  1. last night we had roastS. yes had to add an S, because takes two of them to feed this house. i’m gonna need a raise just to afford groceries with two teenage boys in the house.
  2. clear cut almost impossible to deny? 1 this is basically an ad for that car lot, which is illlegal. yeah most will mention the car in pic, but it doesn’t say he bought THAT car. he may have bought an ‘84 Tempo
  3. did not make the All a star squad. not the first time he’s tried and not been picked. But this is the first time i’m absolutely PISSED about it though. whoever scored him is apparently semi-retarded. he got a higher score for arm strength (not his strong suit at all) than he did for throwing accuracy and batting timing. mom fact his timing at the plate got the lowest score. even though the 3 pitches he saw, lined one up the middle and fouled other two straight back. but thats not why im upset. of the 15 players chosen, i know of 3 that no doubt not even close are not on Kaleb’s level. Period. and 1 other i’ve only seen play a couple times and ain’t that good either. my gut is telling me they wasn’t picking the shortest kid at tryouts. even if he is better than the kids that “look” the part.
  4. not quite able to re-kindle what we had last game. played well. fought extremely hard. lost 4-3 in extras. finished 3rd overall. was up 3-2 goin into bottom of the 5th. time had already passed during top of the 4th. they tied it up with a walk followed by a triple. with 2 outs and game tied, they got a single up the middle to beat us. season over. find out tomorrow if short kid made all stars or bot.
  5. Todd Walker and Eddy Furnish’s need to at the very least be mentioned in the baseball group.
  6. i’m not normally a fan of rubbing it in to see kids cry. but THAT team runs they mouths. a lot. they carry themselves as if they invented the game. and they talk down to our kids like we’re beneath them and the heavenly ground they walk on. and we just beat them. soundly. to end their beat season ever. this was their year to win a title. now all offseason long, they have to live with the fact that lowly us just dominated them when it mattered most. a ragtag group of undersized, inexperienced, kids who are noticeably out-talented by every team they face. but at the end of this game, our kids were filthy. caked in dirt. drenched in sweat. looked like they just drove through hell and back. but SMILING ear to ear. those kids were still mostly clean with their fancy uniforms. but crying at a season that ended too soon (in their eyes). i don’t know if we can recapture that magic in the next round, but this one game made a season full of struggles worth it all.
  7. to expound a little. this team beat us. BAD. twice already. like 15-2 and 15-1. they have literally never had an inning against us where they didn’t score their 5 runs allowed by rule. and these are kids that go to school with our boys. so the smack talk tends to get personal. And they are by far the most vocal, arrogant, cocky team we’ve played all year. talent wise, it’s not close. lot of travel and high school players on their team. zero of those on ours. we led the entire way (minus being tied for couple batters in the 3rd). before long, we was in their heads. they started making uncharacteristic mistakes. bickering with each other and blaming each other for what was happening. top 4th, we up two and coming to bat. Score 3 and it means they can force at least one more inning. score 4 and we win (we’d be up 6 and rules allow a max of 5 per inning). we push a couple across. short kid gets picked at 3rd. two outs. best player then steals 3, and a bad throw gives him home. we’re one run from winning this thing. fastest kid walks. i’m coaching first and tell him “you score, we win” with a dead serious straight face says “ok, we win” i tell him “get you a good lead” says “i don’t need one” then steals 2nd on next pitch. following pitch he easily takes 3rd. batter gets himself in the hole 1-2. next pitch is in the dirt and off the catcher. runner breaks. CLOOOOOOOOSE play at the plate. “safe! ball game!” only our 2nd win all season and our kids erupted out of the dugout. 12-6 win over a team that has absolutely owned us all year. post game handshakes, other team had obvious tears in their eyes. and you couldn’t wipe the smiles off our kids faces. we live to fight another day. and the enemy is vanquished. their season is done. no title for them in their best season ever. and they have to go to school and face the music tomorrow. they just got whipped by the last place team.
