Baseball Before Bedtime: Four Strong Winds

Here's what happened last night in baseball while I went out to Alberta.

Mets 4, Braves 3: See below. There was skrimp. But according to Chipper Jones, it never shoulda happened. Here's Ol' Chips take on the umpire calling Carlos Beltran safe on a ninth inning steal: "Let's just say the baseball gods owe us one," Jones said. "The game came down to one play, and the umpire got it wrong. Why he got it wrong, I don't know. I never had a guy slide into my glove and be safe." UMPIRE KILLED BY CROSSBOW.

Phillies 5, Dodgers 3: Jayson Werth gots ants in his pants. Homeboy completed the ultra-rare steal cycle in last night's 7th inning, including a steal of home that gave the Phillies the lead. Boy's got some jumbo eggs on him.

Blue Jays 5, Yankees 1: Yesterday's Halladay/Burnett match up was treated as some sort of Mr. Miyagi vs. Daniel San thing that I thought was a little overblown, but then again I never followed their relationship too closely. In any case, Doc was dominant, as usual, going 9 full, as usual, scattering 5 hits. Scott Rolen had 3 RBI.

Let's get this day started. I'M BACK BABY.

Wait, did I miss something? Did you over-season rotten meat and poison us before you left?

That was an awful call, but that didn't make Jeff Bennett walk Castro and Beltran in the 10th.

LET ME JUST SPEAK MY PIECE AND CLEAR MY HAIR ON THIS ONE FIRST THANKS OBVIOUSLY THE EAST COAST BIAS RUNS DEEP IN BASEBALL THATS WHY TEAMS LIKE US FROM THE SOUTH NEVER GET A FAIR HANDSHAKE ON CALLS AGAINST EASTERNERS LIKE THE METS OR THE CUBS BECAUSE IT IS IN THE LEAGUES BEST INTEREST FOR THOSE GUYS TO DO WELL THATS WHY THEY ALWAYS CONTEND BUT ITS FUNNY I NEVER REMEMBER THERE BEING ANY PROBLEMS IN BASEBALL FROM 91 TO 05 WHEN WE MADE THE PLAYOFFS 14 TIMES AND SINCE THEN THERE HAVE BEEN DRUGS AND CHEATS AND GHOSTS

IM JUST SAYING

Johnny Cash does an absolutely amazing cover of "Four Strong Winds" on American V:A Hundred Highways.

Chief,

That's the version I was listening to on my way to the coffee shop this morning. Unspeakably great as most of that stuff is. He made Desperado sound amazing for God's sake.
