We haven't had a catcher bat this well since Joe Mauer!

4 RBI for Suzuki in the first two games? If present trends continue, I expect more of the same.

There's just something about working behind the plate that sharpens your perception on the offensive side too. It's too much of a pattern to ignore. SABR should look into this.

I'm really enjoying the fast start Hicks has gotten off to. Is that new First Basemen we signed supposed to be a good hitter? I see here he hasn't gotten a hit yet. I thought players at that position hit homeruns? Can someone fill me in?

Oh, gee... look who struck out again.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I thought that would have been a good time to use the bench and pinch hit Joe Mill.. O well..

How slow of a runner must Konerko be, to be pinch-run for by a catcher?

I will not be sad when Konerko and Dunn are gone from the socks

He not only struck out, he managed to look like a fan who won the 'take a major league at bat' drawing in doing so. Brutal.

If so, do we see Colabelo at first? :D
