Earlier I watched game six of the '04 ALCS, and was amazed about how every out was so important, and looked at all the wasted potentials, and the things that could have changed the game if a ball moved just an inch or two differently, and I realized I hadn't seen a game with that much intensity, where every person who came on plate was a potential tying/winning run, where every run was a precious commodity to be guarded at every turn. I wondered when the next time I was going to see such a tight, scary, back-and-forth game.

It turned out the answer was roughly five hours.

every time these two teams go into a series, i just sit back and wonder, "what the fuck could possibly happen next?"

what actually ends up happening is usually not something i'd ever have guessed.

The Matsui injury was bad, but have you seen the Aaron Rowand catch-and-smash on the SP highlights? He ended up breaking his nose against the wall, so of COURSE the camera zooms in to show all the blood gushing out...

Runan

...That would be SC, not SP.

beth

yeah, i actually have seen that. it was a violent day in baseball yesterday.

While Matsui's injury was squirmy-painful to see, the worst one I remember is when Bryce Florie took a liner in the eye in 2000, shattering his cheekbone and orbital socket. Naturally, the cameras zoomed in on his face as it swelled and purpuled in a matter of seconds. It looked like some time-lapse video for medical school, or the baseball equivalent of the car crash movies in drivers' ed. Friends don't let friends pitch baseballs. Eeek.

that matsui injury ... gross. they kept showing it over and over again! although i will say it was the first time i've ever seen matsui show emotion ...

Watching a part of the human body bend in a direction it's not supposed to go is one of the most viscerally disturbing experiences I can think of.

I still have nightmares about Jason Kendall's ankle exploding on his way to first. When the Matsui injury happened, I changed the channel for five minutes, because I know they were going to replay it several times.

I have a high tolerance for pain, but I can't stomach watching things like that happen to people. Even Yankees.

I didn't realize how gross Matsui's injury was until they showed the replay 4,000 times his hand was just like hanging there ew and now imagine being at that game I was freaking out cause we were down then my dad goes Kate chill it's only the 4th inning and i was like wow not to mention my loss of voice after the game
