Our latest installment of the Bobblehead Project is the first to involve Mother Nature. It wasn’t a rain delay or even a snow delay though, it was ins Merengues back on track.Real are in talks to sign the PSG star.Hagi told Super Deportivo Radio: “They can win easier. Without a doubt. If they sign Neymar and with the (Eden) Hazard hiring, they’ll win the Champions League again.”Then (Zinedine) Zisects. Midges, actually.
The scene: Game 2 of the 2007 ALDS, Yankees at the Indians. Cleveland slaughtered New York in Game 1 (12-3), but the Bombers carried a 1-0 lead into the eighth inning of Game 2. Manager Joe Torre gave the ball to his setup man, , who was summoned from the minor leagues in August and pitched to a 1,221 ERA+ with 34 strikeouts in 24 innings down the stretch.
As soon as Joba took the mound, the midges sprung into action. The little winged insects descended upon Progressive Field and delayed the game several minutes. Chamberlain was very clearly rattled and, with a one-run lead, his inning went:
Four-pitch leadoff walk, runner to second on a first-pitch wild pitch to the next batter.Runner bunted to third.Line out to first base.Runner scores on second-pitch wild pitch to the next batter, whom Joba hits with the next pitch.Six-pitch walk.Four-pitch strikeout to end the inning.
Chamberlain threw only a dozen of his 25 pitches for strikes, and the Tribe tied the game without the benefit of a hit. They did, however, benefit from a couple million friendly locals. Without further ado, here is our latest bobblehead, midge-covered Joba:
The Indians went on to win the game 2-1 in 11 innings and won the series. What everyone forgets about that Game 2 performance is that the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona shoved it for Cleveland. Pitching through the same midge attack as Chamberlain, Carmona allowed one run on three hits and two walks in nine innings.
If this bobblehead was ever put into production, I wouldn’t coucio Pochettino believes there is cash offer for Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.Tuttosport says there is increasing confidence from Milan’s owners Elliott Management that Arsenal could sell Torreira for £35m or less.It would see the Uruguayan reunited with his former coach at Sa uncertainty in his squad at the moment.Spurs are suffering since the start of the season, unable to show the kind of form that got them to the Champions League final last term.And Pochettino believes that it has to dont on seeing it at Yankee Stadium. That’s a Progressive Field giveaway if I’ve ever seen one. Major props as usual go out to our artist, Jarod Valentin, for his outstanding work.
