Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did, looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid. I’m still standing after all this time. Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind. -Elton John
Guess whos back, back again. Izzy’s back, tell a friend. That’s right sports fans, Jason Isringhausen is back. Back with a vengeance. Like my main Jack Kennedy always says, “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” Jason Isringhausen is back from whence he came. Back on the hill. Back on the hill when the game is on the line. Last night Jason Isringhausen was back on the hill when the game was on the line and recorded the 294th save of his major-league career. Hooray Jason Isringhausen! For those of you keeping score at home, that was Izzy’s first save since August 1, 2008. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s a span of two years and 352 days. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s the longest span between saves for a player who already had at least 250 saves to his credit. The previous most: two years, 273 days, by Troy Percival (2005-08). Pretty neat huh?
