    K-Rod got the Win.

    This is akin to a child killing his parents and getting their money for being an orphan because someone else killed his three siblings. Well, not quite, but it’s pretty dumb.

    After a tweet about waiting for K-Rod, no more from Joe Janish yet. A bit strange.

      The Izzy implosion caused me to throw up on my computer. Then I couldn’t finish tweeting and blogging. I’m still feeling sick over that comeback/giveback.

        That is the third time within one month that Isringhausen loaded the bases in the last inning. Last time through a walk, hbp and a hit. this time two walks and a hit. oh, and then allowing a walk to score. wtf? isn’t that pure ineptitude? i would not let him close a game again – let him retire with his 300 saves. shades of tom glavine’s performance 09/30/07 ascending from the pitcher’s mount?
