Benny And The...Marines?

Benny Agbayani put the finishing touches on a 10-1 Chiba Lotte Marines victory in Game 1 of the Japan series, which was called after seven innings due to a dense fog.

Agbayani, playing right field, went three for four with two RBI's including his first home run of the series for the Bobby Valentine managed Marines, just before the game was called. Matt Franco went 1 for 4 for Chiba Lotte.

One thing I learned in trying to follow this series: don't try to read the game log straight from the Marines website. Something is definitely lost in the translation. Here, for example, is the log from the bottom of the first inning:

(The Tigers pitcher * Ikawa)
1st Nishioka swing wide three swing. 1 death
2nd now to the river left stand solo home run of the series 1st number! 1 death. 1-0 To 3rd luck inlet left line 2 based hits! 1 death 2 base
4th sub low third racketeer. 2 deaths 2 base
5th village promontory swing wide three swing. Change
Racketeer? Promontory? Death?

Wow, I didn't know the game was so violent in Japan.

By the way...since the game was called right after Benny's dinger due to fog, does that count as a walk off home run?

It wouldn't be the first...

Hey, when is that Metsography going to start?

Metstradamus said...

How's that for an answer?

Yankees Chick said...

I can't say I'm the biggest METS fan (reference my name...) BUT I do read your blog all the time because it is one of the best written ones out there. Yankees fans are falling short when it comes to writing, so I started my own blog. Peruse it if you please, you might at least find Yankees propaganda to fuel your hatred!! :) http://yankeeschick.blogspot.com/

Metstradamus said...

chick, enemies are always welcome. Hatred and bitterness always needs fuel.

Thank you for the kind words.

i was watching the ventura grand slam single game earlier and couldnt help notice how much energy Bobby V brought to the dugout...

i personally think a manager sets the tone by his personal demeanor.. the 99 & 2000 mets had a fire in their bellies.. energy.. never give up attitude... they had the fire because bobby V had the fire...

and as i watched Bobby V pace the dugout all animated, i realized that willie randolph sucks ass...
he should never have been allowed out of the 3rd base coaching box.. let alone manage a team...


im happy for the big 50 and matt franco and an organization like the marines for bringing bobby V back...

I also watched the first inning of the 2000 world series game 2 when roger "the bitch" threw the bat @ piazza.... sorry to use profanity on your blog metstra but every time i watch the beaning and the bat chucking.. my hatred for the cock sucker grows ten folds...

when i go to cooperstown to watch piazza get enshrined, i will spit on clemens plaque if he is makes it in there before piazza.. if not, then ill do it when i go there to watch Wright get inducted...

jabair said...

oh golly miss molly!!!

another chick claiming to be a YANKTHESE fan... how about being original and rooting for the Kansas City Royals or the Pittsburg Pirates...

you are original enough to have a blog but when it comes to rooting for a baseball team....

our neighbor who worked for con edison back in the 80s would get us free tickets to YANKTHESE games but we never went... where were these bandwagoneers when they were giving away free tickets????

maybe they were rooting for the royals and the pirates back then...

Darth Marc said...

Bernie Mac should have his head put on a spit. He was allegedly the biggest Cubs fan in the world in 2003 and he's seen on the South Side with a White Sox jersey last night!!! That's unacceptable...

Darth Marc said...

I went to plenty of Con Ed games, Jabair....thank god, your neighbor was smart enough to keep your dumb ass out of our cathedral...

And I'm still waiting for your address...

Metstradamus said...

That IS unacceptable.

I still loved Ocean's Eleven.

erik love said...

Darth Marc is wrong....again

Bernie Mac was wearing Cubs gear, yea. But always said he's a White Sox fan....

Stop trying to act tough too. Your not good at it....

You ready for tamara night Met$tra?

metswalkoffs said...

This judge says no walk-off for Benny there...not when you win by that much

but then again, its in the eye of the beholder. there are no rules when it comes to walk-offs

jabair said...

hey darth boy!!! there is anew yankthese chick that you can go try to pick and turn into "her best blog friend"

hey num nuts.. our neighbor was dumb enough to give us tickets to the crapper in the bronx but we were smart enough to stay away!!!

fly out to san jose, CA..(maybe they will show the phantom menace on the inflight entertainment to pump your nerd ass up)

let me know ahead of time so that i can come to the airport to kick your ass..

