    Thanks, Ollie.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Looks like the rain is going to wait there for awhile. At least until 10.

    Plenty of time for "straight as an arrow fastball with a 0.00 ERA Mike Pelfrey" to completely dominate the Royals lineup.

    Right?

    The Horse is my guy for 2013, until of course, as horses are prone to do, he breaks down.

    It's "empty the bench day" I guess.

    The good thing (or sad, depending on your point of view) is that the bench may actually be better than the starters.

    I'm somewhat surprised that Mauer is still in their catching and not DHing. Mauer's catching so far this year is at a level we used to complain about when Doumit did the same. Plus, he took a few pitches to the body yesterday and Sunday.

    I'm happy to see Mastro finally get a start. Hicks can be back in tomorrow. Let's see if Mastro is on a roll or not.

    To answer your question cryptically, "it depends", does Mastro's walker have wheels on it? The way DicknBert and co. went on and on, it sounded like his shin bruise was possibly career-ending.

    This is the best lineup run out there so far this year.

    Yet... He pinch ran and attempted a steal?

    Very curious signal sent about his health. His shin is OK if he's running in my opinion.

    Or, as a practical matter, indistinguishable at this time. At least the middle infielders. Hicks is just due a day off, and Mastro is due a start.

    Someone in the organization is trying to prove a point. I hope it is Mauer.

    Not necessarily. This one's just a Bad Idea.
