Ballcap Bet

For the Greater Glory of Baseball

Well, well, well

So the tables have turned and it looks like the one team I thought would have been eliminated in the wild card is my only salvation. That team is the Kansas City Fucking Royals.

I will root and cheer and scream and cry, but by god, they’re my fucking team. This bet is great because even if your home team is not in the playoffs, you’ve got your teams and by now, team. That fucking team, again, let me repeat, that fucking team is the Kansas City Fucking Royals.

Fear, terror , dread. Halloween is right around the corner but I’m talking about the World Series here. I mean think about it. Think back to the beginning of the season. Would you have said, “Oh, yeah, for sure KC vs SF for the WS.”?  I sure as shit didn’t, but I haven’t seen Boston around for a while either, so prove me wrong you baby blue bastards.

Either way we’ve had a stellar competition so far, bets were made in a timely fashion and not once has violence been threatened upon anyone. Kudos! For me, middle of the road seems to be the most comfortable position, but I want more. I’m an American damn it!

Klueh and Heydinger are in prime positions but I think the real race to watch will be Benanav/Piman as we wait and watch to see who will be crowned with our most coveted award.

Good luck gentlemen, it’s been a pleasure

Verlander, Scherzer, and Price

These are the saddest of possible words:
"Verlander, Scherzer, and Price"
A trio of bear cubs, beaten by birds,
"Verlander, Scherzer, and Price"
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Letting those Orioles pile on the doubles—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
"Verlander, Scherzer, and Price."

[Baseball’s Sad Lexicon, Franklin Pierce Adams]
