Don't know how this will end, of course, but it's nice to see the Washington Generals taking it to Meadowlark Lemon today.

So they moved Jesse Chavez to the bullpen? Must be nice being able kick a sub 3.50 era out of the rotation.

They sent a 3.55 ERA to the minors and traded him for a fourth OF that they had DFAed in May.

Don't fall for the ol' "water bucket full of confetti" trick, Gardy!  You know it's comin'!

The As announcers said that Hammer has 8 HR in 18 games against the As.  Someone should be calling the Angels and Tigers tomorrow to make sure that they are aware of this stat.

And give them until noon EST tomorrow, keeping Willi frozen in carbonite until then to avoid injury...

The Tigers are intentionally walking Melky Cabrera AND Joey Bautista to load the bases and face... Danny Valencia.

 

edit: I guess Juan Francisco is PH-ing

Yeah, but trying to wait until the game is over...

 

Sorry, that was cheap. Even for me.

Anybody been to the collessium? Looks like a bad place to watch a game. You're 70 yards from the action even if you're in the front row.

I have, but I had a great seat so had a good view.

 

Awful stadium though, and when I was there it was literally me and a couple thousand other folks in the stands.  I was sitting behind the plate, and I could hear individual conversations from folks out in the right field seats.  I kid you not.  

Go Twins!

Berardino always calls it "Raw Sewage Coliseum" or just RAC.

Positive sign for Dozier: A walk in each game of this series. He went about two weeks after the All-Star game without a single base on balls.
