Not a way I like to start my week....

It's Monday night, and I am pissed. I am realizing that I missed 100% of today's game, forgot it was a day timer - no wonder they lost!!!

Throw on just for kicks that we allowed a terrorist who has facilitated the killing of American soldiers to give a lecture at Columbia, and I can just tell this is going to be a wonderful f$%^&! week.

How big of an idiot is Milton Bradley? Tears his ACL doing what he has done in the past (arguing with an Ump) and is done for the rest, and most critical part of the season. All this while his team is trying to hang onto the Wild Card. What a pinhead.

2 games back of the Sox with 6 to go - our reign on the East is probably at an end. I believe we can/will clinch Wild Card tomorrow.

Yeah, and that crimson jihad puke had the audacity to want to visit Ground Zero... He would have been assasinated if word got out that he was going to make an appearance there.

The Mets lost.. AGAIN... Consider this season one of the worst.. if not the worst season in Mets history.. worse than 1962.

I love seeing the implosion of the bolts in San Diego. I love LT, don't get me wrong, but AJ Smith has a HUGE bite mark on his ass right now for firing a 14-2 head coach and hiring a perennial loser. AJ should be fired tomorrow....

Regarding the Yanks losing to Toronto, they played like a team on the verge of making the playoffs and realizing first place will be difficult. They finished the day with a wizard of oz display and a tie for the wildcard. The wildcard will be lockedup tonight in Tampa.

57, the mets lose, but still remain in first place. Exactly how can that be as bad as 1962 (which by the way was before you were born). Having said that, the state of their starting pitching does raise the question how long they will last in the playoffs.

Trying to avoid as much cotroversy politically as possible. While I found it difficult to support the decision to let the Iranian President Speak at Columbia, the fact of the matter is he made himself look and sound like a total ignorant ass. If the Mullahs back in Iran were watching, they really can't be happy with his performance. There may have been a method to Columbia's President madness on this topic. Besides Mid, free speech is one of the major tenents that this country was based on. Remember the concept of " I may not agree with what you are saying, but I will die defending your right to say it". Isn't that supposed to be the reason we are in Iraq - bringing freedom to an oppressed people?

Kei Igawa gets the start... chalk up this loss

Ok... wow! We were down 10-3 in the bottom of the ninth and we came back only to lose 10-9. Heart, Shmart... how bad is the bullpen. Prof, how can you say we'll make the playoffs..?? I am embarassed as a fan to make the playoffs right now. The Phillies helped them tonight by losing... if the Phillies had a team, they would be up by 7 games right now.

Prof, President John F. Kennedy said, "We must face the fact that United States is neither omnipotent nor omniscent, that we are only 6% of the world's population, that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94% of mankind, that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity, and that therefore cannot be an American solution to EVERY world problem."

But he also said, "I need to get some tonight. Where is Marilyn" .. so I guess it's all relative.

Igwa pitches five innings of shutout ball giving the Yankees the opportunity to clinch the wildcard, only to have Bruney cough up a grandslam. Great pitching line from the sixth inning: four walks, two hits and six runs. Bruney may have just pitched himself off the postseason roster. Jose Veras pitched will and Farnsworth (two days in a row no less) was lights out. New windup new results. Lesson to learn for him - keep runners off base so you don't have to pitch from the stretch.

57, the Mets are playing the Nationals while the Phillies are playing the Braves. You hit it right when you said if the Phillies had any kind of team. They don't so put the prozac away, pop some pocorn and watch the Mets clinch the east. I still am trying to figure out what point you were tryiing to make with the JFK quote (not about Monroe - the other quote). You also tended to cover the entire world of sports with approximately five sentences - change the medication please.

The Yankees keep saying Clemens is fine except for a little tweak. They have now indicated they will not pitch him in the Tampa series at all. Maybe the elbow is barking again.

I missed the post game last night. Did they say why the yanked Igawa after 5? Was it pitch count or did Torre just want to piss him off by not giving him the chance to get a win??

Bruney will not be on the postseason roster. His attitude sucks. They'll give him another shot in the pre-season - I hope they cut the clown pronto.

Torre pulled Igwa because he had thrown 87 pitches and run out of gas. There was no thought in avoiding getting him the win. When he left it was 5-0. Regarding Bruney, the Yankees are finding out why Arizona was willing to release him. You can throw as hard as you want, but if you can't throw strikes or have movement, the fastball isn't worth spit.

First Reggie Bush is not overrated. If you saw what he gave you in college that's what he's going to give you in the NFL. He's a 20-25 touch guy that will give you 125 total yards. He's a high-end outlet guy, nothing more. Take him for what he is, and he meets expectations.

Karstens gives up more runs at the pro-level...nothing new for this season. The Yanks should like to trade him in the off-season.

Igwa still walked to many, but didn't look terrible he was in and out of jams all night but that is a marked improvement to what he was earlier in the year.

Heard an interesting stat last night on the Yes broadcast. Since Joba came up, Farnsworth has made 14 appearances, 12 have been scoreless. Amazing what happens when you don't pitch the guy every single night.

Lastly, the Yanks should clinch tonight with Wang going. I'd like to see him skip the last start and be ready for October. Same with Clemens. don't care if you doesn't pitch again this month as long as he's available next week.

And truly last (right where they belong)the Mets will not make the playoffs after leading the division since sometime last year. That is pathetic. Willie might be forced to come back as Mattingly's bench coach next year.
