Because sports should never run your life ... retorts for sports

MLB Update:

  • Price looks nice, and Xander gets up his dander in a crushing ninth inning as the Red Sox gear up to complete a very successful seige of St. Petersburg. Go Sawx! #RedSox #Rays
  • Buccos bury Bailey early, and then dance on the dead Reds’ graves late on a triple snow cone produced by J. Hay … hey, hey, hey! #PIrates #Reds
  • The jury’s certainly out (and probably never coming back) as to the qualifications for Jeurys as a major league closer, after he allows the Marlins to painfully nip the Muts. #Mets #Marlins
  • How did Profar hit the ball so far? It appears to be attributable to CC and some other suspect Yankee pitching. #Rangers #Yankees
  • Jake’s juicy fruit really gums up the Braves’ offense. #Braves #Phillies
  • Feisty Fathers finally find satisfaction against Washington … what a National disgrace. #Padres #Nationals
  • Stros confirm what every sensible fan already knows … the aged Giants have no business being seen anywhere near sea level. #Giants #Astros
  • Mediocrity reigns supreme in Missouri baseball, as the miserable Royals maybe aren’t that bad, and stuck up St. Louis is definitely overrated. #Royals #Cardinals
  • Good god, Godley wasn’t good, but his athletic supporters up and down the D-back lineup were practically non-existent. #Diamondbacks #Brewers

NBA Playoffs Update, Recap and Perspectives: Wednesday, 5-23-18 (click post for audio)

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Poor exhausted LeBron probably should have never put his jersey on for tonight’s throw away game in the Garden. Cleveland tried to fake it, but tonight their leader just wasn’t bringing it, and the James master plan appears to be to get a shot of adrenaline for Game 6, and then lay it all on the line in Game 7. This strategy usually works in the Eastern Conference, but based on what we saw tonight, don’t count on it. Boston is just coming at the King from too many angles, resulting in mental and physical fatigue, missed shots, and … turnovers. And if Houston can get by GSW, this team in green can, indeed, win it all. #Cavaliers #Celtics
  • LeBronshanks looks good in Cavalier colors, doesn’t he?

MLB Update:

  • There’s a Puig sighting in LaLa Land, and the Doyyers are actually still alive and fighting. #Dodgers #Rockies
  • Texas makes the Yankees’ road trip a bit more taxing when Jurickson jerks one out, and Cole works the kinks out in this neck. #Yankees #Rangers
  • Arizona continues its protracted protest against causing any offense on the field, and the Brew Crew is the latest beneficiary. #Brewers #Diamondbacks
  • Boston continues to steam merrily along with the wind in its Sale, with a routine win over the run-of-the-mill Rays. #RedSox #Rays
  • Is Matt Harvey working on a resurrection with of all teams the Reds; sure looked like that today against the Pirates. #Pirates #Reds
  • Another hiccup for the wheezing Mets, who need to call up some fresh fish to deal with the mighty Marlins. #Marlins #Mets
  • Cleveland gets some payback, as they go into Wrigley and put up a 10-spot on the flat footed Cubs. #Indians #Cubs

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Surprisingly scrappy Rockets recover from morbid first and third quarters to give the self-assured Dubs some serious electro shock therapy. It looks like they found a formula that worked, including in-you-face defense, getting to the line, and working hard (even smiling) while Draymond and the rest of the cry baby Warriors whine. Go get’m Rockets! #Rockets #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Another moment of truth looms for the Celtics, as Cleveland holds up their end with a workmanlike, grind-it-out win on their own floor. After getting blown up in yet another pathetic 1st quarter, Boston hung around (sort of), while LeBrontosaurus picked off the low hanging fruit and fed his teammates whenever possible. Now the scene shifts back to the garden, where meals haven’t been so plentiful for the Cavaliers. Boston hopes its fragile psyche is suitably propped up; lord knows tonight’s showing was not that of a conference champ (barely 40% shooting and getting thrashed on the boards, in blocks and in terms of losing the battle for loose balls). #Celtics #Cavaliers
  • I agree with the ref — this is painful to watch…

