Trenton masters “The Master”…again

Game 140: Phil of the Future faces Seattle
A-Rod blasts two as Mariners use every pitcher in baseball

If the Yanks put IPK on the playoff roster, he might have to change his wedding date. Great quote by Torre on ths situation:

“I didn’t get one of the invitations,” he [Torre] said. “We just hope his prospective wife is very understanding.”

IPK said he has to talk to his fiancee before offering an opinion on the matter. (that’s a marriage joke, haha)

A-Rod blasts two as Mariners use every pitcher in baseball
  • Mike R.

    Why isn’t Nick Chigges getting more love? The guy is pitching out of his mind and seems to have a rubber arm. Just incredible stats.

    • John

      Chigges ERA is down to 2.29 w/ only 1 run in last 21 innings of relief, not bad.

  • Wordekemper = Wizard

    granny?

      Grand slam.

    As a recently married guy, Mike you ought to know that the groom is really no more important than the flowers, dress or cake.

    You are an accessory in this whole thing, who’s sole purpose is to not screw it up.

      to quote the men’s wearhouse commercial, “when everybody’s looking at her, she’ll be looking at you, [so don’t fuck up, or she will never let you forget it.]”
