“If you say our team is going to lose, get away from me!” Johno exclaims to Jimbo after he called the Blues game 6 loss to the Sharks. “I am a lifelong Blues fan” Jimbo rebuts, “but, I call it as I see it, and I thought the Sharks were going to beat the Blues in Game 6.”
“All I’m saying,” explains Johno “is that I don’t want to go to the ballpark with someone who says our team is going to lose.”
“Oh, so you want everything sugar coated?” asks Jimbo. “That’s the problem with people these days. They need everything sugar coated. Nobody can handle the truth anymore.”
“You’re a jinx, Jimbo!” Johno exclaims. “You keep saying we are going to lose. Of course we are going to lose if you put a damn curse on us.”
“I think the fans need an update on my fantasy team,” says Jimbo. “Oh my god, I’m winning 6-4!”
“Lets go to the AL West . This Texas team is absolutely killing it,” exclaims Jimbo .
“And how about Robbie Cano?” asks Johno. “He is absolutely killing the ball right now. He already has 14 homeruns this season. If this were last season, he wouldn’t have had 14 by August!”
“And guess who has him on his fantasy team?” asks Jimbo. “Me!”
Now in the NL, Jimbo has some strong feelings. “I can’t stand to see how bad Houston is anymore. I have to stop watching the NL West because I just can’t handle it anymore.”
“I think Matt Harvey is hurt,” claims Johno.
“But the craziest thing is the velocity is still there, which makes me less inclined to believe that he’s hurt,” counters Jimbo.
“Heading to the NL Central, with the Cubbies still leading the way, but with the Pirates playing some great baseball right now,” observes Jimbo.
“Here’s an interesting fact,” says Jimbo. “Arrieta is 48-4, in his career, when he has 4 or more runs of support.”
“How about the NL West huh? The Giants are for real over there,” claims Jimbo.
Jimbo then laments, “Replay is ruining sports!”
“Here’s a crazy fact for you, Jimbo,” says Johno “If Bobby Bonilla [had not pulled] a hamstring at the end of [his] spring training, we may have never heard of Albert Pujols. Tony La Russa was dead set on Bobby, and although Pujols had a great spring training, he was still going to get sent back down. But, the last day of spring training, Bobby pulls a hammy and La Russa is forced to pull up Pujols.”
