@alexis_b82 @Tom Miles It was magnificent, wasn't it? Not quite Block standard though, obvs.
Stop. Nava time.
Solo ding wins it right here, folks. Nostrathomas has spoken.
Hanrahanrananrahan looks doughy and vulnerable to me. Closers need to be either INTENSE or IMPASSIVE, n'est-ce pas?
@Sox on the Beach Ha! And that comment ISN'T 'malformed'? Worst software ever. (Not that the original sentiment isn't heartfelt, obvs.)

@Sox on the Beach @Tom Miles I love you and want to do despicable things to you.
mlb.com coverage is cool. They just showed Don and Jerry's proleptic summary of the game (recorded into camera and presuming nothing untoward happens in the bottom of the ninth). x

@Jennie Nostrathomas is never wrong.

I have a minor man crush on Sweeney.
Papi says "Fuck you, Bieber!"
@hannah82 You're full of shit.
Also, sports hernia sounds like the name of a bad satirical website.
The SG hive mind would do a better job managing this team. Just him somewhere.

Was anyone else going "Don't swing, take the walk"?
Livefyre sucks donkey balls. Can we not get haloscan back? And Kyle Snyder. And Leskanic.

I'm not sure I want to ride on a vehicle built by an old photo of a baseball player. Because it's not 1968 and I don't see Timothy Leary anywhere hereabouts. But I am sighing and getting over it. This position is not incompatible with wanting to slap John Lackey, however. He may be 6-4 since the ASB but his ERA in that period is around 9.00. Simply not good enough. He should retire or at the very least take a sabbatical and spend more time with his family.

@bjchit Really? It was a foot inside the batter's box. Nothing to see here, just McCarver bullshit.
I've seen the future and it works.
How's your ERA looking now, fat boy?
Oregon HR would be cool.
@Jennie Vindicated. A walk really is as good as a home run.

@Jennie Did Svcoots score?
Quick rundown of the scoring please. I was reading a bedtime story and missed it.
@English Sox Fan I remember arriving back from Edinburgh from the festival about fifteen years ago. Sunny and warm in Scotland, fabulous. Disembarked at King's Cross and nearly melted in the heat.
@Sharpie Man, Svcoots played in Oakland for years. He knows that BB>/=HR.
@English Sox Fan @GarrettCRW Like this?
ESF, I hope you didn't spend the whole of this beautiful day in the car?
@GarrettCRW He's rillymadaboutitfuckshitcock.
@Tex19 Done. And he's Svcoots forever if he goes yard.
In other news, Man with Tourette's Swears a Lot:-
Leadoff homer for Svcoots. Next Inning. I'm calling it. Sharpie and I are NEVER WRONG.
Sharpie and I are NEVER WRONG.
Svcoots HR. I'm calling it.
Oh, big man.
But Sammy was on more PEDs than Keith Richards, so it doesn't count.
Whatever the outcome of this situation I think everyone should know that Andrew Miller is the motherfucking truth. We now have two evil lefties who will fuck your shit up. (Apologies for the obscenity but I feel that, in context, it is necessary.)
Darnell, your cousin is such an asshole.
Reddick is a monster waiting to happen. Give him some ABs against lefties and he won't be significantly worse than McD or MikeOld.

3 years ago on The Adventures of Ellsbury ‘n’ Elf: Mike Timlin Solves the John Lackey Problem
Your concerns about Drew's defence are ill-founded at best. He'll end up around .270 and his OBP will be just shy of .400. At present there's no need to meddle with anything. Continuity is key in team sports. That is all.

Hot bouncy girl behind home has my vote.
@hayes Seems that way but there are statistics to disprove it.

You have to say though, that Salty is a bit ABERCROMBIEMODELWATBATEBAWGAM and the new pitching coach looks considerably more like a janitor than Greek God John Farrell. Me, I'd like to win exactly 62 of the unaccounted-for games. In order to do this more than two of our line-up need to perform on any given night. I fully expect Daisuke to flipping kill tonight. I will be asleep, wearing a skimpy, yet elaborate costume.

Fuck you Rangers, I rooted for the Giants. They had that Panda guy and the stoner and Matt Cain. That's right, I rooted for Barry Bonds over you guys. Hurts, doesn't it. Machikne.
Dennys Reyes hated the 1980's. Just couldn't keep a snood on.
Well, either we suck or they're cheating.
@YDDE Tom says there's winning, and there's winning with grace.
Carl, nice. You still owe me $5.
That's the ridiculous curve I remember from his minor years.

6-3. Need a Mo meltdown.
5-3. Tigers bullpen uninspiring.
Granderson hit one a mile. 4-3 Yankees.
Swisher got a terrible call. Posada wanted Verlander called for a balk. Ump explained that no-one really understands that rule so he should just let it go. Still 3-3. Here's Joba.
A-Rod embarassed jogging out of the box on a HR that wasn't.
Joba warming. His face like a guilty grey balloon.
Actually he flied out, but I just assumed... Still tied in the Bronx. Jeter still hitless. A-Rod still a reprehensible waste of DNA.
Brandon and his angry Inge doubles towards the gap in left but Avila strikes out to end the threat. Because that's what he does.
Michael Kay just said 'rimming'.
Sweet diving catch from Rayburn denies Ed Hardy aficionado / whore, Russell Martin. Jeter is 0-3. Mysteriously his second inning error has not been recorded as such. News at eleven.
Miguel Cabrera ties the game 3-3 with a sac fly.
I'm working on a ALCS comment count all by myself.
Avila, the Tigers' catcher should be batting eleventh.
Brandon and his angry Inge brings it back to 2-3 MFYs.
Well fuck. 3-run homer from Teixiera.
LOL Jeter Defence costs MFYs first run of the year, driven in by fatface Jhonny P. 0-1 Tigers. Also, Heyward homered. He's on pace to hit 600HR this year.
I'm ready like Freddie. Lynn. For those who don't Facebook:-
