Thanks Putz

Don't put a Mariner out to do an Angels job. Figures that K-Rod had to come in and save the day after J.J. Putz lived up to his name, nearly blowing the Angels bid for home-field advantage in the World Series. How embarrassing must it be to be pulled from a save situation in the All-Star game.

Even Atlee Hammaker would have to chuckle at the way Putz folded following Brian Roberts error.

And speaking on that, with home-field advantage on the line, shouldn't all Orioles, Devil Rays, and Royals be removed from the game? Hey, at least the Yankees were able to contribute something to the Angels post-season cause. You know, other than being a doormat for the team in October.

A couple of notes here, was anybody else expecting better Ichiro quotes after the game? Kind of like his interpreter was on his best behavior. Disappointing.

Has Joe Buck surpassed Chris Berman in the annoyance factor in these games? Nothing worse than his intro, "I'm Joe Buck and I'm such a glory-hungry media whore, Tim McCarver will be along in a moment even though he's standing right next to me. Because right now is all about me (female dogs.)"

I think Joe Buck would have to simultaneously show me his ass while bitching about himself showing his ass (on a nightly basis) before he was more annoying than Berman.

Is Jay Buhner still playing for the Ms? I doubt there are very many players still on either team. The Angels will likely make a move and get Rivera back.

The M's have had a nice run, but they couldn't even catch the Angels. Now this team is rested and ready to go.

You mean the Mariners will fail to get to the World Series yet again? Probably a safe bet.

It's funny, the Mariners have fans? Who knew?