Darth Marc said...

Jabair,

Since it's a fruitless, tedious exercise to get you to give me your address since I did exactly what you asked and made the request here...I'm going to stop asking. Since you're probably 4'10'' with a limp and a bad acne problem. Or are you as ugly as the kid posted on your blog? I should feel sorry for you, since they obviously didn't have punctuation and grammar classes available in San Jose.

You and Erik Love are just mad that only ugly girls root for the Mets.

Let me get this straight. I'm being called a fake tough guy....by two geeks who go on other people's blogs(people they don't know) and talk smack about me? At least Erik Love's blog is somewhat amusing and informative....What's your excuse, Jabair? The only thing on your blog is a ugly little kid with a hand on his head? Why don't you start posting your own stuff instead of riding Metstra's nuts and the rest of the Mets bloggers? What's your excuse? You can harass girls but you don't have the guts to do your own thing? Since you have the writing skills of an autistic three-year old, noone would probably read it.

Metstradamus, despite our sniping, is one of my best friends. I have no problems with the rest of Mets bloggers except you two because you decided to make your comments personal.

Just remember this...you're the ones talking about my lack of a social life...on the internet! Who's more pathetic? The subject or the ones yapping about him?

Chew on that, geeks....

jabair said...

Oh My God!!!!! You literary genuious.... Your blog is so freakin amazing that I am going to nominate you for a Pulitzer Prize.

I took a virtual stroll over to your blog but was completely shocked at one thing that was intuitively obvious to the most casual observer.

You write and write and write, however, you rarely have people leave comments on your blog.

Either people don't read your crap or you delete their comments because you dont like what they have to say. You have deleted my comments from your blog plenty of times.

Here is a list of all your entries and the amount of comments people have left.

Notice how the ZERO comments add up numnuts? Also, half of those comments are your replies so they don't count.

Oh by the way, how am I doing on punctuation helmet head?

With all the writing you do, you have 287 profile views and I haven't written a single line on my blog and I have 89 views.

I also have my comments disabled.

Still tracking my punctuation and grammer, bitch?

I had been planning on ignoring you, however, everytime I question the loyalty of a self proclaimed YANKTHESE bandwagon jumper who happens to be of the female persuasion, you have to run out of the phone boot with your "Captain Save-A-Ho" cape on to try to rescue the damsell in distress.

They are big girls, I am sure they can stand up for themselves. But you cant help it can you? You must save them somehow. Did your father abandon your mother? Is that where this urgent need to save chicks in blogsphere come from?

What are you going to do with my address tough guy? Have your death star shoot a photon ray from outer space at my address using Mapquest?

If you want to see who has the acne and a limp, who is 4'11", who that "ugly" kid is and who has autism, why dont you just fly out here, I will answer all your questions and provide you with a complimentary ass kicking in the process. Post your arrival date and time into San Jose on here so that I know when to show up at the airport.

Does Metsrtadamus know that you are his best friend? As far as riding nuts goes, how come you don't have anyone riding your nuts? Is it because you don't have nuts?

Dude, you are 33 and use a star wars fictional character as a handle and refer to people who don't agree with you as "infidels." Real original. Use another word, its not cute anymore. You are wearing it out.

Who is the real geek here?

You use the word "infidel" more often than Osama Bin Laden.

I am sure you still live with your mother. Didn't want to abandon her after what your father did.

What is the difference between Star War fans and Star Trek fans? DO you consider trekkies to be "Infidels?" Are they a lower life form than you "Holier than thou" Star Wars geeks?

How many 33 year old star wars geeks does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Sorry Metstra for doing this again but someone's gotta put the bitch back in his place.

jabair said...

Hey Darth, I'm sure George Lucas appreciates you riding his nuts!!!

Is the Phantom Menace out on DVD yet?

erik love said...

At least Erik Love's blog is somewhat amusing and informative...

That is the sweetest thing you've ever said to me Darth....

I know Met$tradamus too....

Just not that John person...

Darth Marc said...

