Hey kids, get your dirty feet off the new sofa

  • DO you realize how many big name pitchers are throwing tonight? Carlos Zambrano, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Andy Pettitte, Brandon Webb, Frenchy Liriano, and Greg Maddux. That's a fun group.

  • HOW bad does king of mediocrity Paul Byrd feel about not being in that list?

  • CAN would-be contenders like the Phillies and the Yankees turn things around against bottom-feeders like the Padres and Royals? They better, or else face the indifference of rabid front-runner fans.

  • DID you know the Astros and Diamondbacks have the same record? Well, they won't after their three-game weekend series is through, especially after Randy Johnson and Roy Oswalt face off on Sunday.

  • WHAT will this fat slob be named when it's all said and done? My vote is for "Manuel the Undocumented Marmot"

  • THINK Richie Sexson will wear a Yankees hat when he is inducted into the hall of fame? He was sent packing today while Melky Cabrera was shipped off to Scranton to get his shit together.

  • WILL I ever glog a Yankee game again? Heck no. It's impossible to even attempt to be rational when your favorite team is losing.

That's a wrap on another fun week of bloggin' and commentin'. Thanks for reading our sentences and making great jokes at our expense. Please watch baseball this weekend, whether you peep it on TV or hop in your sexy car to head for your local ballpark, and please read the work of our weekend editor and friend Lloyd the Barber. He'll be here Saturday and Sunday to keep us all updated on nearly every game.

Paul Byrd is burying his sorrows in a reuben as we speak, and washing it down with a bacon-mint milkshake.

"Luxury" box at the A's game tonight. I'm gonna drink so many 40s.

*if the fine folks at Sonic are listening, there IS a market for a bacon-mint milkshake. Thanks.

My mom and I are HUGE Lloyd fans!

"DID you know the Astros and Diamondbacks have the same record? Well, they won't after their three-game weekend series is through, especially after Randy Johnson and Roy Oswalt face off on Sunday."

What if there is a rain out? In a dome. Or a plane crash?

Farthammer, that's the second time you've mentioned a luxury box at Oakland.
You're really Gavin Newsome, aren't you?

If you can't make it as the re-animated Yankee-that-catches-fire-during-the-stretch-run, your career is truly over.

shoulda been you Sheffield.

@Honeynut

There used to be a cart in Portland that served bacon-caramel milkshakes. I never had one, but my understanding is that they were awesome.

Yes, 7 you answered your own question

I am sure Paul Byrd has better things to do than read this site

No

No, No shit

CC Sabathia

No

Hope not

I am sure Paul Byrd has better things to do than read this site

No, he doesn't. I know this for a scientific fact because I read it on the internet which as everyone knows is a completely objective source of information and should never be read in a jocular manner.

Fielder's choice is a kind way of saying a failed double play.

@kwsn: Or a ball hit so weakly, that no one can field it quickly, which is almost worse.

@Businessorleisure: I this case, it was Weeks missing the glove of Fielder and nailing the rail of the dugout.

... that's supposed to be an in, not an I for the record.

Phillas,

Luxury box at Oakland means regular seat at Pac Bell. Or AT&T. Seriously, I paid like 40 Bucks tonight.

And saw BAZUKI hit a walkoff hr and I got wasted and took BART with a ton of mexican dudes who all had 40s.
