I'm actually in a box for tomorrow night's game. Free tickets, free drinks, free food. I figure no matter what happens on the field I come out ahead.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

Don't forget to ask the hot dog guy if he has any Grey Poupon.

You'll be watching some of the worst baseball imaginable so it does come at a price - make up your own game - take a drink every time you see something that makes you say "I can't believe this guy is a major league player".

The Yankees are playing in Toronto on Sunday, followed by a double header in Baltimore on Monday. ESPN invoked their contractual right to push the Sunday game from 1:00 to 8:00. The Yankees are furious and are threatening to deny ESPN access to their players for all future game day interviews. I'm a little surprised that such access isn't in the contract.

I hate the Yankees, but that's screwed up.

I agree. The teams should have some right of refusal. That's just not right. It has nothing to do with the Yankees. That's just not a fair thing to do to the players.

Travel issues and day games after travel were an issue in the last CBA negotiations. I bet this comes up again for the next one.

The Yankees are playing a day-night double header in Detroit today. Here's how their 4th inning went:

HR
single
single
single
single
HR
Game over.
Change channel.

They can be shut down by quality pitching, but they have been annihilating mediocre pitching and there's quite a bit of that in MLB.

They have outscored their opponents 311 to 233. They have a league leading 90 team home runs already. Boston and Cleveland are nipping at their heels with 88 but I expect the Yankees to continue to outpace everyone. We'll see.

Herman Munster set a MLB record by striking out 8 times in a double header. The previous record has held up for over 100 years. Pretty impressive.

4Ks is a Golden Sombrero. I wonder what 8 is called. We need a name.

We need two names. He struck out 5 times in the second game alone.

According to Wikipedia, three Ks in a single game is a "hat trick", 4 is a "golden sombrero" and 5 is a "platinum sombrero".
