MLB Playoffs - Day 4 (AL only)

A "rivetting battle continues" as Australia and India's cricket teams continue to kick the shit out of each other. "As it has been through five previous days of rivetting cricket, the battle remains evenly poised at the end of Day 1 of the second Test," reports cricbuzz.com. "The end result was that after the first session, Australia were 95/0," -- a result most JoSers were able to predict even when they weren't particularly high.

"Watson...scored yet another half-century. Zaheer had bowled well, Sreesanth had been good but evidently was not at full rhythm after a long lay-off, while Harbhajan and Ojha had got prodigious turn, which would have given the Indians some hope, and some cause for worry at the thought of batting last on this pitch." Ish was unable to travel to the match and take pictures, but Allan was said to be scoring the game on a poster-sized piece of paper covered with something more than ten little charts.

In other, less interesting news, Texas (behind the starting pitching effort of young Colby Lewis) was leading Tampa (featuring Matt Garza, the subject of many fawning compliments by Joy of Sox posters) by a score of 1-0 after four innings.

Starting around 5:37 EST, a fuckin' bunch of non-union hard-ons will continue their push toward another World Series against a team that has a really nice new stadium and apparently not that much else going for them. That's Phil Hughes v. Brian Duensing.

I love this from the first link: "[Harbhajan and Ojha] took Australia safely through to tea at 189/3".

TEA!

When we were in London in 1998, I watched a bit of cricket. After a few days, I had a slight inkling of what was going on. I could see getting into it.

We have the Blue Angels flying over town today. I figure we pay for that shit, we may as well see it flying around once a year.

The Rays are going to have plenty of time to take their tea if they keep this up.

tim said...

but will it be terry francona's preferred tea for the rays?

that may have been a blown call. looked really close, but joyce may have beat the tag.

Umpiring has been whacked. TB ties but can't do any more damage.

Fucking Yankees.

The Twins got ahead in the first two games but couldn't hold it, and now they look dead in the water, like they're the Toledo Mud Hens and the Yankees are the Yankees.

Meanwhile, Atlanta came back to beat the Giants last night (after I had gone to sleep), and what the hell, Feliz? Shut those FUCKIN RAYS down!

In news that is more interesting than the current Yankees game but less interesting than the cricket, here are Llamas with Hats.

the twins have had the lead in the last 9 playoff games with the mfy -- and lost 8 of the 9.

Topic: Old people should not be allowed to drive

Just saw footage on the news of some 83 year old in Glendale, CA, driving his car through a fucking concrete wall two stories up and crashing to the ground. Unfortunately, Darwin wasn't around and he/she survived.

That must've been one hell of an old person car to plow through an 18 inch concrete wall. My Toyota Matrix would've crumpled to shit.

redsock said...

and the 3rd out. fuck you.

i WILL call you twinkies.

Ish said...

Fucking Twinkies, fucking useless.
