Seven innings and one run from your starter is always good. Javy's ERA is down to an almost respectable 20.67. A few more starts like this and he'll be golden. Granderson hit a home run against a lefty, making him officially better than Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui combined.
The Yankees, who were playing the Orioles last night, got seven innings of one run ball and a scoreless two innings from their 'pen. Despite this, the only reason they won was because of an error in the seventh that allowed two unearned runs to score. These are the Os people, that is unacceptable. I realize Matusz is probably their best pitcher, but still.
When the Yanks got back to the clubhouse after their win, there was a bear in it. Nobody knew how the bear had gotten into the clubhouse. Teixeira spoke up first, "It's an old Portuguese message," Teixeira explained. "It means there's a bear in the clubhouse."
"That's so stupid!" replied AJ Burnett, "That's not even a message, that's just what it is. As every good son of Arkansas knows, bears only appear when they want to be shot by hunters. I'm going to get my rifle from my truck."
AJ was quickly reminded that MLB has banned guns in the clubhouse. He quickly took the computer in his locker to draft a strongly worded letter to the Commissioner, whom AJ refers to as "Butt Selig."
Eventually the bear was anesthetized by highlight videos of the Orioles attempting to play baseball and removed from the clubhouse.
A Grander-Bomb, From Granderson
That would've been my call anyway. Granderson hit his third home run of the season, netting his fifth and sixth dollars for the children. If you want to be grand like Granderson, then enter the CHF raffle. Believe me, bullies will stop messing with you.
