So how is it exactly that a baseball team can blow a 9-0 lead?
Marijuana muffins, you say? Dude, I've got one even better. Texas Rangers. Nuff said.
Well, actually, let's say a little more because last night at Yankee Stadium your Rangers made history. Texas led the Yankees 9-0 in the second inning and 10-1 in the third before an absolute implosion by their bullpen--stop me if you've heard this one before. New closer Akinori Otsuka (pronounced i-have-NO-clue) provided the asterisk, surrendering Jorge Posada's two-out, two-run homer in the ninth for a legendary come-from-ahead, 14-13 loss. The Rangers lost a game. More important, with that kind of bullpen buffoonery, they probably lost a step in the chase to land Hall-of-Fame free agent Roger Clemens. --Richie Whitt
