Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I suppose a chart of curveballs hit with an even count, runner on second in tie ball games and less than two out, with the moon in scorpio, would have been more appropriate.

we don't wish to overdose on the wasabi pnuts, but it's scoreless after three.point.five, the davids still looking for their first base runner. in fact, they ain't hit the ball hard yet.  but both pitchers are ganz gut.

and the Jints score two with two outs. clutch dink hitting. first ribbie from Cody Ross, whose heroics so far defy screenwriting.  when he broke up Doc halladay's no-hitter with a dinger, we discovered his name backwards is Ssory doc. (close, get's the cigar.)

PPS.  you read this diary for the writing, not for live blogging the game.

the modern political analysis of the game:

2 outs no one on base, pitcher falls behind 3-0.  the fox announcers are talking about teh yankees game, upcoming on fox in two hours. Victorino draws a walk, and they're still talking bout the yanks.  he actually gets a jump on the pitcher and stops, heavy strategy going on here, and they're still talking about the ynaks.

Victorino then steals the base, and fox is still talking about fox.

fuck fox, me back in the game.

I've noticed that. They really suck. I miss Kyper and Krukow. They do a great game.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
