    I really want to root for the Cubs but man does Maddon ruin it for me. Great ending to the game last night however. I’m pulling for a Sox/Cubs world series with the Sox blowing them out 4 straight and Maddon taking none deserving all of the blame.

    My take above.

    I’ve yet to see this reported anywhere but Chris Sales 13.5  K/9 would be the highest K/9 in the history of MLB for a single season. His 10.84 is also the highest lifetime K/9 in MLB history. Granted guys strike out a lot more now than in years past but that’s a big number.

    His 220 ERA+ is only topped by Pedro and Clemens in the AL going back to 1914 and his 0.849 WHIP would be the best in the AL since 1968 and before that 1914. I never thought I’d see someone as dominant as Pedro again in my lifetime but Sale is damn close.

    My favorite Roger Clemens highlights besides the ones in his hair are when he asked to drink water in that press conference and when he wrestled Andy Kaufman.

    I heard talk that Almost A Coach was covering the Revs the other night. Not a good sign for his site, for sure.

    I’m sure he doesn’t like Teal Bumbury (please feel free to insert the name of some other Rev here). At All.

    At which scribe did Clemens throw the hot dog rolls? Was it George Kimball?  Someone from the Herald, anyway. Payback for their verbatim “Rocket In His Own Words” pieces, which deliberately made him look like a moron.

    Good times.

    Jesus, Joe Maddon is going to make me feel sorry for Arod? Arod?

    (Genius Joe apparently “had words” with Arod during a pregame meeting because of Arod hinting about bad team chemistry and essentially calling Yu Darvish a pussy. So far, Iran/Iraq who cares. Of course, Genius Joe then went straight to his media briefing afterward and told them all about it and how tough he was and how he always backs his players, etc etc. ARod ended up under siege and down playing it.)

    I actually don’t mind ARod all that much. Maddon is a far bigger asshole and hypocrite. Never heard a manager throw his players under the bus the way he does—during IN GAME INTERVIEWS no less. “Yeah I’m not happy with him right now…” WTF?! I loathe this showboating, media-pandering phony whose team won the WS despite and not because of anything he did. Good for ARod.

    The piece was pro Maddon, how the hell did this make it in? “Maddon cooled off by the time he walked into the interview room for his pregame briefing with the Chicago media, thinking back to his blue-collar childhood in Pennsylvania’s coal-mining territory.”

    Mets pounding the ball out of Yankee Stadium tonight.  Severino only made it 4 innings . . . throwing 98! pitches.

    BTW, I’m not sure Joe Beningo of WFAN has returned from purgatory after this news of the accused sexual harrassment broke. At least he hasn’t appeared in any of the Joe & Evan podcasts. Whatta Disatuh!

    DeGrom is 7-7 with a 1.81 era.  That’s almost impossible.

    Does anyone else get a not-so-fresh feeling every time Lil Jerry says “pure Patriots porn”?

    Kirky telling folks he was instructed not to say Linda Pizutti’s name on air is about par for the course.

    Morgana King will not be down to sing La Luna ‘Mezzo Mare at any more Corleone family weddings.

    She was 88, meaning she was about 41 when she played Signora Corleone. Of course, Brando was only 47 when the movie was shot.

    Canadian Solder somehow beat Wikipedia and Google search.

    I was behind some douchebag Audi driver today. Gunning the engine and making his exhaust pop like he was some some F1 driver on a warm up lap. All on suburban streets doing 20 MPH. Had an alumni license plate frame and a sticker for his frat, of course.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Better to have him in front of you, rather than peeling him off your rear bumper.

    Actually, Wikipedia had her death up yesterday and earlier today; it must have been a hoax or she got Pat Burnsed.
