Extra Innings: 05/02/07

Marz’s thoughts:  There were two great starts in yesterdays action and neither got the win for it. Well, one team got the win and that was in Los Angeles where Brad Penny pitched well. He has looked good all year and is one of the main reasons why LA is on top in the NL West.
Curt Schilling had one of his best starts of the year but a blown save by Jonathan Papelbon cost him the win. I hate to see older pitchers who you know aren’t going to have many more opportunities for wins in the Major Leagues lose out like that.
P.S. – Another reason the Dodgers are on top is Alyssa Milano is their biggest fan! Have you seen her blog?!?   Alyssa Milano’s blog!

Cuch’s thoughts:  17 hits and another win later and the best team in baseball is the Milwaukee Brewers. How about that? They have solid pitching. Jeff Suppan looks great. He just bought a house near the ballpark and the 1-2 punch of Turnbow and Cordero is looking sharp!
P.S. – Has everyone gotten their vote in for Cleveland’s Ultimate Wedding Giveaway yet? If not, pick a winner now and get that couple hitched at Home Plate!    Indians Wedding Giveaway!

Extra Innings: 05/01/07

Program Note: Another great edition of Under the Bus Tuesday – remember to get yours in for next week!

Marz’s thoughts:  Tomorrow on the show, we will break down the swing of David Wright who ever since the Home Run Derby in 2006 has been struggling with his offense. He is not keeping his hands close to his body and i will get to the bottom of the issue tomorrow.
P.S. – I just met our Marlins reporter Joe Frisaro today and he is one stand up guy…unlike our producer Chris Caron!

Cuch’s thoughts:  Despite the change in colors to the jersey, fans in Arizona are getting the same old Brandon Webb. He had only 2 k’s but you can not argue with 7.0 innings of work and just 1 run allowed. He grabbed yet another win and his club posted 17 hits en route to a win over LA. Brandon Webb and Jake Peavy will make for a great Cy Young race down the stretch.
P.S. – I am also throwing the defending champion Miami Heat under the bus for getting swept out of the playoffs and I am throwing the NASCAR fans under the bus for being classless and throwing stuff at Jeff Gordon after he won his race. That is ridiculous!
