Ronny Cedeno was the apparent ringleader as he led the team in a "can't play Shark, so we gotta make it rain" chant.
The below photograph backs Doodle's claim. Doodle is pictured working while the Pirates conjure up the downpour. Clearly they know that Shark's thrive in the water...

Yesterday, I coined a new word; Bernadefense. The word refers to playing defense in a way reminiscent of the Shark. Someone who makes a highlight reel catch displays Bernadefense. The Anti-Shark, Logan Morrison, does not play Bernadefense.
My one problem with Bernadefense is that it doesn't reference "shark" in it.... So I asked twitter and here are the best(and pretty much only) answers:
@sarrraright - bernadeFINs
@DCyetti - Selachimorphense
So good! Thank you @sarrraright and @DCyetti, you've really stepped up to the challenge. If anyone else has a good shark-related term describing Bernadina, please write them in the comment section below!
Coming up: The series with the Pirates is over for now. The Nationals now head to NY for a series for the Mets again. You'll remember, they faced the Shark earlier this year during his first callup. Somehow the Mets won. Expect the Shark to seek revenge.
More to come.
