And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

Aug 23, 2011, 5:56 AM EDT

New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies Getty Images

Phillies 10, Mets 0: Actual conversation that took place between a Mets fan I randomly met and I yesterday: the two of us trying to pinpoint exactly when the season ended for New York. Think hard about it: there are so many possible instances you can point to and say “There! Right there! That’s when it was clear that things were effectively over for the Mets.”

Mariners 3, Indians 2: Tribe closer Chris Perez comes into a tie game in the ninth, hits a dude, hits another dude, and then throws the ball away on a sacrifice attempt. I guess the error ended up not mattering — the g0-ahead run scored on a sac fly that would have plated the run even if the bunter was out at first on the previous play — but it added spice. The sweep by the Tigers was bad, but one gets the sense that we’re seeing the Indians’ season sort of ending before our eyes.

Brewers 8, Pirates 1, Pirates 9, Brewers 2: In the first game Chris Narveson allowed no runs in five and a third and drove in two for himself. I’m kind of a stats moron, but when I see something like that I feel like making up — with a totally straight face — some baloney metric about NL pitcher run differential or something and see if I can get anyone to run with it. Game two: Zack Greinke was rocked, allowing seven runs on seven hits. (and not driving in any, making his NLPRD a negative 7).

Nationals 4, Diamondbacks 1: The Diamondbacks keep skidding out of control. They’ve scored seven runs in six games. Damn shame someone has to represent the NL West in the playoffs. Not that there’s anyone else that we can allow in in their place, what with there only being three good NL teams this year apparently.

Tigers 5, Rays 2: You’ll be shocked to learn that the Tigers won a Justin Verlander start (7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 8K). Jhonny Peralta drove in two. He’s having the quietest .315/.361/.512 season for a shortstop in recent memory.

Orioles 4, Twins 1: J.J. Hardy — former Twin — hit a homer. It inspired Gleeman to make the following observation during last night’s game:

J.J. Hardy has 24 homers in 383 at-bats. Twins’ entire infield, including anyone to play 1B, 2B, SS, or 3B, has 37 homers in 2,320 at-bats.

But no, the Twins had no use for the guy at all.

Braves 3, Cubs 0: Jair Jurrjens had been beaten up in four of his last five starts, so he needed this. Jose Constanza went 2 for 3 and scored a run and … left with an ankle injury. Even if you’re in the “he’s gonna turn into a pumpkin soon” camp, losing him for any amount of time wouldn’t be good because, you know, he still hasn’t turned into a pumpkin. Seems minor, though.

Rockies 9, Astros 5: The Astros had baserunners all night — they had 11 hits off starter Jhoulys Chacin — but couldn’t do much of anything with them. The Rockies got an early 6-0 lead off Brett Myers who, in hindsight, probably didn’t deserve that contract extension he received last year.

Dodgers 2, Cardinals 1: St. Louis took a 1-0 lead into the ninth. After starter Chris Carpenter — who had shut L.A. out for eight innings — hit the first batter he faced in the ninth, La Russa did the “let’s use three pitchers to face three batters thing.” Arthur Rhodes struck out Andre Ethier, but then Fernando Salas surrendered a triple to Aaron Miles, he got yanked, and then Jason Motte induced a grounder that Rafael Furcal bobbled, allowing the go-ahead run to score.

Rangers 4, Red Sox 0: C.J. Wilson and the trio of Uehara, Adams and Feliz shut out Boston. A three-run homer for Mike Napoli was the big blast.

  1. The Baseball Idiot - Aug 23, 2011 at 6:42 AM

    As much as an anti-LaRussa hater as I am, and as much as I want the Cardinals in the playoffs, I have to admit that I enjoy when LaRussa’s reliever fetish backfires on him.

    If a pitcher isn’t good enough to face more than one batter at a time, he doesn’t belong in the big leagues.

    LaRussa is also the reason the rosters will never be expanded. As much as he would a scrappy middle-infielder, we all know he would just go with another pitcher.

