- Braves 5, Nationals 4
Apparently, Jose Guillen has decided on a new strategy. If the Nats are going down, Jose's taking everyone else down with them. A hard slide into 3rd to break up a double-play left Chipper Jones with some extra ventilation for his boys, a thigh-high spike-induced rip in his trousers.
Chipper: "There are correct ways to break up a double play. Almost castrating somebody is not the way to do it. I'll remember that the next time I go into second base against them."
Jose: "Next time I come even harder then."
Is it just me, or is Jose starting to sound a little bit like Tony Montana? Tell me you can't imagine Jose saying this:What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!
