Figured I’d follow up my divisional predictions with the awards coverage I said I’d have.

Because I’m mean, I’m going to make you follow the jump. You can’t resist the urge to figure out why this post is tagged with “Luke Hochevar”! You know you can’t!

I’m ScriptFrenzy-ing.

Sporadic (and Depressed) WBC Update #4

First pitch of the game: Ball, over but low.

Second pitch of the game: Right down the middle — batting practice for Brian Roberts, who strokes it into the center field bleachers.

Never a bad time for a photo of Roberts, seen here celebrating with his teammates.

Last pitch of the game: Adam Dunn takes a called strike and Japan eliminates USA with a final score of 9-4.

Godsdammit, Davey Johnson! Curse you and your lack of a brain! Don’t you know that when your starter is becoming allergic to the strike zone and giving up more than a couple runs in an inning, you’re supposed to have someone warming up in the bullpen?

Ugh. I’ve never been more glad that “You’re An Idiot” is one of our tags.

Here, Kentucky Derby can be seen about to give up even more runs.

Ted Lilly and Brian Roberts are way hotter than you thought

DISCLAIMER: This post was originally written around midnight while Crane was watching reruns of Lost. The information contained herein may not have any bearing whatsoever on real life, but she’ll try her best to make some sense out of the random crap she finds on Google Images.

I still refuse to like David Wright, but I’ll post a picture of him for all you Met-susceptible girls out there.

I feel like Ive betrayed my core values, posting this photo on my blog.

Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s turn our attention to the other heroes of the night: Ted Lilly and Brian Roberts. Roberts is currently OPSing 1.667 and Lilly’s 1.26 WHIP is the lowest of all the USA starters — but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Oh god, the socks. Lovely.

Check the socks. That's lovely.

I dont care what you say, I think hes cute.

I don't care what you say, I think he's cute.

More pics after the jump.
