Barry Bonds hit home run #710, leaving him only four behind Babe Ruth. I caught the replay on NESN tonight, followed by this exchange between Tom Caron and Hazel Mae:

HM: Barry Bonds limping around the bases on his home run. What's up with that?

TC: There are some theories, Hazel, but I won't get into that right now.

Good one, TC.

After the Sox game ended I saw Brad Lidge blow another save against the Dodgers. Just one night after Nomah beat him with a grand slam in the top of the ninth, Lidge walked the bases loaded and then gave up a sac fly to Jeff Kent. Nomar flew to deep right to end the 9th, not quite duplicating last night's heroics.

I don't know what's up with Lidge. He has seven saves, but several of them have been of the shaky variety. Now he blows saves on two consecutive nights. You have to wonder if some of the events of last years playoffs are weighing on him (losing games 2 and 4 of the World Series, giving up the 9th inning three-run game winning homer to Pujols in game 5 of the NLCS). It'll be interesting to see how the rest of his season goes.
