Ryan who? Mooooore...

Two homers & a single off Sabathia? Really? What's up with that?

Oh, yeah. And this guy? 4 and 0. Oh.

"Major League Baseball has uncovered what they believe is evidence that a representative of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez purchased medical records from Biogenesis -- the South Florida anti-aging clinic that allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to several major league players, according to Michael S. Schmidt of The New York Times."

The original New Times story is here.

We wuz robbed!

Here it is... even the other team thought it was a ball...  One wonders, since it ended up being Joe Nathan's 300th save, if the umps just wanted to give it to him last night.
 It's the red one, outside the lower left hand corner of the box. That's the called "strike."  

I'll let this guy tell the sob story.
What really galls is that the ump admits the bad call the next day, when nothing can be done about it. I say, bottom of the 9th, potential for changing the score, 2 outs.... use the freakin' replay.  I know the umps are a "wild card" part of the game, but flagrant miscalls against one side and not the other is just plain cheating. And we know how much MLB cares about that!

Plus... Niemann's out. Whew.

A. L. East

Holy cow. Keith Olbermann is on the Rays bandwagon, too. Interesting analyses. Except today, he's got the Rays losing the Series to the GNats. {Do not read the comments.} He references this Topkin article on how the Rays work.

But you know what they say about opinions.

This does not compute.

Opening day pitcher for Kansas City. Dog my catz.
Too bad, Shieldsy. Hate losing those 1-run squeakers. Looks like it was a good game, a little chilly for you...
