Next time you think your team has a bad contract on it's hands, remember that the Mets will be paying Bobby Bonilla over a million bucks a year for the next 25 years.

NEW YORK -- This will only add to the myth-making and legend-embellishing that is certain to accompany Adrian Gonzalez’s first season with the Red Sox, if this keeps up. It won’t be long, at this rate, before the Sox start drawing up plans to add another statue next to the one of another left-handed hitting machine from San Diego. Giddiness becomes the order of the day when Gonzalez tells manager Terry Francona that he plans to swing like Ichiro on his fourth at-bat against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia, who had handled him with ease to that point, then hits a three-run home run into the right-field seats. “He amazes me,’’ Francona said after Gonzalez hit his fifh home run in his last four games and seventh in his last 11 to turn a close game into a 6-0 romp over the Yankees. “When you say you’re going to do it and then you do it, that’s pretty impressive.’’ Here’s how the conversation in the dugout went, according to Francona. “He said he was going to have a little bit of Ichiro in him, a little bit of a leap,’’ Francona said. ‘’He said, ‘Do you have a problem with that?’ I said, ‘Not if you get a hit.’ ’’

I have to explain how I didn't even watch while I was watching.

I turned the game off at 5-0. then watched while washing the dishes from a late dinner with the game on mute. proceeded to go over some notes at the kitchen table with the sawx silently coming back totally oblivious and even turned off the kitchen tv during the 8th inn commercial break thinking they were still down 5-0.

as I'm laying down my wife tells me what happened.

Downs is showing why everyone wnated him this past offseason. Rodney had a couple of decent years as a spot releiver for Detroit. But when he has been used much more by Tigerst and Angels he has been much more exposed.

[quote=LawrenceMD;4476272]weird NYY BOS game. typical 4hour affair. Badly managed by girardi... he puts in posada and posada gets a walk then he forgets to pinch run for him to pressure the pitcher while gardener bats.

You will lack for pinch runners when you are carrying 13 pitchers!
