    Well, it sounds like at least Florimon is making it up with the glove.

    When guys are in there for their defense, and they don't make easy plays, it's maddening.

    "Just outside the reach of the normally sure-handed Florimon", according to Bert. While the replay shows the ball just missing the heel of the glove.

    Nolasco getting screwed by the error "discretion" of the hometown scorekeeper.

    The ball was not hard hit and right to the middle of his zone.

    With a LF/RF/1B/DH laden roster, the fact that a catcher is your defensive replacement in RF kind of says it all.

    Guys like that are usually referred to as "minor leaguers".

    We could ask Stew but I bet every scorekeeper in the league would call it the same way. Doesn't mean we have to like it, but errors don't get called the way that would be meaningful anymore.

    The bullpen did a pretty good job of limiting damage in an inning which could have really blown up in our faces.

    If healthy, I think Deduno might be (one of) the best long reliever in the league. Just don't put him in a pressure situation in the 8th or 9th inning.

    Glass half full take: At least he has over 200 professional games in the outfield. A certain other potential defensive OF replacement to start the year had roughly 0.

    It's easy to forget that fans of some other teams expect grounders to third like Pinto's to be converted into outs fairly routinely...

    Oh I know, but it sucks that Nolasco's sorta okay start now looks absolutely horrible. And it sucks that the Twins can't field pop ups or ground balls properly.

    Maybe he can get into the beer leagues to learn how to hit. I bet Colabello could get him a few contacts.

    I'm at work and can't see the game. I predict another HR by Hicksie. Now.

    Two walks and power from the left-handed swing... pretty good day for Hicks.
