The Weekend in Baseball
Yankees Get Swept by the Angels: 3 straight beat downs from the best team nobody is watching leaves the Yankees 12.5 games out of first place and in fourth place behind the Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox. I know it’s trendy to hate on the Yankees but so was the Keyboard tie and that baby when combined with my Members Only jacket is still deadly.
Barry Bonds, Ruining Baseball One Home Run at a Time: After a bit of a drought, Barry Bonds ripped # 746 over the centerfield wall. Barry is now only 9 homers from making baseball implode.
Cubs Bullpen Really Could Use a Montage: Once again, the Cubs bullpen blew a late lead against the Dodgers yesterday, giving up an 8th inning game-tying home run to Andre Ethier and beaning Juan Pierre in the bottom of the 10th. Pinella’s bullpen is Spiderman 3 bad but all is not lost because they are still one sports-training-montage away from being real contenders. The journey will be hard but afterwards those loveable losers will be winners in baseball but more importantly, they will be winners in life. Does anybody else smell Fever Pitch 2?
