Sad news about Williams. Apparently the drug demons were too much.

So I guess he's not in LF.

I'm sure they'll pinch hit for him, second inning at latest.

Return for the Hammer looks to be a big kid 6'4" and 225.Above average FB (65/80), avg Slider, working on curve and change.Was rated 9 on KC's prospect list before season, now 16.Probably similar to Butera for Sulbaran.Frees up a spot on the 40-man (Maybe Meyer?)

 

Good luck to the Hammer - beat those kitties!

Wow... Robin Williams!!!

I dont know what to say... I've always been a fan.

He was over the top... Many times... Too much over the top... But... I've always appreciated people who went for it and Robin went for it... Every single time.

One of the funniest guys on the planet and to hear it was a suicide just leaves me shocked.

I guess it's another example of comedy and tragedy being very closely linked together.

I figured that one out...

 

Blue = switch hitter (ambidextrous pitcher?)

Red = left handed batter/pitcher

Black = right handed pitcher/batter

Player upside down leads to fan (and front office) disappointment.

Lineup Change: Plouffe moves from 7 to 5, Parmelee in LF batting 7.

I just thought of a guess: BP?

 

Oh, and Italics = Bench?

Thanks, Scotty ... I'll adjust the lineup in the OP.

Idiots will be idiots. Recognize it and don't be one yourself or engage in pointless dialog. Unless you are trying to entertain yourself.

Flip side of the mania and all those highs .... are the lows.

1-0 after 1 inning... That should be all Milone needs.
