    In honor of Oklahoma's second-best baseball player. The first being Warren Spahn.

    (Johnny Bench is No. 3.)

    Poop. Now no one will see me begging for a date to the Phils-Mets game in two weeks. :D

    Now, as to baseball (well, maybe not realy since it is the fucking Mets):

    Has any closer ever had a worst performance than Frankie Rodriguez tonight?
    Five batters faced, five runs...capped by walkoff grand slam. WTF?

    I'd say Kerry Wood's been not too far off from that this year. That guy kills me.

    The most runs Kerry Wood has given up in a game this year is 4 and he at least got two outs in that appearance.

    I'm talking about 5 batters faced, no outs, 5 runs, three walks, two hits, the second a walk-off grand slam. Come in with a 2-1 lead, lose 6-2 without getting a batter out!

    The worst performance in the history of closers.

    Don't worry, spnited, he'll be injured soon enough.

    Doesn't matter. The Mets have been dead for a couple of months now.
    It was just stunning to see somebody not named Aaron Heilman be that bad.

    Last week, Angels closer Brian Fuentes had two consecutive appearances -- against the mighty Tribe -- in which he faced four batters each night and retired none. 8 batters, 6 hits, 2 walks, 6 runs, all earned.
