Post-Game 36 Thread: Fish, Fried

DODGERS 5, MARLINS 3

The Dodgers win a series! For the first time since April 26-28! And we're still in last place in the NL West, and it was only the Marlins, but let me say it again: The Dodgers Win A Series!!!

Backed by the first HR of 2013 and second HR of his career from Scott Van Slyke (who also singled in another run later, AND made a great diving catch over the first base wall), the Dodgers jumped out to a 5-1 lead going into the ninth. Carl Crawford also had a RBI single, and Nick Punto and Andre Ethier each had a sacrifice fly.

But you can't spell Brandon League without a big "gue" at the end. League allowed two singles while getting only two out, and then gave up a two-run-scoring double to Adeiny Hechavarria to make it another Brandon League nail-biter. Finally, League got Greg Dobbs to ground to third for the final out.

You know what they say: Adeiny Hechavarria is always dangerous late. Wait, scratch that; I meant to write, Brandon League is always dangerous late. As a closer, that is. Whatever. Fish not withstanding, I'll take it.

You just can't get this kind of inside baseball commentary and insight on other other blogs! Bravo, Saxy!

The gue is an extinct type of two-stringed bowed lyre or zither from the Shetland Isles.[1] Now extinct, the instrument was alive as recently as 1809, and was described in the writings of Sir Arthur Edmondstone.[2]
The exact details of the gue are unclear, but it possibly resembled extinct bowed lyres such as the Norwegian giga, or the extant Swedish and Estonian talharpa or Finnish jouhikko. However, other ethnomusicologists believe the gue more resembled the Icelandic fiĆ°la, a two-stringed bowed zither. Peter Cooke notes the prevalence of the tautirut bowed zither among the Inuit peoples in areas of Canada influenced by Orkney and Shetland sailors, as possible evidence that the Inuit bowed lyre is based on a Shetland model.
