With Jerry Recco not feeling up to par this morning, the always prepared Chris Lopresti was forced into action, filling in admirably for the legendary update maven.
C-Lo, as he is known around these parts, began things by updating a Yankees 9-6 loss, during which their bullpen let them down once again.

The lowly Mets lost to the lowly Rockies 3-1 and Boomer believes it might be time for Jordany ‘I Am The Man Right Now’ Valdespin to do some self-evaluating.
In other baseball news, Roger Clemens (pictured attempting to hold back tears) is back, as the 50-year-old signs a contract to pitch for the Sugar Lane Skeeters, an independent team in Texas. Needless to say, that news prompted Craig to morph into Suzyn Waldman and from there laughter ensued.
