13 ABs, 5 singles. One just can't ignore these long term, large sample size trends.


It's a lot more significant when it's player-on-player specfic.

I am truly honored to be uncluded in your thoughts. Even with the comparison to an ape.

The .500 roller coaster you described sounds exactly what we went through with the Wolves. And yes, it was kind of sick.

Go Twins.

Edit: BTW, you put me off sandwiches for a while. :P

Top 5 sandwiches:

1)Philly: Has to be authentic, and I am FIRMLY in the Cheese Whiz camp, while my wife is in the Provolone camp.
Once, I saw a commercial on TV with Arby's advertising a Philly with Swiss cheese. I damn near broke the TV, that is not a Philly, please call it something else.

2)Cuban: Nothing beats a good cuban. But at the same time, it can be very hard to find a good one. Have ordered Cubans from many places that have left me disappointed. Have to say I wasnt impressed by the Cubans at TF. Too small, and maybe it was a function of SSS, as I've only tried them once, but mine had a chemical taste or something to it.

3)Meatball: Everyone who cooks has a 'signature dish'. Mine is Chicken Parmigiana over spaghetti with meatballs. I usually make it on Sunday's, and I make everything except the pasta from scratch, takes me most of the day.
Long story longer, there is almost nothing better than picking up some hoagie buns on my way home from work Monday for some amazing leftover meatball sandwiches.

4) Patty Melt.
Patty Melts are such a perfect combination of ingredients, and unlike the Cuban, it is pretty hard to screw up. This is one you can order most anywhere and know you are going to be satisfied.

5) Pastrami.
With lots of spicy brown mustard, YUM.

Bottom of the order is still a major concern.

Probably more bases-loaded walks this year than all of last year.

Based on today's game I'm beginning to question 2 things I hear a lot.
"Florimon's offense doesn't matter because he bats 9th." and.. "corner OF defense doesn't matter."
