Jacket 1, Jose Fernandez 0

Apr 13, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT


Marlins starter Jose Fernandez can throw a baseball better than all but a few human beings on planet earth. He had just singled and driven in the Marlins’ first run of the game to break a scoreless tie — his first career hit and RBI as well — but it was a jacket that really gave him difficulty.

Fernandez has, thus far, outdueled Phillies ace Cole Hamels through six innings tonight, holding the Phillies scoreless and lowering his season ERA to 0.82.

    Man, can anything go right in Miami?

      Sure, if you’re a local politician with an offshore bank account.

    That’s not his fault at all.

    Jeff Loria bought a lot of the team’s official merchandise from the irregular bin at TJ Maxx.

    Most of their jockstraps have 3 leg straps.

      Yeah, but sometimes they get it right. Scrooge McLoria’s personal jockstrap has perfectly positioned holes for his eyes and nose.

      I know what the giveaway on Senior Citizens Night is.

    Where’s that rank Fernandez amongst Marlins’ RBI leaders? Third?

    • dondada10 - Apr 13, 2013 at 9:06 PM

      I was trying to be funny, but looked it up too. His first career RBI puts Fernandez 7th on the Marlins in RBI.

    Pitching EASY.

    Jacket HARD.

    Fekkin with Rookies? PRICELESS.

    Looking for his green card? DEPORTED!

    Speaking of deported, remember that tonight is the Churchill’s Pub Second First Annual Invasive Species Festival in Defiance of Earth Week. All kinds of great local musicians and bands and comedians will be teaming up to push for legislation leading to full legal indigenousness for our Burmese pythons, fire ants, northern snakeheads, tegus, walking catfish, giant land snails, iguanas, monk parakeets, giant toads, maleleucas, strangler figs, caimans, Gambian pouched rats and dozens of species of anoles. I think they will wait, respectfully, for the end of the Feesh game before starting it up, to give all you foreign legions of fans the time to get over to the east side to celebrate. I think.

      Maybe the Feesh can rent out the empty space in the stadium as a terrarium for our newly adopted unaboriginal critters.
