Yahoo is funny; they...

Mess up so many things. You know all the times when Stattracker gets messed up or the score is wrong or something. Yeah well apparently they don't spend too much time looking over what they write either. This is the game note for the Tex vs. Detriot game.

Game Notes

TEXAS PITCHING COACH OREL HERSHISER WAS EJECTED FROM THE GAME BY HOME PLATE MATT HOLLOWELL IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND INNING FOR ARGUING BALLS AND STIRKES.

Just thought it was amusing.

there is a difference between spilling mistakes and meritorical ones... such as the 'wilson playing SS for the yankees' one at rotoworld.

Well that's not too bad. It's commonly called "arguing balls and strikes". It's wrong, but they didn't come up with the term. What I found funny was this, form tonight's Angels game:

"ANAHEIM FIRST BASEMAN DARIN ERSTAD LEFT THE GAME AFTER THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD INNING WITH AN APPARENT RIGHT HAMSTRING."

Damn, he apparently has a right hamstring. Who knew.

Yeah I noticed that one too. I wasn't saying that it was funny they used the term "arguing balls and strikes." Strikes was spelled wrong.
