I was rooting for the Rangers here ‘cause ex-Cub great Rich Harden started this game and had 6.2 of the innings before being pulled due to pitch count. But once I saw Mauer was up I knew the no-no was history. Throwing Joe Mauer an 0-2 meatball with a no-hitter on the line in the ninth like Neftali Feliz does here is about as stupid as Sly Stallone is awesome. Seriously, who would have thought The Expendables would be such a powerhouse?
Oh, and if you noticed that I had ‘Neftali Perez’ written in the above paragraph for a day or so, pat yourself on the back…you’re today’s winner! Just email my PayPal account a small $4,000 processing fee so I can release your winnings.
