The Morning After

A.J. Feeley's girl....

What you missed yesterday...

Phils 5 Jays 4: The Phils won their first series since the beginning of June thanks to a four-run fourth inning yesterday. Carlos Ruiz started things off with a bases-loaded fielder's coice, followed by a Victorino sac fly and topped off with a Chase Utley two-out triple to right center. Jamie Moyer allowed four runs and five hits in five innings to win consecutive starts for the first time since April 21 and 26. The Fightins had lost four straight series and have won just four of its past 15 games. Thank God interleague play is over.

Yankees 4 Mets 2: Mariano Rivera became only the second player in history to record 500 saves, finishing off the Mets last night while also recording his first career RBI. The RBI came on a K-Rod bases-loaded walk in the 9th, adding an insurance run to the Yankees then 3-2 lead. Chien-Ming Wang won for the first time in more than a year and Rivera got four outs, securing the Yankees' fifth consecutive victory, all on the road. Rivera is a freak. Mets suck.

Brazil 3 USA 2: The U.S. soccer team's unlikely run to the Confederation Cup final came to a heartbreaking conclusion yesterday afternoon. Leading 2-0 after the 1st half, the American team gave up three unanswered goals in the 2nd and handed the trophy over to Brazil. A 2-0 lead in soccer after the 1st half is like being up 21-0 in the 4th quarter of an NFL game - you have to hold on to that lead. Still a fine showing for the U.S. squad, hopefully they can carry some of this confidence with them to the World Cup next year.


  1. A.J. Feeley is a scumbag. Fuck him.

  2. I saw a stat yesterday that the Phils actually have a better interleague record this year than they did last year. Hard to believe but its true. Hopefully Rollins will got his head on straight after his 3 days off and the Phightins can start rolling again

  3. That is hard to believe. We were probably really shitting on them this time last year.

  4. I remember that. I was making claims that the Phillies had already clinched a playoff spot last June - then all of a sudden they started going into the toilet during interleague.

    Keep on losing Mets.

    It would have been nice to see US win but I cannot say I watched more than a couple seconds of it.
