I blogged yesterday about my long term baseball prop bet and had a slight dig on Giambino for not homering since May.  Well I was wrong, his last long ball was June 23rd versus the Red Sox.  He made up for it today and belted his 5th home run of the season and his 414th career home run tying him for 43rd on the all time list with Darrell Evans and 348 HRs behind *Barry Bonds*

Savor it, could be one Giambino’s last trots around the bases.

I just got off the phone with 281 who gave me an idea of a new athlete that might be as cool as Jason Giambi to invite to my birthday party this fall. Brain Wilson (not the singer) but the closer for the San Francisco Giants.  If this dude played on the East Coast he’d have his own TV show by now.  Unfortunately his tucked away in Northern Cal where no has given a shit about baseball since Barry Bonds left the game so he doesn’t get the attention he deserves.  I need to contact him and was gonna through twitter, but apparently Brian cancelled his account when he got in trouble for allegedly being out past curfew, partying in Scottsdale AZ.

Quick bio:

1) Has an IQ of 188 – end of discussion

2) Is from South Boston, he’s Irish

3) Enjoys Cholula Hot Sauce

4) Big fan of the 80s

5) He’s a Ninja

The dude is that far out that he just might make an appearance,

Is this like the most boring/ drawn out milestone achievement ever?  When is my guy gonna start giving odds on this ARod thing to make me even give a shit (this is coming from a lifelong Yankee fan).  I am sure there have been plenty of other milestones for like 3,000 hits, 500 and 600 home runs that have taken longer to reach.  But this Alex Rodriguez thing is dumb.  If you think about it he admited to using steriods from 2001-2003.  If you eliminate his home runs from those 3 seasons, he’d be sitting on #443 . So ESPN is cutting into to show you ARods 444th career round tripper, which will keep him at 35th on the career list, just surpassing Dave Kingman and a few behind Jeff Bagwell (another guy on the sauce)…historic.

The Boss passed away this morning from a heart attack.  I hope he didn’t suffer.  I actually type this blog from New York where I’ve been for some pretty historic New York moments, Aaron Boone’s walk-off home run in 2003, David Cone’s perfect game and now the Boss’s death.

He always did his best to put the best team on the field to win a championship for the city of New York, so far you helped deliver  5 World Series titles in my lifetime.  My only criticism of him was when he made Don Mattingly cut his hair back in 1991 or be benched…

Thanks for the memories George, we’ll miss you.

I need to set a player alert for Jason Giambi to my BlackBerry, because on Sunday he hit his second dinger of the season in Kansas City, that’s two in the month of May.  He is now 44th on the Career Home Run Leaders list, just 3 behind Darrell Evans for 43rd position, but more importantly 351 Home Runs behind Barry Bonds.  It’s marathon not a sprint.

This just in, Joe Lima, 37 died of a massive heart attack last night at his Los Angeles home. Lima was a flamboyant pitcher known for wearing flip-flops around the dugout during off days, getting sued for giving a chick herpes in 2004, coining the phrase ‘Lima Time’ and for his excessive celebration after striking out an opposing batter.

R.I.P. Joe Lima and Lima Time, I am fairly certain you cost me money at least six times throughout your career.

Tough no decision last week for Roy in Colorado which led to an extra innings loss for the degenerates. He was pitching out of jams all game and gave up the lead in the 7th. One of those games I wish I had the first five innings. Today Roy is back at home where he is undefeated with 1.13 era. Halladay faces Zack Duke and the Pirates who he is 1-0 with a .60 era in 15 innings. Jimmy rollins is returning for the Phills and these stats and a healthy lineup are noticed by Vegas. -360 is the largest line I can recall this year. I’m going with a small play on the money line for some free money and a larger play on the run line -155 for a better payout.
