Edward Cossette: "Twenty games. Twenty days. It's a true fact, to use the vernacular of freshman composition students, that the pennant cannot be won in the next twenty days, but it sure can be lost. This is a time for brave hearts, Red Sox fans." (Bambino's Curse)
This trip appeals to Astros. They're going to New York and Boston for the first time. (Houston Chronicle)
Chat wrap: Rob Neyer, June 6.
Big bad wolf: Hi Rob - what about the Jays? Riccardi strikes me as an excellent GM with a current 2 year plan. Given their hitting so far this year, do you think he might change gears and be a pitching buyer this summer?(ESPN.com)
Cotton-Eyed Joe Morgan Chat Day.
Brian (NYC): In your opinion, who is the best of all time at robbing homeruns in the outfield? To me that is the most exciting play in baseball.(Mike's Baseball Rants, June 9 entry)
Jon Weisman: "As far as the Dodgers tying the Giants and then falling five games behind, it recalls what I wrote April 22 when the Dodgers fell behind by 8 1/2 games early this season, but pledged they could make up the difference. It's not enough to merely be able to make up the difference. The problem with making up such a deficit is that all it gets you to is square one. That said, the Dodgers remain only 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot right now..." (Dodger Thoughts)
John J Perricone: "I was just looking through the hitting statistics of all the National League teams, and I was wondering if anyone but me has noticed what a bunch of weak singles hitters the Giants seem to have become?" (Only Baseball Matters)
