I'm thinking "thread" sounds too fine..too smooth to be associated with such a horrible broadcast. Suggest a name change for SNB thread to "frayed rope", or something.

Wait, Joe... it wasn't a ground ball to Glaus, but it was a ground ball? That is some serious insight...

Soriano and his horse teeth need to be put down. In the batting order. --Eric

Did you all see Fox predict the Fontenot home run in the fourth yesterday? We can start the Fox conspiracy theories now! Where were they when I needed them for the derby.

Great story about the Japanese manager, Joe. I guess someone read the New York Times to you today.

When I die...please have Joe Morgan butcher my name. I can rest in peace.

2008-05-04T22:30:00.000-04:00

I'm sure Curt Schilling is thrilled by that latest Baseball Tonight commercial. But I might have to read his blog or catch him on his paid appearances on Dennis & Callaghan.

Oh and there's Neil Everett with WWE RAW voice mode once again. HOWZ IT! What a dork. He tries to out Van Pelt SVP himself which is nearing impossible to do.

Alright, Miller. We are very impressed that you can pronounce Fukudome's first name....over and over and over.

2008-05-04T22:19:00.000-04:00

After they throw to Gammons for analysis, why do they have to let Joe throw in his two cents? It's like David Brent trying to help the customer care consultant....you end up with Freelove Freeway.

2008-05-04T22:09:00.000-04:00

you seriously bitch in the 1st paragraph about these two teams being on Fox yesterday and ESPN tonight??? Dear god, when the Sawk and the Spankees play its a special ESPN Friday game, Fox on Saturday to 100 percent of the country and ESPN again Sunday...and no one complains...This rivaly (STL vs CHC) is just as big in the Midwest as the other one is out east..its just that the Cubs have blown for

2008-05-04T22:02:00.000-04:00

Im sure you saw it...the asshats in the truck are joining in the stupidity putting up last week's teams (DET, LAA) coming back from commercial.

I loved Jason Marquis in "Gremlins." You could totally tell he had a crush on Phoebe Cates.

I've been meaning to ask, but yea or nay on this constant stat update on the top of the score bar?

2008-05-04T21:51:00.000-04:00

Gwynn had over 5400 plate appearances in the 3rd slot and 500 batting lead-off. I guess the 3 hole wasn't too disagreeable.

2008-05-04T21:49:00.000-04:00

Nobody challenged Lou Pinella when he told Joe'n'Jon that Bobby Bonds had a 40-40 season with the Yankees.

2008-05-04T21:45:00.000-04:00

yep...and he also said at the start of the game that the 1 2 and 3 hitter job is to get on base so that....long pause......so that you can score runs

2008-05-04T21:43:00.000-04:00

And that, my friends, is why Yadier Molina is the best throwing catcher in basball.

2008-05-04T21:37:00.000-04:00

Did he just say that with a man on second, a lead-off hitter isn't trying to get on base?

2008-05-04T21:34:00.000-04:00

@g kennedy: I think he was trying to say that Zambrano stays in longer because he's a better starter....but then they put up Owings' really good stats from this season, so Joe didn't make sense.

ohhh joe u did it again!!! he just basically called micah oswings a relief pitcher..he was talking about how great a hitting pitcher carlos zambrano is and how he's better then micah oswings because zambrano is a starter and has more opportunities then oswings. joe their both starters!!! wake up
