How about the dynamic duo of Florihermann finishing under .100/.200/.200?

I'm not sure, but I think just because you combine players doesn't mean you get to add the slash lines together.

If I combine them does it open up a roster spot?

You're going to have to help me out on this one, Chief.

RB had a "My Little Runaway" riff going in his original GT intro.

I think.

Could have been my imagination running away with me.

And Go Plouffe!

Yes. For another reliever.

I was thinking some sort of reliever/catcher hybrid.

Cut Floriman now. Why is Santana not playing today? Why is Floriman still on this roster?

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

His defense is just so smooth.

You forgot to mention his range. I don't know why they even need a 2B and 3B with him out there.

btw ... a little off topic ... I just posted a blurb over in the minors ... Buxton has been added to the Miracles' roster. I think that means he's ready for play. Yay! Wonder how long before he's promoted then to AA ...


Nothing is off topic

Since you went a little off topic, may I veer away as well with a tasty little SSS discovery I made this morning:



This is Kennys Vargas's plate numbers over the last 2 weeks. The Beast awakens....no one's taking much note,,,,,and he's doing this with virtually no support in front of, or behind him, in the New Britain batting order.

We'll know soon enough when Nunez has a go at second or third.

Herrmann with 3 swings and misses in his first PA. Let's see if he can foul one off this time.

Thanks for the gameday thoughts. Good stuff, as usual. I see you survived the wedding.

Re so many wanting to leave Illinois, guess I'm guilty. I was born in Moline. Left three months later. Guess I couldn't stand it.


I even stayed awake... I'm so proud of myself.

Just sat down on my own furniture and I've got the game on with a lead.

Ive seen enough of North Dakota for the time being.
