Yahoo Game Notes: Often Hilarious

Postby KolbSaves » Wed Apr 06, 2005 11:51 pm

Post your favorite Yahoo game notes in here. I don't know if this one is true, it doesn't seem likely but

LOS ANGELES PITCHER ERIC GAGNE WAS EJECTED BY HOME PLATE UMPIRE BILL HOHN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIFTH INNING FOR ARGUING BALLS AND STRIKES.

from tonight's game


I also like the ones like "BJ RYAN HAS 2 STRIKEOUTS THROUGH 1 INNING" at random intervals, and ones about the umps are good too, or "GAME DELAYED DUE TO CEREMONIES" is classic.

Not great, but...

THE HOME RUNS BY CHICAGO'S PAUL KONERKO AND JERMAINE DYE IN THE NINTH INNING WERE HIT BACK-TO-BACK.

Damn, what'd he do? He's not even on the roster, let alone pitching!


The game notes from today's Tigers-Royals game are good too:

Game Notes
DETROIT'S MAGGLIO ORDONEZ LEFT THE GAME AFTER FOUR INNINGS DUE TO DIZZINESS.
NEW YORK'S DEREK JETER LEFT THE GAME AFTER EIGHT INNINGS. HE WAS HIT BY A MIKE TIMLIN PITCH IN THE BOTTOM OF THE EIGHTH INNING.

Probably not. There are some really weird ones though, when I find one this season I'll post it here and you'll fall back in love with me and bake me cookies though, LBJ.

SEATTLE'S BOBBY MADRITSCH LEFT THE GAME IN THE FIFTH INNING DUE TO A STRAINED LEFT SHOULDER.

MINNESOTA'S JUSTIN MORNEAU LEFT THE GAME IN THE EIGHTH INNING AFTER HE WAS HIT IN THE HEAD BY A RON VILLONE PITCH.

Not funny! I lost 2 players in 1 game. :-[
