Bonds Fails, A-Rod Falters, Glavine Deserves Win
And The Brewer's Prevail In Thirteen.
The milestone night that every ones favorite Pravda network, ESPiN, predicted kind of fizzled.
Bonds K's vs. Brad Penny in first.
A-Rod fails to connect vs. ChiSox.
Tom Glavine pitches brilliantly (Or more accurately, Milwaukee is really lame at the plate right now), and should have gotten his 300th.
Alright, I admit it, my wife called me an idiot. What she really meant was I'm delusional.
She just doesn't understand Brewer Fever, that's all.
I was watching the Crew on the 54 incher, the Flubs on the 23 inch computer screen and had the Trolley Dodger game set up for it's 2210 start time. The game on the 32 inch Hi-Def was N.Y. vs Shitcago.
I may have gone overboard tonight.
I stayed up for all of it.
The Phils got robbed, as did the Crew. Bad umpires are killing me slowly with their song.
Bottom of six in Shitcago and one out. Play at the plate. Catcher slams tag on runner while runner is at least one foot from the plate, and at least eight inches above the plate. Idiot calls him safe and Shitcago scores twice more.
The correct call here makes it 3-3 in the 7th and Charlie Manuel pitches his bullpen ace (Flash), not his mop up guy.
All I'm saying, we all want Glavine to win 300, just give Soup the same strike zone you gave Tommy. Afford Soup the same K-zone and he lasts into the eighth and we never have to even catch a glimpse of Wise.
Brad Penny K's Barry in first. Dodger fans boo him mercilessly. As it should be.
Bonds K's, then he walks intentionally. Third at bat Bond's walks on a strike right down the middle that Penny complains about. Then he skies a routine "can of corn" that the LF misplays and he has a 1-2 night and his OPS gets larger, even though he did nothing to influence the outcome of the game.
A-Rod...who cares ? New York? Not Me. Until he brings home Herpes his wife doesn't care either.
She's getting paid. Chlamydia may be a different story. That may cost him the 20 mil diamond that Kobe had to buy for his wife. Heh Heh.
Great win tonight for the crew.
Nedly used 8 pitchers tonight but none threw more then 20 pitches.
Turn-Blow was nice, CoCo was outstanding, throwing less then 15 pitches to retire the side. Wise sucked.
Spurling was great and Dave picked up a win he deserved the last time he pitched.
Soup got us to the seventh, but he has to finish that inning.
Villanueva was his usual. The guy is the MVP of the team right now hands down.
Carlos is a starter next year. He earned it and deserves it. Who do we send to the pen?
Bush, is my guess. Vargas has given us great innings this year, you can not demote him.
It should be the 40 million dollar man but we know how that goes down.
Now we get two different starters for tomorrows game.
Vargas will tax that bullpen again. He can not go past seven. In fact if he gives us seven it will be welcomed as a blessing. We do have Parra and Bush again to go long relief, but I think Ned has Parra penciled in as a starter.
The Mets hit, if Vargas, on one day less rest, struggles we could be looking at a 2-1 series loss.
Is anyone here following the wild-card race?
I know we don't want to mention it, but it is a reality.
