Baseball Before Bedtime: One Great City

| | Comments (6)

Here's what happened in baseball while I heard you proclaim "I hate Winnipeg"

Marlins 4, Diamondbacks 3: Walkoff! Wow! Sassy senior Jorge Cantu provided the game-winning RBI single after teammate Hanley Ramirez's tater tot tied the game at 3 in the ninth inning. Former Red Sock Brandon Lyon blew his first save since April 6th by allowing two runs while recording but one out. Poor Danny Haren had a Quality Start and it all went to shit. Arizona has amassed a 13-25 record since their last trip to Miami started back in May and now lead the NL West with a wildly mediocre 41-41 record.

Blue Jays 1, Braves 0: A.J. Burnett was the talented Toronto starter of the day, throwing seven shutout innings and tallying eleven strikeouts over a depleted Atlanta lineup. Chipper Jones missed another game and could end up in the next installment of What's Up Creampuff. Jo-Jo Reyes was the hard luck loser, giving up just one run on an Alex Rios RBI dubble in the sixth. Sucks, dude.

Angels 1, Dodgers 0: I don't get it. The Dodgers got no-hit on Saturday and won, then got three hits on Sunday and lost. Hey Joe Torre, STOP LETTING YOUR PLAYERS BE SUCCESSFUL. John Lackey was made of magic as he allowed just five baserunners over 8 2/3 innings, and then took a seat to let Frankie Rodriguez pick up his league-leading 32nd save. Shit, he's gonna break the all-time single season record at this rate! Hey, Mike Scioscia, how's that six-run per game potential you crowed about?

Cito Gaston strikes again.

One step forward, two steps back. The CC watch continues.

What does any of this have to do with Wall-E?

The worst thing about the Rays' success is that a lot of people are (I'm assuming) convinced that it's the result of taking "Devil" out of the name. And that, in turn, means I can probably count on poor sales for my 'Hellfire Demon of Destruction' line of children's toys and safety products in Florida.

hey, if you've got a "Mommy, there's something under my bed" action figure, I'd buy that.

That's a odd plea from a cat named Iracane.
