And while I will get crucified for bringing it up...could Mauer perhaps play at less than 100 percent?


Why change up on what's worked so well.....

How do you have a negative OPS+ on May 7th? April 7th, sure. But May 7th?


I don't know but this has been a real golden opportunity to learn. Florimon is teaching us.

1. Escobar in LF

2. Florimon at SS

3. Suzuki/Pinto

4. Where's Oswaldo?

5. The Sky above you -- I read something today that made me pause for a second to ponder what I was reading. According to Military Experts... In Ten Years time... every single country on this planet will have armed drones. Sleep Tight everyone!!!


Good stuff! (tryin' to organize my thoughts -- like cleaning out the lint filter in the drier)

1. Only natural to me... Escobar is backing up Florimon after all?

2. I'm still rooting for Florimon. After all, we got the rubber band in our favor today.

5. Reminds me of a favorite friend's story. A pacifist vegetarian passing through a military industrial complex expo that reminds him of the future in terminator movies gets singled out by spokesman at a booth he passes. After enduring the spiel, the spokesman asked if my friend wanted to hear more about the fancy robot. My friend politely responds "No thanks, i helped make that robot." Needless to say, that friend has some really cool stories. -- But that wasn't my initial response... I was going to comment, if they were really military experts, they would have responded "the single country on this planet will have armed drones." And i woulda thought to myself, i gotta get me a new planet! Or at least a really nice decked out self sufficient bunker...

(Gar! i take too long tryin' to format stuff. Game's about to start!)

Baby steps... Batting Dozier first all season long was due to months of occupational therapy this offseason.

Cola has the right idea pouncing on a first-pitch strike. Bummer about the wheels though.

Good News... The demise of Cola may be pre mature... The bad News is Cola tagged out at 2nd... The Funny News... The way he was tagged out.

Interesting line from my gamecast. I' be interested in a detailed explanation here.

LAST PLAY:
C Colabello singled to left, C Colabello out stretching at second
