Can you imagine the waves of hate that would have poured on Lidge from the “fans” back in Houston if Lidge had actually lost this game, if Qualls had given up the tying go ahead run there? Man the dude was getting booed loudern Uncle Albert when he gave up those 5 runs when the team was already DOWN 5 runs in the 8th.That sure as replica Ulysse Nardin 223-88.383 Men's watch heck won’t build no confidence.Oh yeah before I forget Andy Pettitte got Clemensed tonight.He gave up 2 runs in 6 innings and Mariano the invincible coughed up a 3 run lead and lost the ballgame.Dude has blown more saves than Lidge. Ain’t I a stinkah?
AND he hit it to straightaway center field.Yes, you read that right.Craig Biggio hit a baseball a good 400 to straightaway center field.Does anyone remember the last time Biggio hit a homer to center? I sure don't.It was Biggio's night.The day off did him a world of good.He draws a leadoff walk to start the game.He steals second his first SB this replica Ulysse Nardin 266-66-623 Men's watch year.He alertly takes third on the bad throw by Estrada, the catcher.He scores on Berkman's groundout to second.And most amazing, in the 8th inning, he moves to his right to grab a line shot up the middle and he actually throws the runner out from almost the outfield grass behind second base!
WTF?Fifth, Phil has STILL not figured out that you cannot bring Wheeler back for a second inning of work, no matter what the pitch count.Sixth, I wanna give props to Ryan Langerhans from Round Rock, Tx, who was picked out of HS by the Braves in the 3rd round 1998, for hitting a 396 HR off Dan Wheeler in the 12th.And this is NOT a guy replica Tissot T19.1.491.52 Men's watch who is a HR hitter, neither 1 HR every 12 or so games in the minors.Last, the “official” attendance was 31,762 for a game between top aces I would bet that no more than 25 26,000 walked thru the gates.Which means that we have the usual numbers of people going to see the games this game would have been sold out last year.
