Also, who is talking about the Rays/Sox race? The Sox discussion is about the 2007 world champions.
It is funny seeing people talk about an 8 game lead like it is impossible, yet also talk about the comeback where Tampa was 9 back of Boston on September 1st.
Not saying it is likely, just not impossible as a few have said. This is baseball and the beauty of it is the impossible just keeps on happening :)
No kidding. AFAIC September 28 should be declared a National Day of Celebration, with the ninth inning of that final 2011 Orioles-Red Sox game played in an endless loop.
For their 20th anniversary, the Rockies have been showing little minute-long remembrances of some of the biggest games in their history. There's one from 2010 where the Red Sox were at Coors, and Papelbon came on to protect a 6-5 lead in the ninth. Ian Stewart led off the ninth with a long home run to tie the game, and Jason Giambi followed with an even longer one to win it.
I never get tired of seeing that.
Let he who does not write "to be not be" cast the first stone.
Other games include:
* Eric Young leading off the first home game with a homer
* Brent Mayne's pitching victory
* Ubaldo Jimenez' no-hitter
* Carlos Gonzalez finishing off his cycle with a walk-off homer against the Cubs
Now, is is likely? Of course not. But they do have pitcher who is doing much worse than history says he should in Hamels and with a bit of luck who knows? However, I wouldn't bet on it. More likely choice for a big comeback is Washington in the NL East, or the Jays in the AL East (getting Reyes back soon, rotation finally going as planned even though starters #2/5/6 are still not here, bullpen overflowing with talent, hopefully have Lawrie back soon too).
Michael Young is #146 all time in hits. Pujols is #139, but Adrian Beltre surprised me at #142. From here Beltre could very well end up with more hits than Pujols, which I would not have guessed 4 years ago.
Unfortunately for Andy, that one game in September 2011 won't be played in an endless loop, but what will be replayed over and again will be the 2004 ALCS. All 7 games, so that everyone can relive the stunning turnaround, from the absolute dominance one team enjoyed for the first three games, to the complete collapse they managed over the next four games.
Nah, just a complete lack of knowledge about things biblical.
You probably just got it mixed up with 40 days and 40 nights.
Also my favorite, the Spilborghs extra-inning grand slam vs. the Giants, where he rounded the bases in about 15 seconds flat.
if they're gonna 'blow it up', i'd be much more interested in trading carlos ruiz and jimmy rollins and michael young, than i would be in trading chase utley. i know utley's a free agent and i know he's going to be in and out of the lineup for however long he continues playing, but he is just so fundamentally sound in all aspects of the game that i think there's surplus value in having him in the lockerroom if not the lineup.
