Extra Innings: 06/07/07
Marz’s thoughts: Jimmy Rollins put his money where his mouth was and hit a 3-run homer beating the Mets after his declaring this year that "the phillies were the team to beat in the NL East". If the Phillies win today, they will be 6 games out of first while inching closer to Atlanta in 2nd. I have seen this show before for the last 5 years. Hopefully this year they can play well the entire way through and finally make the playoffs for the first time since 1993.
P.S. – Looking forward to wearing my "shorty shorts" on the show tomorrow while I hear everyone else is not.
Cuch’s thoughts: How about that? Joe Torre did NOT leave the dugout and pull a pitcher during last nights win over the White Sox. Chien Ming-Wang pitched 9 beautiful innings to give the pen a rest and give the Yankees their 5th win in their last 7 games.
P.S. – Everyone enjoy the "Johan Santana Perfect Game Bowling" tourney in Minneapolis. Also, don’t forget the SHORTY SHORTS! There is still more from what i understand in the vault. Chris the producer is trying to get it out there!
