Game 18: Spotlight

Was yesterday's 16-11 shitshow the worst game ever? It was far too nice out to spend four hours and twenty one minutes in front of the TV yesterday, so I only saw about 15 of the lead changes. Let's take a lazy Sunday stroll around the blogoverse and see what we missed, shall we?
  • PeteAbe tells us that it was only the second game in franchise history that the Yankees lost by 5 or more runs after leading by 6 or more

  • Kim Jones got her wish for 9 innings, but somehow I don't think that was quite what she had in mind
All is not lost, friends. A win tonight and the Yanks can salvage some dignity, stop the Sox 9 game win streak, and stay above .500 on the season. Andy Pettitte takes the hill against Justin Masterson, who is off to a good start filling in for Matsuzaka.

The rivalry shifts to primetime tonight, or as some might call it, the Spotlight.

(Not a huge DMB fan, but that's a pretty cool version of that song, which he hasn't played live since 1993)

Regardless of your rooting affiliations, I'm sure you are you are thrilled by the inevitability of being entertained by the vocal stylings of Jon Miller, the flawless logic of Steve Phillips and of course the sage insights of Joe Morgan. If you hear anything egregious, feel free to preserve it in eternity by dropping it in the comments section.

Just remember this it's not only an East Coast thing.


  1. There is absolutely nothing interesting or relevant about this Joe....

    John Miller: "And now here is Youk, against the rookie Mark Melancon, Melancon was death on right handed hitters in the minor leagues earlier this year with Scranton-Wilkes Barre, Triple A, he is facing the right handed hitter who happens to be leading the American League in hitting right now, Kevin Youklis, Youklis is 0-2 with a walk tonight'

    Joe Morgan: "John, another guy that used to hit 4th for the Red Sox, Jim Rice is going to the Hall of Fame this year, he was elected this year, he's going in"

    John Miller: "Long overdue"

    Joe Morgan: "Yep, I think that's interesting"
