  • HOLY FUCK, Byrd is starting today? Geez, I miss two days of baseball and everything gets all weird.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 12:43 pm
  • Paul Byrd starts today. Even 30 days ago, who would have seen this coming?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 12:43 pm
  • Man, Halladay is hurling himself off the Cy Young cliff. He just doesn’t care anymore, and who could blame him?

    AndrewYF August 30, 2009, 2:08 pm
  • Byrd getting a bit squeezed.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:08 pm
  • Is it just me, or does Halladay look horribly depressed in his Gameday picture?

    AndrewYF August 30, 2009, 2:13 pm
  • 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%.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:13 pm
  • Baldelli homers, 2-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 2:14 pm
  • Or even your 75%.
    I haven’t noticed strikezone issues, but maybe that’s because the Yankees are winning.

    AndrewYF August 30, 2009, 2:15 pm
  • Chamberlain pulled after 3; 4H 2 ER, but only 35 pitches.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 2:17 pm
  • Woah, what’s wrong with Joba? Or are they trying to conserve his arm?

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:18 pm
  • Great play by Byrd to field the bunt.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:21 pm
  • 43 pitches after 3 scoreless innings from Byrd.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:25 pm
  • Nothing’s wrong physically with Joba, they’re just starting him small and building him up through September and into October. Interesting plan.

    AndrewYF August 30, 2009, 2:26 pm
  • Nothing physically wrong.

    Sox have 4 hits of doc, 3 dbls, 1 HR.
    Youks SF makes it 3-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 2:29 pm
  • Youk knocks Pedro in with a sac-fly. 3-0 Sox.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:30 pm
  • Wow, that’s a strange plan for Joba. But hey, if it works then it’ll certainly pay off.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:31 pm
  • Wow, Byrd gets out of trouble.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:45 pm
  • Drew singles, fourth straight leadoff hit.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 2:50 pm
  • I’m loving the addition of AGonz on this team.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:52 pm
  • Byrd has fielded his position very well today.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 2:59 pm
  • > 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.

    Devine August 30, 2009, 3:40 pm
  • Wheels falling off both the Jays and White Sox.
    At least the Rays lost.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 3:41 pm
  • Also, WTG Byrd and offense.

    Devine August 30, 2009, 3:42 pm
  • Texas also losing at the moment, though it’s only 2-1 Twins in the 5th.

    pale blue eyes August 30, 2009, 3:44 pm
  • Billy Wagner gives up a double to Adam Lind but strikes out the side. Better than Gagne already …

    pale blue eyes August 30, 2009, 3:53 pm
  • Also, WTG Wagner.

    Devine August 30, 2009, 3:54 pm
  • Paul Byrd, Nick Green and Billy Wagner all with an 0,00 ERA.

    pale blue eyes August 30, 2009, 3:57 pm
  • Wow, Billy Wagner with a much more impressive debut than Gagne had in 2007.

    Atheose August 30, 2009, 3:57 pm
  • 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.

    pale blue eyes August 30, 2009, 4:16 pm
  • A fine, fine outing by Byrd. Much more than we could have asked for.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 4:53 pm
  • Tex, 3, Minn 2, bot 8; but the Twins threatening at the Twinkiedome.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 4:54 pm
  • Twins have tied it, 3-3, runners on 2 and 3 w/ one out.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 4:55 pm
  • Minn 4, Tex 3, bot 8, one out.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 4:57 pm
  • 5-3, still one out.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 4:59 pm
  • Nathan time. 3 outs and the WC lead grows to 4.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 5:03 pm
  • Nathan sucking. 2 on 0 outs.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 5:09 pm
  • Crap. E 1, bases loaded 0 outs.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 30, 2009, 5:10 pm
  • Ha ha, he got them. Rangers lose! A perfect wild card day.

    Devine August 30, 2009, 5:22 pm
  • Nathan does a Papelbon, loads the bases with 0 outs but gets out of it. Twins win!
