    Spell Frenchy's name right, dammit! F-R-A-N-C-O-E-U-R.

    We don't need to spell no freaking foreign name right. If he wanted his name spelled right, he'd change it to Smith or something American.

    We barely did. Figured few would, and I haven't seen it changed on the wire yet.

    And from a style stand point, I hate "pitched three-hit ball over seven innings."
    Why not just say "Hudson gave up three hits in seven innings."

    because "three-hit ball" sounds like something they say on ESPN

    Agreed. I change it every time.

    That's what he gets for raping the Mets. Watch out, Larry; you and Shea are next.

    Jones' lifetime stats at Shea: .302, 17 HR (85 H in 281 AB). Lifetime vs. the Mets: .332, 36 HR, 110 RBI (194 H in 584 AB).

    Thanks for checking in, Mike. ;D

    Dynamite. I'd name my kid Chipper, but then I'd have to beat him. And I'm not cool with that.

    Your kid, Larry Wayne, thanks you. ;D

    Piazza was just trying to push his "I'm not gay" agenda. Methinks he doth protest too much.
