The Morning After

Blue Jays 8 Phillies 7: Rod 'friggin' Barajas hit a pinch hit home run leading off the ninth inning to give the B Jay's an 8-7 win and a three game sweep over the defending champs. Joe Blanton gave up 4 runs in 5+ innings as the Phillies continue to not get any consistant innings from their rotation. It is a developing problem. Rollins, Werth, Mayberry Jr and Dobbs all homered for the Phillies who lost their 5th out of their last 6 games. Scott Rolen, 6 hits in the series and Rob Barajas, 4 hits, 2 hrs continued the trend of Ex Phils hurting the Phillies this year. Wes Helms anyone? Ronnie Paulino? Their still bums

O's 5 Mets 4: K-Rod blew his second save in a week as the Mets lost to Baltimore 5-4. The Mets have lost 10 of 14. Rookie phenon Matt Wieters led off the inning with a hustling double and after a walk, a bad defensive play and another walk, Aubrey Huff hit a game winning single. The Phillies are blowing a golden opportunity to bury these frauds.

US Open: The first round of the US Open was suspended Thurday due to inclement weather. Friday's forcast calls for morning rain before dry conditions move in during the afternoon. Saturday looks like it could be more like Thursday. Maybe they can get one of those retractable roofs that they have in Arizona? Why would they have a retractable roof in Arizona? Nevermind...Namesake's boy Mediate will pull through once they get going. Heard it here first. Play resumes at 7:30 am

Sixers: Moved training camp from State College to St Joes this year. Camp opens on September 29th and runs thru Oct. 4th. Its because Penn State didn't want YOU Dalembert.

Arizona St 12 North Carloina 5: Hero Kole Calhoun hit a game tying Salami in the fifth and the go ahead double in the 7th to lead ASU over UNC in the College World Series. Calhoun ended with 6 RBI's in the game and has homered in each of the Sun Devils CWS games. The # 5 seed Sun Devils plays # 1 Texas on Friday night. ASU would have to win Friday's game and another Saturday also against Texas to advance to the best of 3 final. UNC is eliminated, finishing 48-18.

NHL: Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals beat out Evgeni Malkin, winning the Hart Trophy for the second straight year. Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins was voted as the NHL's top goalie. The Flyers Mike Richards was robbed by the Red Wings Pavel Datsyuk as the Selke Trophy winner, NHL's top Defensive Forward. Datsyuk edged Richards 945-942 into total votes, but Richards received more first-place ballots. Its rigged.

NFL: Donte' Stallworth has been suspended indefinitely by Roger Goodell and the NFL. Stallworth was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in jail, a controversial ruling that drew a great deal of criticism.

The conduct reflected in your guilty plea resulted in the tragic loss of life and was inexcusable. While the criminal justice system has determined the legal consequences of this incident, it is my responsibility as NFL Commissioner to determine appropriate league discipline for your actions, which have caused irreparable harm to the victim and his family, your club, your fellow players and the NFL


  1. phillies are really hurtin. The combination of ibanez going down and the starters struggling is not looking good. Thank god the mets suck otherwise we could be in some trouble.

    Hopefully the Phils work the phones hard and and get another legitimate major league starter in. By the way those babes are special

  2. How much Bull Shit is it that Stallworth gets 30 days in jail while any of us would be in their for a minimum of 5 years. The things you can get a way with when your famous and have a shit load of money, just ask OJ

  3. Phils are pissing me off lately. Until their pitching gets it together they're fucked. Hopefully they can turn it around this weekend against the Orioles.

  4. Richards didn't get robbed. It seems like Datsyuk wins that award every year. The dude is pretty nasty!

    Anyone catch any of Ovechkin's speech(es) last night? The dude seems like he would be fun to party with after numerous shots of Russian Vodka.

    So now the Sixers Training camp is directly across from their normal practice facility? Why not just play at PCOM?

    Doc - Mets suck! I think they should be taken off your daily recap until further notice because right now the Nationals deserve to be on here more. Also, I can't call this K-Rod's 2nd blown save in a week, because the won over the weekend was a blown save by Castillo.

  5. You may not be able to but Major League Baseball can. The more the Mets lose the more you will see them here.

    This is Datsyuk's second straight Selke. He won his 4th straight Lady Bing.

    I agree with Puck Daddy:
    "The Professional Hockey Writers' Association votes on this one, and EJ Hradek made the point on NHL Live yesterday that it's difficult to take the nuance of defensive play into account when a writer doesn't see every player on a consistent basis. So this was probably a reputation-based win for the Detroit Red Wings star".;_ylt=Ah4fe9YnZD40WNOqhYI83Kt7vLYF?urn=nhl,171393
