Extra Innings: 05/30/07
Marz’s thoughts: With all that happened in Major League Baseball yesterday, we overlooked a very dominant performance by Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny who is now 7-1 with a 2.06 era. He was the NL All Star starting pitcher in 2006 and tends to start well and then slow in the 2nd half. Hopefully for the LA Dodgers, after the All-Star break, he continues to pitch the same way. With San Diego and Arizona playing so well, he is going to have to.
P.S. – Vinny is going to the Mets-Giants game tonight and I hear he plans to barge in and do play-by-play!
Cuch’s thoughts: So how many of the approximately 50,000 fans at Shea Stadium will be booing Barry Bonds? Why exactly are they booing Barry Bonds? Is it the steroids? Is it is his personality? Plus, how many of those fans as long as the game is not close will actually WANT to see Bonds hit a homerun on the night they are there? Sure, I have my suspicions about Bonds, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that we are still watching one of the greatest players of our generation.
P.S. – John Gibbons’ decision to send Aaron Hill from 3rd is among the best managerial moves of the season just because of the situation and status of both teams!
