So what you're saying is we should just bunt all night until he loses his mind?

Me thinks it is the Twins lineup making him look like Garza.

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


He forgot to do his stretching exercises before the game and the umpire called him out for trying to do it impromptu.

I know that one.


Quite amusing, perhaps more so than my referent... Though mine predated you tube.

1 hole is rangers returning
2 holes are wildlings
3 holes are white walkers


The one-L lama, he's a priest
The two-L llama, he's a beast
And I would bet a silk pyjama
There isn't any three-L lllama


The author's attention has been called to a type of conflagration known as a three-alarmer. Pooh.

(And the page googled what had this poem so i didn't have to depend on memory, also mentioned poem "Lineup for yesterday" which looks pretty good)

We got another almost baserunner. Nice catch by the indians' center fielder... Morgan.

Big ups by Morgan to take away a hit from Pinto. Did you know Morgan batting .296 and playing centerfield has been in AAA for Cleveland. Wouldn't it have been nice to have signed Nyjer Morgan in the off season?

Hey Brian,

Here's a fun fact for you. Nyjer Morgan played a few games for the Regina Pats hockey team. The guy is a good athlete.

Great catch. I'm not shedding any tears over not having that clown on our team though, despite our dire OF situation.

He stretched a double and over slid the bag. He might have been out at 2 without the over slide.

There was only room for one of his characters on the roster, not two:

Just turned on game and the first thing I see is Nyjer Morgan's robbery of Pinto's XBH. Gamecast isn't working properly, since it shows Nolasco hasn't allowed a baserunner.

Gomes doing an excellent job of putting Pinto's 'defensive issues' in perspective...

And no problem with Florimon's bat this time around...

Walk, steals second, and gets 3rd on over throw...

and in on a Dozier Double!

1-0

Dozier's tipping his swings, with that grimace.