Oh and by the way, Erik, I forgot to address this earlier...since when is it ok for a White Sox fan to wear a Cubs jersey? Why are you letting Bernie Mac off the hook, Erik? Would any of you wear Yankees gear just because they represent New York? The fact that all these Molly fan websites exist tells me the answer to that question is no.....

Spellcheck is a wonderful invention, Jabair...use it.

This is boring....

Since this is getting tired and tedious, Jabber-Jaws, this is the last time I dignify anything you write with a response.

You probably have as many hits on your profile because people are wondering who the hell this jackass is that's commenting on their blogs. When someone I don't know leaves a comment, I check their profile out of curiosity. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Since you have no life, you probably read about 1000 blogs regularly and make stupid comments on at least half of them. So I'm not surprised that you have as many hits on your profile.

I deleted your comments because you were crude and personal. And I have kids that read my blog. Dog my team all you want, tell me that I suck...but you crossed the line with the things you wrote. I'm the moderator and I outrank you.

You act as if I care that I
don't have a billion hits on my blog. I started writing my blog to vent about my team and life in general. My friends told me that I should start a blog and it's for their benefit that I write it. They read it and enjoy it and that's all that matters. They've gotten their friends to reading it and they email me to tell that they enjoy it. They don't have to comment on the blog because they know me personally and do it either in person or by email. Would it be cool to have Metstradamus' blogosphere following? Maybe. But if I have to deal with jackasses like you pissing people off on my blog, I'll take my very small but loyal following thank you very much.

I'm not making money on this thing so what do I care how many hits I have? It's for my entertainment and my friends. Not yours.

But you failed to answer my one question in your rant? Why don't you write your own blog instead of commenting and taking shots on everyone else's? Is it because your one speed rant would grow old and tired real fast and people would grow bored and not give you the attention you so desperately crave? I can't imagine why someone with your vocabulary and writing style couldn't come up with different ways to call the Yankees bitches every week.

Metstradamus said...

Please leave my nuts out of this.

Darth Marc said...

With pleasure....

jabair said...

ouch!!!! why are you so defensive??? did i touch a sore spot with my "rant" earlier!!!

i didnt create a blog to post stuff on, i needed to create a profile to post comments...

i dont write my own blog because they are plenty of good mets blogs out there... why re-invent the wheel...

if you didnt want "strangers" commenting on your blog then why did you even come up with one? retard?

it would have been easier if you guys met in a "dragons and dungeons" chat room and bitched about the Yankers...

why didnt you and your so called imaginary friends get together in your mothers basement???

im pretty sure your mommy said something about not playing with strangers but i really dont think she would mind if you had people other than your imginary friends comment on your blog!!! jackass!!!

and i call yankers bitches every week cause thats what they are.. plain ole vanilla flavored bitches!!!! every week... if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck.. then its a duck!!!

im pretty sure all the "kids" who read your blog certainly enjoy reading "infidels must die" every week

seriously though.. this is my second request... please answer the following questions:

everytime I question the loyalty of a self proclaimed YANKTHESE bandwagon jumper who happens to be of the female persuasion, why do you have to run out of the phone boot with your "Captain Save-A-Ho" cape on to try to rescue the damsell in distress?

is your death star going to shoot a photon ray from outer space at my address using Mapquest?

What is the difference between Star War fans and Star Trek fans? DO you consider trekkies to be "Infidels?" Are they a lower life form than you "Holier than thou" Star Wars geeks?

How many 33 year old star wars geeks does it take to screw in a light bulb?

WHY DO YANKERS FANS GET PISSED OFF WHEN YOU ASK THEM HOW LONG THEY'VE BEEN ROOTING FOR THE YANKERS?

i think these are pretty legitimate question.. wouldn't you agree darth bitch??

jabair said...

oops i called you a bitch again!!! how unoriginal of me!!!!

jabair said...

and how do you know i read a 1000 blogs a day? are you stalking me while wearing your mothers old lingerie you sick bastard?

erik love said...

Never said is was right Marth...

Just was correcting you kid....



Can't we all just get along?

Darth Marc said...

Erik,

Our wars ends when all wars end..

But I suppose we can get along...for Rosa Parks!!!!
