Now, that’s what I call a scrappy ball club. Sweeping the Mets, capped with a five-run 12th-inning blitz! Gotta love that. The blue bats have come alive in the clutch. Everybody is contributing something right now, from Uribe’s new-found patience (He’s walked more often than not lately!) to Loney’s key hits and nearly every bat coming through in a pinch. We’re more like the team that started this season than we had been in June. Just gotta keep up the good work and sustain the mojo.
We’re Up Then We’re Down
(Dodgers @ Cardinals, July 23-26, 2012)
We’re up, then we’re down
They speak of our potential.
Gods! Don’t destroy us!
And into lightness I arise.
