The Rays can't suck this much, can they?

Lou Piniella needs to get out of there and quick. I don't think he even cares anymore.

I'm saying though - how do you tag Randy Johnson for 10 runs in 3 innings, have an 8-run lead and still manage to lose? The Empire ends up putting a 13-spot in the 8th inning. THIRTEEN RUNS.

Damn, that's just brutal.

When it comes to the Rays losing, I always think back to the Futurama episode where this gas being was a huge Star Trek fan and returned all the original Star Trek actors to their bodies and made them sit through a fan convention.

Anyway, Shatner is sitting on a stool doing a spoken-word rendition of "The Real Slim Shady." One of the very disgruntled Star Trek actors (I think it was George Takei) asks, "How did he manage to do a spoken-word version of a RAP song?"

Enraptured, the fanboy gas-being says, "He FOUND a way!"

There you go. The Rays always find a way.

Far be it from me to question the managerial skills or motivations of Lou Pinella, but this has to be the first time that a manager was stupid enough to let a middle reliever stay in the game long enough to give up nine runs. Plus he gave up two inherited runners, so in the time that it took him to get two outs, he let eleven men cross the plate. Was Lou in a coma during the eighth inning? Did all his guys in the pen break their arms? Someone, please explain.
whatever

Gas being: "That's Melllvar, with three "L"'s!"
Takei: (dryly sarcastic) "I've been to these conventions before, I *know* how to spell Mellvar."

Excellent episode!

I still treasure the 22-0 rout the Tribe laid on the Yankees last year. Ah, the sweet memories.

Actually, they put a 13-spot up in the second inning against Tampa on April 18th (sports.yahoo.com) also. I would have gladly traded that inning for a non-shit pitching performance by Johnson. I mean, seeing this Yankee team hit like this is a lot of fun to watch, but 8H, 3HR, 1BB, and 7ER against Tampa is a cause for concern. The Yankees STILL have not won a game in which they have scored 3 runs or less. That will probably not translate into championship #27. RJ is 0-2 against TAMPA this year, and right now in my opinion, the most consistant starter this season has been Mr Wang...

Except that they lost two out of three and have a losing record against them this year. The Yankees suck.

First Stagger starts this thread and the Yanks went on to lose 6 in a row I believe? Now this one is started and the Spanks have lost 3 in a row. Stop jinxing your team guys.

"Since they filmed the football scenes so tightly (quick edits, no wide shots), there's no way to tell where Sandler ranked on the Realistic Athlete Scale (with Reynolds being a 17-out-of-10 and Tim Robbins being a negative-5). My guess is that Sandler was shaky enough that they masked his "abilities" in post-production, a strategy that Bill Parcells should consider with Drew Bledsoe this season"....from Bill Simmons column reviewing the new and original versions of "The Longest Yard".

Yes, it seems for every ray of sunshine, I get ten thunderstorms. Sad indeed.

Um, Go Yanks?

I wonder if he's got some injury he's not telling anyone? Either that or what Tomboy said. That's probably the reason Glavine's off to a rocky start, too.
