  1. Joltin' Joe says:

    Yo what’s the little song clip FOX plays at the end of every half-inning? Almost sounds like REM but it isn’t.

  2. Mike Pop says:

    South Park or Family Guy ?

  3. Mike Pop says:

    Thanks for the free tacos !

  4. Joltin' Joe says:

    The British dude reminds me of an unrelated thing: I heard that baseball is rising in popularity in Britain of all places. Australia is much further along, obviously but im still surprised, when I asked some British dude on Xbox if he knew what MLB 2k8 was… CANT WAIT FOR MLB Front Office Manager with teh Beane!!!!

  5. Mike A. says:

    Here it is. The beginning of the end. Downhill for Hamels now.

  6. UWS says:

    Good grief, my grandmother could play better 1b than Ryan Howard.

  7. Jay says:

    Joe Madden thinks that was “bullshit”.

  8. Joltin' Joe says:

    Why do Honda/Toyota put HP in their hatchbacks? i was looking at specs the other day and one of em had like 165!!!!!! ZOMG

  9. Ivan says:

    Speaking FG, here’s a great clip my friend sent me.


  10. Jamal G. says:

    What in God’s name is Ryan Howard swinging at?

  11. Ivan says:

    I thought that last pitch was a strike.

  12. Jamal G. says:

    Heh, which is dumber to do for a family network: mic-up a NBA player or a MLB player?

  13. UWS says:

    The umps have some mad cash riding on Philly, don’t they.

  14. Mike A. says:

    Are they really going to leave Howell in to pitch to Burrell? Get Bradford in there, that’s what he’s there for, to annihilate righties.

  15. Jamal G. says:

    Where in the fuck was that pitch?

  16. Mike A. says:

    Where the hell was that pitch?

  17. Jamal G. says:

    Ah man, you know that chic get’s owned at school for her ears. Jesus.

  18. Mike A. says:

    You don’t see fastballs like that in the NL East, do you Shane?

  19. UWS says:

    Hmm, no Kate Smith cameo?

  20. Jamal G. says:

    Will there ever be an attractive woman in the WNBA or armed forces? Eck.

  21. Jamal G. says:

    Tell me, is this one of the most boring one-run games in a World Series? Or is it just the fact that it’s Game One, so there’s no real pressure.

  22. Jamal G. says:

    Heh, now that bat knows how Brad Lidge felt like…

  23. A.D. says:

    Was Madson essentially bad as a starter for the Phils?

  24. A.D. says:

    Madson brining gas

  25. E-ROC says:

    Hey Rollins, swing at a strike.

  26. A.D. says:

    Its fun just watching Balfour and Madson throw fastballs

  27. Mike A. says:

    You know who Balfour is? He’s a freaking carbon copy of Brian Bruney.

  28. Mike A. says:

    Hah, Miller’s stat line was great. 4 games, 2/3 IP.

  29. Mike A. says:

    Man, Ryan Howard sucks so bad.

  30. E-ROC says:

    Poor Howard. That was right down the middle.

  31. Joltin' Joe says:

    Was reading some stats and saw the Carl Crawford DID INDEED have just 12 doubles this year. in 443 abs. Thats about what Jeter does, right Michael A??? haha

  32. Mike A. says:

    Wow, no pinch hitter for Bruntlett? PH Stairs and put Taguchi in LF next inning.

  33. A.D. says:

    why isnt dobbs pinch hitting

  34. A.D. says:

    was that 2 tacos with the double steal?

  35. Mike A. says:

    Time for Lidge to make this interesting.

  36. Jamal G. says:

    Does Brad Lidge nail it down here?

    I say no.

  37. Ivan says:

    Yo that Slider is sick.

  38. A.D. says:

    ohhh a sinker & slider are 2 different pitches

    who knew?

  39. Ivan says:

    I don’t think Longoria saw sliders like that in college.

  40. Jamal G. says:

    Come on, finish up before the clock hits midnight.

  41. A.D. says:

    Ballgame, Lidge basically no problem nailing that one down

  42. Mike A. says:

    Enjoy it Phils. You’re going to get your ass handed to you in the next 3 games.

  43. Ivan says:

    Phils Win.

  44. Jamal G. says:

    Heh, checkout Chris Myers with the shameless plug of FOX’s awesome show, Fringe.

  45. E-ROC says:

    Ken Rosenthal has to be about 5′.

  46. Jamal G. says:

    If everything goes right with Jake McGee’s rehab, who has the highest ceiling – and probability of reaching said ceiling – between McGee, Jeremy Hellickson, Wade Davis and Wade Townsend?
