Yankees 10, Blue Jays 5
We’re just as bad as everyone else who caters and whores to the Yankees as far as media coverage. The reason is very simple; one of us is a Yankees homer, and one of us likes to look at the wreck after the crash every week. Johnny Damon got his 2,000th career hit in this one, and as ESPN said, A-Rod ‘distracted’ the Blue Jays so the Yanks could win. Now, lets give credit where it is due the guy went 1 for 4 with a RBI and 2 runs. He didn’t fucking ‘distract’ another big league team. Bobby Cano went 4 for 4.
Orioles 3, Royals 0
If this were the NFL, this would be the game in which no one wanted to really win because it was for the 1st pick in the NFL draft. In front of an energetic (I’m so sure) Kansas City crowd of 10,513, Erik Bedard threw 8 shutout innings to get hi 4th win of the season. Nick Markakis hit his 8th homerun of the season, a 2-run pinch hit job.
Marlins 9, Cubs 0
Ted Lilly; the Dirtball (more on that later, I promise–I’m picking my spots), continued to help bury my poor fantasy team. He went 7 innings and gave up 3 bombs an 5 earned runs. He did strike out 9; thank you Ted. Dan Uggla, Josh Willingham, and you guessed it; Miguel Cabrera went yardwork for the Marlins. Those guys are the usual suspects for the Marlins aren’t they?
Reds 4, Astros 3
The Reds won their 3rd game in a row. You know what you call that Reds? A winning streak. Congratu-fucking-lations. The Reds got another big win in what has historically been their house of horrors; Minute Maid Park. Aaron Harang went the distance for the Redlegs as Norris Hopper and Alex Gonzalez had 3 hits a piece. A 3 run first inning in which Adam Dunn singled home an RBI keyed the Reds victory.
Devil Rays 5, Tigers 3
The Devil Rays did their part in helping out the Cleveland Indians by beating the Tigers before the Tigers come into the Jake for a big series with the Tribe. Elijah Dukes gave a black eye to the Tigers with his 10th homerun of the year. All he hits is homeruns. He’s got like, 4 hits that aren’t a solo bomb this season. He’s owned in less than 1% of fantasy leagues. I actually called him a sleeper at one point early in the season, in which I was completely out of my mind. Jorge Cantu had an RBI double, and James Shields went the full 9 innings improving to 4-0 on the season with a 3.13 ERA. This guy may end up the ace that Scott Kazmir has failed to be for the D-Rays.
