OTP - July 2014: Republicans Lose To Democrats For Sixth Straight Year In Congressional Baseball Game
As Time magazine recently reported, Republicans, frustrated by their 22-0 loss in last year’s game, sought a new coach to shake things up on the field this year. Some members even appealed to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to fire the coach, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas). But Boehner said he wasn’t powerful enough to control the baseball diamond, and Barton refused to walk away after spending 28 years with the game. Instead, he brought on Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), a former professional baseball player and coach at Texas Christian University, to coach while he stayed on as the team’s manager.
In the face of Wednesday’s loss, according to The Washington Post, Republicans are once again asking Boehner to remove Barton from the game. But with multiple pitchers giving up walk after walk, it seems that what the Republicans really need is a pitcher who can better match Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who previously pitched on Morehouse College’s varsity baseball team.

from the article: Lohse allowed one run on four singles and no walks, throwing 76 pitches for strikes and leading his team to a 10-2 record (best in baseball) in just two hours and 11 minutes.
really strong defensive work from the brewers this past weekend. multiple nice plays all over the field both infield and outfield. Reynolds started a nifty 3-6-3 double play on Friday night and logan Schafer made a beauty of a catch in left on sunday on an alvarez fly ball where logan crashed into the wall as he was making the catch. just a really swell play
the only nuisance factor in the current winning streak is that ron has these guys still running into outs on the bases. and the combination of gomez and sedar (3rd base coach) is sure to trigger another stroke as carlos is beyond eager to get the extra base and eddie has never met a preordained to fail dash to home plate he wasn’t willing to risk.
but go crew!
