Back In The Bandbox, pt. 2

So.. anyone still have a problem with it?

Me too.

Side Notes:

- I’m still in awe of that Pluto shot by Russell Branyan, off the glass of the Mohegan Sun sports bar.. sick.
Thought A-Rod would be the first to hit it there, but must give the guy
credit. Came one strikeout shy of two back-to-back nights with the
Golden Sombrero so he was due for some redemption.

- Have to quote a tweet by Ross, of New Stadium Insider, regarding Joe G. riding Aceves’ magic for a bit too long. “He is bi-polar with his managing. One night he micromanages, the next he autopilots.” Can’t be summed up any better than that. [Aceves was stellar before that mistake though..]

- Also in the category of what-the-hell, who
was that in the 5-hole? Seemed oddly reminiscent of the old Robbie
Cano, but my eyes must deceive me.. Will praise him when he picks up
one of those hits with the game on the line.

- And who was the guy in the 7-spot? Return of Godzilla? Would be about damn time.. Just sayin’.

- Your Quick Bit Of Hilarity:
Apparently the Subway Series never ends, because we got another Met
moment, courtesy of Ichiro Suzuki dropping one in right. Fans at the
stadium naturally let him have it on the next pop up hit his direction,
and after catching it to end the inning Ichiro exacted some revenge with a
not so smart move. Unlike Suzuki, Castillo took it like a man. Fake
ball toss to the stands? Bush league Ichiro, bush league.

- The latest celeb at the stadium.. Jack Nicholson. Had the best seat in the house, sitting right behind home plate. Supposedly had a ball being on the big screen in the ballpark. Did not partake in the wave. Good man.

Leader Of The Crapfest:

6 earned runs allowed on 10 hits through 5.2 innings..
Forget you were facing the Mariners?

- In other news.. Kyle Blanks couldn’t handle a bit of bees? C’mon.. Joba had midges making a home on his neck.. Be a man.. Speaking of, Padres get a delay [lasting all of 52 minutes]
in the 9th inning of a game they obviously weren’t going to win, but
the Yanks were to forced to just suck it up [it the middle of the ALDS]? Death to Bruce Froemming.. [If he happens to pass any time in the near future, I never said this..]

On Deck: Mr. Badazz facing Brian Tallet to start a four game series with Toronto. Got more one-hit stuff in the tank?

Ichiro could take some lessons from Milton Bradley on how to properly throw the ball in the stands…. hopefully with less than three outs and people on base. You think the Japanese have a word for “bush league”? I dunno. At least your Crapfest leader makes a lot of noise (when he’s cashing his check that is ;-)

You make a great point about the bees/midges. I’m still mad that Torre didn’t pull the team off the field and insist on a delay! Hilarious shot of that beekeeper though. And I loved Ross’s Tweet too. Dead on.

At least someone was making use of the seats behind homeplate! :-)
