    I was here for ya' buddy. But with the score 5-1 and an early AM tee time, I can't go on. BTW, I noticed that Bremer was critical of Blackburn or at least honest, continuing to emphasize the lack of ground balls and acknowledging the poor results. My thought was that Bremer had the word that he could throw Blackburn under the bus and Coomer missed the memo. G 'night.

    Vote for Pedro! Nice grab there Florimon!! Covers far more ground going out than Willingham can coming in. Good hustle!

    Nice jack, Joe. Maybe Willingham can follow it up!

    Josh comes through with a smash. It's starting to get interesting.

    Well, actually, Prior provided most of the power on both those jacks, but it sure was nice to see that elevated swing from Joe.

    Going back to Florimonsy's awesome grab, I'll say that having him at short, with his range, really helps with having Hammer in LF with his range.

    I accept that.

    I'd like to see a few more chances going left and right and see some tests of his arm strength and accuracy, but, so far so good.

    I'm really surprised he's as close to .300 as he is with the way he swings.

    As long as it takes. Don't know that it matters at all at this point and he's getting paid no matter. Maybe the shame will force him into retirement, saving us the money next year. I was hoping this was the Nishioka strategy as well.
