Looks like the WSH/KCR game last night was a good game with a lot of good defensive plays, with the Nationals winning 2-1.

Angels 2

Dodgers 1

Game ends when Russell Martin is tagged out rounding 2nd on a horrible call by the ump and it costs the Dodgers a chance for extra innings as the tying run hadn't crossed the plate yet.

the M's just re-acquired russ branyan for a couple of minor leaguers. in addition to the fact that the M's 1b's were absolutely embarrassing at the plate, i suspect this move was made to 1-give the team a shot in a winnable (even for a team 14 games out) division and 2-to send a message that the M's will be happy with compensation picks in next year's loaded draft if the teams bidding for lee don't seriously up their offers.

Rough times in Tampa.

Looks like the BoSox will lose Pedroia for at least 6 weeks because he has a fracture in his foot. V-Mart might also be hurt, evidently a sore thumb is making it impossible for him to get his hand in his glove without serious pain; he will be examined tomorrow.

I mentioned this in the Tigers game thread, but I heard somebody on BBTN refer to the "Twinkies." I'm going to see how long I can watch the Yankees/Dodgers before Morgan makes me want to stab my ears out.

Holy smokes-the Yankees are doing a pretty convincing imitation of the '06 Tigers during the world series all of a sudden. The Dodgers are using the bunt to their advantage, that's for sure.

ARod is NOT a good fielder. He's totally screwing up the game here in the third inning.

I sometimes wonder how much switching from SS to 3B in the middle of his career affected ARod. He looks better now, but for the first couple of years didn't look all that comfortable, to put it mildly.

Evidently there are a lot of shadows on the field because of the time of day, I'm going to guess that the Dodgers are used to it and using it to their advantage.

Grandy coming up with 1 out in the 9th and 2 men on. Dodgers up 6-3.

Can he do something against Broxton?

Grandy with a great at-bat and walks. Bases loaded. Huffman up.
