I hate baseball sometimes. Phils were losing to the Braves 2-1 with 2 outs in the 9th. Then the Braves pitcher walks 2 in a row, then gets an easy pop up to 2b, looks like the game is over, but nooooo the Braves 2b drops the ball and the tying run scores. Fast forward to the 10th, Phils get 2 in the top of the inning, Braves have 2 on, 2 out, the batter gets a single, one run scores, but the tying run is gunned down at the plate to end the game :mad:.

I will take my camera and maybe get some pics up.

We got the tickets through my hub's work. They had a drawing for every home game this season. We were lucky to get them as there were a ton of people wanting tickets. I think we're over by the third base line, not sure exactly. We will get the tickets Thursday.

Ok, so my team finally managed to score some runs today 6 in fact (thats double what they had in the first 3 games put together). It had all the makings of a nice win, until Billy Wagner decides to serve up 4 runs, including a 3 run bomb to Tony Clark in the 8th, and the Mets lose another rough one 8-6 to the Padres.

A four game sweep at the hands of the freakin Padres!!!! Who does that??? Oh yeah and the Phillies won again too. Ughhh

I will never forget the first time I stepped into DODGER STADIUM as a kid of 9 or 10...WHOA!!! or the first time I took my son there when he was 9...although he had been going with me to see the Padres play (in the old Jack Murphy...now Quallcom...not PETCO) our DODGERS since he was born....he even was with me when they beat those Cubs in the National League play-off 5th game in '84...of course he was only 3 and got sick eating "junk"...so we left in about the third inning!!....man I love baseball/DODGER memories!!

Had six tickets to Fenway Park for Sunday's game with my two adult kids and SO's all. We were in right field where Drew caught two flies deep into the warning track. Nice!! On TV you can't hear the thunk of the ball hitting the gloves as the right fielder warms up with the bull pen catcher. Loved the emotional playing of Dirty Water at the end of a winning home game.

Thought I'd broken the bank with the price of tickets until I faced the price of concessions, LOL. Was a little surprised to be out $150 for modest snacks for six. Are all ball parks rather pricey these days or I am I just old fashioned? Water, for example, was $3.75.

Yes it will be my first ever major league baseball game :D

I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to baseball. Growing up in Scotland we watched football. It's only since moving here,4 years ago, that I've become addicted to the game. Hubs is amazed I know more about it than him. I never miss a game.

We're playing Cincinnati today. It would have been nice if Griffey had got his 600th at home.

Yep BILL it is insane...the cost! I just don't bother to go much anymore because of it, something just bugs me about paying $8.00 for a warm beer in a plastic bottle!

As far as the sound....oh yeah! I remember one game against my DODGERS and the Padres in Jack Murphy/Quallcom stadium, we had seats down the right field line, first row. A ball was hit down the line to Tony Gwynn, he fielded it on the line about 15 feet up from me....when he threw the ball in you could hear the "woooosh"....sweet!

Or sitting near the bullpen at DODGER Stadium and hearing the smack of the ball hitting the catcher's mitt from the starting pitcher warming up.

I saw a game once in Seattle with the Mariners at the old park...weired hearing the sounds "inside"....the "thud" of a ball hit off the wall just isn't the same...

or the "ping" of an aluminum bat!

Glad you had a good time.

CLYDEGIRL you are going to LOVE IT!!...but that wasn't "football" you saw in Scotland...that would be soccer....;)

MY goodness the nightmare continues and it gets worse every night.

Mets 5th starter Mike Pelfrey was battling Brandon Webb, pitched the game of his life and the Mets were up 3-0 in the 9th. Pelfrey gives up a soft single to the leadoff guy and they take him out and bring in Wagner. Wagner gives up a double and then gets 2 outs before giving up a game tying 3 run HR.

Mets were winning 4-0 going into the 8th, they give up 2 in the 8th, and then Wagner comes in and coughs it up for the third straight outing letting the Dbacks tie it 4-4. Then in the bottom of the 9th the DBacks make 2 diving plays to stop the Mets from scoring what would have been the winning run, and then those Snakes score one on a sac fly in the 10th to win it 5-4.

Oquendo 3rd base coach has now been ejected from the game after arguing why the Phillies pitcher was not thrown out. The pitch went around the back of Brendan Ryan.

The big question who will pitch the 9th inning.

