Team already lost today??? Oh well WIN LAST NIGHT WAS AWS. Also many things are happening in baseball such as BOCHY BOCHY TIME, Flat Breezy meltdown du jour and related shenagigans as Blog of Team’s new favorite team SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS heats up for PLAYOFFS PUSH.

But Blog of Team did not come here for lecture time. Blog came here today to IMMORTALIZE Carl Crawford nutshot groin injury from last night.

Nor was Mr. Carl Crawford back in lineup for today’s 5-4 loss but at least without speedy outfielder Team managed to keep games two and three of series close.

Which brings Blog to final point of day. Baseball analyst Tim McCarver came a little unhinged Saturday while blasting off on newly departed George Schteinmeister:

You remember some of those despotic leaders in World War II, primarily in Russia and Germany, where they used to take those pictures that they had … taken of former generals who were no longer alive, they had shot ‘em. They would airbrush the pictures, and airbrushed the generals out of the pictures. In a sense, that’s what the Yankees have done with Joe Torre. They have airbrushed his legacy. I mean, there’s no sign of Joe Torre at the stadium.

All Blog knows is Blog can FINALLY publish long-shelved essay comparing Game 7 of 2001 World Serious to BATTLE of MONTE CASSINO.

mark teixeira hasn’t signed anywhere yet. he’s busy soaking teams for a couple extra million despite fact that orioles have offered him:

chance to be star in his home town
~and~
more money than he’ll ever be able to spend

but — you know — like they say on camdenchat — IT’S NOT HIS FAULT! just like it wasn’t the traitor’s fault for, you know, taking that extra couple million to play for the enemy!

after all, if one restaurant owner offers you cheesecake after dinner but another offers you CHEESECAKE, CREME BRULEE, ICE CREAM and BAKED ALASKA ….. OF COURSE YOU WILL EAT THEM ALL. it makes perfect sense!

if peter angelos doesn’t want to pay a patently ridiculous sum, maybe someone else will. and it’s all HIS FAULT.

how can you blame mark for not taking 7 yrs/$140 million to play for his favorite team? that would be crazy … he is blameless wayward O is sure.
