A good day is the Dodgers losing.
A really good day is the GIANTS winning.
A great, fantastic day? That is the Dodgers losing and the GIANTS winning...
The best day one can have? The GIANTS beating the Dodgers.
MVBLACHBUSTER did it! He was David up against the Goliath of Chokeshaw! He was Daniel in the Lion's Den of Dodger Stadium Iniquity and Danger! He was pugnacious! He was tenacious! He was gritty! He was thoroughly himself, missing few bats but utilizing the vastly-improved GIANTS defense in both the infield and outfield to send the Dodgers down over and over again!
Meanwhile, an unexpected cherubic
CLONE arose to topple the Luciferian lefty on the hill for the Dodgers in Clayton "Koufax" Kershaw: MVPANIK!
On a pitch that was probably not even a strike, well inside (I think... I'll give it another look later), MVPANIK turned on that rare two-seam fastball from the Dodgers' incomparably-touted ace and smashed it out for the one and only run of the entire nine-inning contest!
, MVCRAWDAD, MVAUSTIN-3:16-JACKSON helped fuel the pressure with hitting firepower, MVPANIK providing two hits including his solo home run!
The much-maligned bullpen corps was splendid this evening, too! With more heart and guts than stuff, MVOSICH, MVGEARRIN, MVTHAT'SELEMENTARYMYDEARWATSON, and MVSTRICKLAND struck the Dodgers lineup like electric eels, slippery and unwieldy creatures from the deep! This bullpen is positively terrifying to witness perform but all's well that ends well and we all know that these results are sure to repeat themselves endlessly with such a stout group of rickety relievers! (Actually WATSON is good and STRICKLAND, if he could ever mature a bit, should be solid in his role.)
It was a phenomenal Opening Day game!
