The F and F boys in the 8-9 spots.....there's a ban in there just waiting to be had, even in a game thread.

I'm on board with this lineup too. Some guys need a break. It's like the old getaway day lineup you used to see from Kelly. Sometimes it works.



This lineup definitely screams getaway that's for sure.

If it ever makes sense to start Florimon, it would make sense today given Gobson's ground ball tendency.

The last play in the first inning showed that. I do not think Santana, Nunez, or Escobar would have had that.

A strike out per inning? Nice work, Gibson!

Seriously?? I just looked at Florimon's stats, he is hitting .108.

Scratch that, after a strikeout, .106

Nice. I'm not normally a C&W fan, but when it's heavier on the W like this, it's not so hard to take.

Hard to believe both Fryer and the Florimonster would both strike out looking.

Yeah I like my Country with a healthy dose of outlaw and Honky Tonk.

Well, swinging can distract ya from seeing where it goes. I'm sure they're gonna come through later in the game when it matters?