    Somewhere, Terry Forster sits by the phone waiting on the call.

    • paperlions - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:13 AM

      …and LaRussa compounded his micro-managing mistakes by bringing in Furcal (who has a giant bandage at the base of the thumb on his throwing hand as a “defensive replacement”….yeah, that’s a great idea, let’s bring in a 1-handed SS as a defensive replacement for the 9th. This game is a perfect example of how LaRussa turns wins into losses by micro-managing….he is responsible for many more loses each year than he is wins…in fact, his inability to co-exist in a constructive manner with a talented CF has already lead to more losses for each of the next 3 years than the Cardinals would have had.

      • paperlions - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:36 AM

        Oh, and if people didn’t know, the winning run scored on a GB hit to Furcal, who bobbled it, still had time to throw to home, but did so wildly. It was generously scored a fielders choice, but it was all kinds of fail (i.e. fielding error).

    • paperlions - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:26 AM

      …and if you are bringing in a lefty (again, no need to bring in anyone, Carpenter had thrown 99 pitches and no one in the bullpen has better stuff), why in the world are you bringing in Rhodes (who is old and sucks) instead of Scrabble (who is not old and does not suck)?

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 12:26 PM

        You mean Arthur? Arthur Rhodes? That guy’s still pitching huh? Back in 06 I thought he was done.

      • FC - Aug 23, 2011 at 2:15 PM

        To be fair Rhodes DID K the guy

      • paperlions - Aug 23, 2011 at 2:42 PM

        yeah, but if you pinch hit Theriot for Pujols (which is the equivalent of replacing Carpenter with Rhodes) and Theriot homers….that doesn’t mean it was a good move.

  2. ditto65 - Aug 23, 2011 at 6:46 AM

    I’m a little upset that Charlie pulled Lee. The game was clearly Lee’s to win.

  3. phillyphever - Aug 23, 2011 at 6:46 AM

    Say Craig, any chance you know who ran off the field last night after seeing a big bug? Saw something about that this morning, but can’t find out who it is.

    • Craig Calcaterra - Aug 23, 2011 at 6:56 AM

      Matt Holliday. It was a moth. Flew into his ear and had to be extracted with some instrument. Ick. I’ll have a post up about it in a little while.

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:42 AM

        That sounded pretty disgusting. Sounds like Holliday is having a pretty unlucky year, between the appendectomy, leg injury, and some other various illnesses…now a moth flies into his ear? Bleh

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:12 AM

        I thought at first he was being a honeyskirter like Logan Morrison and the Mantis, but this sounds like some serious stuff, I now picture Wrath of Khan ear worms…

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:15 AM

        KHAN!!!! KHAN!!!!!! Now I have to pull out the dvd’s tonight because I’ll be thinking about it all day today. Best movie of the entire series…Star Trek 2…the wrath of Khan. Those worm things were just insane. I loved how Khan pulls the babies out of the backs of the bigger ones too…then just throws them into the helmets and puts the helmets on Chechov and that Captain(who was actually the police captain in Terminator too if you remember)…that part was just insane.

      • Old Gator - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:04 AM

        Chris: first, your taste in Star Trek films is exquisite. Yes, Wrath of Khan was easily the 2011 Feelies rotation of the Star Trek series. Roddenberry, Sowards, Bennet and Peeples had more fun than should be permissible with an IBM Selectric typewriter on that script – most of all Rodenberry, who I believe was the one who came up with the idea for the Moby-Dick subtext.

