So, counting the negative WAR from the Revree trade........

Scouts that love May think he can learn to throw strikes. Other scouts say they doubt iit and he is a reliever at best. It would be nice if the first group was right. One heck of a trade so far......

On the lighter side, um, I got nothing. Have fun everyone, I am pretty sure I am turning in early.....

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)

The command and control are obvious issues...but hopefully fixable.

 

I wouldn't mind so much if he were flashing great stuff and missing.

Yeah, there is that uncomfortable difference between refining hard-to-hit stuff and knocking down the mascot without Crash Frye inviting you to at a mound conference.

I realize it's scoreless into the 5th, but when did May become a 90-92 MPH pitch-to-contact guy?

He's actually pitching hurt; he just hasn't been told yet. :)

Ron: it's my job!!!

Carol: To Manage the Club!!! Terry is doing your job right now!!!

Ron: I have to talk to the press after the game!!!

Carol: What Press??? There hasn't been any press since 2010.

Ron: There is press at every game.

Carol: Marney Gellner and a microphone doesn't count.

All right, can we get a run or two this inning?  Please?? Think about the kitten, developing a lifetime bad habit.

It is too late -- it looks like Gardy has already led his cat down a bad path (although that looks like Carol's hand).  I am actually kind of surprised he did not get the cat hooked on chew instead.smoking_cat.jpg

I didn't know they did TV-umpire-reviews in Little League. Crazy. Anyone else watching? It's the last inning, tight game. Then back to the Twins.

C'mon, mike, you don't want to miss the chance that The New Santana will try to stretch a bases-empty bunt single into a standup triple, do you?

Bundle your pet in a towel like a kitty burrito when shaving The Patch spot to avoid Cat Scratch Fever, posters!

Is there any other way to dream?

Reminds me of a line from Harvey to the effect of "because no one brings anything small into a bar."

That-a-Plouffe (and Vargas and Arcia for getting on base)

We now have at least set up a save situation....

Oh well.

4-6 sounds a little better than the previous scores of the game.

G'night!
