Remember that one time….when we crushed Brandon Webb…um…uh…that was awesome!
It’s hard to decide who was awesomest, however. Was it the insanely awesome Justin Duchscherer, who threw eight innings of one run ball? <cough, how ‘bout a complete game, skip? cough> Was it the magically awesome Mark Ellis, with his two home runs? Or could it have been Carlos Gonzalez, with his superbly awesome catch in the 8th? The catch prompted Bob Geren to say:
"I'd love to see it over again," Geren said. "I look forward to seeing that. That will definitely be on TV. I can't imagine 10 better plays there on 'Baseball Tonight' than that. If there are a better 10 plays, I really want to see the other 10."
SuSlu reports that the D-Backs might be eyeing our Unicorn for a possible future vacancy at 2nd base. Says Ellis:
"Honestly, it's way too early to think about it," Ellis said of his future. "Orlando is an unbelievable second baseman and I don't know what their plans are, and I have no idea what's going to happen with the A's. But obviously, I live here (Phoenix) and there are a lot of attractive things about it."
Says batgirl: Ellis is ours and you can't have him.
As it turns out, Patrol Craft’s catch was a #1 web gem, and it was #3 on ESPN’s top plays. It would have been #1 except for the fact that (and I’m probably breaking news to many of you here, because there has been almost no broadcast time used to cover it,) The Boston Celtics won the NBA Championship!
I’m very torn about this because I don’t like the Lakers, yet I really don’t like the fans of New England having one more reason to get their knickers in a twist about how great they are.
Today is International Panic Day , which, if you think about it, should really be an Athletics Nation national holiday. Feel free to take the day off work, host your own home tailgate in advance of tonight’s game, and scream from the rafters "WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