        Now, interesting fact about those “earwigs:” they are based on the design of the so-called “doodlebug” or “ant lion;” if you’re as big a fan of those things as I am, here’s your link to your pinup poster:

        http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d9/Scott_Robinson_-_Ant_Lion_(by).jpg&imgrefurl=http://apatani-language-society.com/II.php&h=855&w=1068&sz=617&tbnid=8H7zpRsqPm8nnM:&tbnh=101&tbnw=126&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dant%2Blion%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=ant+lion&docid=R7TStj2NYN_JUM&sa=X&ei=Z7JTTs6vC8a4twflvP3VBQ&ved=0CDUQ9QEwBA&dur=7135

        More fun facts: doodlebugs dig little cones in the sand and bury themselves at the bottom of the cone, waiting for ants to enter the mouth of the cone and slide down into those pincers. I read somewhere once that as a kid, Roddenberry used to lie on the ground near doodlebug cones with a magnifying glass for a better view and push ants or beetles into them to watch the fun at the bottom. I did the same thing. My parents saw me doing that and I received psychiatric intervention before I started trying to push puppies in there, but I don’t know if they got to Roddenberry in time.

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:12 AM

        Gator, I did the exact same thing as a child. We called them “ant lions”. I even would go as far as collecting 2 big ones and put them in the same spot for a royal rumble of sorts.. They were fierce competitors those ant lions were…. Anyway I never pulled the magnifying glass on them, that was reserved for lesser insects…

      • FC - Aug 23, 2011 at 2:24 PM

        Are we sure it’s not a Ceti Alpha Eel?

      • FC - Aug 23, 2011 at 2:26 PM

        And yes, I put that in because “Khan Ear Worms” does not do the slug any justice.

  4. sdelmonte - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:01 AM

    The Mets season ended when Murphy and Reyes got hurt the same night. Yeah, their chances of the playoffs were gone before that. But up to that point, there was enough offense to make the team respectable and .500 a likely ending.

  5. phillyphreak - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:16 AM

    The Mets season ended in 2007.

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:52 AM

      They actually led the division on September 10th, 2008 by 3.5 games and choked it away again…so I would say their season probably ended September 2008…but you could probably say that 2007 is what helped cause 2008 I guess. Either way, it didn’t end anytime over the last 3 years.

    • indaburg - Aug 23, 2011 at 1:59 PM

      I think Family Guy demonstrates the end of the Mets season the best: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWfbD5Z5nZs

  6. deepstblu - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:25 AM

    MLB.com has started carrying elimination (magic) numbers in their standings. The Astros’ number is already “E” for eliminated in both their division and the wild card, with more than a week left in August. Brutal.

  7. sknut - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:28 AM

    I know hindsight is 20/20 but the Twins should have traded Delmon last year when his value was at his highest and kept Hardy, even when JJ had various aliments he still played elite defense and by moving Young the Twins could have injected speed that way.

    • ThatGuy - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:17 AM

      I don’t think it’s even hindsight is 20/20. Find me a Twins fan that thought we should have traded Hardy(espiecially for a pair of A ball relievers). I sure as hell don’t know any.

  8. dianagram - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:29 AM

    Last night’s Gee/Lee contest was only the 20th time in ML history that SPs last names combined for 6 letters. (Never been a 5 or lower).

    (Yes, I researched this and wrote about it . . . cause I like that kinda’ stuff)

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:39 AM

      Phillies another offensive explosion, but Mr. Lucky has me a little worried. Since whatever happened with his hand, he is 3 for 19 and there is zero excuse for striking out twice against a right hander like Gee who doesn’t really strike anybody out and looked horrible last night to everyone not named “Mr. Lucky”. Of course, Mr. Overrated picked him up, as he has done since he got here, getting on base 4 times and scoring 4 while hitting another bomb.

      And when did the Mutts season end…September, 2008 when the Phillies finished 13-3 and choked another division title out of them after they led by 3.5 games with 16 to play.

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:03 AM

      Just curious as to how you searched for length of last name…is there somewhere out there that sorts by length of last name or did you have to extract the list and then do some type of “Len(last name)” formula in another application?

      • dianagram - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:32 AM

        Chris … I dumped the logs into excel, “convert text to columns”, corrected for those with multipart last names (ex “de la Rosa”), then did LEN(lastname).

    • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:18 AM

      I must have said Gee and Lee 20 times last night in different sentences, “Gee that was Lee who scored a run there and Gee looks kinda upset.” Sad.. So that’s still 10 times less than I said Duda. I can’t stop, his name is Duda.

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:10 AM

      Um, dianagram, you’ve clearly forgotten last April’s Nee vs. Pee game played in Camden Yards. Look it up.

      • dianagram - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:15 AM

        No “El Bravo” … you’ve confused that with Dr. Seuss.

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:23 AM

        “you’ve confused that with Dr. Seuss” ….why does everyone say that to me all of the time? I’m just a man, yes I am, not sure of my plan, but I do like flan…flan? Flan. Which, by the way, is total crap compared to pie.

  9. Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 7:39 AM

    Phillies another offensive explosion, but Mr. Lucky has me a little worried.

    • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:20 AM

      Gee was just about crapping his pants there pitching to Mayberry with the bases loaded. I swear he wanted to walk in a run rather than throw him anything he could hit.

      • Alex K - Aug 23, 2011 at 12:06 PM

        Actually it was Pagan crapping his pants.

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:31 AM

      Gee stunk last night, which made me a little worried about Mr Lucky because he should have killed that guy. Instead, he flailed at a couple bad pitches and didn’t look real interested. I hope his hand isn’t hurting his swing. If it is, I wish he would take a couple days off to rest it. It’s not like he needs to get to any incentives or anything. Rest it up big man if you need to…Mr. Overrated will step up in your absence.

  10. bcopus - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:06 AM

    It’s good to see the Braves back to form of the 90’s- playing well enough to get to the playoffs, but not near well enough to instill confidence in any real chance of going very far. Let’s make it 2 for 17!

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:10 AM

      Dude, you are giving your fellow Braves fans a bad name and I would hope most aren’t like you. They have the 4th best record in baseball and you are complaining? It isn’t their fault the Phillies are playing so well is it? And with their staff, they have the best chance of beating the Phillies in the playoffs. I can understand if you want to kill them for the last 16 years or whatever, but this year, the Braves have vastly over-achieved, are going to blow past their 87 1/2 win total prediction, and easily win 92-95 games. And you are complaining? Geeze.

      • kiwicricket - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:17 AM

        Steady on there Chris. I don’t think the post was as intense as you made it out to be. More a light hearted jab at his team of choice. No biggie.

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:20 AM

        I don’t know kiwi…sounds to me like he is complaining because the Braves aren’t good enough to go very far in the playoffs. For 2011, IMHO, they and the Phillies are the two teams with the best chance to make the World Series. Why wouldn’t he be confident? They are playing .600 ball for crying out loud. Light-hearted or not, it is ludicrous to say anything other than the Braves are over-achieving in a major way this year.

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:33 AM

        Overachieving? I don’t think your choice of words is correct there Chris. Last season you also described them that way because they were playing for Bobby’s last season. So I’d like to say the Braves, for 2 seasons in a row have been the second best NL team so far with the Brewers being the team on a super hot roll of epic proportions just recently. The Braves are “Very Good”, you better believe it.

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:40 AM

        I tend to put a lot of emphasis on the Vegas over/under win totals because those guys are smart and know what the hell they are doing. So when they put the over/under at 87 1/2 and the Braves are on a pace right now to win 97 games, I’d say they are overachieving. But they are also the second best team in the NL too. Doesn’t mean they aren’t overachieving. Shoot, the Phillies are on a pace to win 105 so they, too, are overachieving.

        To me, overachieving means you are playing better than you were expected to play. Underachieving is playing worse than you were expected to play. The damn Braves are overachieving and the damn Marlins are severely underachieving…thus my trashing my two win totals bets from Vegas in March. Bleh.

      • phillyphreak - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:49 AM

        Hmmm. I don’t know if I’d call it overachieving either. It’s an interesting debate but I think that the higher than “expected” win total is just due to the abysmal NL this year.

