The Morning After

For all the 24 fans out there...

What you missed this weekend....

Phils/Sox: The Phillies continue to struggle at home, dropping 2 of 3 this weekend to the Red Sox at Citizens Bank Park. They went down in extra innings on Friday night thanks to Kyle Kendrick, but it seemed to me they had it won when Greg Dobbs hit a moonshot that appeared to go over the foul pole. The ball was called foul, and maybe it was, but the umpires should have at least reviewed the play to confirm the call. The Phils continue Interleague Play this week with series' against Toronto and Baltimore, both at home.

Lakers: The Lakers defeated the Magic last night in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to take home their 15th Championship in team history. Phil Jackson won his 10th Championship as a head coach, making him the winningest coach in professional sports history. Kobe led the Lakes with 30pts in Game 5 to secure the 4th ring of his career.

Mets/Yankees: The Mets lost 2 of 3 in Yankee Stadium over the weekend, a wild series that included a dropped infield fly to lose Friday in the 9th and a 15-0 blowout on Sunday. The usually lights out Johan Santana gave up 9 runs on 9 hits in only 3 innings pitched on Sunday, the worst start of his career. During batting practice on Sunday, Francisco Rodriguez and Brian Bruney got into a shouting match in the outfield. The fight came one day after Bruney told the media that K-Rod's on the mound antics are a "tired act". I completely agree with Bruney on this one. The Mets are 4 games behind the Phillies in the NL East and the Yankees trail the Red Sox by 2 in the AL East.
