  1. Sigh…

  2. Frasor doesn’t always give up home runs, but when he does, he prefers grand slams.

  3. keys to success:
    hit a lot of grand slams (NYY- yes, TOR- no)
    optional: have a really good rotation (NYY-no, TOR- no)

  4. The only thing worse than losing is losing to the Yankees.

  5. I blame KJ tonight. (And blawrie13.)

  6. True story. I come home last night to the headline that said “Ibanez hits 8th inning grand slam to beat Jays.” Me: I wonder who gave it up? Frasor?

    Moral of the story: Jason Frasor shouldn’t pitch to left-handed power hitters with the bases loaded and the game on the line with no rest.

  7. I hate fuckin’ Billy Crystal
