    Watermelon, refreshments, and night crawlers is exactly what is in our garage fridge and my grandparent's basement fridge.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Maybe that 2% differential explains the Bigfoot phenomenon. That's my best guess.

    The color of shoes is an exaggeration of course, but the ump is there ultimately to ensure that a fair game is played. Not to do one particular aspect of that or another. If he feels that one pitcher is trying to gain an unfair advantage by dawdling, and calls a borderline pitch the other way a few times, I can't get overly worked up about it. It wouldn't necessarily be my own style.

    What, exactly, is the gain in sending Zuke there with no outs?

    That's what I get, I guess.

    Mrs Chief and I are going refrigerator shopping later.
    Last time I got the oil changed in my car, the left rear tire was flat the next morning. The mechanic wouldn't make good, either.

    "Escobar's job is to get the runner to third base". NO IT'S NOT. His job is to hit. That continues to irritate me. If he makes an out, it would be helpful to advance the runner, but it is far better to get on base.

    He should be hot (which I'm sure is Brian's normal state) ..... watermelon should be icy cold. Like for group picnics when you put blocks of ice, watermelons, and water in a stock tank and let it chill!

    That's why Santana shouldn't be swinging at the first pitch!

    Danks is rattled. At least, it sure seems that way "watching" the game on the ESPN website. (I'm at work.)

    Three-zip is nice, but it feels like it should be more.

    A dull meaningless game at the end of the season? It's often like that.

    / yes yes, I saw "1967"
