My third favorite Uncle.

Every time I hear him called Uncle Mike, I think of the song by the Flying Burrito Brothers.

Add that to the season's pitching highlight reel.

Plus the catcher got racked.

I don't think Alvarez had a decent swing all night.

James to pitch 9th. Surprised it’s not Abreu, I think he only threw 6 pitches last night.

My third favorite Uncle.

The other two must be pretty damn special.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Anyone know the story of Urquidy changing his name?
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

So Brandon Backe threw the 55th Immaculate Inning in baseball history in 2004.  Harris's tonight was the 100th.  So almost half of all of them in history have been in the last 15 years.

Angels had three hits tonight...all of them shiftfuck singles, two which didn't leave the infield.  They did not have a runner reach 2B.

I think a few of them had been thrown against the Keystone Astros.

How many more Ks would strikeout artists of prior eras (Ryan,  Richard,  the Big Unit) have had in the true outcomes age?

Get this: Astros' last three wins have been shutouts & they haven't allowed a runner reach 3B in any of them. Angels didn't have a runner reach 2B tonight.

Well done,  GZ.   Well done.

Just read the GZ on a train from Munich to Paris. So much wailing and hand-wringing. This team will be ready in October.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
