Without You: Today's Afternoon Games

| | Comments (17)
  • Brewers at Reds, 12:35: So, yeah. First place Reds. 8-1 in their last 9 games. They're on such a roll that even Homer Bailey (today's starter) pitched a CG shutout last time out, albeit against the Pirates. Former WoW Favorite Manny Parra makes his first start of the year moving from the bullpen.

  • Twins at Blue Jays, 12:37: Minnesota took the first game of this series 8-3, but today run up against Shaun Marcum. He's like a Phoenix. Rising from Arizona. His WHIP is under one, he's striking out a handful of guys each game, and has been getting sporadic run support. Then again, Justin Morneau has 3 hits in 5 lifetime at bats against him. And two of them were ding dongs. And he's got 3 in last two games. WHO WILL GIVE?

  • White Sox at Tigers, 1:05: Rick Porcello makes what I believe to be his 20th afternoon start of the year. What's the opposite of a vampire? He's that. The Tigers lit him up for 5 in 5 in his first appearance againt them this year. Freddy Garcia goes for the White Sox, he of the 179 career IP against Detroit. Magglio Ordonez alone has faced him 45 times. The Tigers are two games back of the Twins.

  • Snakes at Fish, 1:10: The Marlins dropped last night's game 5-1 (WAY TO SUPPORT THE IMMIGRANTS) . The Snakes have been hitting up a storm lately, but nobody makes a fool outta Josh Johnson. I bet he strikes out ten guys today.

  • Indians at Rays, 1:10: Tampa is still rolling. They've currently racked up three in a row and it's not like the Indians are gonna do anything to stop them. Especially with David Price on the hill. IN 7 starts he's gone less than 6IP only once and has yet to give up more than 3ER. The Indians counter with David Huff who has given up 15 runs in his last 16IP. And his last name is Huff. GO CAVS!!!11!!

You guys probably haven't been following this, but Assdribble Cabrera broke his arm last night. Jason Donald has been called up from Columbus and may or may not make it in time to play.

"The Tigers lit him up for 5 in 5 in his first appearance againt them this year."

Kris, how did the Tigers light Porcello up?

Paul Janish starting at third for the Reds!

Kris, how did the Tigers light Porcello up?

Very carefully.

I usually light my Porcello up in a bowl, but sometimes I'll roll it up

Nice to see Carl Pavano pitching like Carl Pavano today.

The Blue Jays are wearing their powder blue throwback jerseys today. Awesome.

Even if Catshirt meant the White Sox lit him up earlier this year he'd be wrong.


I think that it was a metaphor for the Tamil conflict in Sri Lanka.

Jerkwheat, let's cut Catshirt some slack today. He is obviously still trying to recover from Papelbon's performance in the Bronx last night.

/watches 9th inning hi-lites from last nights Yankees game

still trying to recover from Papelbon's performance...
...that he saw on SC bc he was busy throwing his panties @ Eddie Vedder @ the time

/turns away from 9th inning hi-lites

The Hanley Ramirez-less Fish have plated 7 against the Snakes today. Josh Johnson has struck out 9 batsmen in 7 scoreless innings.

My favorite Hanley quote during this saga?

Asked about his ankle, he said: “That’s OK. [Fredi Gonzalez] doesn’t understand that. He never played in the big leagues.”

I literally yelped "OH SNAP" when I read that. Unrelated: I work for the Ricki Lake show.

@nick, oh no he did'n! He might as well have said he doesn't slap the dick out of Fredi Gonzalez' mouth and tell him how to do his job.

Trevor Hoffman fucking blows

Fredi Gonzalez, obviously a WoW reader/haterrr, pulled Johnson after 7 so that he couldn't reach the predicted 10 Ks.

@uu Hanley was just pissed because the paternity test came in and he is NOT the father.

I want to thank you for generating a excellent post. I never commonly comment on weblogs but I felt like I required to because you made such a superior energy posting this very good data. Thank you and I'll be back once again! I invite you to see my post, I hope you will find interesting too.
