Tonight's Questions

| | Comments (57)
lobsterchild.jpgHey kids, anyone have a mint?

  • WILL the Red Sox/Yankees series garner more national pub than the more compelling Mets/Phillies tilt that also starts tonight? The answer is almost certainly yes, but if don't have a dog in either fight you should have your eyes on the latter.

  • CAN the Brewers play well enough to deal the Cardinals' playoff chances the Death Blow?

  • CAN Roy Halladay notch a win against the Rays? He's 0-4 against them so far this season. I'm going to answer my own question. Yes. I love Roy Halladay.

  • IS there room in your heart for another lobster child?

  • WILL there be any clarity in the NL West by week's end? The Dodgers play the lousy Nats, while the Snakes have the equally lousy Padres.

Then stop by tomorrow for all the answers. Same WoW time, same WoW channel.

Does Cliff Lee put the Tribe ahead of the Tigers for good this year?

Lobster baby>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lobster child

To be fair to lobster child,

lobster baby >>>>> my own unborn child

Lobster child is to lobster baby as McDonald's lobster roll is to lobster.

Lloyd's unborn child >>>>>>>> Chief's puddle in pants

WILL I fall asleep in my terrible upper deck seat tonight watching the Dodgers and Nats play?

What kind of mollusk costume is the child in front of Lobster pre-teen putting on? Is that a Zoidberg Baby outfit?

@ Honeynut

Make with the putting on already! Woop woop woop woop woop.

I really hope my unborn child is a Zoidberg baby. Anything but Kiffbaby

oh, I got room in my ♥ for a lobster child. the claws are endearing.
wow, 2 glasses of champaign and big-ass piece of cake to celebrate a co-worker's wedding sure makes the afternoon go by so zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
can't wait for the 40-mile commute home.

I used to able to drink at work... Then I got fired for drinking at work.

Just scored tickets online for Yanks-Sox tomorrow. Getems.

@ Lloyd - but doesn't Kiff have a better hook-up record than Zoidberg? But I guess I could see how the muumuu is an issue...

Wow, A-Rod. Michael Kaye sort-of gave you a break because you aren't in an odd-numbered year.

I'd be upset about the Red Sox-Yankees game but earlier today, I found there is a Starbucks closer to me than the one I previously identified.

This is great news.

@ Iracane: I'd be a little more crazy during the last couple of innings, but I am listening to The Mercury Program. There's nothing more soothing. I swear by that.

WHY ARE SO MANY GAMES STILL GOING ON I WANT TO GO TO SLEEP IS MARK KOTSAY REALLY BECOMING A RED SOCK

Phillies have cut the lead to 1 in the bottom of the 8th, 2 out, runners on the corners.

J-roll is 5-for-5 tonight and has reached base safely in ten consecutive at-bats.

I WILL STILL BOO YOU IF YOU GROUND OUT.

J-ROLL JUST FLIED OUT WITH THE GO-AHEAD RUN ON SECOND. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Geo Soto for President! Soto-Stewart '08!

Whee! Another former Nats reliever shits the bed.

Holy shit, what a play by Reyes there.

This is an awesome game.

Eric Bruntlett for VP

J-roll just flied out with the winning run on 2nd.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Burrell coming up. I'm calling double play. Any takers?

SWING THE BAT, BURRELL.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

HOW DARE YOU FLASH SOME LEATHER, DELGADO.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

And we go to the eleventh. Businessorleisure, I promise no more booing.

Holy shit, what a play by Delgado there.

This is an awesome game.

Honeynut, Boo all you want. They had a real shot against a bad pitcher there.

Fuck it, I'm cracking a beer... alcoholism be damned.

BOL, I'm several ahead of you. Catch up.

This Mets bullpen is as-advertised.

WOWIEWOWIEWOWWWWW

Great play by Werth to get that ball back in! Terrible slide by Wright, btw.

Jayson Werth might win the "Looks like he lived in Seattle circa 1995 but never liked Sub Pop all that much until 2001" award. It's an unheralded award, but MLB just keeps on giving it.

There is something wrong with the MLB Gameday app. It is telling me that Victorino was intentionally walked, and that Werth and Bruntlett have made outs. However, Victorino popped out, and Werth just walked. Bruntlett isn't even up yet.

WAS THIS GAME SUPPOSED TO BE FIXED?!?!?

@BOL
Jayson Werth may or may not be the lead singer of an Offspring cover band.

Maybe you just don't understand the pfx compatibility. THE PITCH JUST BROKE A SOLID 3.57 INCHES DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THAT MEANS?

@BOL

That it's the Vernal Equinox? Quick, somebody get me an egg.

COLE HAMELS WAS SENT IN TO PINCH HIT AND STRUCK OUT LOOKING.

BO- ahh, screw it.

An egg in every equinox, a white man on every base in Philadelphia.

Bwahahahaha. David Wright just toppled over like he was hit with a cannonball. It was a two-hop grounder, Mr. MVP.

J-roll just flied out with the winning run on 3rd.

A-FUCKING-GAIN.

HOW DO I LIVE LIKE THIS???

Man, no one wants to win this game. OR LET ME SLEEP. I'm listening to Midlake ASAP.

I rarely drink coffee, but when I do, I do it like my dad and like my grandpa used to: black as shit. Sugar is for A-Rod.

The arm muscle that runs diagonally across my the top of my elbow has been twitching intermittently for a week. I may be having a stroke.

It is likely J-Roll's fault.

Holy shit, what a play by Howard there.

This is an awesome game.

Just like that, Howard makes a nifty stop at first and the twitching stops. BOTTOM 12 OR BUST

Uh, how is no one KILLING Heilman in his third inning? Seriously Philly.

Chase Utley swung at a bad 3-0 pitch, and Burrell is 0-7.

On the Streets of Philllladelllllphiaaaaaaa.

How many times will the Phillies strike out looking tonight?

TWITCHTWITCHTWITCH

Man, Seanez is somehow throwing strikes despite just being taken off of life support and a feeding tube.

SOMEONE WIN.

Oh, Schoewy will get me some sleep.

Victorino triples, now Manuel will walk the bases loaded to get to the pitchers spot.

YOU CHEAT, INTERIM MANUEL.

Wait, I think gameday's prophecy is coming true!

GET THE SHRIMP READY

Thanks Scoewy... g'night.

Chris Coste, walkoff single! PHILLIES WIN! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The BusinessorIchiros show was brought to you by the CAPS LOCK key.

Tune in tomorrow when we discuss Kendrick v Johan, involuntary leg spasms, and repetetive posting.
