollars could they score.
    Love the post and the car pic! Nice memories of yesterdays.

    Oh do I feel your pain some games. The Angels either hit with runners in scoring position and we win or can’t to save their lives and we don’t. Roll the dice…though it is working out more often than not.
    Imagine walking out of the grocery store and seeing the DeLorean in the parking lot. Living in L.A. you see a lot of weird movie stuff from time to time and there is someone who must live near me who owns the DeLorean from Back to the Future II because I keep seeing it in the darndest of places.
    This is a very simple game…
