It is July 10. On this date in baseball history, Phillies outfielder Sherry Magee knocked out home plate umpire Bill Finneran with one punch after being ejected for disputing a called third strike (1911), John F. Kennedy became the first president to throw the ceremonial first pitch at an All-Star Game (1962), and Giants left-hander Jonathan Sanchez threw a ho-hitter against the Padres (2009).

    I would like to give special mention to the Yankees fan who gave the 3,000 hit HR ball to Jeter without monetary compensation. That was a grand gesture and should be applauded. Few people would do such a thing. It really reflects well upon Yankees fans.
    On a different note, the Phillies offense is back to barely scoring runs against decent pitching. The only offense of the day coming from a Cliff Lee bomb. I had a bad feeling about Stutes yesterday. Although I don’t have the statistics in front of me, it sticks in my mind that he struggles in the tail end of back to back performances. Howard might have dropped that foul ball, but he isn’t the one who proceeded to hang sliders. I’m worried about the bullpen today….is Bastardo available? What about Perez? Might need Hamels to go 9.

      I’m worried about Perez, too. He’s not a starry eyed rookie; spent most of his career in the minors for a reason. Shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth and all that, but could he be a two inning wonder?
      And I’m tired of watching Howard hit home runs and doubles galore in one game, and then do nothing for the next five. This offense is so frustrating!

      Good Doctor,

      Yes. The offense was offensive again. Not taking anything away from Tommy Hanson, but they had baserunners yesterday and failed to come through in the clutch.

      Hopefully, they can do something again Lowe today and Hamels can pitch a gem. We shall see in a few hours.

      Yes, Tommy Hanson. “Decent” be thy name.

    Sanchez’s no-hitter was against the Padres, not the Pirates.

      And a late inning error by Sandoval cost him a perfect game.

    How do the Yankees do things? I’m trying to figure out which Cecil B. DeMille epic yesterday’s game most paralleled- “The Ten Commandments” with the parting of the Red Sea, or “The Greatest Show on Earth” with putting on a show after a train wreck (after last week’s crummy offense).
    Ah, no matter, we too will soon be playing the O’s of the world and Derek Sanderson Jeter will lead the way through the desert for the next 75 days and nights.
    After CC gets us through today there will be some R&R through the All-Replacement break while Moses Cashman tries to figure out who the hell to buy before the trade deadline. He’s going to need the Wisdom of the Ages, and probably access to Hal’s checkbook.

      Or you could be rooting for the devil.

        The Devil wishes he had 27 World Championships

    A ho-hitter? Sounds like Sanchez has some anger issues…

  5. bengunby - Jul 10, 2011 at 12:32 PM

    I disagree. I mean, the starters allowed, what, combined like three guys to such much as even get in scoring position during the game? Neither team had hardly any chances against the starters.
