Pat: 250... What would you like to do?

Hosken: Is there a Z?

Pat: Yes there are two of them... What would you like to do?

Hosken: I'd like to buy a vowel!!! A

Pat: Is there an A?... Yes... Bunches of them...

Hosken: Good... I like watching Vanna walk... It's hard to believe she is 95 years old.

Pat: What's Next?

Hosken: I'd like to Solve the Puzzle...

Pat: OK go ahead

Hosken: Pizza Zebra Amazed

Pat: No I'm sorry... That's not it... Ashbury your Up

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

Funny guy, more reason to sign him

Prediction--Yan Gomes will not with the Gold Glove at catcher in the AL. If we can't ridicule our own players, we can go after the opposition.

Gomes is the catching version of Knoblauch.


Yet I don't feel like throwing batteries at him.

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.

He'd fit right in with the Minnesota Hockey mentality. He should be a Twin... Then we wouldn't have to watch Escobar playing well out there.

You'd take Sam Fuld and Aaron Hicks over a guy who can make catches like that AND bat 296?

34 ABs this year, played in NPB in 2013, and has attitude issues. I'd rather we hadn't botched the whole OF situation this offseason instead of either of the options you listed.

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...


Do not attempt to adjust your gamecast... We control the horizontal. We control the vertical...

(original referent cause looking things up is fun.)

And sorry i'm too slow to put it on the first reply to yer post.

Now Now, Twins/Indians. Perfectly symmetric violence never solved anything.

Sure, me too, but options are what options are. He was available and I don't care what his attitude is. He's better than either Fuld or Hicks.

"On January 14, 2014, Morgan announced that he had signed a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training with the Cleveland Indians.[29] In spring training, he earned a spot on the 25 man roster and started the 2014 season as the starting center fielder and lead-off batter."

Hindsight is 20/20, but on January 14th, none of us actually thought we were going to break camp with Bartlett as an outfielder and no viable options in AAA and have Arcia, Willingham, and Hicks injuries in the first month.

To be fair, it was a play that not every major leaguer would make every time. But he's not a gifted fielder, the play was not made, and I'm gonna gripe.

And now in the top of the inning Cola gets robbed by good defense (other side of the field, for those into symmetry).

I think it's been established that Morgan is a loud mouth with no filter... But... I don't recall him not giving it 200 percent on the field... Maybe he has... I don't recall...

if that's the case... I'll take the clown.
