Yeah. When I saw the bottom line on ESPN, and saw 14 to 2, I was like "Huh?!".

Hughes pitches today for the Yanks. Think I'll watch that game. ;)

I don't want to jinx anything but I think Papi picked a great time to finally find his power.

Keilty=HUGE upgrade from Willie Mo, thankfully.

Only big question left is JDDrew. :(

Hard to believe it was just 2 years ago the White Sox were the best team in baseball and swept us in the playoffs. Now they let Tavarez dominate them and even Drew hit a home run.

So we'll have at least a 7 game lead headed to the Bronx.

We have at least a 7.5 game lead going into the Bronx on Tuesday and if Verlander dominates then we will be up 8 in the Bronx and all we have to do is win one game there to have a 7 game lead heading into Sept. But our pitching is lined up with Beckett, Dice, Schill against Pettite, Clemens and Wang.

I know the ChiSox aren't very good, but smashing Buerhle and Vasquez is something to be proud of. Garland isn't a push over either. With the pitching and offense rolling then things are looking up. Kielty has been a HUGE pickup by Theo, Drew has been hitting lately (granted most of those hits are singles, but at least he hit a HR today), Schilling looked pretty good and Wakefield is quietly putting together a monster season. :P

Per one of my last posts, I would have been very happy with an 8 game lead heading to the Bronx. If the Tigers can take care of business tomorrow, 8 games it is. The offense finally looks to be awake, hopefully it was just not against the White Sox.

Edit: didn't see the post above me. At least we're all in agreement, LOL.

Mussina vs. Verlander tomorrow. Even if NY does win tomorrow to make it a 7 game lead, they'll still have to sweep us for it to really make a difference.

Mussina is getting lit up...again. Verlander looks good 6-0, end of the 3rd.

No way can they pull Mussina this early and burn out the bull pen for the upcoming Red Sox series.

Third trip to the bullpen...and its still the 7th. Too bad Cabrerra's amazing catch is long forgotten now.

Edit: Thankfully for the Yankees sake, they didn't have to send another pitcher out for the ninth, and the bleeding stopped at 16-0.

On Aug. 19, Mr. G and I headed to San Diego for our annual Petco Park pilgrimage. This time, though, we'd hoped to see Craig Biggio make his final appearance during that day's Padres-Astros game we'd traveled 100-plus miles to see. No such luck: Biggio sat, while Maddux was his brilliant vintage self -- inducing tons o' ground-ball outs and walking non -- and Hoffy added yet another save to his already insane total.

For what it's worth, here's our photo album from that day. Hope you like them! :)http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?...;albumId=971330

If those pics aren't viewable via the link, Top, I'll post 'em here.

This is yours truly, outside Petco Park before that day's game:

A view within the park itself:

Closer Brad Lidge signs for fans:

Me and Mr. GSBG, happy for the Pads' 5-3 victory, a vintage Maddux performance (no walks and loads of groundouts), and yet another save by Trevor Hoffman:

Finally, we had a chance to check out the brand-new statue of Tony Gwynn, recently inducted into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Here I am ...

... and here's Mr. G, showing the love!
