The New Yorker’s own, Christopher Weyant, released a daily cartoon a couple of days ago (the day after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings), and I thought I would share it with you guys. I found the cartoon to be very charming, showing that when something like this happens, we put our petty differences and fan allegiances aside. The tragic events that occured in Boston transcend sports, and it was just really cool to see the outpouring of love from New York. #BostonStrong

Update: 10:20AM ET: The video has been removed from Youtube, but the guys over at Deadspin still have the footage.
Update: 1:37AM ET (9/17): (There’s a video. Click here) NSFW! Best video comment so far: “Cc got a white ass..”
Ummmm…I wonder how CC feels about all of this.

Boomer and Carton break down and analyze John Sterling’s terrible call during Casey McGehee’s 2nd at-bat during last night’s game. Johnny clearly wasn’t paying attention and listening to Suzyn try to cover for him makes you want to cringe.
According to John, these four things all occurred during one swing of the bat:
1) Cuts and Misses.
2) Cuts and hits a fly ball down the left field line and the ball is foul.
3) The throw comes in and McGehee is standing on 2nd base.
4) The ball must have kicked into the stands for a “grounds rules double.”

Here’s a great clip from the 1928 film, “Speedy,” featuring George Herman Ruth. I’d like to call myself a movie buff, but I’m ashamed to say I never heard of this film before.
IMDB’s plot summary for the film:
“Speedy” loses his job as a soda-jerk, then spends the day with his girl at Coney Island. He then becomes a cab driver and delivers Babe Ruth to Yankee Stadium, where he stays to see the game. When the railroad tries to run the last horse-drawn trolley (operated by his girl’s grandfather) out of business, “Speedy” organizes the neighborhood oldtimers to thwart their scheme.
If you pay close attention, you can see Lou Gehrig walking as Ruth get sout of the cab.
