    Colabello!
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    OK, that was awesome. Marny was interviewing Colabello's parents during his at-bat, and Marney said maybe he'll hit a home run. About a second before he hit it. Then she started screaming (in a lovely, controlled way). She also said he hit two on her birthday once in college. 2/3 of the way to my 3-spot, don't stop now!

    -- the "she" was Chris' Mom. Dick and Bert were nearly screaming too.

    This Colabello story is awesome. How long can he keep it up? The longer he does it the more I believe.

    Not to step on this nice sentiment, but that's (bold) usually how it goes, right?

    Actually, as a Minnesotan, the longer things go well, the more you look for the inevitable other shoe to come crashing down. It's genetic.

    I'm an unabashed Pelfrey apologist, but he's really struggling tonight.

    That said, you're right...if Mauer doesn't throw high to second, Pelfrey still hasn't given up an earned run tonight.

    Ya, not the wisest thing of me to say. Meant to say that eventually i'll be all in on him if he keeps it up for a much longer.

    Amen, Chief. We are all about assuming a reversion to a really low mean.

    Stories like Colabello are one of the things that make baseball the greatest game ever invented. Sure, you get unexpected phenoms in other sports too, but it never seems to have the same charm that a baseball story does.
