Peacock + Shark = Deadly

Who knew that a Shark coupled with a Peacock could make such a deadly combination.  Last night, in Syracuse, Brad Peacock twirled a gem, giving up just 1 run in 5 and 2/3 innings, while striking out 9 leading to a 7-4 Syracuse win over the Yankees. His inspiration, Roger "the Shark" Bernadina.

"I know that it is silly," Peacock explained after the game, "but with the Shark on the Chiefs, I feel like I'm already in the Show.  He has major league talent and experience and knowing he's patrolling center field, gives me a confidence which is almost impossible to describe.  I feel like a fruit bat"

Nobody really knew what he meant by the "fruit bat" comment, but they let it slide because he pitched so well.  Also, they ignored the fact that Bernadina went hitless in the game (0-4).  They (the people of earth) know what the Shark can do and know the importance of his presence in a lineup.  Both of these men will get a call-up before the year is over.  Hopefully sooner than later...

Meanwhile in the majors, the Nationals are fighting to get their record back to .500 and beyond.  Beating the Phillies last night 4-2 was a good sign.  Also, Mako Morse's silly antics help a bit too.

More to come.
