Hockey player Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals warms up before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the start of the game. Inspired by the sight, the Orioles proceeded to kick out the teeth of the Angels.
I read somewhere that Jeff Mathis is a winner. The words were a lie. Lyle M. Spencer of mlb.com is a liar. Mathis has made a liar out of a man who does not even understand the game about which he is paid to write. Mathis made a liar out of poor senile Lyle and loser out of Dan Haren and dug the grave on this season a hell of a lot deeper than it was before the first pitch.
But let's not let Mike Scioscia off the hook, as his late-game addition of Hank Conger as catcher yielded the first 2 runs of the game with a King Conger Big Bomber - a monster HR hit in the 9th inning off of Baltimore's über mop Kevin Gregg. Oh, and the inclusion of Vernon Wells in the lineup led to an 0 for 3 night with 4 LOB.
Pretty much summarizes the season. The Rangers Magic Number is 9, could be 8 later tonight and might be zero as early as Wednesday. Do you think this will mean more or less ABs for Mathis and Wells?
