The Toronto Blue Jays have allowed four runs the last two nights total from innings one thru eight hosting the AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays. But, they've allowed 10 in inning nine the last two nights. Yep, Cito Gaston is back. The Jays blew a 3-1 lead and lost 7-3.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga, who was robbed in the ninth by a horrible call which you can see here at the bottom of today's entry, was actually beat out for a rotation spot by Dontrelle Willis. Remember him? Willis was dealt to Arizona for next to nothing. To his credit, Galarraga has been classy about umpire Jim Joyce severe error, but come on, that's a joke.
Speaking of "remember", remember when Tampa Bay Ray Carlos Pena was even a decent player?
It took 24 innings over two nights for the LA Dodgers to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, both 1-0 scores over 10 and 14 inning games.
Hard to believe, but the New England Patriots are letting Tom Brady enter his last year of his contract and aren't talking extension. I know they're not a team to be bullied by any player, but Tom Brady isn't just an ordinary player, is he? Might Brady jump ship?
Is there anybody anywhere that would've guessed the two Yankee pitchers most likely to head to the All-Star Game this year would have been Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes? Hughes-es is now 7-1 on the year after another stellar start last night.
Looks like Liverpool may be rid of Manager Rafa Benitez after all, as he is said to be ready to accept a £3 million buyout. Next stop, Juventus?
Didn't Jose Canseco once out Roger Clemens as a steroid user? So how is it he's part of Rocket Roger's defence?
