Through your own legs (not that he had any chance of fielding it).


Yeah that has to suck. He sticks his hand down three more inches and he has a perfect game.

Definitely sucks for him. Reminds me of Mike Mussina's near perfect game, though that outcome I preferred since he was a Yankee and it was against the Sox.

I remembered watching that game, so I looked it up. I completely forgot Cone pitched for Boston.

Yup, we had him for that one season. I remember it well, Carl "Dinosaurs didn't exist" Everett broke it up with two outs in the 9th as a pinch hitter. As I recall, it was the week before 9/11.

Yeah, I remember the Everett hit plain as day. It was the Sunday night game before Labor Day.

I'm really glad the Braves won the Justin Upton sweepstakes.

Ok so last year Baltimore was good in one run games and extra innings. This year it's 2 out runs scored. They scored 7 yesterday and 5 tonight with 2 outs.

I am so, so happy to have Reimold and Roberts back and healthy. :) Way to score on Rodney.

EDIT: 15,000 attendance? Seriously, Tampa?

*sigh* A great offensive day ruined by the bullpen being uncharacteristically awful. Seriously now, 3 leads given up?

Please Phillies, don't get swept by the Braves already, plenty of time for that to happen later.

Red Sox in solo first! I'm going to enjoy that feeling in case it's the last time all year. :D

They have looked pretty good the first two games, albeit against the corpse of the corpse of the Yankees. If Lester and Buchholz can return to form this year, it will go a long way towards fixing last season's woes.

I dunno if I'd say that. I kind of like the way this season has opened up so far. ;)

That'd be nice. Defeat the Braves every game the rest of the way, but I think it's clear that the Phillies need to reload.

There were that many people at AT&T park on opening day to watch the Giants... (Giants opened the season in LA and they were having a viewing party where the Giants play)



Winning 2 out of three in LA is pretty awesome. I have no idea how the Dodgers were barely able to score when Lincecum gave up SEVEN walks.



Also if anyone likes Baseball .gifs this is a pretty good place to get them.

Flukey. Does it even count? They're your run of the mill 84 win overachieving team. No one will remember a single position player on this team except Posey in 20 years unless Kung Fu Fatass breaks a leg circling 2nd base.



I see you're starting that "fluke" poppycock early this year.

The White Sox only had 14k people. The Nats only had 26k which considering the hype, newer stadium and team is just as bad. The braves has 24k, less than half full. A's 15k....

Unfortunately the Rays don't have the corporate sponsorship to BS their attendance numbers like certain teams do.

Last year the Orioles sold out opening day which was a Friday. The next day they had 31k. The third game they had under 15k people and that was a Sunday so chill out insulting the Rays attendance. It's no secret our attendance will suck until we get a new stadium

I honestly think it has to do more with the entire area for the Rays than just their turd of a stadium. New stadiums don't always solve attendance problems. IE, the Miami Marlins. A lot has to do with the market area and ownership/payroll/players.

Going to baseball games outside in April is not as fun as going to baseball games outside in July. I turned down Nats tickets myself last night.

Last Opening Day the Orioles weren't coming off a winning season and a playoff berth.

Probably because everyone already forgot they won.


Cardinal Nation hasn't forgotten, trust me. Cardinals have blown 3-1 leads in the NLCS & WS 3 times since I've been alive (85 WS, 96 NLCS, & 12 NLCS) and blown a 3-2 WS lead in 87.

The Cubs may be trying to showcase Marmol for potential trading partners, but he's not doing them any favors with the way he's started the year.

He didn't here last year, hence why everyone wanted Dan Duquette to get a big bopper. If only he had this 6 months ago...

33 HR and 85 RBIs in 139 games last year is more than solid.

Which is why DD didn't go out to get a big bopper.

Fun facts: CD is on a 10-game (reg season) homer streak. Also, Adam Jones has gotten on base all 3 games so far and the guy behind him hit a HR.
