    Really cool...Killer was always my hero, and a very nice man. One of those snots (Cameron) ended up in prison, of course.

    That makes me feel better about Eddie Rosario (although to be honest, I'm never too concerned about a pro athlete smoking a little pot)

    Sorry, not going to go back and read the whole post if this is old news, but YEESH! Blue has a real wide zone. Grab the 40 inch wood boys.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    He was a nice man. Cam was the bully. I'm sure it would have been different for him if his Dad had the ability to be around more.

    I don't see the big deal. I smoked when I was a kid, and I was a pretty "high" achiever.

    I was just going to say that KC had settled in, but I still had a feeling of impending doom. Kinda like sitting comfortably in the dentist chair during a root canal, but worrying about awful things that might happen.

    Thanks for the ugly, tolerable 4 innings, KC. See Rob Anthony immediately.

    Love the interview with Doziery on YES talking about his admiration for Jeter. I see Jeter-like tendencies in Brian.

    In the interest of keeping it real, Mauer DID 4-6-3 on a first pitch fastball. But on the other hand, it was by far his best hit ball of the day, and he did pull it. Despite the bad result, I'm glad he did it.

    Let't hope KC can get through this one, and his pitch count will then have him out of the game.

    I wonder if/when Escobar will hit the skids at the plate... but I like the kid and he's a fun player to watch.

    I used to love to watch Hrbek make that back to the infield play so effortlessly...best I ever saw at it. Nice play, Parms, to get the first out!

    I agree. I feel the same way about Nunez too.

    Me too...keeps everyone loose in the dugout too. I remember all his Chisox teammates being upset when he was traded. I get that now.

    The umps will let this go on until the Yankees score here, then call the game.

    KC's defense really bailing him out this inning. Can he keep dodging bullets until he gets to 100 pitches?

    That was quick! He might find his way out for another inning...
