  1. TurnTwo says:

    good first inning for Bleich.

  2. E-ROC says:

    Erin Andrews looks good in blue.

    Bleich has that curveball going today.

    • Mike A. says:

      Erin Andrews looks good in most things.

      • TurnTwo says:

        and prob looks best in nothing.

        • tommiesmithjohncarlos says:

          I’m sorry, I don’t see it. Erin Andrews is utterly average. This sports blogosphere with Erin Andrews has clearly veered off into Star Wars/Star Trek level geekery crushes on Princess Leia or Uhuru.

          Just because she’s the one person on the broadcast you’re watching who has a pair of knockers and doesn’t have a beard doesn’t make her pretty. It just makes her a woman. There are tons of women everywhere; put down your homemade laser blaster replica and go talk to one.

  3. Mike A. says:

    Nice clean 1-2-3 to start the game.

  4. Yankees=warriors says:

    I wish I could watch this game. I’ll bet it beats the current Yankee-Reds game.
    I hate watching us getting shutout by another rookie…

    • TurnTwo says:

      it absolutely baffles me how this team plays against rookies, or pitchers they havent seen before.

      • Yankees=warriors says:

        Tell me about it! And when it’s our rookies out there, they get pounded. However, Geise is doing a good job, hope the offense won’t waste his efforts.

  5. TurnTwo says:

    Bleich has a nice, fluid motion… doesnt look like he exudes much effort at all.

  6. Chip says:

    This college gametracker beats gameday hands down

  7. E-ROC says:

    That was a terrible shift, even though it would’ve ended being a double anyway.

    Toby Gerhart is big dude. I guess it helps to be on the football team.

    Orel Hershiser is great. I wonder how terrible Steve Phillips would sound calling this game. Thank God we won’t ever find out.

  8. E-ROC says:

    Fastball on the black. K’d!

  9. Mike A. says:

    To paraphrase Ken Singleton, Bleich is working the corners like a cop on the beat.

  10. E-ROC says:

    Bad luck.

  11. Mike A. says:

    Futile attempt at getting out of the way on that one.

  12. E-ROC says:

    Bleich’s command has been great. Just bad luck scored that run on a bloop single. If the bat was made of wood, I don’t think that single happens.

  13. E-ROC says:

    Good imitation of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

  14. TurnTwo says:

    Stanford needs to stop swings at AWFUL pitches out of the K zone.

  15. TurnTwo says:

    ‘Castro the Astro” seems like something Michael Kay would come up with. he needs to stop saying that.

  16. E-ROC says:

    What stuff does Bleich have?

  17. Mark B says:

    Bleich reminds me of a very young Tom Glavine….

  18. Baseballnation says:


  19. Mike A. says:

    Wow, going to the closer in the 4th inning…

    • E-ROC says:

      I wonder what would happen if the Yanks brought in Mo in the 4th inning of a playoff game.

      • Mike A. says:

        They would be ripped apart by every media outlet in the country.

        UNC did the same thing last year. Their starter was getting hammered in Game 2 of the CWS (they were down in 1-0 in the best of 3), and they brought in their closer in the 2nd inning.

  20. TurnTwo says:

    well, not exactly the best afternoon for yankees fans to enjoy some baseball.

  21. E-ROC says:

    there is no quit in stanford.

  22. E-ROC says:

    It’s nice watching college baseball games, especially when you get to see the nice blondes in stands make cameos.

    • Mike A. says:

      Man, I went to the CWS in 2005, and I swear, it’s like a super hot chick competition. They keep getting better and better looking as the days go on.

  23. E-ROC says:

    That homerun might just do it.

  24. Mike A. says:

    That homer might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.

  25. TurnTwo says:

    time to go to the tivo and watch the Netherlands/Russia Euro 08 match.

  26. Mike A. says:

    Josh Fields’ sporting a Mariner’s hat.

  27. E-ROC says:

    Josh Fields is taking it in the a$$ right now. 10-8 Georgia in the bottom of the 9th inning.
