    Happy Birthday USA and George Steinbrenner.

  2. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Happy Independence Day to all!

  3. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Right back on the horse again tonight.

    Start a new streak.

    ;)

  4. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Famous saying.

    Might have been Churchill.

    “Democracy is the worst form of government except for all the others”.

    Happy 4th to all.

    Be careful not to blow your fingers off.

    :)

  5. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Have a great and glorious 4th, Tom. You earned it.

  6. Betsy July 4th, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    Happy July 4th!

    My brother-in-law said he heard people say on the radio, in answer to questions, that they didn’t know who America declared independence from. It’s completely embarrassing, but unfortunately, not surprising.

    Tough pitching matchups – the Indians’ starters have pitched very well, especially Masterson………..wow.

  7. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    So did you GB. In spades.

    Have a great day ! Be careful with those M80′s. Nasty buggers.

    :)

  8. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    GB7,

    “Freedom is not free.” God bless America, the home of the brave!

  9. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    Here in Georgia you can’t get a firecracker you can hear a block away. Over in South Carolina you can buy enough big pyrotechnics to blow up a city!

  10. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    MTU, I gave up the fireworks a few years ago. Now, I’ll just sit back and watch with the twins. It’s their first and I’ll be with them down of the river to watch. And thanks, MTU. Just a job that needed down. I got lucky.

  11. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Tom, that’s a great quote. Thanks for the reminder.

  12. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Tom-

    First of all let me say thank you for your service.

    When I was a kid I used to love dropping those m80′s into covered garbage cans.

    Blew the lids clean off and about 10 feet in the air.

    We have an Indian res that sells all you want at really good prices.

    It’s so dry out here this year it would be great if people would just use a little common sense during their celebrations even though I know they wont.

    It’s a tinderbox. Alchohol, fireworks, and really dry conditions do not mix well.

    Hoping for the best.

  13. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    job that needed ***DONE***

    Only in American can you misspell a word and not get hung for it.

    The penalties for misspelling and early withdrawl (savings accounts, you dirty minded folks ) and can be deadly.

  14. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    GB-

    The humble refrain of a warrior.

    Enjoy the festivities. It sounds like fun.

    P.S. Be sure you have a designated driver handy and you’re wearing your life jacket.

    MTU, got the babies…no drinking for me. Can’t say the same for “Killer” though. That hound is a lush.

  17. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Trying to scare the moose and FROGS back to Canada, huh, Maine?

    Just kidding about “FROGS”, Comet.

  18. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    GB-

    That’s good. He’ll drink enough for both of you. Of that I’m sure.

    By the way, Is it the Savannah river you’re going to ?

    I like the name of the one that runs through our backyard.

    It’s called the “Virgin”.

    :)

  19. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    I want to thank everyone who lives a patriotic life, whether they served or not.

  20. MaineYankee July 4th, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    GB7

    You don’t scare moose. They scare you.

  21. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Maine-

    You’re kidding. Right ?

    What could be scary about Bullwinkle ? Rocky didn’t find him the least bit scary.

    :)

  22. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Happy 4th everyone. I am personally looking forward to drinking too much and then attempting to light fireworks, like a true American.

  24. REA in MI July 4th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    Good afternoon.

    I’m driving in to Cleveland with my 2 sons (ages 9 and 6) for tomorrow night’s game. You’re all more plugged in than I am… Is it reasonably safe to tell my boys that Derek Jeter will almost certainly be in Tuesday nigh’t lineup?

  25. MaineYankee July 4th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    GB7

    I won’t touch the “Frog” comment.

    I might get a tounge lashing from a certain someone.

  26. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    TY-

    Have a great day. Stay safe. Maybe you could invite Maddon over for some “fireworks” ?

    :)

  27. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    MTU, correct…The Savannah River. About 2 miles away is Wilmington Island and it has a small Stream that was renamed “Moon River, named for Savannah’s favorite son, Johnny Mercer.

    Yeah, but get a couple of beers in Bullwinkle and watch out.

    As Boris once found out in a lost episode.

    Try coming around a corner in the pitch black and see one in front of your hood.

    We have alot of roads without street lights. :lol:

    I liked that song. Is it really wider than a mile ?

    :)

  31. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Sorry, Maine.

    Tell that certain someone, “Ribbit”

  32. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    It is, Maine, but it’s in dog miles

  33. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    MTU,

    Thanks. I did what seemed right to me and, like GB7, stayed lucky.

