No, not "finch" like the type of bird and no, as far as I know there is no Mrs. Shark. They say baseball is a game of inches, and to Sharkadize it, I made it "fin"ches. Yes, it's lame and terrible, don't keep reading.
As I was saying, baseball is a game of inches, and the Shark experienced it first hand, today. The Washington Nationals dropped the rubber match against the Orioles 2-1. To lead off the game, Bernadina laid down a perfect bunt, but because his foot was a couple of inches on home plate, he was called out. In the 3rd inning, the Shark crushed a ball right field. Off the bat, it looked like it had a chance to get out of the park, but fell a few inches short and ended up being a double. Then, in the 4th, with the bases loaded, Bernadina blasted another shot to right, but the ball ended up six or fewer inches from the wall. Orioles outfielder Nick Sharkakis (thanks @federalbaseball), did his best Shark impression and robbed Bernadina of a hit.
That was it! A total of 12 inches would have probably given the Shark a 3 for 3 day with 6 RBIs. Instead, he settled for 1 for 5 and the Nats couldn't manage to rally behind his hard hit balls.
I know these past few posts have been weak, but I promise better posts soon. The Nationals face off against the Brewers in Milwaukee...Sharkadina prediction tomorrow.
More to come.