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • Miracle of miracles as the Caps finally come through at home; Oshie orchestrates much of the offense, while Holtby puts a halt to Lightning levity and Smith-Pelly puts more than a few Tampa tourists on their butts and bellies. The question is … do you have the cojones to leave well enough alone, or will you get sucked in to putting your faith in Washington on the road in Game 7? #Capitals #Lightning

MLB Update:

  • Goldy’s batting average is falling faster than Billy Halleck’s weight in Stephen King’s “Thinner”, and somebody needs to get that gypsy to take off the curse real fast, as the Janitors’ spot atop the NL West has ceased to last. #Diamondbacks #Brewers
  • Dodgers can’t manage the collection plate to dredge up nearly enough run support to save Buehler. #Rockies #Dodgers
  • Yanks make a wreck of Tex pitching as Torres really tears into Colon. #Yankees #Rangers
  • Soto and Nats recover their mojo against the paltry Padres, who see their minor winning streak vanish like a fart in the wind. #Padres #Nationals
  • KC gets shown up in this Show Me State confrontation. #Royals #Cardinals
  • No need for the Mets to fret … they’re playing the darlin Marlins. #Marlns #Mets

MLB Update:

  • Rockies’ ERA continues to be rotten, which is leading to Giant, and perhaps misplaced, expectations in San Francisco. #Giants #Rockies
  • Poor Pirate relief pitcher Vazquez came in to put out the fire, but just threw gasoline on the Buccos funeral pyre, not holy water. #Padres #Pirates
  • Are the Dodgers no longer dogging it? Sweep of the Natties is certainly an encouraging sign. #Dodgers #Nationals
  • Oakland’s record continues to be on the mend, with lots of help today from Mengden. #Athletics #BlueJays
  • Hess makes quite a mess of things in a filthy fifth, while the O’s have enormous clean up difficulties of their own, leaving lots on base in excessively frustrating shutout loss. #Orioles #RedSox

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Rockets never got out of their booster chairs for this debacle at The Oracle, standing around while GSW controlled the boards, drained threes and took advantage of their accidents (20 turnovers shows a real lack of attention to detail and poor coordination). Time to cry for mommy because Sweet Baby James is not going to bail you out of this one by himself, and Paul is too short. #Warriors #Rockets

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • This just in … Winnipegans get the day off tomorrow as a bereavement holiday, after the hopes and dreams of their whiteout crowd get thoroughly erased by a touch too much from Tuch and a firm forearm flip from rippling Reaves. Meanwhile, Las Vegans continue to build an expansion mansion to house a Stanley Cup that is about to come to rest in Sin City. #GoldenKnights #Jets

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Cavs have no problem dwarfing Celts on the scoreboard, as this game proves once again that you snooze, you lose.  Shoddy defense and more than a spree of off-target threes by Boston, along the comforts of home mean this game was definitely a cure for insomnia, no matter who you were rooting for. #Cavaliers #Celtics

MLB Update:

  • Chalk up this Cubs’ loss to a hard to stomach walkoff walk by light hitting Billy Ray Hamilton/Capricorn. #Cubs #Reds
  • Danny Duffy serves up more than a few spaceballs in a real laugher at Kauffmann. #Yankees #Royals
  • Kluber remains a pillar of strength for the much maligned Indians’ pitching rotation, as Cleveland slips by the Astros. #Indians #Astros
  • Liberty Bell boys continue to throw a monkey wrench into the status quo of the NL East by ringing up another clutch victory over St. Louis. #Phillies #Cardinals
  • A’s come from behind with a big bop from Binder. #Athletics #BlueJays
  • Return to normalcy as Rick’s Red Sox reduce Oriole pie-in-the-sky optimism to rubble. #Orioles #RedSox
