Welcome home, A-Rod

First pitch, first at-bat back from having surgery, HOMERUN! You can't write it any better than that.

Side note: It appears as if Ian Kennedy has an aneurysm that will require surgery on Tuesday. Apparently the guy operating on him is the same surgeon who operated on David Cone when he had his aneurysm back in 1996. All the best to Kennedy with a speedy recovery. He was off to a decent start too in AAA.

Update: Scott Richmond is pitching tonight for Toronto against some dude on the A's named Outman. I will be keeping up with that game on gameday for sure!

Welcome back A-Rod!

A-Rod has done more this season than Ransom or Berroa already. 1 pitch thrown to A-Rod and he's already out homering David Ortiz. Maybe Tex will hit better as a result of A-Rod being behind him.

Tough break for Ian Kennedy. You never want to see any player getting hurt.

insilitI hope you caught Richmond on USStream, Christina...was the Jays game on. Richmond pitched really weell expect for the 2nd inning and actually pitched a complete game. I think he'll continue to be good this year. The thing is they still lost. There are no moral victories in the games when a team loses, so that was dissapointing to say the least....

Arod's return? One game so so far so good! He'll impact the team BUT the Yankee pitchers need to pitch and CC did just that. BUt in the end the bullpen is weak and people like Burnett,who I saw for 4 years with the Jays and is not that great of a pitcher when you really look at his ERA and his record even this year. And is Wang going bounce back? I say maybe not for one major reason. Wang's problem seems to be both psychological AND physical. I like Wang a lot BUT something seems wrong with his head big time.IN the end, their pitching has to be right for them to win and the SP on paper is great, but hasn't been great this year.

Christina, that Inslilti at the beginning was the code for posting! Somehow it got up front. I say: I hope you caught Richmond........

Bruno- when I tried loading it, nothing was on the screen. Does it work during every single game? Is it a live feed?

Christina, it seems that it's for certain games AND someone might have changed the damn password! I'll see what if someone posts another one, BTW I posted a reply to the Halladay/AJ post and I forgot to put my name on it(it's the first post)! Have fun in Toronto........