    South Georgia is in a super drought with several big fires, not New Mexico size, but big enough that the south wind carries the smoke hundreds of miles. Lots of Georgia counties have called of fireworks shows to avoid starting any more. Have to settle for gunshots in the air, I guess!

  34. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Aldo-

    Thank you for your service as well.

    With your handle that should be obvious.

    I’d shake your hand but I can’t quite reach.

    When you stick around the Hacienda you don’t have much to worry about.

    No wild Moose, and even better, no drunks.

    Stay safe. Enjoy your day.

  36. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    MTU

    ahh I should.

    at the Tuesday night Rays and Reds game that i went to, there was this woman behind us and I cant remember, I think it was Brandon Phillips, he struck out looking and before he went back to the dugout he had words with the ump. The woman yells, “yeah complain like the Red Sox!” I tried to control myself because my friend gets embarrassed when I pick fights at the games(it happens everytime), but I couldnt. I turned right around and said something to the effect of ” uh, excuse me? Whose manager tries to get tossed out of every game? YOURS!! Joe maddon is the biggest whiner in the AL East!” and then I sat down. She didnt say anything to me, I think she was in shock.

  37. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Tom-

    We all rely on luck in one way or another. Sometimes we just don’t know it.

    Have fun. Be careful of those gravitationally guided projectiles.

    :)

  38. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Tom, as bad as the storms can get off of the ocean down here…that’s or advantage. The fireworks are shot off over the water….either the Savannah River or over the ocean if you’re at Tybee. We get enough rain around here, but west and south of Stateboro. not so good.

  39. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    TY-

    I think of that as spunk. Good job.

    :)

    Maine-

    Are you SURE that wasn’t a Bigfoot ?

  40. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Maine-

    We’ve got the same problem around here with the smaller cousins.

    If you’re on a rural road driving at night you’d better be damn careful.

  41. MaineYankee July 4th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    tyanksfan

    Did you see Pedroia turn and yell at the ump as he ran to first on a base hit?

    He had a strike called on him that had him in a rage.

    It’s a wonder the ump didn’t toss him.

  42. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    “It’s a wonder the ump didn’t toss him.”

    The ump felt sorry for him since he knew that he was vertically challenged.

    I hate to correct you, MTU, but field mice are not cousins of the moose.

  44. MaineYankee July 4th, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    MTU

    If you saw it you would think the same.

    I’ve never seen a player react that way towards an ump before.

    He continued after he got to first base and also after the inning was over.

    He clearly showed up the ump which usually gets you tossed.

  45. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    There the size of Deer though ?

  47. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Bichette hasn’t hit very much yet, but, he doesn’t strike out much and for an 18 year ols, he’s quite patient. 46 at bats, only 7 strikeouts. He does have 14 walks and a sac fly, though.

    I’ve seen Youkilis do the same sort of thing.

    Another team of whiners.

    Maddon and Scioscia have it down to an art form though. Nobody tops them.

    “It’s a wonder the ump didn’t toss him.”

    i think midget tossing is against the law now.

    make that small people tossing( don’t want to get anyone upset here).

  52. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    GB-

    Or big mice.

    Maine-

    We do have a few improved roads ya ‘know.

    Not that many but a few.

    Camel maybe. You can’t saddle a goat. Unless of course it’s for Pedroia to ride.

    :)

  53. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    “i think midget tossing is against the law now.”

    I don’t think any honest living should be banned, especially during a recession.

    “make that small people tossing( don’t want to get anyone upset here).”

    I think small people is a more apt description for people of even normal height or taller, but who are extremely petty.

  54. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Where I live, there are so may deer that the bag limit per hunter is twelve a year! And people feed them. A deer strike or two happens every day. But MTU, ours don’t carry Hanta virus.

  55. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    GB

    I am going to a GCL game on Saturday. I have already been to 2 and Im starting to figure out who the player are now. I saw Bichette walk twice in the game I went to saturday. He does seem pretty patient, I only saw one ball go to him on Saturday and he fielded it cleanly and turned a game ending double play. I didnt get to see the range of the outfielders because all the balls hit to them were either gappers or right to them.

    Good point. People need all the work they can get. It isn’t bank robbery. Unless of course we’re talking more work for Politicians. Oh, I’m sorry you did say “honest”. My mistake.

  58. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    “Like you, Larry and Moe?”

    No, like you, little dick.

  59. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    sounds like a good time, TY. Be sure to give reports on Adams, Austin, Santana and Bichette. Stay safe in that heat, TY. It’s a killer.

  60. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    “Where I live, there are so may deer that the bag limit per hunter is twelve a year!”

    Come to my backyard, and you can get all the deer you want.

