In no specific order....
Not too many years ago, Torri Hunter would have caught JD Drew's triple last night. No doubet about it. And he didn't even lay hiimself all the way out trying to get it.
What is up with Okajima's head when he throws the ball. How does he hit the target if he is not even looking at it.
And what is the deal with the Lugo crotch grabbing. And the Brendan Donnelly crotch grabbing as well.
Where are all the naysayers now on the Beckett deal. Sure, Hanley is having another great season (maybe even better), but Annibel has walked 19 guys in 30 innings and is back in AAA. Meanwhile Beckett has bee pretty good this year.
Speaking of Beckett..... Last year through 6 starts. 3HR. This year. Only 1.
I was going to touch on Pavano as well. It is hard to resist the temptation to gloat, but with all these injuries, and with all that cash, I worry about what the Yanks will do. Dontrelle? A chance on Harden?
that was an interesting stop and stare at the HR by many on Thursday.... I'm surprised the next batter (I think it was Youk) did not get a fastball in the back.
Drinking and driving kills. We all know that. but I really don't like the angle with which this story is being portrayed. Frist it was whispers of what was he doing in that neighborhood. Now it is whole drinking in the clubhouse. The saddest part is that this was someone's life.
An unassisted triple play and 4 HR in a row all in one + week. Nice.
This morning's AL East standings are pretty neat. Boston alone in first. And all four other teams 6.5 games back.
