The Cubs tossing Zambrano in the pen was bonkers. Sure, he's been erratic this season, but his previous seven seasons speaks larger volumes. I still cannot wrap my mind around that rash move. The guy is a horse, and his slider is still as filthy as ever...as I can attest in The Show '10!  :P

I thought it was a brilliant play. The idea is to win the game after all.

That could be the dumbest thing I have ever heard a baseball player utter.

So the Orioles have how many wins now? 7?

And how many of them were against the Red Sox? 4???

Things are "interesting" in the AL East to say the least.

2-0 in the month of May! Which is tops in the AL East!  :P
Nice to finally string together a few wins.  I'm so glad April is over.   ;D

Our next 7 will be tough ones though (3 @ Yankees and 4 @ Twins).

Hopefully we can squeak a few wins out of those seven games and keep this train a rollin'!   :highfive:

Wow, 2 outs, bases loaded, the old pitcher Moyer at the plate and Santana can't get the ball over the plate?  Then the floodgates break wide open, gotta love it.....

This could be the most awesome thing ever to happen at a baseball game.    Phillies-Cards, important early game and idiot frat boy jumps out of the stands onto the field.   Gee, what could POSSIBLY happen?

I wonder if he was screaming "Don't Taze Me Bro?"

I listened to that game at work on Sunday night, and that was some meltdown by Johan.

Did anyone catch this gem from the weekend, and furthermore, have you seen anyone do this before? This is mind-blowingly bad on Byrnes' behalf...

...and if that couldn't have gotten anymore surreal, the HP-Umpire called it a ball segueing into Ron Washington's ejection. Just unreal, and Byrnes was released yesterday.  :D

Normally a suicide squeeze blown that bad ends in a run down, the dropped ball made that one interesting.

Last nights Phillies game was bizarre, that interference call was bad (if anything Pujols ran into Blanton trying to catch the bad throw), not sure about the call at 3rd, and when a kid runs onto the field a cop doesn't feel like running after him so just pulls out his taser.

Almost every game I still miss Harry Kallas, with all these guys gone there's no one still around that comes even close, even with the 30 second radio delay I still listen to the radio while the game is on the TV, you get used to watching the play and then hearing it later....  Can't stand the TV guys, the radio guys are OK, Larry Anderson is pretty fun to listen to (especially when the umps are blowing calls).

Hell of a game tonight, Cole pitching more like the Cole of '08, great time for Chuch to get his first home run of the year, they got him with the shaving cream twice during the TV interview after the game...

Eric Byrnes is now playing beer league softball & loving it.  (He's still getting paid 11 million by the D-backs.)

That's kind of awesome.  Sure it's not the MLB, but you gotta love playing beer league ball for 11 million bucks!

Rod Beck (and his trailer he kept parked outside the Iowa Cubs stadium) would be proud.
