    Ned Yost was fired today from the Brewers…maybe the Yankees called in saying Yost was making CC throw too many pitches and that he might damage himself for when they have him.

    This is totally unrelated, but Lilly is through 6 with no hits, following Zambrano’s no-no last night.

    This thread is fucked.

    That story was unreadable. Can the author write a full paragraph instead of making insignificant details looks important by giving them their own line?

      Yeah, I know what you mean. The article read more like a transcript of a narrative than an actual developed article. However, structure aside, it was a very interesting read.
