May 06 2040: hansen's big day - by shmyles on April 5th, 2019

young stunner caleb hansen went deep three times last friday in a cup game that concluded today as a four-game sweep of the north el dorado pay dirt. he's decidedly in good form after homering again saturday and posting another hit in today's 5-2 victory.

"i feel like i'm playing the best baseball i've ever played," he told a reporter friday. hansen boasts an impressive .352/.402/.657 on the year in league play.

"there's been a great environment in the clubhouse and we're all really committed to playing better baseball. that's motivating me a lot when i go out there."

dana robbins praised the team's performance over the weekend and expressed hopes that the struggling rockets would be inspired to "keep that same energy" tomorrow against division leaders atlantic city.

"somebody tweeted that during the game. he said something like 'keep this energy rockets,' or...no, no, i know. it said 'k-t-s-e rockets.' obviously," gesturing to himself, "i had no clue what that meant. i'm in my sixties and it's my second day on this twitter thing. c'mon, guys."

as usual, robbins earned some laughs from the press conference clientele.

"but i've been googling stuff for decades," he went on, "as i assume everyone has been. i'm not that old. so i googled those letters, and i found out that it's an acronym for...what, again? keep what?"

an aide chimed in with the answer: "keep that same energy?"

"right," robbins went on, "exactly. so i just thought, like, that's incredible. that's perfect. 'keep that same energy.' the rockets you saw tonight could and should be the rockets most nights. when we make plays like we did today the guys get fired up and do their goofy handshakes in the dugout. let's keep that when it matters. keep that energy or whatever."

the rockets have lost 17 games already and are coming off of a 1-2 series loss to the brookview island falcons, but things are looking up, rock fans. we feel that this won't be hansen's last day like this by a longshot.
