The Rangers are another mediocre team like the Mets.  We'll take 2 out of 3 from such teams about 1/3 of the time and lose 2/3 the rest.  We'll probably do a bit better for a little while as we climb back towards our eternal .456 winning percentage.

Nice win. We need to win at least 3 of 4 from the Braves.

Good job. Nieuwenhuis big hit. Granderson and Recket do well. Tejada gets on three times. Good game all around.

Can we keep in context that the only reason germen was in there was cause we were up 7-1? He isn't our closer, not our 8th inning guy, not our 7th inning guy, not even our main long relief option.. he is an arm for when we need innings or are getting blown out (in this case we were blowing out the other team).. every team needs this

@MyIdolSeaver Just think - IF the concert was in Colorado, they could sell pot at the concession stands.

True. It's more about Kirk being our LF starter. He has speed power and great defensive skills. Why isn't he playing more?

@John Plain God, I hope so.
Him AND Collins, both should be gone.

@MyIdolSeaver Can I drive to your home?
I have SlingBox and I have an extra unit.

I'm a native New Yorker, who lived 1/2 mile from Yankee Stadium (don't hold it against me), who had my job relocate me to Philly.
And the Philthies lost today. :-)
