Yeah, Chavvy really pulled through in extra innings..

I'm going to the RSox/A's game tonite to see Dice-K in person for the first time.

The a's have trouble against the Red Sox normally so it was a surprise we won that one last night.

I predict a big night for Buck.

btw, i've been reading this dice-k blog since the beginning of the season. the guy lives in japan and is a baseball nut. loves the yankees but really loves dice-k too.

the crazy thing is that he's predicted dice-k's performance almost exactly for every game. it's uncanny. the guy could seriously make a ton of money on some sports betting. i think these are the type of guys that become oddsmakers in vegas.

Ha, Miz I was on there earlier today. I used to read it a lot more when we were in the hunt for him.

Dustin Pedroia is MLB Rookie of the Month after Okajima was for April.

nerdy fantasy baseball question:

I'm currently in first place in 1 of fantasy baseball leagues......

someone just dropped johnny damon..i expected him to have a great season after last year, but nagging injuries have hurt him and the yanks are even DHing him cause he cant run very well in the OF

so do you think i drop Armando Benitez, who after his balk meltdown was traded by the SF Giants to the marlins and is now in a set up roll (although i think there is a good chance he will become closer eventually..) and put in a waiver for Johnny Damon, who i do think has upside and i need steals.

my current OF is:

Beltran

Berkman (sucking ass so far too)

Eric Byrnes

and

Granderson and Wiggington who i slot in and out of the Util spot........

i should probably post this on some fantasy board but i dont go on those......

My Cardinals are absolutely pathetic this season, good to see King Albert getting somewhat back on track though batting near 300. Hate to say it, but he's another prime example of the post-roids regression.

Regardless, it's been so fucking satisfying watching the Bankee's suck it up night it and night out.

Who the fuck saw the last inning of that Giants/Mets game last night? That was seriously the strangest 20 minutes of baseball i've ever seen...

Benetiz look like he wanted to shoot himself when the game ended.

i guess i missed this... care to explain?

dunkin deeznuts - Benitez might close again with the Marlins but I think I would rather pick up someone like Brad Lidge who has been pretty good since his demotion from closer. Even if Lidge doesn't become Houston's closer again, he'll pile up a lot of K's and maintain a low era. Okajima is also a good option (I've got him in my team). While Papelbon is the main closer, Oki is brought in for a couple of save situations from time to time, and he racks up a lot of K's.

Brooklyn Zoo - Benitez basically blew the game by balking twice in one inning.

yeah GH..i looked into picking up Lidge, especially with the problems that Wheelers been having...but Lidge was taken....

and Okijimas not a bad option......

^^^ many in japan are predicting that batters in the mlb will figure out okajima's funny delivery.

btw, i have to say that gameday 2007 is one of the illest pieces of software i have ever seen. it's almost as good as watching the game on tv. well, not really.

Bah... I tip my cap to the A's, but I think we win tonight.

Sucks that Wakefield won't pitch in the dome in Arizona. I think he could beat up on the DBacks...They do play in a dome right?

Schilling's post game comments:

"We needed to win today, above everything else, so it was very easy to stay focused on what [we're] trying to accomplish, which was to win the game. The fact that they had no hits going into the seventh, eighth, ninth reflected executing the game plan, but the focus was winning the game. We hadn't won the last couple of days, [so it was a] big win for us."

"I was sure [stewart] was taking. Tek was sure he was swinging. I was wrong."

"I felt good later in the game. I thought velocity-wise I got better as the game went on, stuff-wise I got sharper. I made some mistakes earlier, they hit some balls right at people defensively. We made some great plays. Fun game to be a part of."

Whoa, I didn't see that one comin from the Phillies...

Also, who puts a guy with a 13 era in 1 game up against Arod with the bases loaded in the top of the 9th, Guillen deserved that one. (Bukvich now has a 27 era!)

Congrats to Schilling and the Bo Sox for that 1-hitter. I wish we got more Red Sox games here on the left coast.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers just got swept by the Padres...blew a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th inning. We almost had a win over Peavy!!! :mad:
