Pitching! By Jack Healey

Remember when we all wanted Clay Buchholz traded anywhere for a bag of balls? I know I did.

That was a much needed win last night.

It would be nice to have sole possession of first place going into Toronto this weekend.

Yes that means rooting for the Yankees one more day.

I remember last year in the NFL when Philadelphia beat the Patriots and Patriot haters were giddy and that included just about every Giant fan I know. Of course the Giants are in the same division as Philadelphia and it was one of the teams they were fighting for a playoff spot so it made no sense to be rooting for Philly over the Patriots. No matter how you cut it, it was Stupid! Just as stupid as rooting for Toronto to beat the Yankees if you’re a Red Sox fan.

Happy Birthday ESPN! ESPN debuted on this date in 1979!