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:50 AM

        Lol!! Okay, I get it. But I was predicting the Phills to win 100 or slightly more with the Braves around 10 back. I was laughed at because it’s kind of high, but I think when comparing to NL talent, it’s predictable with the addition of Lee, plurs the hope of less injuries (2010 was a bad season for that). This was my prediction by only looking at last season’s standings and feeling there would be improvement in both clubs. I thought Uggla was going to be a force. He wasn’t, and now he has been a serious force recently so he’s making up for the rest of the season quick.

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:54 AM

        Yeah, you’re probably right about that. The NL has been pretty brutal.

        I have said all year that the Phillies, Braves and Giants have the best chance to make the World Series because of their pitching. I guess I am short-changing the Brew Crew, but I just don’t see their staff holding up in a short series. If they get the Braves in the NLDS, do they hit Hudson, Jurrgens, Hanson well enough to win? As long as Conrad isn’t playing second base, the Braves should be fine. If the Giants get past the D-Backs and win the NL West, I won’t be elated having the Phillies face Timmay, Cain, and Baumgarter the first 3 games of the NLDS either.

        But yeah, I guess when it is August 23 and you realistically have only 5 teams for the 4 playoff spots, its a pretty down year in the NL.

    • Sportsdrenched - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:32 AM

      As a Royals fan, this kind of thinking drives me crazy. I haven’t seen 17 seasons above .500 as a cognizant baseball fan, let alone playoff apperances.

    • phillyphreak - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:48 AM

      Hmmm. I don’t know if I’d call it overachieving either. It’s an interesting debate but I think that the higher than “expected” win total is just due to the abysmal NL this year.

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Aug 23, 2011 at 12:18 PM

        To add: the three best pitching teams in the NL are the three best teams in the NL. It seems all three are achieving right around the level of their preseason expectations, if you ask me. Granted the Braves had more ? marks in Spring Training, but c’mon it’s the Braves, just see comment below on decades of dominance and the reason why? Pitching! The Braves will always have a solid rotation, that’s how they roll.

        *The Brew Crew is the obvious asterisk b/c they get a spot in this discussion due to their play of late, but not nearly as much a pitching-centric squad.

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Aug 23, 2011 at 12:14 PM

      Allow me, the ever present voice of reason, to readjust everyone’s perspective. Since 1990, the Braves have been a vastly superior team compared to the shitbox Phillies and the rest of the NL East. The Braves haven’t overachieved during this period at all, they just f@cking achieve. The few years they did not achieve anything great, the Phillies slithered in.

      Now the Phillies are better on paper and in reality, but not by as much as many had perhaps thought (not me though, I saw a good Braves team from the get go).

      Now, I too enjoy the fact that the Bravos are looking 90s-ish in the sense that their pitching is so damned nasty and also sweet like pie. But, by God man, let’s keep our confidence up, shall we Braves…ahem….nation?? Craig and bcopus are being negative Nancy’s. Bcopus in the comment above and Craig all durned year long. Stay positive and thirsty, ladies and gentleman of Bravestopia.

  11. kopy - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:40 AM

    For as terrible as the Twins have been this season, they’ve provided some pretty entertaining moments. First a no hitter, then Thome’s 600th, and now last night’s catch by Ben Revere which hopefully should have its own post soon. MLB’s official Twitter account called it the best of the year, and I haven’t heard anyone disagree.

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 8:47 AM

      Just watched it…that was just a sick catch…sick. That was the best catch of the year by far.

    • missthemexpos - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:24 AM

      Nice thing about baseball is that every team has its moments over the course of 162 games. I can look back fondly about some great games/individual plays from when the Expo’s were still around, as long as I don’t hear the name Rick Monday.

  12. easports82 - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:39 AM

    Not that it matters with the North-East Coast bias around here, but kudos to Mike Carp and his 20-game hit streak that got snapped last night.

    • kopy - Aug 23, 2011 at 9:56 AM

      Yes! I’m glad you said something. I was paying attention to that too, but I got sidetracked by Revere’s catch. Carp is still having a heck of a year. He might have a good future in Seattle.

