What A Day That Was: Diamondbacks 2, Dodgers 1

Well, I'm dressed up so nice
An' I'm doin' my best
An' I'm startin' over..
I'm startin' over in another place

Lemme tell you a story
Big chief with a golden crown
He's got rings on his fingers
And then he walks up, up to the throne

He's makin' shapes with his hands
An' don't you dare sit back
Now don't you dare sit down
And don't you dare speak up!

And on the first day, we had
everything we could stand
Ooh who could've asked for more?
And on the second day, there was nothing else left to do
Ooh what a day that was.

There are 50,000 beggars
Roaming in the streets
They have lost all their possessions
They have nothing left to eat

Down come a bolt of lightning
Start an electrical storm
Starts a chain reaction
Go pull a fire alarm

I'm dreaming of a city
It was my own invention
I put the wheels in motion
A time for big decisions

And on the first day, we had
everything we could stand
Ooh and then we let it fall
And on the second day, there
was nothing else at all
Ooh what a day that was.

Oh a day that was
Ooh that's the way it goes
There's a million ways- to get things done
There's a million ways- to make things work out.

Well I'm going right through
And the light came down
Well they're roundin' 'em up
from all over town

They're movin' forward and backwards
They're movin' backwards and front
And they're enjoying themselves
Moving in ev'ry direction

And if you feel like you're in a whirlpool
You feel like going home
You feel like talking to someone
Who know the difference between right and wrong

And on the first day, we had
everything we could stand
Ooh and then we let it fall
And on the second day, there was
nothing else left at all
Ooh what a day that was.
(We're go(in') boom boom boom
That's the way we live
And in a great big room and
That's the way we live.)

Or from today's DT thread:
990.   Alex41592
Outside and low, but at least he's consistently AWFUL.

Manny bats second in the ninth.

996.   scareduck
990 - There's a part of me that will be highly amused if Manny hits into a double play with nobody out.

1048. Eric Stephen
Curse you, Rob McMillin!

1051. Andrew Shimmin
Scareduck is a witch! Burn him!

1054. scareduck
996 - I am now highly amused.

I should also mention that Ken Griffey went 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a walk in his first game to help the Chisox beat Kansas City 4-2. Pittsburgh beat the Cubs 3-0 thanks partly to an Andy LaRoche single that was eventually cashed in for a run by Jack Wilson. And of course Mark Teixeira got a crucial walk in today's Angels game that proved the decisive run on Torii Hunter's RBI single.

Not that I'm making any judgments on the value of those trades based on a set of small sample sizes.

Manny wearing #99 was about as emblematic as could be, what with the obvious connotation that he's a short-timer.

Otherwise: the Dodgers played almost exactly the same game as yesterday, unable to hold a 1-0 lead that the Snakes turned into a loss in the very next frame. It could hardly be funnier... except for the part where Clayton Kershaw pitched well enough to get the win, but lost it thanks to Chan Ho Park.

That song is one of my favorite parts of the movie!
 
And on no other album, so far as I know. It's a real pity, because like you, it was one of my favorites and while I like the live version, I'm just not big on them in general.
