Good a.m. Thanks to a slow start following last night’s (dare I call it) raucous Boy Meets World Quizzo at Drinker's, we’re going to let reader Dave write today’s lede, which, of course, is a Major League reference: 

“We won a game yesterday, if we win one today that's two in a row. If we win one tomorrow, that's called a winning streak.”

The Phillies won last night, 6-1. It was their second win in a row. If they win another– winning streak.

Let’s start straightaway by calling out Jim Thome’s ridiculous six game stretch:

He is 11 of his last 24, with two doubles, three home runs, 13 RBIs, and, over that stretch, he leads the Majors in really old guys being happy just to be alive. For realstons. He’s playing the game like an old dog that was just given one of those wheelie things to drag around his now useless hind legs:

Aww. See how happy Jim is? He’s just a good boy! 

Keep mashing, Gentleman Jim. Keep mashing. 

Reader (@CDew27_1J8) noticed that home plate umpire Manny Gonzalez (is that… Russian?) may or may not have pissed himself:

Domonic Brown re-injured his left knee strain.

Finally, congrats to last night's quizzo winner The Exits. Crazy turnout. Something like 30 teams and well over 100 people:

  1. I’ll bet the walked away with a ton of pussy last night
    – admitting you stay in everyday to watch ABC family and jerkoff to a 12 year old topanga (or the shittier savage brother) is great times

  2. Remember that dude Beez Nutz
    Remember he told you all that Thome would fix this lineup
    Beez was awesome

  3. Gross dissed Thome after Thome’s home run, looked like he couldn’t be bothered talking hitting with him on the bench.

  4. Thats the same kid who wins every week on the left sans girlfriend. Looks like he came outta the closet.
