Just noticed an odd fact......Mauer has the lowest SLG in the lineup. That is not some cheap shot, just fascinating to me.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Mauer could have thrown him out from left field and preserved the tie

I'm 100% percent behind leaving Hughes in. We got some big hitters coming up in 9th.
When I hear a pitcher is throwing a “simulated game” my first thought is that he repeated the opposing lineup 10,000 times. - Jonathan Judge

Bruce Springsteen from the album Greetings From Asbury Park. I believe it was 1973. And I didn't look it up... Thank You

Whats the point of pulling Hughes here? Not a single ball is hit hard, and yet for some reason we need to drop this on him???  I'm not going to lie, thankfully football season is here

And And.... Manfred Mann's Earth Band covered two other songs from that same Springsteen album and had at least minor hits with them... What were the other two songs?

The Boss.

Common misconception.Actually it was Bruce.

 

My cousin Bruce.We were fishing with my other cousin, Larry (no really), from a gravel road in central Minnesota.Larry 'caught' Bruce in the neck with a Daredevil, and my grandma drove us at just under the speed of sound in her Pontiac (police interceptor version) Tempest to the closest retired country doctor's lake home.

 

Bruce semi-fainted and bonked his head a bit, and we agrees on the way that the light that he saw was significant and should be commemorated, even if everything else he saw seemed like pure rubbish at the time.My panicky Etch-a-sketch recording of his vision is the song classic you know today.

 

Oh, and Bruce survived the Daredevil strike.He owns a bowling alley and is a great dad.

Good pitch but guaranteed fastball there. Not well hit but still.
