Have a go at it. I'll be back with baseball stuff after the game.
Suffice to say that the Crystal Ball was wrong for the first time.

How much deeper can this team sink without George dumping someone?
If anyone goes who will it be?

  • Cashman
  • Torre
  • Stottlemyer
  • Skippy
  • Michael Kay

Randy Johnson gets the ball and the chance to contribute ( be the pitcher we thought he would be )tonight and end this drought.
The Mets are looking for their first sweep at Yankee stadium and how hot do you think George will be if that happens?
It looks like the Yanks are starting a rook in left field, Kevin Reese makes his major league debut.

Reese, 27, was batting .272 (83-for-305) with 22 doubles, 8 HR, 37 RBI and 51 runs scored in 73 games with Columbus this season (60 starts in LF, 3 starts in CF, 7 starts as DH). He is tied for second in the International League in doubles and he ranks fifth among IL hitters in runs scored. Prior to having his contract purchased, he had a season-high 13-game hitting streak and was batting .370 (20-for-54) in those 13 games since June 10. From April 7-28, he reached base safely in 21 consecutive games, the longest such streak by a Clipper this year.
