Werthwhile catch, Utmost hit lead Phillies over Mets in 11 innings
If you didn't hear, awesome comeback win for the Fightin's last night. My favorite part was the look on David Wright's face when he saw Jayson Werth catch that ball. Looked like he was about to cry.

 

New York Mets' Mike Pelfrey has heated exchange with Philadelphia Phillies' Chase Utley - NJ.com

"He's a guy that I look at who always takes his time in the box," Pelfrey said. "I don't know if he's thinking or what in between pitches, but I was ready to go, and he wasn't. ... And I was mad." It was a rare angry outburst from the mild-mannered Pelfrey, and one the Mets were happy to see.

I love how the Mets place such an emphasis on appearances and attitude and words and not, you know, winning baseball games.

The Fightins " More Raul Ibañez Steroid Nonsense!
Great post by meech.  I agree with him for the most part, but I reserve a little more "blame" for Gonzo and Rosenthal for exploiting an issue that never would have been distributed very widely and using it as an opportunity to take potshots at bloggers. If the "Steroid Era" (ugh) has taught us anything, it's that basing rumors and feeding off innuendo based on a player's performance, particularly after 50 goddamned games, is ludicrous.  If you want to be taken seriously as a blogger/journalist, you need to be prepared to be called on accusations like that, even if they're just "hinted at" in the headline.

 

Johan Santana's 'protest' to be taken out OK with Jerry Manuel
