Buck and McCarver tell us Rivera will pitch the 8th and 9th tonight. The only good news is the Phils will have the heart of the order up in the 9th.

I should mention, for the record, that I really hate the Phillies. Yesterday was the first day I ever rooted for them. I'm still figuring out how it works. Are soul patches cool in Philadelphia?

A well executed hit-and-run by Cabrera puts runners at 1st and 3rd with nobody out, and Posada is pinch-hitting for Molina. This is where things get ugly. Chan Ho Park enters the game for Pedro.

Odd as this sounds, if Park allows the inherited runners to score, Pedro's final line will look a lot like my prediction.

Hahahahaha. Jeter the Bitch just struck out trying to bunt with two strikes. A moral victory if ever there was one. Eyre in to pitch to Damon.

Damon lines into a controversial double play. What does the peanut gallery think about that one?


  1. The east coast peanut gallery's vision is slightly impaired by oktoberfest beer and after 6,342 replays of the line drive still can not claim to know if it hit the ground or not. Where I come form, tie goes to the runner (any tie, even in football), thuslyyyyy, Posada is safe but somehow Damon is out. It's in the rulebook somewhere.

    Shirt... are you watching on channelsurfing.net?

  2. Through a dubious pact with the TV netherworld, I am able to see Fox in my home now. Actually, I have no idea how it happened, but last week Fox came in clean and clear for the first time ever. I'm hoping it'll stay that way long enough for me to get hooked on that shitty Melrose Place re-do.

  3. That's great news about getting Fox. Even better news: Melrose Place is on the CW, so you don't have to worry about it.

    Prediction: Manuel is so impressed with Pedro's performance that he brings him back on 3 days' rest to pitch Game 5 in Philly.
