Are we allowed to tell you the score, or do you want to find out later?


Yeah it's ok... But... Lie if you don't mind.

I had the Stop! Hammer Time image cued up, and Josh struck out.Gotta think up some more like that.In the meantime, I'll answer yours with "all of them, including George Brett" just to be safe.

Not much of a half swing.

As quoted from multiple Jordan Shafer scouting reports.

Alright Halftime.... And now the 9th inning has my full attention.

Oh Look... Fireflies... I wonder if we have any jars.

I don't think we do...

I like Tomato Sauce... Especially over Spaghetti or on Pizza.

That jump was worse than the Perez throw was good.

Very nice slide by Dozier too, giving him any kind of a chance as a normal one would have had him out straightforwardly.But, for naught.

I have waited until now to read Brian's game thread.  Today was a long day, and I deferred gratification because I knew that I might need it more later in the day.  Good #5 Brian, but I could still use a Carnak or two from someone.

My analysis: We should probably try to shut out the Royals the rest of this game.