I love Aaron Miles. He was one of my favorites that would come to Children's Hospital to visit the kids when he was with the Rockies. He was always very sweet with the kids. He's a good guy! I was sad to see him go. Kind of funny that they had him pitch. I think it's fun to watch position players pitch now and then. Sorry about your team though.

What a wonderful day. They won in the 10th inning 7-6.

It was so much fun. I loved it. 2 home runs as well.

My first impression of the field was that it looks so much bigger on TV.

The only bad thing was Molina getting hurt in the 9th inning and being taken off the field on a backboard with a neck brace on. He had a bad collision at home plate. The place was deathly quiet while he was being examined. It looks like it was a concussion. Haven't heard anything else.

It was a hot day. We got 2 vouchers for a free ticket as they had a special ceremony for a Cardinal employee who died earlier this year and gave every adult a voucher. So I will get to go again :D

I really enjoyed it.

Well the Mets finally fired manager Willie Randolph last night. Its been rumored for a long time, essentially since the end of last season, and hadn't happened, so I didnt think it would until the end of this season. Ironically enough they've actually won 3 of the last 4 games and won last night hours before he was fired.

The media has been screaming about the Mets needing to make a decision on this, and now that they finally did, they are all ripping the Mets for mishandling it; probably they are all just crabby that they were ready for bed when the new broke.

Yes slash my team has come back to life a little bit. Though you wouldn't know it by they way they played tonight. Johan Santana gives up a grand slam to the Mariners PITCHER and the Mets lose 5-2.

Last night was pathetic. The Mets have been absolutely brutal against last place teams this yr. They've already been swept by the Padres, lost a series to the Rockies when the Rocks were really slumping, lost a bunch of games to the Nationals, and now the Mariners. Hopefully they can avoid an embarrassing sweep tonight.

Thankfully the rest of the division has been bumbling along as well, so the Mets haven't lost any ground. They need to get their act together quickly though

:mad: It really annoys me when they walk 2 people intentionally in an inning to load the bases, then the next person up walks because the pitcher can't throw 3 strikes, winning the game.

I'd much rather see them pitch to the batter giving up hits, than giving up walks for them to win a game.

Yeah Clydegirl, thats one of the worst ways to lose. The Mets actually lost the NLCS to the Braves on a "walk off walk" several years ago. It was horrible.

Heres what I don't understand...why in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases loaded and no outs, would you pinch hit for the two players who have hit the best that day? I really don't understand that.

Razz, I was kidding. I still feel your pain, at least until we play you guys! Maybe Hurdle is trying to hold on to Holliday. There have been trade rumors here regarding him. Not liking that!!

Hurdle actually did select Wright after all :carrot:

There have actually been rumors here of Holliday coming to the Mets who really need a corner OFer. :cool:. Their LFer is out for the season, and RFer has had on and off post-concussion issues for the past couple months so nobody knows if/when he is going to be well again. But the Mets don't really have much of a farm system at all, so I don't see it happening. Besides, the Rockies really have no need whatsoever to trade Holliday. Teams just don't go out and trade their best player for the **** of it. Its probably just the media trying to create some drama. I don't think the Rockies would trade him.

There's been talk about Holliday coming here as well. I don't think the Cards would give up Rasmus to get him. Rasmus is one of their best prospects in the farm system.

A win against the Pirates tonight, 2 more please.

Mets win a pitchers duel 2-1. A whole week of competent baseball by my guys :dizzy:. Is this real or make believe?

Clydegirls Cards had a pretty impressive win I see.


EZ's guys have had a rough 1st inning. Hopefully they can put together a nice comeback against those Fish!

You were kind, Razz. Thanks! I can't believe you can leave the bases loaded so many times! Crazy. Oh well, maybe today will be their day. I think you're right about Holliday. The Rockies would want something pretty spectacular in trade for him, so I think it is just media trying to stir things up. Give the fans more heartburn.

They just lost that game to the Pirates.

Went to extra innings and they must have used every pitcher in the bullpen.

They were winning until the bottom of the 9th and Isringhausen blew it.

Boy do they need to spend some money on the bullpen!!!

I hate losing games like that.

Mind you it's nice to win games like that.

