Roy Halladay hasn't been much since the trade deadline, and today he goes after the Sox. Wake up, bats.
Discuss the action here.
HOLY FUCK, Byrd is starting today? Geez, I miss two days of baseball and everything gets all weird.
Paul Byrd starts today. Even 30 days ago, who would have seen this coming?
Man, Halladay is hurling himself off the Cy Young cliff. He just doesn’t care anymore, and who could blame him?
Byrd getting a bit squeezed.
Is it just me, or does Halladay look horribly depressed in his Gameday picture?
Wow, there’s a huge strikezone for Garcia in New York, isn’t there Andrew? And Joba was getting uber-squeezed last inning too.
Yeah Andrew, maybe Halladay was looking forward to getting to play for a contending team. Now that he’s stuck with the Jays it must be tough to find enough motivation to give it your 100%.
Baldelli homers, 2-0.
Or even your 75%.
I haven’t noticed strikezone issues, but maybe that’s because the Yankees are winning.
Chamberlain pulled after 3; 4H 2 ER, but only 35 pitches.
Woah, what’s wrong with Joba? Or are they trying to conserve his arm?
Great play by Byrd to field the bunt.
43 pitches after 3 scoreless innings from Byrd.
Nothing’s wrong physically with Joba, they’re just starting him small and building him up through September and into October. Interesting plan.
Nothing physically wrong.
Sox have 4 hits of doc, 3 dbls, 1 HR.
Youks SF makes it 3-0.
Youk knocks Pedro in with a sac-fly. 3-0 Sox.
Wow, that’s a strange plan for Joba. But hey, if it works then it’ll certainly pay off.
Wow, Byrd gets out of trouble.
Drew singles, fourth straight leadoff hit.
I’m loving the addition of AGonz on this team.
Byrd has fielded his position very well today.
> they’re just starting him small and building him up
Everyone who has clamored for Joba to be a closer got their wish, inverted.
I leapt around and screamed like an idiot when Polanco hit that go-ahead 3-run bomb in Detroit to (eventually) sink the Rays.
Wheels falling off both the Jays and White Sox.
At least the Rays lost.
Also, WTG Byrd and offense.
Texas also losing at the moment, though it’s only 2-1 Twins in the 5th.
Billy Wagner gives up a double to Adam Lind but strikes out the side. Better than Gagne already …
Also, WTG Wagner.
Paul Byrd, Nick Green and Billy Wagner all with an 0,00 ERA.
Wow, Billy Wagner with a much more impressive debut than Gagne had in 2007.
Saito completes the sweep and a 7-2 homestand. Be nice if we could do some damage at the trop, especially considering that the Rangers will get to feast on the Jays next.
The Rangers also have just taken a 3-2 lead. So, go Twins, we need you.
A fine, fine outing by Byrd. Much more than we could have asked for.
Tex, 3, Minn 2, bot 8; but the Twins threatening at the Twinkiedome.
Twins have tied it, 3-3, runners on 2 and 3 w/ one out.
Minn 4, Tex 3, bot 8, one out.
5-3, still one out.
Nathan time. 3 outs and the WC lead grows to 4.
Nathan sucking. 2 on 0 outs.
Crap. E 1, bases loaded 0 outs.
Ha ha, he got them. Rangers lose! A perfect wild card day.
Nathan does a Papelbon, loads the bases with 0 outs but gets out of it. Twins win!
