Angels @ Mariner, Lackey vs. Meche

No liveblogging today, just a few thoughts from time to time.

22.08: Garret Anderson is out of the lineup again. Let's hope Bengie can make the Mariners pay if they walk Vladdi intentionally four times today. Oh, and Cabrera is still hitting 2nd. :(

22.14: Finley is just an awful centerfielder. How could this be a double, even for Ichiro???

22.27: Lackey with some serious trouble early. Now the offense has to pick him up. 3-0 Mariners

22.52: Minnesota leads 1-0 in Oakland. Only 6 innings to go.

23.04: Casey Kotchman did it again! Could it be he has hit more dingers than singles? 3-1 Mariners

23.10: Second time Finley came to the plate as the tying run. First time line out, second time double play.

23.32: The A's tie the game in Oakland. Shortly after, Vladdi hits a three-run-bomb. 5-3 Angels

23.42: Apparrently I missed a homerun, because it's 6-3 already.

23.44: Bengie hit one out. And Finley ends an inning for the third time tonight.

23.45: Ichiro steals 2nd after an infield single and comes home. 6-4 Angels

23.56: The Twins have a man in scoring position with no outs in the 9th.

23.57: 2-1 Twins

00.09: Joe Nathan is my hero! Twins beat the A's 2-1

00.19: The announcer just said that Finley was in a "looong slump". He's right. It started in April.

00.32: Ichiro! singles in a run. That's it for Lackey. Pine Tar Time! 6-5 Angels

00.44: Ichiro!! goes to third on a steal and a wild pitch.

00.45: They CAN NOT stop it! Damn it! Donnelly can't throw the ball to Erstad from 10 feet away. Ichiro!!! scores. Game tied at 6-6

00.57: I really don't agree with the decision to let Figgins bunt over Kennedy. He is so hot right now and the two guys behind him are not. Also, Vlad will have to lead of the 9th. No good idea.

01.00: I bow to Erstad, he's got it done. I'm not worthy! 7-6 Angels

01.09: Do you remember how it felt to be not nervous in the 7th, 8th or 9th inning with a lead? Shields comes in and walks Sexson.

01.11: Double. 3rd and 2nd.

01.13: Figgins with a great catch, but a bad throw. Bengie managed to tag out Sexson though. At least that's what the ump said. Bless him!

01.14: God old Scott Spiezio comes to the plate. A flyout lowers his average from .044 to .043.

01.26: Francisco's pitch hits ... the umpire.

01.29: K on 9 pitches.

01.30: Ichiro? flies out.

01.33: K on 3 pitches. Angels win 7-6 and are alone in first place again.

So I guess I was liveblogging after all.

Man, spam central in this thread.

Spam central is right. :(
Do other bloggers have this problem, too? Or is this a sideeffect of "liveblogging"?

I get one or two occasionally, but I don't know why you got so many in one thread. It could be the constant updates takes you to the head of the "most recently updated" queue, and that could be causing it. I haven't had that problem when I've live blogged.
