I didn't see the catch... I hope to see it in the highlights.

I love good defense and I'm sure it would have brightened my day.

I didn't see it so I got ask... Did Dick call it Flanominull?


It was an amazing catch, in part because it was straight over his head and he had to sprint back to the wall and time his leap, reaching behind him and over the wall. He has Hunter-like vertical leap.

And yes, Dick called it "Flenominal" and "one of the best catches you will ever see a center fielder make."
"If you'da been thinkin' you wouldn't 'a thought that.."

I love it when Dick says Flanominull. I use it all the time when something makes me happy.

Ah Yeah... Of Course. There is always a goat to be scaped.

Anyway the run scored, and now we gotta answer it somehow...

If the Rangers are not going to walk us... We may need a few more hits.

I was imagining a goat with stone walkways... A fountain of someone peeing. Maybe some shrubs...

Or maybe just a simple goat topiary will suffice.

The rule is actually... The OF gets it... if he can get it and the infielder steps aside.

I would add "If the OF calls off the infielder who already called it," but yeah, the infielder should then yield to the OFer. But since I have no confirmation Parmelee called it...I'm gonna blame the guy who did call it until I learn otherwise.

Yeah...kind of an odd pinch hit, unless there's something wrong with Parmelee.

It's ok... We had a side discussion and determined that it was Hughes's fault.

Great AB by Dozier. A leadoff hitter who draws a wild pitch and a walk because he can crush the ball.

Mauer. No GIF. No image. No pop culture reference. Just... fingers crossed for turnaround.

Mauer is now 1 for 1 swinging at the first pitch, and 0 for 3 letting it go by. I know he's a future Hall of Famer, but honestly, does he not see this?

Santana with a nonplay. We can only wonder if Hicks would have caught it. Provus said it was hard hit, but he got turned around.
