Not much punch without Morneau and Plouffe. Parmelee sits and Butera plays.

Rocketpig, can you do word filters like you did with BYTO? I'm requesting that the world Butera forever be changed to The Latino Whisperer.

oh, and bookit needs reinstating too if you are up to it.

Or perhaps filter Butera to Butera, "The Latino Whisperer," -- so we avoid the downside of word filters... just an idea

Yeah, there won't be any filtering of player names, especially one as good as Butera. He's so good that he can single-handedly drive the traffic for an entire site. We should up his exposure from 1 thread per week, to at least 3 or 4.

Hey, my suggestion was mere tokenism. So DON'T* drive me over with the snark bus. :P

6-9 in the lineup looks like a bad AAA team. Really bad.

Yeah, compare the sox's 6-9 and it's a landslide of talent difference. "Casilla, Butera, Carroll" sounds like runs!

We only have two going on right now. We definitely need more. Get on it.

They save some 80 plus runs by leaving Plouffe on the bench.

Which is the worse 7-9 Casilla, Butera, Carroll or the 2009 Harris, Tolbert, Punto ---- It's a toss up to me.

Bases loaded and nobody out, Willingham and Doumit due up and we only come away with one run. That is more than a little disappointing.

Frankie always seems to pitch better with a lead. Too bad we didn't come away with 4 or 5 in the first.

No worries, Drew is catching.

Nice play by Dozier. Dunn hit him a change up and he managed to stay with it.

No way, that call must have come from the bench.

those 4 or 5 runs in the first make all the difference in the world. Frankie would still be pitching with a lead at this point.

100% of the time Liriano pitchers in late July against the White Sox with Butera catching, he sucks. Clearly Butera is the problem.
Lighten up Francis....

Drew calls the wrong pitch, Span can't run the bases TR waits much longer he won't get anything. Of course, the teams are lining up to pay all Mornies salary and send us a quality player so not all is lost.
