Well, I guess I'll look at this start from Baneulos as being a glass that's "half full".
NOTES: Lefthander Manny Banuelos pitched just his second game of the season at the Triple-A level and the results were…interesting. In three-plus innings, Banuelos tossed 68 pitches, only 30 for strikes. He allowed just one hit, but walked six and struck out three. After walking three through the first three innings, Banuelos gave free passes to the first three batters in the fourth inning. He was pulled for Chris Leroux, who got Scranton/Wilkes-Barre out of the jam unscathed with a groundout, strikeout and flyout. Despite the loss of control, Banuelos didn’t permit a runner to score. The wild start comes on the heels of a very good 2014 debut for Banuelos with the RailRiders. On Aug. 12 he allowed just two hits, one walk and one run (earned) in five innings, striking out four.
Why on earth would Joe Torre do this, more than a week after the game was over??
I almost don't want to go the Joe Torre Day this Saturday now.
NEW YORK -- It turns out you can rewrite history.
Derek Jeter's hit that tied Honus Wagner on the all-time hit list has been changed to an error by MLB executive vice president Joe Torre.
In the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter because Jeter has had six hits since then, putting him at sixth on the all-time list with 3,435. Wagner had 3,430.
On the changed first-inning play from Aug. 8, Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez ranged to his left behind second base, did a full spin and threw off balance to first baseman Carlos Santana, who dropped the ball. It would have been a close play if Santana had hung on, but replays appear to show that Jeter would have been out. Read more.
Great speech, and job, Ms Steinbrenner-Swindal. (You forgot to mention Catfish though).
Sounds like Derek Jeter is next.
Add Alex Rodriguez, Mariano rivera, and joe torre to the ALS ice bucket list.
