The Isotopes' star player Buck Mitchell's game is suffering and it's all because he's eaten up by seeing his pop singer wife Tabitha Vixx perform raunchy dance numbers. Seeing the Simpsons as the perfect couple he asks for Marge and Homer to give him and Tabitha marriage guidance advice. It nearly goes awry when Buck catches Tabitha giving Homer a neck rub but Marge reunites the young couple in the Springfield stadium, putting the groove back into their marriage and Buck's game.

Decent later-run Simpsons
7 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has 2 classic baseball-related quotes. The Vin Scully-esquire announcer makes a comment about "...if you're keeping score at home. And if you are, your loneliness saddens me." I can't remember the other one exactly: "Buck Mitchell is in a position every boy dreams about. Hitting a sacrifice fly to secure his minor league team a wild card spot." Great stuff.

The rest of the episode is fine, not spectacular, but good enough, I'd say. I doubt we'll ever have stuff as good as the "golden age" again, but this season has been pretty good overall.

I have nothing else to say, but it says I need more text for some reason.
