Rockies vs. Phillies: Game 3 lineups

I gotta tell you, it's a beautiful day in Denver. Maybe 70-75 degrees, only a few puffy white clouds in the skies. Just talked to old friend Vinny Castilla, who was a member of that 1995 Rockies team, the only...

The Bronx is Burning

So I get out of my cab at Yankee Stadium -- 24 bucks, plus four more for the toll -- and parked in front of the team-offices entrance are four huge fire trucks, red lights a-blazin'. At least I thought...

One freaky Friday

This is what Sheinin saw last night. This is what I saw last night. I'm not sure I believe any of it. Here are a few things I didn't figure I'd be writing about when I got to Jacobs Field...

Game 2, Angels at Red Sox: Lineups

Svrluga and I crossed paths this morning somewhere over Syracuse. I waved, but he must not have seen me. Your lineups for Game 2 of the Angels/Red Sox ALDS: For the Angels: CF Chone Figgins SS Orlando Cabrera RF Vladimir...

Yankees-Indians: Game 2 lineups

I'm here in Cleveland. Sheinin's in Boston. I'll be in Denver tomorrow. Sheinin will go to New York. Now that we've got that straight: Joe Torre sticks with the same htiters against the right-hander Carmona, reasoning he likes Doug Mientkiewicz's...

Phils: Phightin' or Phlailin'?

Wow. Hope most of you are just logging on. When I originally filed this late-night entry, I screwed up the times teams had been down 0-2 in a five-game series and came back. Because this isn't the $.35 edition, I'll...

Oddities from Philly

Here at Citizens Bank Park, we have seen: * Back-to-back homers on consecutive pitches in the first inning, care of Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Holliday, with aid from Kyle Kendrick. * Three homers on the first 11 pitches of the...

Cleveland... And Lou Piniella's bold/idiotic move

OK, as I settle into my seat in the Jacobs Field press box for tonight's Yankees/Indians tilt, it appears as if I am up and rolling with my own, personal log-in to this fine forum. And there's no way in...

Game 2 lineups: Phils and Rockies

Charlie Manuel gets to managing. The Rockies are sending out a second stragiht lefty, but the Phillies manager sends out an overhauled lineup. Shrewd move, or a bit of panic? He just said he did it because Werth is "a...

Bits and pieces: Philly

First meal of the playoffs wasn't at some local Philly dive (ate at Rick's cheesesteaks last week, related somehow to Pat's), but rather at corporate giant McCormick and Schmick's, made popular by Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler on (the late)...

Oh my God! Where are my pants?

Just kidding. 34-32s are on, and have been on all day, as best I can remember. Some notes from Phils-Rox: Cole Hamels needed 40 pitches to get through the second inning. He allowed three hits, three walks and three runs...

Dmitri Young: Comeback Player of the Year

So Dmitri Young was just announced as the National League's Comeback Player of the Year -- an honor that's well-deserved. Think about when we first met this guy in spring training. He was overweight. He was wearing a "Sanford and...

So I was just told by GM Jim Bowden that there will be no news on the coaches today. I'll look into this more over the course of the afternoon. But here's my read on the situation: Randy St. Claire...

Thank you

Game 162 is in the books. Final record: 73-89. My prediction: 62-100. (What, I didn't tell you, "Give or take 11?") As I ride the Acela pointed south, season three in the books, just wanted to say thanks to all...

The Morning of No. 162

Well, that was fairly compelling. And, of course, it leads to the 162nd game, which means something. You might want to check out Jim Bowden's strong words in the gamer this morning. He is very excited about the way this...
