So now Dozier has 3x as many homers as KC, and is just one behind Texas!

I'm coming around to the idea of Mauer leading off, followed by Dozier.

Now if only Gardy would come around to that thinking.

and another Dozier homer. This looks like it is going to be a Dozier Day, unless Pelfrey pitches a Quality Start.

How much leftover food is in Derek Norris's beard?

He got it! Bottom of the inning coming up.

(and i think it was a Punto walk... Just as glad they didn't bean Punto. But either way, bases were loaded with two out and top of the order. Now their not, as the inning's over.)

Kubel: Revenge is sweet.

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

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 don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

I think sampleSize was referring to this story:
