Diablos beat scrappy Veracruz squad 11-5
Update to follow...
Diablos use long ball and hotter heat to beat the Angels
This past Sunday your Diablos took the field looking to break into the win column for the first time this season. Did they happen to bring their hitting sticks? You bet! Did any of their bombs happen to bring rain? Hell no. It is good to know that although the Diablos cannot end the drought they could definitely supply power to NorCal if rolling blackouts returned. Brother tweaked the lineup ever so slightly and the rout was on. This week featured the return of the Yeti Pacheco. After a spring sojourn to the highest peaks of Camelback mountain he found his way back to the cleanup spot and still hasn't made an out. His purchase of new lumber produced the first back breaking grand slam of the day. The presence of his mom probably didn't hurt(Thanks Mama!). He even managed to not tear anything after stretching at 1B. Next up we had Fredo extending his home run streak to two games. Vegas had his next longball coming somewhere in his late 40's. We were all pleasantly surprised. Only a left hander would attribute his new found power stroke to his sunglasses. I say it's the coffee his mom keeps bringing(Thanks Mama!). Capping off the laser show was a grand slam from Marcus. His power may come from his healthy diet and overall hotness. I believe he was just trying to show a little strength so that crane in the outfield wouldn't swallow him too(poor groundhog). Either way it was an impressive show of power. Meow Meow Ramirez overcame a spiking at second to chip in some loud contact and rap out four hits. Imbo survived a dangerous soft toss incident involving age and gravity to rip a few hits including a double thru the CF fence. Joltin Joe Chaika decided to use the sun ball to dropping a double. Hitting it over an outfielder is overrated as hell. Climbing the hill was Gluten Free Gardella. He got the W with incompetent field engineering and solid control. His heat was hotter. The Angels didn't really have a chance once he started letting out his Monica Seles grunts after every inning. The post game spread didn't really have a chance once he started eating luke warm hotdogs. Making their Diablo debuts were Andrew Pelzl and Michael Cereghino. Pez worked hard behind the plate and learned how to speak Lou in no time flat. Michael pinch hit and showed veteran poise moving a runner over. Come join us next week as the Diablos play their first afternoon game of the season.
2015 schedule has been released
The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here! Well not really. The schedule has been brought down from the mountain top. Okay more like etched on a cocktail napkin. The road to glory has been set. Come join the Diablos on their quest for A2A2M. Oh and click on the schedule link to the left for the uh ya know schedule.
This past Sunday your Diablos began their title defense in the same fashion as the previous two seasons....With a loss. Was it ugly? Yes. Is the sky falling? Not likely! This squad is as battled scarred as any this scribe has ever followed. This loss will only stick with the team until Brooks' knee returns to regular size. Bastards! Toeing the slab for what felt like his 27th Opening Day start for the Diablos was none other than Lou "Quisenberry" Gardella. Believe me he tried to have someone else do it, but Yeti hadn't returned from his hibernation on the Matterhorn. Like death and taxes Lou tried his best to hit someone every 0-2 count he had. A little run support and solid defense could've helped him overcome that submarine delivery. On offense the Diablos had it all. Liberty Court base running...check. Shitty first pitch swings...check. A solo homerun from PR Sainz...che...Wait WTF! Yes the power stroke from our resident left hander seemed to have rolled out of bed with him. He says it was the shades. Meow-Meow says it was his pre at-bat advice. I think it was the fierce 3 mph wind blowing out to RF. All of this is unconfirmed. One thing I do know in 5 years (possibly 5 months) it will turn into an Opening Day Grand Salami that drove in 7 RBI's. The Diablos are off to observe the Easter holiday(Yeah right. These heathens) this weekend so look for an updated schedule to appear within the next week.
LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLets get ready to rumble!!! The word has come from the mountain top that the season starts this week. Sunday 9am your Diablos will face Mexico at Crocker Park. Bring your friends. Bring a neighbor. Bring some random hottie you met at the club. A good time will be had by all.
"I have firm penis can you use it?" This was a text response from our fearless leader to the question of someone needing a new arm. Yes we are already in mid-season form.
Spring has sprung for the Diablos
This past Sunday your ass to ass defending champion Diablos got back to it. With cartilage cracking and hamstrings almost popping the boys attempted to knock the rust off. In most cases the score of an exhibition game does not matter and this time was no exception. As the calendar has flipped to a new year some things have stayed the same. Lou is still as prejudiced as ever when he climbs the hill, Yeti's battle cry is still "I'm cool if anyone wants to pitch in my place", and Ivan became the first Diablo EVER to create a kangaroo court fee and have to pay it on the same day. Bravo, sir. Welcome back Diablo faithful. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on our schedule and where Diablo public appearances will be this season.
RIP Ernie Banks 1931-2015
We should all strive to have as much fun playing the game as he did.
Diablos celebrate Ass 2 Ass championships in epic fashion
I really don't remember this part of the evening
Brother spouting wisdom and useful techniques for lineup creation
How this guy didn't get shot on Mission Street is beyond me
Brother covering all the times Imbo got out, Imbo not giving a damn and the trophy hovering above them
The recaps on these scorecards were the absolute best. Someday we'll have a reunion just to read those again.
The only word that comes to mind is sex
Marcus reminding us all why we play this game
Pacheco Bumgarner....nuff said
FACT: Never have so many balloons been used as make shift penises
I don't know how, but that hat made it home with Brooksy
Oldie but goodie titled Deal with the Devil
Pissy warning letter translation from former league
Your Diablos beat the AB's this weekend 12-6. Many homers were hit on the little league field we played at, but the best part of the day didn't happen on the diamond. We were yelled at by two non-players in a fashion that usually leads to fisticuffs away from the field. Calling our manager a jerk will not be forgotten. Biting our tongue and turning the other cheek got us this warning from the league. We had it translated by a wise veteran who speaks this language.
