Anyone think Ken Macha had seen "Major League" recently?
Apparently, dropping the bunt down was all Ramon Hernandez's idea and if so, it was brilliant. As Rick Sutcliffe said, no one in the area code expected a bunt. That was an absolute epic of a game and here I am just hours later, ready to go again. I can only imagine that people in Boston are having the same problem - exhausted and facing a day game.
I'll be speaking with Michael Lewis in just a few hours for BPR. Lewis obviously has an insider's take on both the A's and Sox, so it will be interesting to see what he has to say about that series, looking back on the "Year of Moneyball", and I've got to ask him about California politics.
No account predictions for today: A's take game 2 in another close game on pure adrenaline and a great pitching performance from BArry Zito. The Yanks tie things up with the Twins in another sloppy game.
Nice to see Fountains of Wayne in super-heavy rotation on MTV. Heck, it's nice to see MTV play videos occasionally.
