Burning Down the House

The Reds have resorted to desperate measures to get buns in the seats. They've giving away free gasoline.

Appropriate, I guess. Relief pitchers are supposed to put out fires, but Cincinnati's pour gasoline on them.

I think Reds have given up on the season.

The Yankees are almost as bad, but being the Yankees, they haven't quite given up. Tonight, the Angels told Shea Hillenbrand that he's being DFA'd on Friday. And some are speculating that that means he's being traded to the Yanks.

Ugh. I'm not wild about that idea. One, Hillenbrand seems like a troublemaker. That's why the Jays got rid of him. Two, he's not that great. A .600 OPS for a DH is nothing to write home about. Three, what will it cost to get him? Four, it probably means Andy Phillips gets DFA'd. I hope this rumor turns out to be untrue.

The Yankees were blanked by the Orioles tonight. It was Clemens vs. Bedard, and Clemens didn't quite look ready for prime time yet.

Of course the game reminded me of Bubba's walkoff homer game. The Yanks struggled against Bedard that night, too. Except Bubba, who went 2 for 3 against him, before he hit the home run off DuBose.

The Yanks sure could've used some of that tonight.

If Andy gets DFA'd without getting a fair shot, I'm gonna go apeshit. (Pardon the French.)

Andy had a nice HR last night. When they complete that game in July, he better still be on the roster. Without Bubba, what other underdog is there to root on?

It was great to see Andy hit that home run. So much for "Andy Phillips can't hit breaking balls." :-D

And I guess Joe was impressed by that home run. Andy is starting again tonight.
