Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

The Jays just hit into the most clusterfucky triple play of all time. Second and third, VladJr grounds out pitcher to first. Runner on third goes to home then changes his mind, runner on second is trapped between second and third. Throw to the catcher for a quick rundown between home and third—second out—and then runner on second tries for third and his tagged. Every infielder was involved in the triple play.
I think that would be the Yankees 2nd triple play of the season.
You're right. Plus a no-hitter. I'll trade that for no championship and call it a season.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

If they'd lost the series against Toronto, with Oakland up next, I'd think Boone would be scheduling tee times.

Something I found about Mudcat Grant's broadcasting career:
What made Grant famous—or infamous—was that he loved to read his mail on the air. Mudcat assassinated the names of Cleveland suburbs. Massillon was pronounced mas-silly-on; Fostoria was Fost-tor-ree-a.

Chandler recalled, "The moment I'll never forget is when Harry Jones said to Mudcat, 'Why don't you dig into the mailbag and see what we have?'

"Mudcat came up with a letter and said on the air, 'We have this letter here from Mas-silly-on. Harry, it from the two sisters, the Cunt sisters.'

"Harry said, 'Mud, I think that's the Kuntz sisters. The Kuntz sisters from Massillon.'

"Mudcat said, 'Well, maybe you be right. Well, anyway, these two Cunts be writing us, and they say...'

"Harry Jones just sat there, speechless, knowing Mudcat was talking about cunts on television. Mudcat didn't mean it. It was just his southern accent. But Harry was stunned. Finally, he just decided to go on with the game and pretend it never happened."

this is the kind of solemn respect with which we used to take in a ball game.

Another triple play.

And it ends/wins the game.

3 triple plays by one team in a season must be a record.

Yeah 3 is the record shared by a handful of teams. Sox did it twice and in 79 two teams managed this fear.

With the go-ahead run on-base—what a nutpunch for the A's.

Yeah Chapman couldn't throw a strike they could probably have patiently walked home the win

The announcers seem to be enjoying themselves.

The Angels have Jose Quintana and Jose Quijada, both lefties.
