If you didn't know, all the italics are Pearl Jam song titles.
MetsGrrl beat me to it. She was at the Pearl Jam show last night too, and Mr. Eddie Vedder gave us this little quote, right before playing "Rats":
Oh, I was out at Shea Stadium the other night and they have big rats there.

Brian Runge, the ump that bumped Jerry Manuel, has since apologized to the manager.
From Manuel, on the apology:
Yes, he did (apologize). He felt very bad," Manuel said. "He had spoken to his father (former big-league ump Paul Runge), who actually is a good friend of mine. He felt very bad about the whole incident and I accepted it."See? The world isn't totally evil.

Ryan Church will play for the Brooklyn Cyclones tomorrow night. He may DH, he may play the outfield, it all depends on how he feels when he wakes up tomorrow morning.
The way I feel waking up this morning, I don't even know if I'm suited to walk. Maybe Church should gauge it on how he feels around 10 a.m., just to let some grogginess wear off.
