ho hum...another loss to the Yankees. We outhit them 8-4 but still manage to lose 3-2. Let's just forfeit tomorrow and give everyone a rest...(of course they have pretty much rested the last 3 days)
NOted with great disappointment the complete lack of emotion from Joe M as he made the final out of the game, swinging at a high inside pitch and popping out.

Would also like to vent on how stupid the 'save' stat is. Yesterday Rivera (who I begrudge nothing to) picked up the cheapest save there is....you come in with a 4 run lead, two outs and two on...and since the tying run is IN THE ON DECK CIRCLE you are eligible for a 'save'. Come ON...tying run in the ON DECK CIRCLE. What kind of crap thinking is that???? Plus..a 4 run lead? The stat, as currently, defined, is IMO just plain dumb..and the closer mentality that some managers have, hamstring them from making good game decisions.
OK vent over.
