At 4 hours, 45 minutes, the nightcap was the longest nine-inning game in major league history, and it came on top of a relatively speedy 3:55 afternoon contest.

Girardi is a top notch manager. His record and management of their pitching staff has been top flight.

I just heard on cable sports talk show that Girardi will be let go before the end of the day. Marlin's ownership dismantle another winner. If this is the case (seems to be), Dusty Baker will be canned in Chicago, thus making room for Girardi there.

You heard it here

Yeah, and give the Brewers some credit for that--Milwaukee is a joke on the road, possibly the worst road team in baseball.

More info on Girardi and the Marlins
"Joe Girardi has guided the Marlins into suprising Wild Card contention even though the team has the lowest payroll in Major League Baseball at approximately $14 million for 2006. Even with the success Joe Girardi has seen in his first year as manager of the Marlins he was nearly fired in early August when he got into a vocal (and visible) argument with Marlin owner, Jeffrey Loria. Although the Marlins have said the argument is over with, speculation remains that Loria and Girardi dislike one another. This as lead to wide speculation Girardi will be allowed to interview for the Chicago Cub manager vacancy after the 2006 season, following the likely departure of current Cub manager, Dusty Baker."

not that it justifies anything, but Loria's a world-class a-hole

The Brewers are now on a seven game skid, vanquishing all hope of a late season run for the NL wild card.

Your team ever get so bad, you start HOPING they'll keep the losing streak alive? That's where I am at now. I want to watch the fire blow out of control.

all over but the crying
It could be worse. You could be a Red Sox fan. How about all the regulars of your team being on the DL or just palin imploding? Oh yes, it's September.

On a slightly different note. Does anyone now think Catcher Jason Varitek WASN'T the heart and soul of this team?
