Yadier Molina gets his money’s worth…

After a grueling series at Miller Park this weekend, the Brewers ended up taking 3-4 from the Cardinals. A flurry (slowing sometimes to a drizzle – is that to mix my metaphors?) of text messages were exchanged between Bro Taguchi and Griff this weekend. A few highlights:

Griff: Try not to be too hard on my Crew tonite. They’re hurtin’ bad.
Gooch: Ok. Just keep the brats comin.

Griff: I am about to launch a jihad on the Brewer pitching staff.
Gooch: There are no beheadings in baseball…

Gooch: Are the crew wearing the old unis from the 80s? I love those. Never shoulda got rid of em. An A+ logo too with the mb glove.

Gooch: Fyi the baseball game is on the fox sports spanish channel if you get directv. Channel 616. Heh.
Griff: Viva los brewers! Como se dice bratwurst en espanol?
Gooch: Bratwurst.

Gooch: The cubs are back in 1st.
Griff: Our lame-ass pitcher just got a two-bagger off of your homeboys. Cubs suck. And I hate Carlos Zambrano.
Gooch: Hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate…[you get the idea]

All in all, we were pretty congenial, especially given that Ryan Braun went deep twice in two games (for a total of 4 dingers, if you can’t do math). But the series highlight has to go to Yadier Molina, who – after getting tossed by home plate umpire Paul Schrieber – proceeded to strip down and leave all his equipment in front of Schrieber at home plate. LaRussa gets run as well, but as Bob Uecker noted, that’s “no big surprise.” (Uecker went on to express disappointment that Molina didn’t keep on going with his strip show. Not sure what to make of that.) You can watch the video here.

It’s going to be an interesting season…

About Pastafari Griff

Pastafari Griff, Queen of Truthiness, is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and is also a theist of a..."different" sort. Her version of ID theory concludes that it is possible that the FSM created the world (which at that time consisted of trees, mountains, and a midget) with his noodly appendage. While definitely NOT a burrito connoisseur, she does enjoy rocking out fried chicken and swine (not necessarily at the same time) on a regular basis. She IS, however, a PBR connoisseur, and for some reason claims that 'PBR' can be used as a verb, which should be performed "ASAP". She, too, is a fan of the Wendy's #6, though she opposes the addition of pepperjack to it (pace Spanky). P-Griff (as she is also known) strongly dislikes many Republican politicians, especially those who use Xianity as a justification for foreign and domestic policy. Of course, she knows for a fact that God is, indeed, on HER side, so it must be the case that everything she says is right. Her mood hinges upon the combined performance of the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Green Bay Packers, and the Milwaukee Brewers. Needless to say, she's a surly bastard much of the time. She legitimately hates the Yankees, but supports the Germans in national soccer. (No, there really isn't any logical connection between those two clauses.) She also still loves Brett Favre, and she hopes the "nice farm" the Packers sent him to is taking good care of him. P-Griff is obsessed with LOST, 24, The Daily Show, and the Colbert Report...in no particular order. She wants to do it with Sawyer, be rescued by and then do it with Jack Bauer, and have babies with both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert...in no particular order. Of course, since the latter two fantasies are highly unlikely - and impossible to perform at the same time - she'd be happy just to hang with the dudes. P-Griff also enjoys her vices, which are too many to list here. Despite all that, she is a born-again virgin who enjoys listening to Sandi Patti, Nine Inch Nails, and Europop. _ "[She's] a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction, taking every wrong direction on [her] lonely way back home." Additionally, P-Griff is of the opinion that "there's still a lot of wine and lonely girls in this best of all possible worlds." (Thanks Kris and Gottfried!) _ Let us all raise up our hands skyward (in the direction of the immaterial Flying Spaghetti Monster in all his noodly glory) and say boldly... "RA-MEN!!!"