      • marinersnate - Aug 23, 2011 at 12:37 PM

        In his second go-around in the bigs this year, Carp has been far better than Smoak.

        I too was hoping Carp could keep the streak going a few more days and get somewhere near 30. I wanted to see if the national press would make anywhere near as big of a deal about it as they did for Uggla’s. My guess: not a chance.

  13. Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:13 AM

    Can anyone score against the Braves anymore? I f’ing love this team, even though they can’t keep the hitting going, I don’t care. The pitching is where it’s at and that pitching is f’ing nasty. Minor better send the Cubs back to the minors tonight, Major League 3 style. WOOOOO!

  14. drmonkeyarmy - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:28 AM

    So, JC Romero is pitching for the Rockies now. I did not realize that. Pitched rather poorly last night judging by his line 0.1 innings, 3 hits, 4 runs, 2 earned runs, 1 HR.

    • dianagram - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:32 AM

      Just missed the “pitching line straight” … if only he had pitched 0.0 innings. (though we don’t know how many BBs and Ks)

      Hmmm …. that gives me an idea for a post ….

    • halladaysbiceps - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:34 AM

      That pitching line is terrible. I think Romero will be out of MLB next year. Lefthander or not. Just a gut feeling.

    • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:39 AM

      Yes, but no walks…what a LOOGY

  15. goawaydog - Aug 23, 2011 at 10:55 AM

    In other news, the Gigantes did not put anyone on the DL (or lose) yesterday.

  16. Old Gator - Aug 23, 2011 at 11:12 AM

    Your Morning Tweeter Wrapup: Logan Morrison went ohfer four with two strikeouts against Round Rock for the Nawlins Zephyrs last night and is now batting a cozy .167 in AAA. That’s that; he’ll have to navigate the long bus trip back to the E-Z tomorrow and the difficult transition from those sublime donuts and kalisches to beignets again. I don’t want to knock beignets, it’s just that they’re not filled with anything – not fruit preserves, not creme, not dulce de leche, not even horsemeat and Velveeta. On the bus back to the Budget Inn (correct – no waffer theen meent) he was heard to be muttering distractedlty, to no one in particular, “you don’t carry your bags in the show. Someone carries them for you.” “The 2009 Rookie of the Year” Chris Coghlan, meanwhile, also took the collar – no whiffs, though – and saw his average plummet to a mere .308. He can smell his callup, even now.

    The Feesh didn’t play last night and, thanks to the Feelies pulping the Mutts as if Alderson had a contract for ethanol production out of them, they managed to pick up a half game in the sittings (you can hardly call them “standings” when you’re flat on your ass, can you?). The Curmudgeonly Undead got on their collective cases yesterday, and tonight we’ll see if that did any good whatsoever as our jetlagged prodigals take on the Reds and the Karate Kid. I doubt it. Macondo just found itself barely “outside the cone” of Hurricane Irene, thanks to a friendly high pressure system over the Atlantic that’s drifting to the northeast and sucking the storm away from us. However, prospects are still high for a merciful series of rainouts. Me? I’m just going to make myself a splintered shrimp souffle with sauce Siberia and watch cable while some other teams that know what they’re doing on a baseball diamond entertain me.

    Perhaps Lo Mo (man, that nickname is stupid) should quit baseball and start training to be a running back in the NFL….I hear he breaks motherf@ckers ankles…HEYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

      Yes, it is a stupid nickname – a tabloid cover nickname, to be precise. That’s why I never use it – and I couldn’t give a flying fuck at a rolling donut about Kim Kardashian either. She’s another case of living proof that there are only a few kinds of smart and a limitless number of kinds of stupid. So are the sheep who fell right in with the kitsch contraction of people’s first and last names – all products of the same post-lobotomist mentality.

        Kardashian – A name of no consequence or relevance, butt for her opulence and posterior.
