Marz’s thoughts: Not only was Mark Buerhle great in his no-hitter in Chicago but I give alot of credit to AJ Pierzynski as well. As a catcher, in situations like this one, it is a real honor to be associated with the accomplishment. I was disheartened watching the ball go through Randy Johnson’s legs when i was catching in a game in Seattle. It was the closest I ever was to being a part of a no-hitter. The date was July 16th, 1998 vs. the Minnesota Twins at the Kingdome. Brent Gates got the only hit that day against RJ.
P.S. – Vinny wore a Mark Buerhle shirt in studio today showing that he has WAY too many shirts and my guess is he will wear his A-Rod shirt tomorrow because he is nothing but a front runner!
Cuch’s thoughts: Thank goodness that Sanjaya is finally out of American Idol. Personally, i couldn’t care less who wins the thing. I just like Simon because he is the only one is gives legit statements…however, Sanjaya was a debacle and no longer funny!
P.S. – Bobby Cox signed an extension with the Braves and that is great news for the organization. When Cox, the Jones’ and Smoltz leave – i will be sad to see the official end of the dynasty in Atlanta.
