Matt Soldano and I had a bet coming into today's rubber game in the Subway Series. Matt said that the Yankees would get no earned runs off Johan Santana. I disagreed. If Santana pitched gave up no runs, I would have to grow my whispy mustache out for the rest of the summer. But if he did, Matt would have to shave his chin-beard.
Today, Johan Santana did not just give up 1 run, he gave up 9 in only 3 innings. The bet was settled in the 2nd inning when "Fran the Man" Francisco Cervelli hit a bloop RBI single to right-center. That was all I needed. The rest was cake.
It's fitting that the player I support to no end supports me in my endeavor to eliminate Matt's facial hair.
So tune in to 'The Replacements' this Friday at 1pm EST on WCWP Sports to hear Matt shave his beard and listen to me bathe in victory.

By the way, Kay had the pancakes dry, no syrup. "Never syrup!" he yelled during a commercial break. "That would bastardize the pancakes." Really, he's an interesting guy, isn't he?
I don't know how anybody doesn't love Michael Kay.
