because the 9 spot leads off an inning more


It likely will do that even moreso, when you have the pitcher batting in front to make that third out more frequently.

So was it Thursday or Friday last week that Antony declared that Escobar would be getting the majority of the starts at SS. He has now started 2/6 with Florimon the other 4 (plus one start at 3B for Escobar.) And Santana continues to get splinters. This just shows that Florimon on the bench is a worthless option, can't hit and can't play any position other than SS. Send him down already.


I can only say "Good News", as this might mean that Antony wasn't serious when he told Berardino that he didn't forsee promoting Meyer any time soon, or maybe at all this year.

I have a feeling before long Danny S is going to become a big fan of this guy:

It could be worse:

"@SportsCenter: Braves P Aaron Harang will bat 8th tonight. Atlanta has scored just 10 runs during current 6-game losing streak."


I think LaRussa invented that. He didn't like the pitcher hitting before the top of the lineup came back around. So he started putting his pitcher in the 8th spot. Leaving the ninth spot to a better hitter who had a better chance of getting on base for his better hitters to knock in.

I honestly think Gardy should do that with Florimon... Move him to 8th so Dozier and Mauer have better chances of hitting with a base runner on.

My wife and I honeymooned in Cincinnati, OH. Just to throw another city out there.


When I was younger... It was a goal of mine to see every baseball stadium. So when it came time to plan the Honeymoon... I told my wife that baseball was part of the package.

So we made it a baseball compromise... Niagara Falls and Baseball on the way and back.

It was 24 years ago but... The trip was... Madison Wisconsin the 1st night... The Old Comiskey Park (they were building the new one across the street). 2nd Night South Bend... 3rd night Cleveland... No baseball... The Indians were not home... Just Dancing and Partying on the flats... Loved the bar hopping in Cleveland...

4th and 5th nights was Niagara Falls...

6th Night... Toronto.. Sky Dome

7th night... Detroit... The old Tiger Stadium

8th night... We made it home.

So when people ask me where I spent my Honeymoon... I say Cleveland and then watch them struggle to reply to that.

I once saw an episode of the honeymooners.

"One of these days, Bang Zoom! Straight to the moon!"

I only hope the quote applies to ball or two off a twins' bat tonight...

Elsewise, i'm listening close for good ideas should ever have need of a honeymoon plan.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Honeymoon Ideas... Chattanooga.

Apart from location here's a great idea.

Hire a few people to decorate every car driven to the parking lot by the people attending your wedding.

And then have them stand guard over yours.