  61. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Tom-

    I believe hanta virus is carried by the mice that GB thinks I like to run over at night. Not by Deer.

    Our deer are even more special. They carry ticks which give you Rocky Mtn. spotted fever.

    That’s a real barrel of laughs.

    ;)

  62. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Rich, I don’t need any more.

  63. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    MTU,
    Lyme disease hasnt gotten here yet, as far as I know, but deer ticks carry that, too

  64. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    tom

    That’s the one thing that’s changed about Bergen County in the last 20 years. Development, whatever you think of it, has pushed deer and foxes into residential areas where there used to be none. I even saw a bear a few blocks from my house a month ago.

  65. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Tom-

    Yeah. That’s another fun one.

    And everyone thinks Bambi is harmless.

    :)

  66. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    GB

    it wasnt too hot. They play Saturday games at 10 which is a bit cooler than their usual 12pm games. I can tell you that Carlos Franco, the Braves 3rd baseman in the GCL is having quite the hard time with balls hit towards him. He seems pretty okay about it because he cusses and laughs when he botches a play. Tyler Austin has looked good at first though its hard to see from where I was sitting. the big blue fence is distracting.

  67. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Rich,
    I grew up in Ho-Ho-Kus when it was rural, and we had plenty of deer then.

  68. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    A real bear? Oh, My. Any lions and tigers?

  69. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    If you want to see an inhumane way to kill deer, just look at how many lay dead along the highways. Hunting is far more humane.

  70. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    “A real bear? Oh, My. Any lions and tigers?”

    No, Dorothy.

    With that big a deer population do you have a problem with deer ticks?

  72. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    You know what Tom. I’ll make you a deal.

    I’ll take all of Georgia’s ticks if you take all of our rattlers. Let me know if you want to make a deal.

    Never had a prob with the ticks wish i could say as much about the other.

    Too many close encounters of the slithery kind (Don’t run with that GB).

  73. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    GB7,

    They’ve got a bear season in NJ now. They are nuisances all over the state.

  74. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    TY, I’m glad that last part didn’t read like some scouting reports from the ladies. “Those big blue eyes were distracting”.

    sorry…just having some fun. Good stuff. how is David adams running and playing around 2nd base?

  75. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    MTU,
    Copperheads and upland moccasins, as well as brown recluse spiders and black widows, are enough poisonous vermin for me.

    I have LD and the drs aren’t good at diagnosing it here.

    They want to label it anything but that.

    Look out for a bullseye rash. Not everyone gets it but that is one indicator.

    Muscle pain is one result but their are many other symptons.

  77. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    MTu, what ever gave you the idea that I would believe you meant any other way?

  78. Good Job Bad Job July 4th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Scratch another IFA target off the list:

    The Astros have signed Dominican shortstop Luis Reynoso, reports Ben Badler of Baseball America. The 16-year-old received a $700K signing bonus.

    Badler’s subscriber-only scouting report says Reynoso “has an athletic, projectable body and combines solid tools with instincts and feel on both sides of the ball.” He’s a contact-oriented hitter with speed from the right side, and it’s expected that he’ll be able to man the middle infield long-term.

  79. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Can we please turn to fishing for a moment ?

    Did any of you ever have to throw a fish back because it was too small ?

    Last season I caught an 18″ rainbow and had to throw the sucker back because he was too
    SMALL. The minimum was 20″. Now that is just plain frustrating.

    :(

  80. Against All Odds July 4th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Why did Robbie accept the invite to participate in the derby?

  81. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Maine,
    It’s a debilitating, long-lasting disease. I never caught it, but friends did. Truly nasty. Thorough tick-check every day.

  82. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Tom, the weapons ranges on Ft Stewart, Ft Gordon and Ft Benning can be a nasty place for those little pests.

  85. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    MTU, if you like fishing, try the gulf side of Florida. The shark fishing is excellent. You don’t dare try to throw them back.

  86. West Coast Yankee Fan July 4th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Because I know you.

    :)

    Tom-

    When you get out as much as I do that is a real problem. Are you a hiker, or outdoorsman ?

    If so, that would be real cause for concern. I don’t hike alone much anymore because of it.

    Too damn dangerous. Thankfully most of ours give you a warning. Yours don’t.

  88. blake July 4th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Happy 4th to everyone!

    Tough loss yesterday…..can’t win them all and something like that was bound to happen sooner or later.

