I had to turn off baseball tonight. I was yelling F Bombs while listening to games. Wherever I flipped to, there was something to tick me off.
The Red Sox saw the momentum of the Yankee series win die at home against the Cubs of all teams.
Friend of the podcast, Sean Doolittle, had a rare bad outing and surrendered the ultimate slam to lose the game for the A’s.
And the Giants didn’t even play but STILL lost ground as the Dodgers won a 1-0. LA’s magic number to clinch the west is 79.
The only good thing that happened is the Yankees lost. But even in THAT game, the Yankees tied the game in the 9th, so I dropped an F bomb then.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.

Tim Lincecum pitches tomorrow. The Giants haven’t won since his no hitter. Maybe he has another one in him.
