Michael Phelps finished these Beijing Olympics the way he started, with Gold in World Record time. Phelps is now the single most decorated American in 1 Olympic year, besting Mark Spitz's 1972 Munich performance of 7. Phelps won his 8th, swimming the Butterfly 3rd leg to help the USA get the Gold with a time of 3.29.34.

Dana Torres get her last medal of these Olympics, winning silver in the 4x100 Relay.
Roy Halladay pitched a complete game 4 -1 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Halladay was spectacular at times, spoiling the Red Sox debut FOD...Friend Of Dentist...Paul Byrd. The Sox missed a golden opportunity to gain a game on the Tampa Bay Rays.
There is another blogger that lends credence to the V-tek conspiracy, and offers reasons why (thanks to WEEI's internet stream for that)
The Tampa Rays were shut out by the Texas Rangers...WHAT?!? I say, I say, I say.......The Texas Rangers shut out AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays 3 - 0.
The ho-hum New York Yankees squeaked out a win against the Royals 3 - 2. Maybe they can consider it a moral victory...

John Danks helps the Chicago White Sox keep pace with the Twins, beating the Oakland A's 2 - 1.
Pedro Martinez pitched 7 solid innings, helping the Mets to a 7 - 4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets have won 4 in a row and 7 of their last 9. They hold a 2 game lead over the Phillies for 1st place in the NL East.
Kevin Gregg saves game for the Marlins, beating the Chicago Cubs 2 - 1. The Marlins are 3 1/2 back of the Mets.
The Phillies offense continues to make any and all pitching staffs they face look like unhittable, and Kyle Kendrick's struggles continued in last night's 8-3 loss to the Padres.
Oh no is it time to push the PANIC BUTTON?!?
