    Such summitry.

  2. Phil C

    DAMN!!!! No hitter through 7 and now MLBN is going to break away to show that game in the bottom of the 8th.

  3. smurfy

    Brett Cecil was wearing matching blue glasses and bulbous, fishlike mouthpiece. Effective diversion.

    • Phil C

      An ERA over 5 and the Yanks only get 2 hits in 2 innings!!!!!

  4. Professor Longnose

    Russell Martin will come through.

  5. Professor Longnose

    Told ya!

    • Phil C

      To celebrate I went postal and applied a stamp to an envelope.

      • Professor Longnose


  6. smurfy

    My, quelle surprise! Martin fulfilled your call, Professor.

    • Professor Longnose

      A broken commenter is right twice a blog. Or something like that.

  7. Professor Longnose

    Rays-White Sox is a real pennant-race game. The Yanks are battling the Orioles, but they’re both mopping up against teams playing out the string.

  8. Professor Longnose

    You can see the Blue Jays mentally checking out of the game.

  9. smurfy

    Time to recruit a new mountie.

  10. Phil C

    No hits through 8. At least MLBN switched back to the Yanks until Homer pitches the bottom of the 9th.

    • Professor Longnose

      Sheesh, who cares? There have been so many no hitters lately. Anyone who’s interested can catch the highlights.

  11. Phil C

    No way A-Rod passes Aaron and Bonds.

    • Professor Longnose

      For homers? Not if he doesn’t get healthy and good, and stay that way.

  12. Phil C

    The FC’s batted .417 vs Oki-san tonight.

    • Professor Longnose

      Just toying with them.

  13. Phil C

    Why do you want to know?

    • Professor Longnose

      Third base!

      • Phil C

        Costello: Now I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is drops the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to What. What throws it to I Don’t Know. I Don’t Know throws it back to Tomorrow—a triple play.

        Abbott: Yeah, it could be.

        Costello: Another guy gets up and it’s a long fly ball to Because. Why? I don’t know. He’s on third, and I don’t care!

        Abbott: What was that?

        Costello: I said, I DON’T CARE!

        Abbott: Oh, that’s our shortstop!

  14. Phil C

    Nice. 2 pitches, 2 outs.

  15. Phil C

    Well, he’s now called No No Homer.

  16. Phil C

    Top 5th, bleached foot wear leads Lung Disease 2-1!

    • Professor Longnose

      That’s not good for the Yankees.

      • Phil C

        Lung Disease owes the Yanks for last year!

        • Professor Longnose

          Yeah. They HAVE to beat Baltimo’.

  17. smurfy

    Boy, Kay muffed two plays in a row. Can’t see straight. Erasmus picked it off the ground while he’s yelling about a catch, and now claims Kelly Johnson loafed on that bouncer he coralled and got in to home post haste.

    • Professor Longnose

      The Rasmus play was obvious–he picked the ball up off the ground.

  18. Phil C

    Eppley’s Believe It or Not. Tonight, as the Monkey’s and Neil Diamond would say, “I’m a Believer.”

  19. Phil C

    Is the banjo on his knee?

  20. Phil C

    I love it, Yanks lead 8-2, but each has 10 hits.

  21. Professor Longnose

    Tomorrow: Yanks at 1:00, Rays at 4:00, O’s at 7:00.

  22. Phil C

    Why is Phleps still in there? They may need him on Tues.

    • Professor Longnose

      Looks like not. I guess Girardi wants to save the pen more than he distrusts Nova.

  23. Phil C

    Ugh! S#@T!

    • Professor Longnose

      Yanks will get it back.

  24. Phil C

    Here we go Loup de Loup.

    • Phil C

      Now that’s a loup hit.

      • Professor Longnose

        I just switched to radio, so I didn’t see it.

      • smurfy

        a louper

  25. smurfy

    gee, the stolen base was worth the risk, afterall. Bet Ichi was real sure of having it, too, tho you recall an out there a week ago, and another except for poor handling.

  26. Phil C

    Gose goes back to make the catch. Gotta love the names on some of these players.

    • Professor Longnose

      Who Gose on first?

      • Phil C

        What gives on second?

        • Professor Longnose

          I don’t know!

  27. Professor Longnose

    I used to have a poster of that bit. I love A&C.

    • Phil C

      Living in Houston and I REALLY love A/C!

      • Professor Longnose

        You’re a slippery one.

  28. Phil C

    Gose watches as the ball goes out!

  29. smurfy

    Amos Lee has a neat old voice and a good band over on 13, the Artist’s Den. Nice banjo and harmonica, too.

  30. Phil C

    Sori? For one out? Am I having an LSD flashback?

  31. Phil C

    Game Ovah!!!

    • Professor Longnose

      I actually underestimated the Yankees in my prediction.

      • Phil C

        Keep it up!

  32. Phil C

    188 pitches by the Frozen Cousins tonight.

  33. Phil C

    Chat y’all tomorrow!

  34. Professor Longnose

    Good night. See you tomorrow.
