Marco Scutaro has had discomfort in the back of his right shoulder for the last two weeks. "I don't know how it started. But I have hard time reaching back on throws."

Today is wmtc5 -- our annual backyard party -- so tonight's thread will be here.

AL East:
Mariners/Yankees, 1 PM
Rays/A's, 9 PM
August 21:

1936 - Red Sox pitcher Wes Ferrell, angry about a teammate's infield error, tosses his cap and glove on the ground and walks off the mound during a start against the Yankees. Ferrell had stormed off the mound in his previous start, as well, after the Senators got three cheap hits Ferrell felt were playable. According to Red Sox Century, Ferrell later says he thought manager Joe Cronin was waving him off the field and claims a mysterious "woman in red" can back up his story. Why can't today's players respect the game like all the old-timers did?

1986 - Spike Owen becomes the first major league player in 40 years to score six runs in a game as the Red Sox rout Cleveland 24-5. Boston scores 12 times in the top of the sixth.

1990 - Trailing 11-1 after seven innings, the Phillies score two runs in the 8th and nine runs in the 9th inning to beat the Dodgers 12-11.

" a mysterious "woman in red" can back up his story."

A succubus myth. Neat! I doubt he was aware of it. I wonder what the psychology is there... it's always a woman's fault when a man acts like a baby?

On the Fuck Yeah! hit, I was 'indisposed' I came back and knew what had happened as the sportnet was into ultimate fighting already. I just didn't know when, on the pitch after I left the room! POW! Game over.

Ha ha, I thought of you as soon as I saw Lowrie's reaction! Perhaps he was dedicating the homer to his injured teammate?
