4th best record in all of baseball
Pirates don't play tonight so we're a half game up.
"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
Never got to watch or listen. At work with no internet streaming. Kept getting score reports from ESPN score center. Each time the ESPN sound would do it's thing, it ws Arizona scoring. At 6-0, I put my phone on silent. Checked bak an hour later and nearly had a heart attack. I thought there was something wrong with my iPhone. Did a whoop-whoop which scared all in here.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
I was shocked when I got home and saw the score. I had to leave right after I posted that and didn't get home until about 6 pm. A good comeback win. Wins like that go a long way toward a division winner.

No one is saying Marshall doesn't give up some hard hit balls, but just watching him tells be he seems to give up a ton of bloop hits.
I can't believe it. I'm usually one of the more positive people around here and I almost always stick it out regardless of the score...I pick TODAY to get depressed. *sigh* Great comeback boys. You've taught me a lesson to remember it ain't over till it's over.
Good job to the rest of you guys for sticking it out and bringing the W home!

Just watched the reply of Chapman getting the last out... I wonder what Dusty said to Leake as he went past? It looked as though Mike was just going to go into the clubhouse but Dusty puts his arm around Mike's shoulder and says something. Hmmm...
