Tards Fans Are Worrying About The Choke

Suddenly I feel like an "admin bitch"...OttawaTilt

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in.

Technical issues this morning so I’m asking Tilt to post this one for me.

If you were expecting to see a raving review of last night’s game at Scotiabank Place – forget it. We’re still not sold on the Sabres, we won’t get excited until they win Game 6 here next week – the Sabres broke out to a 3-0 last night and had to hang on for dear life (with a very shortened bench) for twenty plus minutes last night; they can thank Ryan Miller for stealing the win last night…they should have lost. But we aren’t going to get into specifics about last night’s game – we know when we’re being teased…hangin out with Renee will teach you some valuable life lessons that way.

Still though, forgive us if we start daydreaming about the ultimate collapse in this series and with it branding the SenaTards THE biggest playoff chokers in the last quarter century. You’d think Buffalo has to win at least ONE game at home (Saturday) – and if they managed to pull that off, the momentum would certainly carry over to a win in Game 6 back here at Scotiabank Place – AND if they did that, you’d have to think that they couldn’t possibly lose three home games in one series…right? But we aren’t going to get into that.

Red Sox West surprised everyone last night by managing to take two of three from the Cardinals – Wilson Betemit was the hero last nigh coming off the bench in the bottom of the fifth to pinch hitter for starter Randy Wolf and hitting a three-run shot to put the Dodgers ahead for good; ah the great thing about having the Majors’ best bullpen.

Buffalo Sabres G Ryan Miller frustrated the Tards all night, making 31 saves, (with at least six of them coming from point blank range in the slot) to lead the Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the Tards last night. We’re not getting overly excited, but…

As mentioned, Red Sox West sometimes 3B Wilson Betemit came off the bench to hit a three-run homer in the Dodgers 5-4 victory over the Cards. Is that really enough to get one of Hazel’s Stars? It is if you are calling the shots – membership has its privileges.

Philadelphia Phillies P Cole Hamels pitched another great game last night against the NL leading Brewers (going into last night’s action) – giving up two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out eleven over eight innings of work – he was perfect through six innings. A great addition to the Maeple Leafs – thank you Renee.

Yesterday was ugly – really ugly; but we haven’t had a bad day like that in a long time. We’ll figure out the totals tomorrow; we’ll worry about getting back on track today.

Milwaukee over Philadelphia – we’ll go with Ben Sheets to get it done today and prevent a sweep at the hands of the Phillies…plus, we’re not sold on Garcia. Lay $100 on the Brewers - $115.

Minnesota over Cleveland – we’ve given Fausto Carmona some respect this year…but its Johan Santana today. Lay $100 on the Twins - $130.

Boston over Detroit – Mike Maroth’s numbers against Boston are brutal…really ugly, so this one is more about Maroth’s problem over any faith we have in Julian Tavarez. Lay $100 on the Sox - $180.

That’s about it for today gang – sorry we’re late with this morning’s post. Special thanks to my man Tilt for working at a place that has “relaxed” internet restrictions.

Litsch stays in rotation – Ohka to bullpen…desperation is now spelled R-O-J-O

Leafs sign defence prospect from Sweden – too bad McCabe’s contract is still valid

HAZEL’S THURSDAY HOROSCOPEYou'll discover a new angle to an old idea. Don't hesitate to follow through and see where it takes you. Travel will be to your advantage. Don't lose sleep over a love loss -- it won't be worth it. 4 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps – its Celtic songstress Enya’s birthday today…

Caribbean Blue – Enya

Peesth Out…Buh Bye!
