Our magical steed certainly pissed excellence into the Kentucky night. I can only imagine that last night's performance was the on-earth equivalent of Mitch Hedberg having sex with partially cloaked angels. While our stud is completely indifferent to the feelings he engenders in his mates, the divine spirits chorus a euphoric rendition of Belinda Carlise's Heaven is a Place on Earth.
If you think that's ridiculous, know that I watched the game with my Dad last night and seriously contemplated asking him if he thought Cliff Lee's mother was a unicorn.
Let's take a look at some of the statisticals:
Cliff Lee is 5-0 in June with 0.21 ERA. He has produced more runs (2) than he has given up (1). According to ESPN, batters are hitting .152 against Lee. He is batting .250. He has the fifth lowest ERA in a calendar month for a starting pitcher, behind Orel Hershisher, Dwight Gooden, Nolan Ryan, and Fernando Valenzuela.
For realsies, you have trouble replicating this stuff in video games.
HOLY SHIT! MLB now lets us embed video! Watch it right here:

Ruben Amaro might be more interested in an arm than another bat. He lies.
“Everyone wants to talk about the offense, but to me it’s always about the pitching,” Amaro said. “Those are the things that win championships, so if we were able to do things in that area, great.”
Michael Stutes cut his hair. Either he or Antonio Bastaro will be the closer in Madson's absence.
Finally, did anyone else notice a dichotomy between the 2006 clip of Beckett's home run and the 2009 clip?
