The New York Mets got news yesterday that Tom Glavine will soon be back. Then they got news that they traded for Shawn Green for a AAA pitcher...Then they found themselves down 7-1 to Albert Pujols. Pujols had a 3-run HR and a grand slam off of our current ace, John Maine. Then Carlos Delgado homered twice (including his 400th career) and we were left down 7-6 in the 9th. After a Paul LoDuca single, Beltran capped off an eventful day by rocking Jason Isringhausen's first pitch over the right field wall. Mets now lead Cards by 10 games in the NL. Cards lead over Cincy shrinks to 1. Whew, good day to be a Mets fan!
The Yankees got walked off by Adrian Beltre (juicing again?), but little is lost as the Red Sox fell on their faces again. According to ESPN.com, Cashman said the Yankees are losing money this year and lost $50 million last year. Revenue sharing needs some fixing.
Justin Gatlin accepted an 8-year ban from Track and Field after testing positive for testosterone. I bet he won't be as fast when he's 32.
Attention all haters: Tigers beat White Sox again. How you feeling about the 7.5 game lead, "experts"??
