Great news, by the way, on the Civil Rights game here in 2011 & 2012. I’ve mentioned before that I went to the first one in Memphis at the Redbirds stadium some years back. Really great, historically, and great for the local kids.
Boog showin’ his former team some love on the air. Mets still up 6-4. Did the Marlins GM actually look at this bullpen before the season and say “You know, I think this is gonna work. We can contend.” In the end it probably cost Fredi a job. Now it’s 6-5. Bot 8th. Man on 2nd. 2 out.
Tcc – yes, there was definitely some goof ball with a vuvuzela last night. Sounded like he was somewhere behind home plate. Mentioning it last night felt too hackneyed, but yes – it was very annoying.
So, I left the stadium right when JJ gave up that first single in the 6th and then turned on the radio in my car right as Moylan induced the double play. What a great game. JJ looked so much better than I expected and hoped for. I guess we have an answer about how much stock to put in to his results in AAA …
Nice win, great to see JJ back! I really hope that rumors about Haren going to Philadelphia don’t amount to anything. Those Philthies just don’t know how to give up, do they? Either way I loved watching the game yesterday, & I enjoyed this week’s show! GO BRAVES!!!
