Many of us know the Jack Buck call of Kirk Gibson's World Series home run in 1988.  We can hear Jack saying, "I don't believe what I just saw!" as Gibson limps around the bases.  Just like with Ozzie Smith's "Go Crazy" home run, though, there's a Vin Scully version of that moment.  The key [...]

Something Special…

Ever have a moment, when you're watching a team play, when you have the following thought: "We might have something special here."? I'm afriad to say this, of course, because I might jinx it, but I had that thought this weekend, after three straight extra inning wins in our sweep over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Three [...]

That probably was the most nail-biting, dramatic early-May sweep of a division rival we've ever seen.  Let's get right to it. Friday (2-1 win in 10) Hero: Lance Lynn.  It used to be that Lynn was the guy that would win no matter how he pitched because he got plenty of run support.  Then he [...]

Now, granted, the lineup maneuvering came against a struggling, underpowered squad in the Phillies, so it's tough to know how much weight to give the [...]
