Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
The Phillies were supposed to win Game 1 last night behind Cole Hamels, and they did. The Rays are supposed to win Game 2 tonight behind James Shields to salvage a split at home. Result pending. My preview is up on SI.com.
I imagine the TB bats wake up tonight, but I have no objective evidence to base that on. In any case, a Tampa win evens the Serious and makes it more likely to go the full 7 games, so that's what I'm pulling for.
just got home from gig
stayed late to talk with hot blonde
tampa bay will win
4-zip Rays, bottom 6. shields is out. wheeler faced feliz, price warming in pen...
most of those rhythms are subdivided as 1-2 1-2-3 or 1-2 1-2 1-2-3
and nope, am not Japanese, Brooklyn born and bred. (Though been here to long now I can't fathom how anyone could wear their shoes in the house back home..filthy habit)
OYF...2 Jews and a Muslim (me by birth)..sounds like another punchline waiting to happen!
would you believe the place was playing some college football game? ugh. i guess 'coz it was on espn. i saw the rays go up 1-0, on the bottom line. for some reason, i get yankee am radio here in my car a tiny bit but can't get espn radio at all. i came home just as the safety squeeze made it 4-nuthin'...
yeah, there's definitely a punchline in there! wish sliced bread was around...
yes, i can attest to that punchline! definitely the way to go, as far as i'm concerned. my brother did well and my mom is happy, so i can follow what i chase...
here's the kid. price vs. utley
cobham rules on that! my old fusion trio is supposed to have a reunion next spring. if so, for the 1st set, we're adding the bass player from my jazz trio and a violinist, and we're re-enacting Inner Mounting Flame, in it's entirety for a live cd/dvd release. i'll let you know if it comes to fruition...
Another great band that just disappeared was 'Lighthouse'.
30 have never seen Cobham in concert! only people i'd put ahead of him are Elvin Jones and the too-hastily-departed Tony Williams. Tony played with Miles when he was 16!!
5, 7, 9
would make a cool King Crimson tune! : )
tony played w/ jackie mclean even before miles. i miss him everyday...
nope, i don't know either of those bands, sorry. there were some big bands from this area that i had never heard of til i moved here. ie: atlanta rhythm section, mother's finest, the outlaws... reminds me of the Good Rats from Long Island...
Now that my work is almost done, I can focus more on what's going on in this game . . .
11 14 19 I stink at haiku, but I guess I'm the resident Catholic tonight, so OYF, if you've got any "two Jews, a Muslim, and a Catholic were in a bar" type jokes, now's the time to break them out! =)
I'm shocked Maddon is leaving Price in. But hey, good for him.
Meantime Price gets the two guys who hit lefties really well, and now faces . . . wow, Eric Bruntlett!
That's why I was surprised Maddon left Price in.
Classic early 70's rock!
muslim in japan
2 jews and a catholic
waiting for punchline
damn, ruiz having the game of his life. i hope bruntlett got his homerun ball that was thrown back. rollins is due...
Muslim in Japan
Two Jews and two token goys
waiting for punchline
Boy, Price is something. I'm kinda surprised he's still in there, though. I guess it doesn't hurt that his next two batters (if it goes that far) are lefties. And Howard can't hit lefties, though Utley can.
um, touching his jersey is considered HBP, kid! he'll learn...
