Another great AB from Mauer.

I guess I'll have to fire up the MLB.tv feed so I can wait for a closeup and look into his soul and see if I can see whether everything's all right.I remember the last time, he looked great and he was on a tear.If he's winking and blinking about 10 times before every pitch, shut him down.

You don't automatically get my respect. You have to get down and beg for it.

Probably that's it.He's waited all his life to impress Baltimore fans with some magic with the bat.That kind of pressure will get to anyone.He's only human.

 

/ we're teasing Gardy, not Joe, in case anyone didn't see that thread

You better get him on his cellphone and tell him to stop with whatever he's doing there that's jinxing Joe.Have him go buy crabcakes when Joe is up to bat, for instance.

And, of course there was one guy I didn't want to hit the 10,000th, so I turned the game off when he came up to bat.And that's the last i want to hear and read about it. 

I'll say this for ya, Halsey...when someone's on your $*&^ list, they stay there.

Santana lets another ball drop in centerfield.  Beers sound good.

 

Gibson kept the wheels on for the first 3 innings, despite some tough spots...here goes.
