Baseball Before Bedtime: Short Skirt/Long Jacket

| | Comments (11)

Here's what happened in baseball while you used a machete to cut through red tape:

Nationals 2, Dodgers 1: Derek Lowe's complete game gem went for naught as his Dodgers were held down like a naughty dog and allowed to score but one run against a bevy of Warshington pitchers. Heck, L.A. got runners on base, but Nats third baseman Ryan Zimmerman started four double plays; Zim killed more rallies than the Denver police force.

Indians 10, Tigers 4: Cliff Lee has nineteen wins against just two losses for a mediocre Midwestern team. If he doesn't win the Cy Young, I'll eat my hat. Ben Francisco's two tater tots picked up the slack for outfieldmate Grady Sizemore.

White Sox 8, Orioles 3: The South Siders are riding the Obama convention bounce to a tidy AL Central lead. Starter Gavin Floyd went eight strong and helped his team improve to 18-8 in his 26 starts. Selfish infielder Orlando Cabrera had four hits and two RBI.

Blue Jays 6, Rays 2: After three losses in his first three starts against the UPSTART Rays, Roy Halladay finally got his shit together and put a Roy Halladay-style beating on the kids from the F-L-A. Fella only went six innings but hey, Vernon Wells and Rod Barajas both hit a ding-dong to support the cause. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT, ROY?

Red Sox 7, Yankees 3: Mike Lupica was right about one thing, that being: "Mike Lupica is an enormous douchebag". Okay, maybe Mike Lupica didn't really say that about Mike Lupica, but you better believe everyone who reads Mike Lupica or works with Mike Lupica or sells coffee to Mike Lupica agrees on one thing, that being: "Mike Lupica is an enormous douchebag". I don't know what that has to do with this game, except I will probably be wearing a Red Sox hat this weekend as part of a silly bet.

Phillies 8, Mets 7 (13): Another day, another former Nats reliever blows a big game for his new team. This time, Luis Ayala earned his role as a stinky Mets reliever by giving up the game-tying RBI dubble to pinch-hitter Eric Bruntlett with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. The Mets blew a 7-0 lead in this game. I have no jokes for this.

You may not have jokes for the Mets game, but some of us did. Hiyooooooooo.

/they weren't very funny.

Glad to see the kids entertaining themselves last night.

Some day years from now your grandchildren will be on your knee, looking up at you, and asking where you were for the Indians comeback of '08. You'll be able to tell them you were there, because Wahoo told you about it.


Last night the racing Teddy Roosevelt was sporting a Manny dreadlocks wig. It was...mind boggling.

Teddy Being Teddy.

@Wahoo - I agree that this nine-game bender has been pretty amazing for the Tribe.
I bet they've made up a ton of ground in the standings the last 10 games.
/checks standings last 10 days

One game? One goddamn game?

Don't fucking write curse words on WoW!

You can swear in the woods too


Palehose, at this rate we'll pass you sometime in September. September, 2024.

@Chief - I'm guessing Julio Franco and Carlos Baerga will still be around in the Dominican league at that point.

So, A-Rod had a good game last niBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I like the cut of your jib.
