    All joking aside, this is another one that belongs on the heads of the batters.

    One bad inning from Diamond aside, the pitching has done the job. Neither Diamond nor the bullpen lost this.

    Too bad they took Harvey out when he was absolutely dominating.

    To be fair... Harvey is legit.

    Isn't there a law against taking a pitch right down the middle for a 3rd called strike to end the game?

    What's the penalty for that?

    Gardy, snapping at a reporter in PG about moving Hicksie down in the order:

    "We'll let you know when we're going to do that so you don't have to keep asking every day".

    At least he managed to avoid dropping the F bomb between "every" and "day".

    That provides meaningful consolation. Let's hope that the offense picks up tomorrow.

    Home field advantage is left in the dome.

    It looks like Diamond ran out of gas after 4. Maybe next time, he can get to 6. He'll be fine.

    I respectfully disagree. I think you may have been trying to be humorous, but this is nothing to joke about.

    People once described Parm's RF defense as Delmonesque, I think he's on the brink of easily surpassing the Kubelesque standard.

I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be a long, hard slog to make all my game commitments this year .

    +1 on all counts. And Parm has had few enough reps in right, especially in the last 3 years and in Target Field, that his defense there should have more room for improvement than most guys of his age and experience level.

    Finally! People accepting that Parmalee isn't some sea lion in the OF.

    Judgement call, as I was recycling a very old sports joke, but I took it down shortly after you commented. If it hurt your eyes so much, you'd probably edit or remove your own response now.

    I got a real good laugh out of it, so did my father when I told it to him. We don't need to take ourselves so ****ing seriously every minute of every day.

    I don't think you should have deleted your post.
