Ullger doin what he did best as 3rd base coach....hold a runner @ 3rd who was off with the pitch, & throw was way off line with a punch/judy hitting Carroll up next.
Man he's a great coach wherever you put him.


I don't know.... have you seen Doumit run? Between Thome and him I don't know who wins a 50 meter dash. Really.


Besides which, Doumit couldn't have been "off with the pitch.". Runners on second and third.

Maybe Thome, Doumit, Willingham, and Morneau can suit up in the costumes and do the "Race Around Target Field." That would be fun to watch and would probably require some oxygen masks!:o

Twice Coomer has tried to chalk up Blackburns extreme hittability to "luck,". Both times Bremer has slapped him down. I'm both shocked and impressed, and wouldn't you know it, I'm apparently the only person anywhere still watching this crapfest.

Fine Coomer, the guy is just unlucky then. Permanently unlucky.

Nice to see Plouffe finally break that 0 for 14 skid after coming off the DL.

I was here for ya' buddy. But with the score 5-1 and an early AM tee time, I can't go on. BTW, I noticed that Bremer was critical of Blackburn or at least honest, continuing to emphasize the lack of ground balls and acknowledging the poor results. My thought was that Bremer had the word that he could throw Blackburn under the bus and Coomer missed the memo. G 'night.

Well, actually, Prior provided most of the power on both those jacks, but it sure was nice to see that elevated swing from Joe.

Going back to Florimonsy's awesome grab, I'll say that having him at short, with his range, really helps with having Hammer in LF with his range.

I'd like to see a few more chances going left and right and see some tests of his arm strength and accuracy, but, so far so good.

I'm really surprised he's as close to .300 as he is with the way he swings.

As long as it takes. Don't know that it matters at all at this point and he's getting paid no matter. Maybe the shame will force him into retirement, saving us the money next year. I was hoping this was the Nishioka strategy as well.
