well, that and Teixeira's.


matsui's was emblematic - tex was legit-ish


ish? That was a bomb.


"bomb" = somewhere into the least expensive seats

tex hr = garden-variety homer, not cheap, not special


My dad took me to a Phils game earlier in the season- against the Dbacks.

Howard nailed one into Ashburn Alley.

THAT was a bomb. Tonight's HRs were yankee stadium HRs.

Matsui's was BS, no question, but come on, Teixeira's was out in any ML park that isn't a joke (Citi Field), and probably even there.

Bravo for your environmentally-sensitive recycling of headlines. Surely you could have thought of something a bit more original.

its hard to accurately scout a guy like burnett. hes totally capable of going out there 30 some times a year and pitching like this. but hes a head case. he will make pefect pitch after perfect pitch one start, then the next he'll walk 4 and have 3 wild pitches.


Also hard to scout him getting numerous strike 3 calls over the opposite side batter's box

Agreed. Tex's homer was a legit, real HR but it was just a regular one, not a bomb.

Matsui's was a joke -- I still can't believe it was anywhere near a HR, thought it was a lazy fly.

Makes complete sense.


Disagree - sorry, Charlie.


Back when the Mets lined into a triple play, Charlie discussed how he didn't like to send the runners in that situation or with one out, largely for fear of a line out double play.

He may be right, he may be wrong, but at least he's consistent.

I think he was right. Just because Utley grounded into a double play (which called accurately, he didn't) doesn't make it the wrong decision.

the off day is the worst part - i wish they would have made a habit of losing game 1 and winning game 2. but it'll all be better by this time Monday night when we burn this mother down.

Reading headlines.

Ugh, working in media can suck. I can understand the paper writing a homer story, but to the extent the NY media takes it drives me up a wall.

"Yankees wake up the slumbering lumber"? That implies a MUCH more offensive game than we saw tonight. Among other complaints. Time to have a beer and play xbox to relax.

I found it plenty offensive.

I don't know, but if he starts bobbing and weaving it's going to cause a seizure.

Really happy to hear this. I don't want Pedro to go out this way. At the very least, I want to see him get redemption in this series (assuming he isn't part of a parade).

I just watched Anthony Gargano and Joe Staszak reporting from Yankee Stadium on Fox29.

I wish I hadn't.

Joe essentially upset that the Phillies weren't breaking crap up in the clubhouse after the loss.
