The bleeding stopped. Finally. The Tigers beat the Royals, 2-1. Sanchez did his usual great job and, for a change, had enough runs to make it count as a win. Joe Nathan was in command of all his powers. Now, if he can only just keep doing it. Even though Ausmus tweaked the lineup a bit, run production is still way down. A good afternoon to be at the ballpark. On to Cleveland.

Sanchez is so fun to watch

After a lousy stretch of games, the Blue Jays come from being down 8-0, to winning the game 14-9 against the Reds. Amazing comeback.

In spite of the best efforts of the bullpen, namely, Ian Krol, the Tigers won. And, the Royals lost. We're back in first place. To take a 5-0 lead and make it 5-4 in an eye blink requires talent. Krol just did not have his stuff. Rick Porcello, quietly, racks up another win--his 9th of the season.

Yankees had a nice come from behind win with a 3 run Beltran blast in the bottom of the 9th.

That Jays v Reds game was silly.

Yankees have definitely continued the tradition from last year of making mediocre to crapass pitchers look like CY candidates.

Who was that guy pitching for the Yankees last night? He didn't look like anything special. Just another pitcher.

You mean the guy who had some of his worst stuff of the season and still had a quality start?

He's the guy who is going to be the starting pitcher in the All Star game in a couple of weeks

What a shitshow. Derek Jeter sucks at shortstop and he always has.

For those of you who watch games on television, is the cameraman ever placed in the stands along with the fans? I watch Jays games and lately the station I watch them on has made a habit of putting the cameraman in the stands, usually searching for someone to film. Sometimes you'll see these long shots of his point of view as he walks down the steps, other times you get people waving to the camera. It ruins the feeling that you're seeing genuine reactions, and by having the camera move around so much, it highlights the fact you're not actually there, and it feels desperate, as if they're saying "Look at how much these people are having! Why don't you come down to a game sometime?". I had to stop watching.

On Monday, the members of the '84 World Series champions were on hand to celebrate their 30th anniversary of the "Bless You Boys" team. 42,000 people were on hand to witness the pregame ceremony. It was a special moment when Alan Trammel spoke on behalf of the team. During the pregame Q & A, it was pointed out that not one of the members of the 84 team have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. It was a team comprised of many talents and not super stars. And, of course, the Sparky Anderson stories were remembered.

The celebration was muted as the score was 4-1 going into the 9th inning By that point, at least half of the crowd had left.




But, those who stayed were rewarded as Rajai Davis hit a walk off grand slam to win the game.
