Record: 23-34. Pace: 65-97. Change on 2013/2010/2004: -9/+1/+1

Turambar and EdBiggHead.  UNITE!!!


Past them trees..........

Beer 1 (Turambar) Morning Buzz Coffee Stout

Beer 1 (EdBiggHead) Hop Therapy IPA

  • (EdBiggHead) So my Hop Therapy is very good however, it is served in a child's glass. I expect my liquid hops to be served in the skulls of my enemies. With an umbrella and  twirly straw.
  • (Turambar) My Morning Buzz is served in a large German style mug, like a boss.
  • Arroyo against his former club; one easy out and one easy hit.  A double play cleans up the mess.
  • (EddBiggHead) Thought. I wish the two young gentlemen next to us would stop discussing pre-history tribal geo-politics. The beer fridge behind Patrick and of course the game on T.V is a great distraction to this nonsense.
  • Pollack, such a badass.  So much win.
  • EdBiggHead's clone is sitting behind homeplate.  The resemblance is uncanny.
  • Not the best kind of RBI from Goldy, but I'll take:  1-0
  • Well, this is an unpleasant turn of events.  House of the Rising Sun playing and the bases are loaded with no outs.  Nice.
  • Grand Slam.  All good feelings gone now. 1-4

Beer 2 (EdBiggHead): Papago Park Pale Ale

Beer 2 (Turambar):  Easy Jack Session IPA


  • Monte again, with a not so good throw.....
  • EdBiggHead "Oh I'm afraid my appetite will be fully operational when our Pizza arrives."
  • Top of the 3rd and we're already dreading Cahill may come in.  Thankfully the double play saves us from that fate.
  • Cahill looks like Vader in Return of the Jedi after the helmet comes off. Also. Pizza is awesome, all the meat.
  • Phillips with the impressive bare hand one hopper. Whatever bro.  I remember my first one handed catch.
  • Parra comes through with a nice RBI single.  I guess having Pollack as the lead off is indeed a good thing. 2-4
  • Lord Goldschmidt  "Just throw the ball away.  I'll spare your lives if you just throw the ball away." 3-4


Beer 3 (EdBiggHead):  Torpedo IPA

Beer 3 (Turambar) G'knight Imperial Red

  • Well, after a grand slam we somehow have a game again.  3 up and 3 down in the top of the 4th.
  • Jerry has joined the fun, he of the Greatful Dead.  Good times.
  • (EddBigHead) The upright cooler of Spatten Optimator behind Turambar looks very, very tempting.
  • Bottom of the 5th and we just might not get a run despite a lead off double......Yup
  • Can we hit it past the infield soon? Also, next beer......
  • Arroyo still very hittable:  deep double to center:  3-5

Beer 4 (EdBiggHead):  Easy Jack.  basically I was told that this is what I am ordering. Usually I do the telling. But to spare blood, and since I am a guest. Compliance.

Beer 4 (Turambar): Easy Jack. Death.

  • God Emperor Goldy with a nice hit up the middle:  He must like Easy Jack.
  • Fake tag on Goldy's ass on the walk to Prado. Next play....where is Goldy's ass?
  • Men on the corners and two outs:  the beers are flowing and a challenge has just been made.
  • Very very very very close call.  EdBiggHead is convinced Inciarte is safe, as am I.  Umps see otherwise

Beer 5 (EdBiggHead):  G'Knight

Beer 5 (Turambar): Wipa Snapa White IPA


  • Madness has taken hold.
  • We just finished a 15 min long argument over how many minor league stolen bases Billy Hamilton had.
  • Bottom of the 7th it' 4-5.  We'll need more beer soon.
  • Marshall (frustrated at what happened Tuesday), crushes his enemies, sees them driven before him and hears the lamentations of their women.
  • Speaking of more beer. We has it. Patrick's Wipa Snapa is a light IPA from Eurasia and just so happened to not Annex the Crimea.
  • EdBiggHead before getting another beer "I gotta go make a sissy tinkle."

Beer 6  (EdBiggHead):  Mongo

Beer 6 (Turambar):  Mongo


  • This next beer is actually a huge bottle of beer that we are sharing. The waitress attemted to take away my empty pint glass and was greeted with a frown. She insisted on bring us "fresh glasses". I did not know that this place was so classy. I feel like I am at Donovan's Steak House, bro.
  • Marshall ends peoples lives........and then that HR happened.  I blame EdBiggHead
  • Our two party table now has a total of five. Patrick, Ed, Jerry a Guy who looks like the scientist from Jaws and his buddy who looks like Bob from Bob's Burgers. Noooooo. Nooooooo. We go in. We kill them. Killllllllll them.
  • Fantasy cam on the closer for the Reds...."Past them treeeeeeeees" (Predator)
  • game over.......
