With Dodgers and Padres losing, if the Rocks can hold on to this 5-2 lead, they will close the gap to 4 1/2.

The usual time of year before the annual slide.

*edit* It was Giants and Padres losing, not Dodgers. I'm crazy.

Mets end their five game losing streak by beating the Yankees 2-0. Reyes with an awesome night going 3-3 with one walk, 1 hr, 2 rbi, and 3 sb.

Every time I bench someone on my fantasy team(ie Oliver Perez) they always do good.

Mangini will probably end up at 1st, and I'll be surprised if he's in AA to start next year.

All that matters is that he swings lefty and he's flashed offensive ability (he was thought of as the no. 2 bat behind Weiters in the pre-season).

If anyone's gonna replace Beltre, in the future, it's gonna be Carlos Triunfel...he's in low-A right now.

Nah, he's a pretty bad option as a DH. He's actually been league-average (which is better than anything we've had for a while at that spot), but your DH shouldn't be a slap hitter.

Gammons said we're looking at Buerlhe (or however you spell his name). To get a guy like that, though, we'd have to sacrifice some sweet talent for a guy who probably won't even stick around after the season.

Rockies "held on", alright. 12 - 2. Wouldn't it be sweet if they couold sweep the Rays? Makes for a more interesting pre-All Star scenario. But I am not so sure that we will see the annual swoon. But it does depend on that swing through the left coast......

That's the second straight game in which the Rockies handed a previously unbeaten starter his first loss of the season.

Nice to see Holliday snapping out of his RBI drought.

Never heard of Carlos Triunfel until you mention, he's really young. 17? Wow. Couple of years. . . 3-4 and maybe we'll see him, eh?

Nice to see the great reception for Dave Roberts. Bonds of course got the reception everone expected (the asterisks were a nice touch). Pedroia 5 for 5 with 5 RBI's .Gotta love this kid.

Padres and Cubs just had a nice little go 'round. Chris Young plunked Derrek Lee, words were exchanged as Lee went to first and Lee & Young started throwing punches at each other (neither landed). Benches & bullpens emptied, the whole nine. There was a pile up and Carlos Zambrano looked like he wanted to a piece of someone from the opposing team for a change.

I guess the back story here is that Jake Peavy was quoted in the paper responding to Alfonso Soriano posing and admiring his home run from yesterday with, "I'd like to see the next guy take one in the ribs." This is the second time in a week that Soriano has drawn the ire of an opponent by showing up the opposing pitcher after a home run.

Here's the article.

Strutting Soriano infuriates Padres.

CHICAGO – On a festive afternoon at Wrigley Field, the Bleacher Bums couldn't contain themselves and neither could Cubs slugger Alfonso Soriano.

The Padres were pretty much bystanders to a 4-1 defeat, able only to threaten an unimposing pitcher, Ted Lilly, and unable to match the slugging power of Soriano and rookie Mike Fontenot.

The game itself, though, was almost incidental to the antics of two intrusive fans and Soriano, whose behavior drew strong comments afterward from Padres pitchers David Wells and Jake Peavy.

Let's start with Soriano. A former Yankees teammate of Wells, he is widely admired among players for his durability and for whipping an unusually heavy bat.

However, admiration isn't what Soriano inspired from the Padres in the sixth inning yesterday after he swatted a Wells pitch over the left-field wall and onto Waveland Avenue.

Soriano sashayed backward toward first base for several strides, admiring his solo homer and 11th overall, which had just made the score 4-1. It came three at-bats after Fontenot's two-run home run broke a 1-1 tie.

Wells didn't see Soriano's strut because he was watching the ball, but the entire Padres dugout got a good look.

“I didn't appreciate that. Just play the game,” Peavy said. “They pay him $136 million to hit home runs. They don't pay him to be a circus act on the field. If I think a player shows me up like that, I like the next guy to take one in the stinkin' ribs. That way, his teammate will let him know about it, (he) will tell him, 'Hey, you'd better run the bases.'

“Respect the game. That's the way it used to be. When you were growing up, did you see anybody act like that? Now it's accepted.”

Wells said he could understand a hitter preening after walloping a “massive” home run that, say, clears Waveland and strikes a building. But that wasn't the case. “I don't like people to show me up,” he said. “Respect the game. I take offense when people stare at (their home run). I don't show (hitters) up. I respect the game and the players.”
--------------------

I like it. Far too many hitters these days are admiring their shots and walking up the line staring at their home runs before they break into a trot. You show up the pitcher, you pay the price, that's the way it should be.

I highly doubt Young hit Lee on purpose...the count was 1-2. If he was going to plunk someone it would be Soriano. There is no reason for Young to have been ejected. I guess he's just supposed to stand there and take it.

Jake Peavy also got ejected. I didn't see it, but I guess he tackled Lee.

F the Cubs.

(Edit: I guess during the melee...Carlos Zambrano took off his belt. What a maroon.)

The Madres claim their third 1-0...two hit win of the season. This game had a little of everything.

If they were even average offensively...they'd be really tough to beat.

Maybe pitchers should do a dance when they strike out Soriano. Just a small hopping sort of dance with a fanfare from the speakers...... TA DAH!!!!!

Garrett Atkins has now homered in three straight games. A blip on the radar? Or is he coming out of his season long funk? Angry roto owners want to know!

As I recall, Mike Ivie really hit the hell out of the ball in Dodger Stadium.

Damn, Rockies lookin like they are going to beat the DRays here. If they hang on to this lead, it will push them 2 above .500 and 4.5 games behind the Padres I believe.
As for All-Stars, I think Holliday is a given for the All-Star game. Brad Hawpe maybe, will have to see how he stacks up against other outfielders. Helton I think is a no becuase of Pujols and Prince already a given to go. Fuentes again has a good shot, but might not go if a team needs a rep and all they have is a decent pitcher to send.
If Francis had a better record I think he would be considered.
I say Holliday for sure now, and possibly Hawpe. If Helton really tears it up in the next few weeks to get 10+ homeruns and his average over .330, maybe.
