Baseball Before Bedtime: Dream All Day

| | Comments (5)

Here's what happened in baseball while you lost a lot of sleep trying to understand:

Diamondbacks 4, Cardinals 3: This Adam Dunn trade paid off well tonight as the big fella laced a walkoff RBI dubble that plated Conor Jackson. The Cards bullpen got tagged with its league-leading 29th loss, but hey, that's what happens when you employ Ron Villone.

Pirates 6, Reds 5: Don't call it a winning streak. Yes, we realize the Pirates have now won two in a row after losing eleven straight, but don't get all cute on us, Pirates beat writers. Sure you'd like to inject some humor into your otherwise tiresome recaps, but there are better ways. Call Dusty Baker a goofball or bemoan the front office for trading Jason Bay, but don't make a goofy 'winning streak' joke.

Yankees 8, Rays 4: Instant replay got its cherry popped tonight after a two-run tater tot by Alex Rodriguez was called into question by the umps. They went to their little umpire room, watched the video, told some inappropriate jokes, and then returned to the field with good news: it was a fair ball and A-Rod became a real boy.

Nationals 9, Phillies 7: Chad Durbin giveth, Chad Durbin taketh away. Like a selfish girlfriend who won't go out dancing on a Saturday night, Durbin got the Phils' hopes up going 2-1 with a 1.65 ERA in the first three months of the year. Since then, he's blown five saves and lost three games raising his ERA over half a run. Tonight's line: five hits, four runs, and a tater tot to Ryan Zimmerman in just two-thirds of an inning to waste Ryan Howard's two ding-dongs.

Blue Jays 5, Twins 4 (11): You let John McDonald beat you with the glove, okay, that's expected. You let John McDonald beat you with the bat, shame on you.

Put on your dancing shoes
you filthy little swine

The Posies. Wow. Now that is a group I have not heard in years.
I think I own that on cassette.

The umps took about 2:15 to utilize the instant replay system. IT WAS A SCHOOL NIGHT! Won't someone think of the children?

Walkoff Walk is your go-to source for 30+ year old dudes reminiscing about the late 80s alt-rock scene.

@Rob - I look forward to your 2-day, Urge Overkill retrospective.
