Guess someone tried, huh B-P? (I looked - it was Droobs...) I've been attempting to log in to MLB Gameday for the last 45 minutes; was on hold with tech support for over half an hour and got nowhere. Would like to kill the person who tweaked their website cuz now it's not working...which it did all season up till now.

Guess I'll get to hear the game when the sun sets over Long Island and I can pull WTAM in over the airwaves the old-fashioned way.

BTW, does anyone know how to log-out of Gameday or the MLB site? That's what phone guy suggested. I thought the log-in link was in the top-right corner but all that is there is to log in to the forums. The phone guy said it was a "site issue" so I guess I have to wait until Tech undoes what it needs to do to unscrew-up what they screwed up earlier....

That was two outs that could have been averted if our guys had been hustling. Thome and Hannahan should know better.

Shut-down or unplug your computer...(that'll be the first thing I would do, idk if that'll be the best thing to do for you) might be easier to head to a pub that has the MLB package. Since you're surrounded by Massholes, there must be a pub nearby :cheers:

That probably should have been my first thought...I'm married to an IT guy! I tried to get in touch with him to find out how to clear cookies but he must be in the bowels of his office building cuz his phone is going to VM. Thanks!

I'll wait until between innings. Don't want to miss anything good (or bad????)!

Not to take anything away from what Huff and Gomez have done, but that is one butt ugly offense Oakland puts up there. If both Jimenez and Carmona can't pitch well the same time through the rotation, that would be depressing.

Their defense is even uglier. I didn't think it possible to see a worse SS than the Twins Nikiosha.

I was wrong.

"...and Carew comes over to Kuiper and says, “You little $&#$@$ …”

“What did I do?” Kuiper said.

And Carew said that he was playing an exhibition game in Japan. He stepped in against, yep, Jim Bibby. And suddenly he felt the jolt of a fastball pounding his side … this in an EXHIBITION GAME IN JAPAN.

And he said Jim Bibby flexed and said: “That was for Duane Kuiper.”

Ha ha!

HOnest to God, is there anything more excruciating or boring than Yankees/Red Sox baseball?? It should be banned from the planet. 2 and a half hours later we're meandering through the bottom of the 5th inning. And it's not like it's 15-4.

Only 206 pitches through 5 innings. That's probably good for them.
