Thanks to XM, I got to hear it. What a comeback!

Last two runs scored on an errants throw to first.

Yanks may be 8 games out by end of day. Gotta love it.

And Mets have a keeper with Oliver Perez.

Yeah, I watched it.  Was a nice comeback.  I look forward to the weekend series Braves vs. Sox.

Which Oliver Perez?  The one who gave up 8 runs last outing or the one today?  That's the thing with him...all the talent in the world but can't ever seem to get it together for a full season since his one solid year in 2004.  My moms husband is a big Mets fan, and we actually talked about Oliver today.  Great stuff, just seems to have problems between the shoulders.  Maybe this is his year though, but I wouldn't be calling him a keeper just yet.  Then he'll go out and walk 7 again....

Perez is 4-3 with a 3.00 ERA. Peterson has helped him. He's doing well. Consistency is getting
better. We'll see how he does with his first full year under Peterson.

Yes, Prefer any day is a good day when that happens!

I need to get MLB.com or Extra Innings. Radio call was good but I still like to see it.

Yeah he is off to a good start but conistency is the key.  We have seen Oliver show flashes of brilliance in the past over short spans.  No one doubts his talent.  His ERA is helped by the fact last outing 6 runs were "unearned" but fact of the matter is he is still gave up 8 runs.

As a Pirates fan I have to say Perez sucks.  Good luck with getting that guy on track.  Glad we ushered him out and let the youngsters take over.  He is good for nothing more than a migraine.  Enjoy the rollercoaster joe!

I'm enjoying the wins.

Enjoy Xavier Nady. .247 average?

And I liked Nady.

We'll see what a real pitching coach can do for Perez. So far so good. At the very least,
he'll hold the fort until Pedro is back and until a few more youngsters are ready.

Seems like Johnny is a wee bit too concerned with his old club...

http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070514/SPORTS/705140337

Seattle � With a lineup that has gone into hibernation, the Yankees are digging themselves a deeper hole on a daily basis.

If this trend continues, the Bombers may fall out of the American League East race by the time Roger Clemens arrives.

Then again, according to Johnny Damon, the Yankees' performance might not matter much if the Red Sox continue to be the hottest team in baseball.

"If the Red Sox keep playing the way they are," Damon said yesterday, "nobody is going to catch them."

Shocking words from Damon, who is typically one of the more optimistic voices in the Yankees' clubhouse. But after yesterday's events, who could blame him for feeling that way?

The Yankees wasted a terrific game from Andy Pettitte, falling 2-1 to the Mariners to drop the rubber game of the three-game set. Just a couple hours earlier, Damon and his teammates watched the out-of-town scoreboard in amazement as the Red Sox scored six runs in the ninth to defeat the Orioles. Bottom line, they lead the Yanks by eight games.

"I looked up and couldn't really believe it," Damon said. "It seemed like the Orioles had the game convincingly. I thought they might have made a mistake, that it should have still been 5-0."
