    Watching my very first baseball game last night. Did enjoy it tbh. The Rays took the Red Sox pitching apart in the middle innings, Longoria killed with something like 5RBI. Will definitely be checking out this game some more in the future.

    Crazy game today. The Mets were down 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth, came back to take it to extra innings, then won it on a walk!

    Nothing controversial there really. Wanted to find room for more Mets (Delgado, Reyes, Murphy), but couldn't pick them ahead of the guys I voted for.

    The Dodgers aren't too shabby, are they? Even without Ramirez, they're leading their division by a fair bit - 9 games. 39-19!

    Haha, the commentators really piss me off sometimes.

    Hideki Matsui walks up to the plate, and they go "no one in Japan is doing anything right now except watch this."

    Yeah, sure.

    I don't get to see many Tampa Bay games on TV here. I've been really amazed today by how good those guys are defensively. They've come up with some outstanding plays.

    It's a shame Longoria isn't playing today.

    I can't believe the Orioles came back from 9-1 down to beat Boston 11-10. That's sensational.

    Loved the Home Run Derby today. Prince Fielder is awesome.

    Would have liked to see Joe Mauer get going and get past the first round though.

    Doesn't count for much when we can't get off bottom of AL East.

    True, but that's not as bad as it sounds given the quality of the division.

    I think Baltimore could be a postseason team in 2-3 years.
