All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

One you gave away
Will be the only one you're wishing for...

The Yanks won a roller coaster of a game today, thanks to Andy Phillips. He had a great day, at the plate and in the field. Kim Jones interviewed him after the game, and a slick diving play of his was chosen play of the game. He's been very solid on offense and defense for a guy nobody wanted at the beginning of the season.

Another Yankees discard, Carlos Pena, was a big reason the game was such a roller coaster. He hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the 7th. He's having a great year - a guy the Yanks threw away last year.

Also having a good year is Reds discard Brendan Harris, the Rays' shortstop. Well, they didn't exactly throw him away. They traded him, but it wasn't for much. "A PTBNL or cash," I think it was. I never heard a player named, so maybe it was just cash. Man, I just don't get it. Why would the Reds practically give away a player like that?

Boston lost today, so the Yanks are only 9 games back. Single digits!

Bats radio announcer Jim Kelch says he's going to try to get a Bubba Crosby update from trainer Chris Lapole tomorrow. I will of course be listening, and will pass on any info.
