Wow. 10-1. Nice to be on the right side of a laugher again.

I'm a little worried Tito seems to want Pap to get a lot of 5 out saves. Didn't work out that way tonight, of course, but it still worries me.

Whoa. Smoked by King Felix, 3-0. Back to 4-4. Well, the Yanks lost, too, with Moose suffering a tight hammy.

Too early to scoreboard watch?


Hernandez was awesome tonight. Dice was good, but he gave up some knocks. Hernandez was AWESOME.
Eighth inning single....YES!!!!!!!!
I feel duty bound, as a meaningless, misinformed blogger, to comment about the Imus kerfuffle.

I've listened to Imus before, only because he was what was on before the sports radio station in Boston began their programming for a while. He was never really all that funny, or interesting, or anything special at all. I know by reading about him how important he is to Washington/New York media/political types, and I know that a lot of presidential candidates have appeared on his show.

What he said about the Rutgers basketball team was rude-sexist, racist, and unacceptable. As a broadcast professional, he knows damn well that his words are going over the air, and he didn't care. Those thoughts don't come from the ether, they come from inside your head.

I feel like it is not only justified, but required, for his sponsors and NBC to drop him. If you continue to pay his salary, you de facto endorse his words.

I know I'm going to hear the argument, "Geez, people can't say anything anymore these days. Not like it used to be." To which I say, GOOD! I'm glad that certain words and sentiments are no longer acceptable among civilized people. They are ugly, and while they don't have to be banned by governmental fiat, they can be banned by lack of usage, and allowing them to wither on the vine is all the fame these words deserve.
Well, this isn't going so well. Losing 3-0 through 5. Felix Hernandez is NASTY tonight.
But Dice-K is still showing he can get out real, non-Royals hitters as well, so he should be fine. We just have to get some runs.

13-1! Nice to be on the right side of a butt kicking for once.
The Riches was on again last night. Awesome, awesome, AWESOME show.

"Withdrawal will lead to chaos."
-John McCain

As opposed to what, Senator? Anbar Province is just like Pasadena, right?

Well, we're 6 games in-3 up, 3 down. We had Beckett's struggling start, which we won, and awesome performances from Dice K the other day and from Schill last night. Wakefield pitched well in a loss, and Tavarez and Schill got hammered for the other two losses. Not too much to complain about, really-the only game we had any business winning was Wake's, and sometimes you lose those, no matter what you do.

Humdinger tonight, but we pulled it out. Papi was huge, as was Pap. Pineiro was scary bad, but Papelbon got five outs very economically. A game we didn't deserve after that awful middle relief, but we took it anyway.

Nice to get a win.

3-1 through 3, Padilla vs. Schilling. Two homers by Papi. Other than the fact that it isn't helping my fantasy team, a good start. We could use a win, after two straight days of the offense snoozing.
