Glad you woke up.


It was more that Extra Innings didn't start the game until then. Missed all the run-scoring. And there were open channels to put the game, too, but no ...

Is that an age crack?


Can happen prematurely too.

I like Arcia. He is fun and makes me laugh.


As long as the object of his fun doesn't respond, "ow, eff word".

When was the last time the Twins scored 5 runs?


That game they gave up 9 early.

Oh, yeah.

I was kind of thinking of a 5 run lead. Would have to tax our brains for that one.

Mike Blowers, TV guy for the Mariners, sure can talk. He gets going and he's like Henry James, there's no stopping him. Then, suddenly, he's finished. Then, again, he starts up again.

Henry James, you know, RF for the old Philadelphia Athletics, 1890-1916. Long, long career.

The broadcast mentions the Yankees' Tanaka is going on the DL with elbow soreness. How long until they schedule him for Ricky Nolasco surgery?

Quite the baseball family, now that you mention it, with two Henrys and a William, plus assorted minor leaguers.

    It remains possible that Masahiro Tanaka will be seen by Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad before the end of this week.


    This seems a little bizarre to me. I thought he was scheduled for an MRI. I would think you'd want your team doc to see him fairly soon.

Eclairs. Waffles and pancakes. Inside cupcakes. With celery and carrots.

Okay, maybe not that last one so much.

Why are the Mariners planning on just using their bullpen tomorrow?
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Pretty bad looking attendance at the game. It's a Wednesday, so there's that; but the team is in contention too.

They pushed back King Felix so he'd start agains.t the A's. THat left them screwed up on starters, I think.

Wasn't McClendon the pitching coach for Detroit before they hired Rick Knapp (who was then replaced pretty fast)? Am I making that up?

Does it have something to do with skipping F. Hernandez and saving him to pitch against the more formidable A's?
