Schadenfreude 4 (A Continuing Series)

We lost a heartbreaker in Seattle as Matsuzaka pitched extremely well yet again (8-3-1-1-8, 113), but that doesn't mean we can't laugh at Fat Billy's struggles:




We were swept in the three-game series by the Mariners, but the Yankees made up no ground; they've now lost four straight. They are 11 GB in third place, while the Blue Jays are 9 GB in second.

Out in Queens, the Mets lead the NL East by 3.5.

And it looks like the heat wave finally broke. Life is good.

I flew out for the three game series in Seattle. The first game was painful, but #2 and #3 were great, tense, exciting...until the very end of both.

I really expected us to win both. Until we didn't. If we hadn't of spotted the Mariners four runs on Tuesday, we would have been in a lot better shape. Dice-K was masterful, though. Offense just couldn't get going. Eh, whatever, still 11 games up. And that was the end of a long road trip.

Headed home to feast on Texas and TB now, so life is good.

Chief, what a drag to make a road trip and get swept. I admire your perspective. (I share it, but I didn't fly out to Seattle for the games. In fact I slept through most of them.)

Toronto lost to Minnesota this afternoon, so they're back 9 1/2.

Baltimore tries to sweep the MFYs tonight at 7pm EDT.

You've got to be a pretty shitty pitcher to give up a homerun to Andy Phillips.

At least Wang's shittier.

Suspended by rain with the MFYs up 8-6 in the 8th. They'll have to finish it later in the season during an already grueling schedule.

That heat/humidish icky wave is gone! And now.....now it's time for our Sox to string together some wins. Have a great weekend! And a great holiday...Peter........always!

And Phrenile, I think that NY/ Oriole game will be resumed on July 17....or close! A log-waited-for Oriole sweep? I so hope.

"Long-waited for O's sweep," I meant.
