Joe has played in the outfield, and Pinto has a new first-baseman's glove.

Just in case, dontcha know.

DL move today. Either Willy or Arcia. I might do both, get Herrman and Mastro for 15 days.

It will get Pinto in lineup everyday and allow Arcia and Willy to heal well.

I guess we will see how serious Willys injury is.


something needs to happen. We can't go into opener with two bench guys (one being the backup catcher). I'd send down a pitcher for a couple days before sending someone to DL

That was a horrible curve... But as bad as you can throw it.

Early signs point to Nolasco sucking.

Depends on your definition of Riot. If riot means turning over cars and lighting them on fire... I'd say no because the membership is too scattered. If riot means typing mean words in the direction of Gardenhire... I'd say yes.


Fun legal fact: a riot generally requires either disturbing the peace/criminal mischief with two or more or three or more people. However, in Alaska, you can't be criminally convicted of rioting unless there are six or more people involved. So if you and four buddies want to tip over cars and light them on fire, I suggest you do it in Alaska.

Yeah but flipping over a sled dog is hard. They usually get right back up.

Not quite, unless he blames it on the wind or his incredible intake at the buffet table.

He's up in the zone with everything. He should aim lower and that may change his outcomes.

There's something about the sound of a ball coming off a bat that just makes him all warm and fuzzy inside.

I'm all for replay to get calls right, but this manager coming out of the dugout to not challenge has to end.

Any thoughts on Nolasco so far?
Also, the replay situation...

If Francon questions a third call without a challenge and I'm an ump I eject him

Nice to see you GCTF. You're definitely the 2nd funniest poster on the board (behind DPJ of course)
