So its mid season now and with the all star game festivities over I’m going to rate some teams on how they did in the first half.
I went to a baseball camp this spring, It was at a local high school (GO SKY HAWKS). The varsity coach told us that if you score 8 runs in 9 innings you can’t lose. Unless, he added. The pitcher had a rough day. Andy Pettite had a little more then a rough day.
A starter who was demoted to the bullpen then got the start only after 300 wins pitcher Randy Johnson went to the DL. He came to impress, 11 strikeouts, and no walks. The Padres, the team the Giants where playing had no answer to the stuff that the 26 year old southpaw. He nearly had a perfect game, but Juan Uribe made an error in the eighth. This was the first no hit pitcher for the giants since John Montefusco in 1976. Thats a streak of 32 seasons without a no hitter. The Giants won (of course) 8 – 0.
So that feeling is back, Summer is half way over and baseball is in full swing. With the mid summer classic looming around the corner, and I really don’t know where to go from here cause I’ve been brain dead for a while so you know what that means… Questions For You!! Ya I’m putting the pressure on you. Here we go!!
Hey everybody, Hope you all had a fun forth of July. I did, besides a near death experience with a Black Cat and a lighter, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but I think those thing need longer fuses. Anyway the Yankees had a fun day too. Well Most of the Yankees did, Chien -Ming Wang gave up a home run in the sixth and then had to leave because he got hurt. Johnny Damon tied the game in the seventh inning with a 2 run blast off Roy Halladay. YAHOOOOOOO!!! Then came the bottom of the 12 where Jorge Posada got the game winning hit!
