What is it about Tek's posterior that causes things like this to happen? At the risk of raising the ire of a certain young lady in Austin, TX, why this fascination with the man's rear end?
Chip Carey and Joe Simpson, the Braves announcers today, were commenting that the end of Tek's swing appeared "strange". No kidding: McCann is already preparing for his future career as a proctologist before Tek's bat even meets the ball on this bases clearing triple. Can you imagine where it was on his follow through?
6-3 Red Sox win, and Kason Gabbard came up from Pawtucket and went 5 innings and struck out 7. 30-13 with the closest team to them the Baltimore Orioles at 10.5 games back.
Someone tell Slappy that the train is coming: it's bringing as the next 3 starters an ageless knuckleballer, a certified lunatic, and a 40 year old ace who once said he could think of nothing better than to make 50,000 Yankee fans all shut up at once.
Let the "When will George fire Joe Torre?" watch begin.
