Babies = Shutouts

I didn't watch the game, but I'm glad we won. I watched the highlights on ESPN. It seemed like Adam Everett and Glen Perkins did their best to make up for past transgressions.

I applaud that...but let's give credit where credit is due:
Thank you, Alisha Perkins, for the win tonight. You clearly took the "Babies=Shutouts" rule of last season to heart. Labor is not easy, or so I hear, and you had to do all the heavy lifting while Glen just had to show up. You totally took one for the team, and we really appreciate it. We're in first place again, thanks to you! They should give you the game ball. Those Girls salute you and all your hard work this past 9 months.
So, overall a great game. I'm sort of sad I missed watching it, but I just wasn't that interested in seeing Sidney Ponson again, much less the rest of the Yankees line-up. I'm certainly not sad I missed seeing whatever is going on in this picture:

I don't even want to know.

In other news, between Silva's meltdown in Seattle, and Livan's 9-run debacle in Colorado, I hope everyone is cherishing that lovely feeling you get whenever you dodge a proverbial bullet. I know I am.

It's sooo obvious. Ponson is trying to be a dog. He thought maybe if he tried to be a cute puppy they would give him the Win. It didn't work cuz Perkins totally deserved it.
