Pitching is such a vital part of the game, as far as winning is concerned.

On most teams the set up man has become more valuable, on others not so valuable.

Something to keep in mind — it’s raining lightly. The infield could be very wet on ground balls.

What is a drop and drive pitcher? He is a guy who drops and drives. Very simple.

So by guessing right you might have guessed wrong.

Giambi walks too much. He’s always clogging up the bases with all that walking.

As a new day begins in New York, the sun sets in Hawaii.

If football is a game of inches then baseball is a game of inch.

If that ball had more elevation, it would have been a home run.

If the double play is a pitcher’s best friend, what is a fielder’s choice? An acquaintance?

It’s better to have a fast runner on base than a slow one.

One thing about ground balls. They don’t go out of the ball park.

The reason we call that pitch up and in is because the arms are attached to the shoulder.

He wears his hat like a left hander!

Any ball that goes down is much heavier than any ball that stays on the same plane.

The blood on his sock looks exactly like Oklahoma!

You don't want to use too many statistics. The ones that apply to a July or August game won't be relevant on Saturday.

American McCarver

Another first!

A-Rod is the first player ever to strikeout as the final out of his team’s postseason in consecutive seasons.

Also, according to Business Insider, where I get all my baseball news, he’s just a bad investment.

Ryan Howard might join him tonight, you realize.

Fingers crossed.

You guys are real math whizzes. Sure, the Big Piece might strike out to end the Phillies season tonight, but it would make him the second overpaid millionaire to do it.

The honor of being the first will always belong to A-Rod.

2 for 18 in the series. Not one extra base hit. Six years left on his contract.

“Join him.” So basically… yes, there would be two members of the I Let My Team Down club. But A-Rod gets to choose his seat first.

And Ryan Howard was the final out! Too bad A-Rod’s record still stands, thanks to Howard grounding out.