  8. HO. LEE. CRAP! post season tourney started yesterday. and of course we’re the bottom seed. and beat the hell out of the 3 seed!!!
  9. oh, forgot to mention, he gave up his first dinger game before last. throwing in relief, wasn’t getting an calls low in the zone, so he tried to elevate one. it stayed flat and fat. kid tattooed it. he told me after the game he knew he hung it. said “i was praying he missed it, because that one never moved and just floated to him” to which i responded “welp, it wasn’t floating on the way out “
  10. the midget showed up last night! lost a tough one 14-11 in one hell of a game. was very entertaining and pretty evenly matched. against a team from next town over. all of these kids go to school together and know each other very well. short kid made a great play with his glove early. diving up middle, bounced up and gunned him at 1st. chased down a runner that our pitcher picked at 2b. went 2-3 at the plate with two solid knocks (first hits of season). Pitches the final inning needing to hold them to 2 runs or fewer. a walk and an error got men on base. both scored on another error. but he got us out of it with a chance to tie it up in bottom half. bases juiced, down 2 with 2 outs. and the midget comes up to the plate. i could tell by his face and body language that he was locked in, ready, and wanted THIS moment. against THIS team. he squared it up and smoked it. lined it right at the 2B for out #3. Ball Game. i literally had to scoop him up off the ground and hold him up for a moment and walk him to the lineup for postgame handshakes. even after the shakes and quick team meeting, he was crushed. i don’t know if i ever saw him that devastated after any game before.
  11. brutal season continues. kids that have been banged up already are getting more banged up. and we can’t buy a win. a kid that missed first few weeks of season due to concussionS got drilled in the knee-cap with a pitch yesterday. left te thread marks from the ball. he finished the game though. short kid got smoked in the shin on a throw down to 2nd, and plowed by the kid stealing 2B on same play. was slow to get up and hobbled a bit. got a nice purple knot where ball tagged him. and that was on his “good” ankle. his left ankle has been officially diagnosed as tendinitis of the achilles. and probably isn’t going away until sometime during the off season. happened in practice few days before first game and hasn’t gotten any better. his right ankle has now been jammed sliding into a catcher, tagged by a ball (twice), and rolled by a baserunner. battling through it and fighting like hell. by currently sporting a .000 batting average. can’t get any pop because thanks to two bum ankles, he’s almost all arm swing with little to no power coming from his legs. and he ain’t beating out a grounder in the infield this year. ERA ain’t great either. not much heat on his 4 seamer. His two seamer still bites down, but he’s struggled to keep it out of the dirt. he hasn’t gotten as many innings as he’d like, because of his legs though. couple games with the bad right ankle (his push off leg) kept him off the mound completely. and while he won’t admit it, his left ankle (landing ankle) is messing with his follow through and affecting his pitching. 3 games left in the season. all this week. hope he can hold himself together long enough to finish, the. a well deserved break to try to heal up.
  12. really weak. eapecially considering my guy did more in one year than all of yours have combined.
  13. ROUGH season so far. Short Kid making a lot of contact, but hasn’t gotten a baseknock yet. already has 4 strikeouts (doubling his total from last year). team is the walking wounded too. have 4 kids that have missed time due to injuries. 2 of which has missed multiple games. Weve had concussions, broken bones, twists, sprains, etc. Short Kid has been beat to hell and back. Elbow problem early limited his pitching (medically cleared now) Left ankle has been hobbling him since pre-season practice. Woke up this morning (played 3 games this weekend) with some swelling and hurting worse than has all year. going to Dr. today to get it checked. He was soldiering through it all year. He wasn’t looking full speed, but didn’t really have a limp. Just didn’t have the explosion on his first step, or the top end he normally has. Had to leave a game early a couple weeks ago due to jamming up his other ankle sliding into the catcher while trying to score (he was out).
  14. and if we grading past man-crushes, you will never live up to my original crush that started all this.
