    Next time go ahead and mention those - I could stand to hear a little more

    I'm sure somebody somewhere down in their preseasons picks.

    If you put an infinite number of monkeys in front of an infinite number of typewriters for an infinite amount of time, all pecking away randomly, they'll eventually produce the works of Shakespeare.

    Didn't see the play, but I think with his past back problems, his game has to be to minimize risk of injury. It's most evident in his defense, but he's also tied with Morneau for least-likely to get sent by the third-base coach and not solely on the basis of speed, and he probably gets a pass on any baserunning decisions he chooses to make.

    They already produced the Internal Revenue Code.

    Bert keeps acting like this is do or die for Hendriks. There do seem to be fans frustrated with Hendriks, too, and he's obviously been pretty bad up in the bigs. But, why do people give him a shorter leash than Dozier, for example? I mean both players have comparable time in the big leagues and neither have looked good. The difference is, Hendriks has already pitched well in AAA and is younger.

    More home runs, too.

    I would add that there are not a lot of prospects ready to take his place. Also, if Pelfrey continues to pitch like he did yesterday, then that hole will need to be filled.

    So the question on everyone's mind here is.... can Florimon handle the bat?

    Now that's the kind of "sacrifice" I can get behind.

    Finally someone other than Plouffe gets HBP. Now Hicks has a golden opportunity.

    Is this plate appearance going to double the number of w/RISP Mauer has had this season?

    Mauer doesn't seem to be seeing the ball as well as usual.
