The players are feasting like monsters at the dish as the game intensity rises. They’re taking huge helpings of Ribeyes with every swing of the bat. Take Ronnie Belliard for instance. First inning, bases loaded… Grand Salami and 4 huge Ribeyes in a single trip to the dish.
Follow that with Jason Giambi’s lone appearance at the dish and a smashing 3 Ribeye helping on a Pinch Hit Tater to right field. What a Giambi Monster he is becoming. He even broke out the old school Bash Brothers forearm smash.
The Rockies used those two Monster helpings to gain an all important game on the Giants.
Talk about feasting on one dish.. Ross Gload is the all time Glob Monster. He has 19 Pinch Hits and 15 PH RBIs this season! Both Florida Marlins records. Gload… Gload… Gload. His PH bomb yesterday gave him 2 Ribs and kept the Marlins at 4 back of Giambi Monster’s Rocks.
Staying as close as possible, the Braves won their 8th of the last 10 to keep within 4 1/2 in the Wild Card. Adam LaRoche nearly had himself a Vin Scully line to lead the Braves attack. His 2-2 day netted a couple of Ribs and one helping each of a run and a walk. Way to go Adam.
Want to talk about some real hogs at the dish? How about the 4 thru 7 hitters for the Chicago White Sox? Awfully hungry fellas trying to keep the blinded Tigers in their sights. Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez, Jermaine Dye and Carlos Quentin were a collective 8 for 14 with 8 runs and 10 huge Ribbys. Come on guys… share! Gload…. Gload… Gload!
Kurt Suzuki and James Loney both had nearly identical games. Suzuki – 3 for 4, 3 Runs, HR and 1 RBI. He just missed hitting for the cycle. Loney – 3 for 4, 3 Runs HR and 2 RBIs. James finally hit his first HR at Dodger Stadium this season… get that Tater! Good Job guys but no fruit cup for you.
In a pretty meaningless game in St. Louis a small monster got tiny portions a little at a time and filled up his dessert dish with a Game Winner!
Brendan Ryan. His bouncing homer in the 5th made it 1-0 and looked like it was enough to win it. But, the Cubs bounced back with a single digit of their own to tie the game. Then, in a house where Monster Mac used to feast… Brendan Ryan took one more small helping and walked off with the dish!
Great game Ryan, but you just can’t compete with the monsters that were on the West Coast on Saturday. In a game that featured Godzilla and Ichiro Monster it was Tyrannosaurus Tex that chewed up and spit out Safeco Field.
Mark Teixeira just pummeled Mariner pitching, collecting 5 monstrous Ribs and 2 Big Taters to fill his 4 for 5 plate. Talk about a Monster. Tyrannosaurus Tex feasted from both sides of the dish for his Taters. Gload Gload Gload! He fell a double shy of riding the cycle. Talk about a funny sight… Tyrannosaurus Tex on a bike!
Congratulations Mark Teixeira. You’re Yesterday’s Hitter!
