Mo is coming back.

Mariano Rivera has a message for Yankee fans.

His career isn't going to end in a heap on the warning track of Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City after he blew out his right knee shagging flies in batting practice Thursday night.

"I am coming back," the Yankee legend told the media on Friday. "Write it down in big letters ... I'm not going out like this.

"I love to play the game. To me, going out like this isn't the right way."

The greatest closer of all time spoke a day after suffering a torn ACL in the freak pre-game accident.

West took the night off he has a cold.
Three umps for the game.
Phils had Victorino on second and I think it was Ruiz, grounded a ball that went right over the third base bag, wasn't even a question about it. Of The two umps, one was at first the other near second. It was the home plate umps call since there was no ump at third. He called it foul.
Victorino would have scored.
Couple of pitches later Victorino steals third, but no ump again, the one near second called him out. He was safe the guy didn't tag him.

Joe West's fault because he has a cold.

Derek Jeter now leading MLB in hitting with a .407 AVG (and is 8th in OPS at 1.053).

He is absolutely murdering lefthanded pitching to the tune of .583/.579/.861 (AVG/OBP/SLG); however with a 2 for 4 tonight those #'s will come down a bit. :lol:

Mark Teixeira is now 11 for 23 against Bruce Chen.... with 7 HR's. Is there a way he can pitch to Tex every day so he can get his average over .240?

It's bad enough the team sucks ass, but the best player in baseball the last decade suddenly forgets how to hit or take pitches? I love to blame Mickey "Hacker" Hatcher for this, but come on...

I know Pujols will start hitting soon...but until he does, I am enjoying this enormously.

Oh and the Angels are the new owners of a dubious MLB record. They are the first team in history to be shutout in 5 straight starts by a pitcher (Ervin Santana). Good job, boys :up:

Because he opitimizes everything that is wrong with today's society and culture... greed. He had the perfect situation in St. Louis; a championship team, a great community, great fans who were ready to erect a statue in his honor...and all he cared about was money. I know it's all about the money with most of today's athletes, but his situation really stank of it.

How much money do you f**king need...is a couple more million a year really going to have make a dramatic difference in your life when you are making 20 million per year?

I just see the growing and overwhelming emphasis on greed and materialism in this country and I shake my head....I guess someone like Pujols, who had the perfect situation in St Louis, just hit my sore spot .

Anyway, he will start hitting soon and will wind up the season with decent stats, so this is only a momentary enjoyment for me.

05-05-12, 09:05 AM
Yeah, the Angel's lack of production has been stunning. Poor Ervin Santana became the first pitcher in major league history to start five consecutive games, with his team being shut out in each game, and is now 0-6. You get the feeling if he threw another no-hitter it might not be enough for him to notch a "W" at this point.

Blown save for the Big Potato on Dunn's 8th HR of the year. Boy what a difference a year makes.

Santiago needs to not be in the 9th anymore. Reed nailed it down, but apparently Sale is going back to the bullpen to close. Not sure how I feel about that. He was a pretty good starter but apparently they're worried about his elbow. So I guess we're down a starter.

The key for the Braves seems to be Bourn at the top of the lineup. He started off slow this year, but is now hitting nearly .340. But as you said, while their offense has been surprising, the pitching has been as well for performing below expectations.

Why?



Sorry for psoting one more comment about this but I am still perplexed why someone would ask why.

Would you ask why if someone told you they were hoping LeBron James would fail when he went to Miami?

Not counting that ill conceived special by LeBron, Pujols decision was worse than LeBron's...at least LeBron can make the claim that he was trying to win a championship and was just trying to find the best situation to make that happen. Pujols simply wanted the most money he can get, didn't matter that he was leaving a championship team in the perfect baseball town where he was worshipped....money was king. Yet somehow Pujolds is given a pass and LeBron is vilified.

Anyway, I won't comment anymore...just amazing to me how greed has become normalized, accepted and sometimes even applauded in this country.

OK I don't normally correct words, but the word is "epitomizes"....

How do you know how and why he made his decision? There are a ton of factors which you have glossed over because you want to feed your narrative...

So Albert took the most money which is why he's now playing for the... Miami Marlins? (who offered him more money AND have no state tax which means the greedy bastard can keep more of it) Oh wait....
