Kubel: Revenge is sweet.

Must have gotten mad at all the nasty comments about him.

Limited seats remain for home opener?
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Isn't that like asking what the crocodile has for dinner?


How long do you think Brian's nose will become if he goes to Derek Norris and just asks?

I was listening a bit to the top of the second driving into work... What happened to Pelf's newfound faster tempo on the mound? I swear it was about a minute between pitches to Norris.

Pinochio?

I wouldnt ask him... I'd run a scientific analysis. Petrie dish... Microscope... Gloves... Gloves for sure. A sample of the beard and analysis of the sample.

I think its possible... You'd find Billy Gibbons himself inside that beard.

"we signed these pitchers so we wouldn't get into a hole right away" looks about as accurate as "we will play meaningful games in September".....I think I typed that yesterday too.....

I think sampleSize was referring to this story:

Do you like Kipling?

I think so too. Fortunately the rules on trolling tend to be a little more relaxed here in the game threads. :)

Kipling? Not so much.

I'm more a fan of Rudyard.

Based on the ESPN gamecast, I don't think Pelf would have given up a single walk if the ump had more than a 6 sq. in. strike zone. You essentially have to groove one, or it's a ball.

and another reason for technology to call balls and strikes. Screw tradition. Let the strike zone be standard

For future reference, that was a setup for "I don't know. I've never Kipled." You'll find the opportunity comes up all the time. Real Life Of The Party stuff there. :)

LOL... As you know... Sometimes you take the dog for a walk and it goes right past the fire hydrant.
