    Don't look now, but Arcia has a walk 3 games in a row. That's a good sign.

    Their broadcast is where I found that Correia factoid, but I knew the famous one already.

    Zuke's been so good this year, it's kind of a shock to see him not deliver against Happ. Too bad...really got a fat fastball for strike 1.

    Casey Fien? Well, it's probably Ozzie Smith. Or Weird Al Yankovic.

    Good addition.
    I have to wonder, with all the discussion lately about unwritten rules, just how much of this kind of joshing (and gesturing especially) is tolerated by the other team before it gets construed as taunting or making light of them, resulting in perceived honor being at stake?

    That was a brutal at-bat by Escobar there.

    Good question, but it was pretty apparent they were teasing each other

    Great catch. Considering his previous boycott, it's maybe more than just a good sign...

    Happ is a pitching version of Mike Hargrove.

    This odd, odd game continues. Gritty at bat by Santana though...he's a very pleasant surprise.

    I officially endorse Santana starting over Escobar at SS whenever we scrounge up a real CF.

    I totally agree- he put his bat on some tough pitches to stay alive, then beat out a nubber. Really nice job.
