Toronto leading NY 6-5 in the 5th

Kevin said...

RX!!!!

Kevin said...

200 K!

Zenslinger said...

Things look good all over, especially if Lester can get Ramirez here.

Yanks melting down, Toronto up 11-5 on them now.

Texas down 6-0.

Let things continue rolling in this way and I will be a very happy boyo.

Zenslinger said...

Ooh, was Ramirez his 200th? Very nice.

Zenslinger said...

Man, Yanks' fifth is gettin' miserable. Third pitcher comes with the bases loaded and hits a guy. 12-5.

Kevin said...

Thunderous RBI!

Zenslinger said...

One's enough, I hope.

Zenslinger said...

OTT! I love you, Lester!

Kevin said...

So, Lester for the 7th
Wagner for the 8th
and Bot for the 9th

Kevin said...

Baltimore 7-0 over Texas final

Kevin said...

Sit

Kevin said...

And Sit

Kevin said...

Toronto 14-8 over NY final

Kevin said...

Ah shit

That was a huge fucking dong

Kevin said...

Alright, Bard to get the final out of the 8th, and then Bot for the 9th

Kevin said...

BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL!!!

Kevin said...

Hell, might as well let Bard pitch the 9th now so he can pick up a save.

Kevin said...

Hm, Bot in anyway

Kevin said...

WATER

Ish said...

WATERRRRRRR!

Zenslinger said...

Yay.

3 games up in the Wild Card is comfortable. 2 games is not. So, yay!

What a great day!
I've been very blue this week - Wed. was the 33rd anniversary of my marriage...........
Today everything got a little brighter. Had a long, therapeutic talk with my daughter last night, there was good music in the streets, the grandkids spent the night here, and today we spent the whole day running around together.
Then went to a nice benefit local art auction for a friend who has a child with MS.
Then to come home and find that the Sox win, the Skankies, the Dubyas, and the Satanic Rays all lose - well SHIT!
It doesn't get any better.
Actually I never doubted Lester would be the one to stop the bleeding, although HH deserved a better result than he got.
Now if Beckett can just BE an ace tomorrow........
