The Good, Bad & Really Ugly

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

We're pressed for time today - so we'll just look at the good, the bad and the ugly from last night's action.

The Good - Red Sox West finally beat the damn Cardinals. Former Red Sox P Derek Lowe didn't bring his A-game to the park last night, but the Dodgers' offence bailed him out and got him the win. Lowe managed to pitch into the sixth but was pulled after getting one out - he finished the night giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks...not a great way to pick up a win, but we'll take it (so will Lowe).

The Bad - Red Sox P Tim Wakefield saw his string of great starts go down the tubes last night - the Detroit Tigers got to the knuckeballer last night for five runs on nine hits over seven innings in a 7-2 loss.

The Ugly - The Anaheim Ducks must have spent Monday night watching the Sabres because they played just like them last night - the Ducks came out pretty flat last night and Detroit took it to them. The killer for the Ducks was second goal scored with less than a minute left in the first period - you could tell that it wasn't going to be there night. Things went from bad to worse as they gave up two early goals in the second and it went downhill from there. The Ducks lost their minds after the fourth goal and completely got away from playing hockey - Chris Pronger laid a vicious hit on Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom, and will probably be suspended for it; even though the refs gave the penalty to Scott about those NHL officials huh?


Red Sox West SS Rafael Furcal had four hits and drove in three runs last night in the Dodgers 9-7 win over St. Louis. It was the third consecutive game he had put up four hits - good enough to get kudos from Albert Pujols.

Toronto Blue Jays rookie P Jesse Litsch was called on to make a start for Roy "Doc" Halladay who underwent an apendectomy last week - the former Tampa Bay Devil Rays batboy nicknamed "Rojo" survived a shaky first inning, and came within one out of pitching a complete game in Toronto's 2-1 victory over Baltimore last night. I wonder how long it takes before Litsch is nicknamed "the intern" or "the resident".

Houston Astros LF Carlos Lee came up big last night - Lee hit two home runs, including a walk-off shot in the 10th, to lead the Astros to a 6-5 win over the Giants. Lee finished the night with four hits, four runs scored and two RBI.

A tough night last night going 2-1 and winding up + $30 on the night - the total for the week is still kind of ugly...but we'll fix that tonight.

Oakland over Kansas City - we're going with Joe Blanton over Odalis Perez tonight, can't see the Royals winning two of three in Oakland. Lay $100 on the A's - $200.

San Diego over Cincinnati - we'll go with Jake Peavy over Bronson Arroyo, not that we don't like Bronson...but Peavy has been almost unhittable lately. Lay $100 on the Padres - $170.

Baltimore over Toronto - call it a hunch pick or call it a "we're not sold on the enigma that is A.J. Burnett" - hard to think the Blue Jays could sweep anyone right now. Lay $75 on the O's + $145.

Arizona over Colorado - gotta take Brandon Webb when the price is reasonable - and it is tonight against Aaron Cook. Lay $75 on the D'Backs - $115.

That's about it for this morning gang...gotta skate.


You can make some very crucial observations and changes today. Take a serious approach to what you want to accomplish. Someone you love may feel left out but right now you have to put yourself and your goals first. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - its cold and rainy today, and I've got a lousy drive in to work...with thoughts of summer days.

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
