Gardy likes Pinto catching Deduno because he has to stay sharp every pitch instead of losing focus and getting complacent.


I thought it was because the Deduno's catcher tends to get a little beat up and they don't want to expose Suzuki to that.

Can decide if I like this post or not, so I'll just add a smily face at the end of my sentence. :)


I clicked Like because:

A: SampleSize has got a good soul
B: I give the set ups some thought(at least 5 of them) and I appreciate the interaction and likes.
C: There isn't a clarification button.

Actually... If Snepp or Labombo or anyone could find a GIF for Terry Ryan doing some acting... It would probably be the greatest post ever!!!

No acting, but singing and dancing...

Mauer's new walk up music:

"and it's One! Two! Three strikes you're out! at the old ball game!"


That was funny!!!

He mentioned that but it was more tongue in cheek that he thought Suzuki would appreciate not having to get beat up. He expounded that they thought it would help sharpen him behind the plate with Deduno being a little more wild and you can't just hold your glove in one spot and expect him to hit the target.

Dozier takes an awful hack at a pitch a foot out of the zone and Mauer flies out to left. Who didn't see that coming?

Dozier having a rough go of it lately. He missed that by 1 foot and a half. And Mauer hit's it long for an out. Our rabbits foot has left the team.

They are good... I'll give you an 8 out of 10.

For the full 10... You will need Bo Derek or the actual Terry Ryan pounding the table.

Actually Bo Derek was always just OK... I always thought there were better 10's... So that won't work either.

High top end, but great acceleration too. More useful for infielding and base-stealing than max speed. Hope he's ok. Now Hicks gets to bat against a lefty, which might be even better than the mental break of watching from the dugout...

Actually, an 8 seems generous. And yeah, Bo Derek seemed less 10ish than some of her contemporaries even before she hooked up with Rob Lowe in Tommy Boy, thereby retroactively removing most of her prior hotness.

Santana will be fine. Batting helmets are dangerous though. I think that's why they were outlawed until the 50s.

Don't worry, still plenty of game left for a real injury.
