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.

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.
If Morales started at 1B today, it would have been 67%
Actually make that 70% with Deduno

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.
Some people see things as they are and ask why? Others see things as they never were and claim mad cow.
