    The burning question... can a rookie step in and lead the Marlins to glory?

    (Hey, if Anibal Sanchez can do it, why can't I?)

    On July 2, 2007, I stepped into the Sons of Sam Horn's Lurker Nation and began a game thread. It started a four-game winning streak.

    I've studied some historic game threads and recent ones, and I see the rules are the same. Essentially, you win, you come back. But with no "Lurker Nation" buffer, I'm essentially calling myself up to the big leagues here.

    This is a different environment, but similar in some respects. No Green Monster, though we do have a Teal Monster. Fenway has a 420-foot cranny in dead center. DS has a 434-foot cranny in left-center. No extremely deep right field corner. Just extremely deep EVERYWHERE!!! Instead of the Massachusetts Turnpike, we have Florida's Turnpike. No Charles River "Dirty Water". Just South Florida Water Management District Canal 9.

    Yes, this is a big stadium. This is the big time. And I'm ready.

    Sergio Mitre had some good days in May. I'm certain he can channel them again. Can't say the same for Russ Ortiz, though.

    Outside of Baroid, the Giants truly suck. It's time to give them a subtle reminder rude awakening.

    I can sense it. Something wonderful is ready to happen for the Fish. It's a shame only 5,000 people will see it, since school starts today.

    Now saddle up and get behind the good guys! We need to win. We can win! I want this team to get on a tear and steamroll through St. Louis this week. There's another stiff over there that needs a subtle reminder rude awakening.

    WIN!!!

    Day baseball on a Monday. What an odd concept. :rolleyes:

    I'll probably be silent during the 7th inning. That's around the time I'll be coming home from work.

    While I'm here, I'll tell you about a kind of mojo I tripped over when I was doing threads at Sons of Sam Horn: Chutney mojo.

    Someone once mentioned Chase Utley once in passing in a game thread. It reminded me of a joke flash cartoon I once saw with a catchy, repeating verse about chutney. So I posted these lyrics:

    This is a song, it's a song about Utley.
    Utley, Utley, Utley, Utley.

    I posted a link to the cartoon so people knew what I was talking about: http://www.weebls-st...m/toons/chutney

    I decided to keep it playing during an inning, and wouldn't you know it? The Red Sox went on a huge rally. People kept it going by posting pictures of bottles of mango chutney, like this:



    (This isn't the one I usually post. I'm at work, and they block SoSH for some reason, so I can't find the pic I usually use.)

    It's still a very good form of mojo to this day.

    REMEMBER: It's the first day of school and some bus drivers think they own the road...

    so ALWAYS yield to school buses!!!

    Now that's heavy-dute mojo. Miguel Cabrera is the chosen one, and the MVP of the National League.

    Lineup for FLA:

    Ramirez SS
    De Aza CF
    Willingham LF
    Jacobs 1B
    Uggla 2B
    Olivo C
    Hermida RF
    Amezaga 3B
    Mitre P

    I'm new here, but considering there's no Cabrera... is this good, or bad?

    PS: No Bonds for SF.
