The Giants announcers respect the tradition but they at least play it like we all would if we were watching a game together. Talk about it, don't mention it. Use every euphemism you can think of to underline the hits column. Let your voice get a bit higher and more animated with every inning. Anyway. Cheers, Justin, we know we're watching a legend.
 
That takes me back. Back in my Expos days. Van Horne, Snyder and Singleton. Some of the best, in my books.

Well it looks like Price is in his “I've got a tender wrist mode” while the SOX are trying to make that last Wildcard spot. So he’s going to miss his Yankee start.

Cards' play-by-play guy wasn't watching. McCarver sort of picked him up but not really.
 
The umpire did a face-plant on home plate as well.

 
either that or he was trying to get the best view for making a call   {#Wink}

Ooh, you don't see that very often. I guess he got tangled up with the catcher but I couldn't tell.

Everyone was running with 2 outs... can you imagine if there were 2 on, nobody out? Weirdest triple play ever.

Cool.

It was quite an interesting afternoon. I went 1-for-3.

I watched Verlander no-hit my Jays. Turned to watch the end of the Reds-Cards game, the Cards walk off for the 2nd time in a row. Then i turned to watched the end of the A's-Yankees game, the Yankees walk off for the 2nd time in a row.

Verlander up in the 9th.

No-hitter on the line.

Edit: Done it. He becomes the 3rd pitcher ever to no-hit the same team twice. The first one to do it in the same ballpark.

Lol. I meant to say a few minutes ago. Man time sure does fly.
anyway I had not one HR but could single double triple all day ;)
I still have the score book. Our coach was named Ed Satterfield. There's a baseball name if I ever heard one.

I forgot to say that The Simp was also a lefty. Skin and bones and arm.

Hey Zev let's get a team together. I'll need a pinch specialist though lol.
we'll show those 13 year olds a thing or two...

It's funny that he's got a twin brother - who pitches for the Twins - who is left-handed.

Crazy. I was in little league a few days ago with a guy who pitched side arm but nothing like that. His last name was Simpson and we called him The Simp. He was something else but I could hit him. I was slow and tanglefoot and played right field but I batted 700 plus for a 10 game season. Life's tumult got me distracted from playing baseball around that time but I digress.

That guy has a wicked pitch. I wonder how fast and what kind of stuff he has. I'll be interested to follow...

The Bessemer Reds...We were pretty good if I say so myself...
