And Mauer is out.


Well ... he should take a day off. And they need to get Parms in there as more decisions are needing to be made. But we should start a pool as to when Dozier will get a day off.

Wow. Thanks for sharing..... I wonder if the discussion included a raise for Cuellar? There are now lineup scenarios where 60% of the team will be Spanish-first players.


If Morales started at 1B today, it would have been 67%

Actually make that 70% with Deduno

Oh, that was another thing that was said ... he would primarily DH, especially in the beginning, but that in time, he'll have to get a glove on and play in the field, too ... giving Mauer a day off here and there.

Well … all this talk of needing a Spanish speaking coach around … and granted, Cuellar is the bullpen coach … but he did great. I don't think anyone else is needed. (And okay, I opened a can of worms, so let's not get too carried away with that topic even though game threads are kind of whatever for topics.) :)


One of the posters on the ESPN comments page for the Hou-Min game the other day brought up that more than 50% of Houston residents speak Spanish. I didn't bother to point out that that's not inconsistent with more than 50% speaking English, too; didn't want to get banned by them for trolling or bickering or whatever.

I hope Parmelee takes advantage of the opportunity. He's been struggling, and I think he can help his cause with a big game today.

Loses too much in translation. Much like Shakespearean opera - you have to hear it in the original Klingon.