    Pretty excited to get some sure hands back at SS today. Im not sure what’s happened to Pena but that was just horrific technique on both of those balls….standing straight up and never got in any sort of position to make the plays. He looks like he’s bulked up a bit and frankly like someone that’s not athletic enough to play SS right now…….unless LGY has figured out a way to delay Jeter’s flight to Cleveland he should be back in the lineup today.

    Maine,

    My wife was recently diagnosed with LD, it went unhandled for a long time – lots of wrong diagnosis. Can you write me backchannel gruvzz@gmail.com.

    hello to MTU and GB.

    GB7, They’ve got a bear season in NJ now. They are nuisances all over the state.

    ************

    I am not surprised.

  91. 86w183 July 4th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    GB 7 —-

    I don’t think we have any 18-inch sharks down here!

    Once had a deer run into our back yard. The little one ate a carrot out of my hand and then took off without so much as a thank you

  92. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Afternoon, Bronx. How goes the writing and book tour? Been a while since you were on here.

  93. MaineYankee July 4th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Maine,
    It’s a debilitating, long-lasting disease. I never caught it, but friends did. Truly nasty. Thorough tick-check every day.

    —————————————————————————————–

    I’ve known I’ve had it since 05 but probably got it at least 10yrs before that.

    It’s good to do a check but the ones that are the problem are so small you can’t see them.

    They also like to hide in areas that are hairy, which makes it hard to see them.

  94. sammiejohnson July 4th, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I hear Nike has just come out with a new light weight hunting boot. Can’t wait to give ‘em a try.

  95. 86w183 July 4th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    If Jeter gets 3 or 4 hits in Cleveland it would be perfect. No more, no less.

  96. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Perfect would be a sweep of Cleveland.

  97. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    I never hit a Bambi. thankfully.

    People that do usually suffer more than the Deer.

    They don’t die quickly like the deer.

    There is nothing you can do about it except to exercise caution.

    We have a huge amount of wilderness out here but chance encounters still seem to just be in the cards.

  98. m July 4th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Good morning and Happy 4th, everyone!

    Hopefully, we start a new streak today.

    WCYF,

    You seriously can’t be offended about what anyone says about California. They’re just tweaking you because of what you said about Georgia. Don’t be such a snob. ;)

    And do people here seriously think that Nunez didn’t have tightness? Because that’s what y’all making it sound like. Like Nunez was perfectly healthy. All players say they’re healthy and ready to go. Girardi just used his managerial prerogative.

    Go, Yankees. Go, AJ, And Oh, Canada!

  99. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Tom, my younger brother is a cross country truck and was in Michigan last fall and hit a bear. killed the bear and totaled the truck. The deer down here aren’t all that big and the venison has a pine and swamp grass taest to it. On this side of the state, you need to go to around Washington before the dee get good in taste and size.

    Well we called hims other things but, he wasn’t really a truck…just a trucker/truck driver

  103. Rich in NJ July 4th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    “And do people here seriously think that Nunez didn’t have tightness?”

    No sane person, because if the Yankees are lying about it, they would have be insane, and there is no evidence to that effect.

  109. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    Just the Yankees’ luck. John Lackey is pitching well. 4 outs and only 2 runs allowed.

    Haha maybe he does have big blue distracting eyes. Ill probably have to wait until he makes it to Tampa before I can find out. Ill definitely keep you updated on that though lol.

  115. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    TY, that’s ok. You can let him distract you. Hope you have a great time at the park, saturday morning. No rain….I hope.

  116. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    MTU,
    Was that a lynx?

  117. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Blake-

    He has developed a really wicked curve to go along with his other stuff.

    Him and Betances both need to learn efficiency.

    Manny has been walking fewer guys in recent starts but more progress is needed in getting deeper into games.

    Maybe when the command gets to where it needs to be.

    I’ll catch you later.

    :)

  118. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    Tom-

    It was. A rare sighting. Still haven’t had the privledge of seeing a Cougar in the wild.

    Maybe one day. At a safe distance of course.

  119. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    OUCH. Morrow’s held Boston hitless in the first two innings and they finally get a runner on a strikeout and wild pitch. Promptly gets picked off of first. 3-0 Toronto.

  123. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    You are a lucky man to have seen a lynx. Got a quick view of one departing my vicinity in northern Minnesota. Did you hear the reports of a cougar sighting in NJ (not talking about “Jersey Shore”).

  124. MTU July 4th, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    What is a cougar to you isn’t apt to be one to many others.

    Well maybe randy.

  127. jpb173 July 4th, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    If Jeter rejoins the Yankees today then someone will have to go down to Scranton (or be DFA’d). Does anyone know who that is? Will Nunez, Pena or Dickerson go down to Scranton or might this be the time to break the ties with Andruw Jones?

