    AAA Plouffe has another brain fart. I so wanted Cola up with the sacks jammed.

    On the other hand, if they were out of Butterfingers, an excuse to return to see if they're back in stock isn't a bad thing.

    My current guilty pleasure is simpler... Cheetos and Mountain Dew. (Which long ago, i dubbed Ambrosia and Nectar) Just gotta remember to clean up the orange dust...
    Whats the old Joke...

    Guy: Doc... I woke up this morning and my (blank) is orange.

    Doc: That's odd... Have you been eating anything unusual?

    Guy: Nothing unusual... Ummm... Let's see... I had Cheetos before I went to bed.

    BTW, Why the heck does he always send Tonkin in to throw fastballs down the middle with guys on base? The guy has allowed 5 out of 9 inherited runners to score. Let Gibson finish the damn inning. I'm done with this game. Gardy's managed another loss.

    Possibly.

    It would have kept the score 5-0.

    Plouffe needs to be more patient at the plate. There was no reason to get itchy for a hit.

    Exactly right... You let the game come to you at the plate... In the field... You come to the game... At the plate you gotta let it come to you.

    My wife just asked me to take the garbage out. Just to keep everything normal... I told her... "After the game".

    Speaking of Escobar's hitting, he's done a really good job today, but he needs to be smarter on the base paths.. Don't drive it into the wall, then get gunned out at 3rd base..

    I agree with two outs... But... I like the "going for it mentality" on the base paths. Errors of enthusiasm are tolerable to me.

    Except at the plate.

    How can Gardy-Andy can be so uptight about handing out walks but then on the hitting side he gives guys the green light on 3-0
