They've retired too many but #2? why not.

On another note, maybe baseball will follow the IOC and "drain the record swamp"?

Track and Field Officials Propose Erasing Half of World Records

European report calls for stricter antidoping measures, removing performances that failed to meet those rules from world record lists

Track and field officials have proposed reforms that would wipe more than half of Olympic-discipline world records from the books, a drastic step to clean up the image of a sport dogged by a long history of doping

Maybe get the Germans on board with/ the doping then more will be done .
I agree with you but MLB ( Bud Selieg ) did / does want to go real deep in testing .

Can't blame Joey Ball
Again ! It was an ugly baserunning game in windy Chicago by the Bombers but Gardner's 3run HR in the top of the 9th made it happen for the win

That was a great finish, with veterans stepping up. Gardy is on one of his hot streaks. Unfortunately he also usually gets into a cold streak or 2 or 3 during the season that drive you nuts

Was watching (well sneaking in a few at bats per inning) a couple of early innings, then listened to the 8 and 9 on the way home from work. "Gardner *plants* one... gardy goes yardy"
"theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yankeeees wiiiin"

Susan had one of those "I'll have what she's having moments" (when Harry met Sally) quote) in the post game. Poor Sweeney, it's his postgame report and he has to let Susan go on for about 15 minutes before getting a word in edgewise LOL.

The summer is shaping up for some fun games, currently going to my one game a year in August (originally July but had to resched).

It was a classic Sterling broadcast !

Mets had fought comeback , good for them . Pitching was not there for either team , kinda root for Tom Kolher ( personal reasons) to do well. TJ needs to lace his 1b leather up a bit .

Exactly ! Mrgrs. can mis-use players from HS to the bigs ..its no secret that Collins did last years Keith H. said it many times last year in the booth ( FYI I did talk to K.H. ) " he M.C . is an excellent player " .

And as far as Harvey & the rest of the staff , they are getting what they deserve by listing to the Soap Box talk from # 5 .

for a big market City Go look into the Mets payroll it's right where they want it to be , the last 10 years not top 10 & between 20 & 12 , keep the payroll / low man low , that's smart business

well, I got as far as the 10th after Chapman blew it. He didn't have his stuff from the first pitch for some reason, then couldn't keep the strike zone, even though he threw a couple of pitches the ump *could* have given him, which would've changed the game, but bottom line he didn't deserve the save.

YET, I was impressed with Clippard for the first time, and somehow they pulled it out in 18.

While I'm not ready to declare even the playoffs for this team, they look like they have a special core group of players.

I know that right now, there are a bunch of Yankee fans looking deep into October, but I'm just looking for a division meaningful game at the end of August

fell asleep in the 12th , woke up in the 14th , watched it on MLB channel this am ,
J. West ( the cowboy ) behind the plate last night very consistent w/ inconsistency but he is senior & batters have to swing if its hittable.

Clippard was really on & so was the rest of the middle arms , Good show !

I can't look past July 4th w/ any team = injuries will come to all clubs .

43 degrees in the Lower Hudson Valley NY this am , no chance of going to wet the line , Late afternoon maybe .
