I think Cole Hamels is getting a raw deal with that comment because it was taken out of context in which he said a lot more than "he just can't wait for the season to end".  Unfortunately for him, we live in the sound bite era. 

Mike,

You're lucky you had Miller/Morgan on the broadcast.  Sterling is an embarassment to most serious Yankee fans.  Waldman isn't much better, but at least she does her homework and knows a little more about the players.  Also, she can actually see the play on the field while Sterling is very questionable with his sight.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Listening to the words of Joe Morgan yesterday, I concur.  This is why he (Morgan) was being very cautious about how he answered the question.  He wanted to hear what was said in its proper context.

Anyone here made it to the parade today? /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif">  I work in one of the buildings right along B'way near City Hall, but ended up just working from home today instead.  Was gonna see about shooting some photos from street level -- tried it from my previous work floor last time (for the NY Giants), but those long tele shots just aren't that interesting.  Maybe next time I guess... <br /></span>

That looks like a nice collectible DVD set.  Too bad my kids aren't interested in baseball -- would make it easier to justify owning such (along w/ others like the Ken Burns series), if they were. <span rel='lightbox'><img class='bbc_img' alt=  Actually, I still would like to buy the Ken Burns series at some point -- presumably, there won't be a (much better) Blu-ray version of that(?).

I am sure that in the next months, there will be a release of the actual games. I have my Dodgers World Series from the 80's with Vin Skully. I would be very surprised if it did not get released.