Being a Mets fan is generally a very humbling/depressing experience, so I know not to talk trash during the rare times things are going well lol ;)

And I wouldn't say the Mets have really been beating up the Rockies. Both games have been close, the Mets pitching has just been red hot right now. Hopefully for me they can keep it up.

Unfortunately those damn Snakes couldn't help the Mets out, so the Phils won, and secured themselves of going into the break in 1st place. After this crazy start to the season, it would have been nice to see the Mets sneak into the break in 1st, but hopefully they can win tonight and stay 0.5 gms out.

My DODGERS finally had an easy one...going to the break 1 game out....feeling decent about that.

WE really need to win the division...no wild card for us....thanks to the your CARDINALS your Mets and a few others right now.

Enjoy the game tonight GALLS....

Maybe next year.

There's some big bats there for the National League.

They just might do it this year.

I don't know how Fukudome was selected. Well I do thousands of fans voting. There are better centerfielders out there. When you look at his stats there are much better players that did not get picked.

I will watch some of the game tomorrow, don't know if I will see all of it.

Boy, I loved that Homerun Derby last night... Josh Hamilton, what a story ! I believe there was a bit of divine intervention a Yankee Stadium last night. I almost turned it off, but I entered a contest and wanted to see 'my guy'... I'm so glad I saw it in real time... I'm hoping his story inspires others dealing with addiction.
Time to make popcorn for the game... no salt or butter of course.. ;)

It's just that I have hated them since 1964 when I was 10 years old. I wanted them in the World Series...my dad wanted the CLYDEGIRL CARDINALS...great series...he won the 7th game...oh those players...some of the greats!

I know what you mean Gary... Nights like this are bound to turn up some memories... I think of my dad a lot when I'm watching the games... That was our bond... I do hate the Yankees as a whole. I did/do however think the world of Joe Torre. We have to get thru them to get to the WS, but we will never get to BEAT them in one... damn............ I have a funny feeling your Dodgers are going to be on top by OCT... I'm going to bet you are in first by 2.5 games. !!

I'm a Yankees fan and I'm irritated by the fans at the stadium tonight. This isn't a Yankees vs. Redsox game. This is the AL working together. I thought all the booing was rude.

Unfortunately, sports was not encouraged when I was growing up, so I only discovered baseball 5 years ago, and I don't have a ton of memories, but I was really touched by all the old timers. We went to Yankees stadium 2 years ago, knowing it would be our last time. I had hoped to go to the new stadium next year, but it's not looking likely.

Sweetcaroline
07-16-2008, 12:27 AM
It really angers me that NY some how had the idea that Papelbon would 'close' if they had the lead and not Rivieira... The fact it would not be Papelbon was discussed last week, Francona said it, Pap said it. Somehow page 6 and other NY newspapers got it wrong, again... Now they are boo-ing the kid.......... Sorry Darby, but I hope they slip right down the charts and the sooner the better.... Perhaps you should consider rooting for the Mets ??? LOL

07-16-2008, 12:41 AM
The whole Papelbon thing is being blown up...as usual...out of proportion! All the guy said was he felt he should close...what's wrong with that...he should feel he should as so Rivera and ALL the other closers there!

Sorry SWEET-C but drew hitting that home run made me mad...my son even called me..."Dang dad...jd....why couldn't he do that for us?

I managed to see 99.9% of the game. Because I had consumed some extra liquid ;) I was in another room :mad: when Young got that hit... I thought it was a pretty boring game, but couldn't shut it off.... I was happy for JD Drew, but what the heck is he going to do with yet another new automobile ? I suppose he'll park it next to the Red Volvo Convertible they got for winning the WS... I could really use a new car... (94 Honda here).

SWEET-C, Brian has been AAA with the Phillies for the last 3 years. He gets close but just never quite to the bigs....maybe this year. He worked with my son for a few years at a sporting goods store when he was off-season and my son worked there during college. They became friends and keep in touch. There are other local boys that my son knows that have been in the majors for a bit but are back in the minors...but Brian is his only friend.

Thats a bummer on Saito EZ, he seemed to be a real good pitcher (better than my teams closer). Is Broxton going to close now?

Back and forth game for my guys tonight. Mets were up 2-0, then Santana pitched terrible and they fell behind 5-2, then they rallied to take a 6-5 lead, but with 3 in the 7th, the Reds took a 8-6 lead. Hopefully my boys have another rally left in them!!
