From ESPN.com, a poetic, if somewhat misinformed, account of Jeff Suppan's homer last night_
For a fleeting mini-moment, it looked like a replay of Scott Spiezio's triple at Shea on Friday in which the right fielder, Shawn Green, swatted the baseball off the top of the fence and back into play. Except this time, Chavez crashed into the wall and swatted nothing but 100 percent, pure unadulterated oxygen.
Wow, no wonder sports performances are getting better every year. They're now pumping stadiums full of oxygen. (Just don't light a match).
