Screw the Yankees AND the Phillies, I'd rather have my head torn apart in a reverse bear trap like in those Saw movies, than watch the two teams I hate the most in the Worst Series. There's either a Lightning or Magic game during each baseball game anyway.

This is madness! This! Is! Garza! I love it when pitchers hit a batter and then talk about how it was no accident. If I remember correctly, he also said he hit Pedroia on purpose in Game 7 of the ALCS.

So he used his mask to bring the ball a little closer to him? Big deal. They weren't in the middle of a play. Of course time wasn't called, so technically play is still ongoing, but you have to let that go. Nothing was happening. No one is getting an unfair advantage because of it. It's trivial. It's a 5-run game in the 9th inning. It's like Jeff Nelson (the home plate umpire) thought the tides would have turned if he hadn't made the call. Give Hernandez a break.

Concert games usually start after 6pm. The game with Pat Benitar surprised me because it was at 7pm. And because of that blackout thing on Saturdays with FOX, no one gets to watch the game today because it doesn't start after 7pm.

I'm sure Jason Bay would get in if he were still a Pirate. /sarcasm

Coghlan apologized, but I got the impression that he was sorry someone got hurt, not that he was sorry he did something wrong, and that caused someone to get hurt. It was a horrible takeout slide. Not malicious, but just bad. All I wanted to hear him say was that he knew he messed up in the technique. He didn't even go in feet first. He just kind of fell on Aki's leg. That's not a slide.

This might be the dumbest fine I've seen someone on the Rays get since they fined Carl for "inappropriate actions" after going off at an umpire. This was the game where he beat out a play at first base because the guy who had the ball never even touched the base but they called Carl out, and Carl almost leap frogged George Hendrick to get to the umpire. When they said Carl acted inappropriately, I said that it was probably the most appropriate action in franchise history at the time. I could understand why they fined Joe here, IF they had fined Kerry Wood or Victor Martinez.

I didn't get to see on TV yesterday, so if it was a Rays fan, it's an understandable blunder. We all want to catch a ball right? Sometimes people forget that when you sit in the first or second row, balls that you can catch, can also be caught by the fielders. A lot of people forget this until after the play, just ask Steve Bartman, as mentioned before here. Does anyone know where that guy is right now? lol, it's the biggest secret in the country or something. What you need to do is try your best to knock the ball away from the other team's fielder, as long as he's reaching into the stands for it. That's legal, right? As long as you're not punching Youklis in the face, which I admit is very tempting.
