I'm not liking this start by Pelfrey
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Home today due to illness. At least I got to see that bad news bears event that the dodgers just pulled.


I was thinking about liking this post but I didn't want you to get impression that I liked you being sick.

Hope you feel better.

Istanbul you say... Will you be serving Turkey or is she tired of it.

Mmm. Turkish food. That's what I could go for right now.

I did not object to re-signing Pelfrey. Now I want him to return the favor and resign. This isn't good, and it isn't getting better.

Everyone knows how difficult the Ethier-Uribe-Olive portion of the Dodgers lineup is, let's cut Pelf some slack

She was just in Turkey for a week, watching her boyfriend play. They are both getting in at 9 tonight, and I've been informed that they both want to feast on non-sheep based meat.

Crawford has to be one of the poster kids for bad FA signings. OPS of .800 or better 5 of his last 6 years with Tampa. Since then:
2011, Boston, .694
2012, Boston, .785 (31 games)
2013, LA, .736 (116 games)
2014, LA, .501 (22 games)
7 years, $142 million.

Was going to say that we had to celebrate a Twins lead quickly while Pelfrey was on the mound ....

but NOTHING happens quickly with Pelfrey on the mound.

Sigh, sigh, sigh.