  128. KPB July 4th, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    MTU

    All is good, thanks for asking.

  129. Joe from Long Island July 4th, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    Happy 4th, everyone.

    If anyone has the opportunity to go the LoHud outing in Scranton, they should do it. We went a couple of years ago, and had a great time. Chad showed up (he was working at the local paper then), he’s a first rate guy. Met Shelly Duncan, and Francisco Cervelli (a very polite young man, he apologized when he had to go catch that day’s SP, Ivan Nova).

    Pete spent the day, and socialized with everyone. (GB – too bad you weren’t there, you could have provided some entertainment :) )

    Everyone we met there, from fellow LoHud bloggers to the ballpark staff, to the people of Scranton, were gracious, and great company. You really get a taste of minor league baseball, and what it can mean to a community.

  130. LockDown July 4th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    Watching Lackey getting rocked :D

  131. Giuseppe Franco July 4th, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    There are a couple of cougars that live on my block.

    They are ferocious and pretty aggressive – especially when you don’t take them out for dinner.

  132. Joe from Long Island July 4th, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    7-0, Toronto. Talk about firworks!

  133. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    Rumor has it that Boston is putting John Lackey on the new DLFPTKGTIHBLD.

    (Disabled List For Pitchers That Keep Getting Their Infielders Hurt By Line Drives)

    1 out in the third. 7-0 Toronto and a runner on base

  134. lil m July 4th, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    Happy Fourth of July all and thanks to our Lohud vets. A propos of nothing, the Angels knew what they were doing when they let John Lackey go. Wow.

  135. Giuseppe Franco July 4th, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    I would have to think Pena is going to get the axe today and that was probably going to be the move regardless of yesterday’s outcome.

  136. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Doctors are supposed to be peace loving and opposed to violence, Joe…not promote it.

  137. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    GF, the most dangerous cougars are the ones that armed…..with a marriage license

  138. jpb173 July 4th, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    I would have to think Pena is going to get the axe today and that was probably going to be the move regardless of yesterday’s outcome.

    ==============================================

    That seems like the most logical move. I don’t think that the Yankees will keep Andruw Jones on the roster too much longer though…but they might hold off to see how Boston addresses their shortcoming in right field. I’d hate to see us release Jones then have him go to Fenway and beat us in August/September or October.

  139. tomingeorgia July 4th, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    MTU,

    New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine all had populations of mountain lions. So did New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, wiped out during the 1800s. What if they are just coming back, like the coyotes did?

  140. Joe from Long Island July 4th, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    Oh, GB, I’m not promoting violence. I’d have every expectation that you and Pete would engage in a nice, peaceful dialogue. No guarantee about what your blood pressure would be, though…….

  141. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    KPB

    yes, I did

  142. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Not a problem with doctors drumming up their own business, Joe. I really would like to get there, though. A lot of folks that I’d love to meet from the board, past and present. I’d even help Randy with his walker.

  143. Against All Odds July 4th, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Even though Lackey plays for the Red Sox it’s hard for me to be happy when he struggles.

  144. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    Lackey’s not struggling. he just stinks

  145. tyanksfan36 July 4th, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    GB

    I recently did some digging and found out there are a number of Tampa Yankee fan cougars that were hot for Suttle last year. I think its about time they ship him and his .222 avg back to Tampa.

    I wanted to make sure. Just sent a response.

  148. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    LMAO. You’re too young to be a cougar, TY, unless you’re dating the high school football star. Then, you’d only be a “cougarette”. He might be better off in Tampa. Never was that impressed with what he did on the field.

  149. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Minnesota is all over Price at 4-0 in the third. Not positive that the Twins will hold this lead, though.

  150. austinmac July 4th, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    The Lackey signing makes Burnett look like the deal of the century. Lackey’s ERA is now 7.47, ripe for good headline jokes.

  151. Joe from Long Island July 4th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    I think David Price has been a big disappointment this year.

    If you look at it, Price, Porcello, Strasburg – all the big name young pitchers who were supposed to enter baseball and dominate from the start, have had problems. Historically, one can say this should have been predicted.

    There aren’t many Bob Fellers out there. It’s tough being a ML pitcher.

    Kind of puts Phil Hughes’, and Joba’s, difficulties in some perspective.

  152. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Yeah it does, Joe. It also makes what pitchers like Pettitte and Sabathia have done for 10 plus years all the more special.

  153. GreenBeret7 July 4th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Toronto and Morrow are giving Boston some hope in this game.
