Vasquez made a great play on that bunt to nail the runner at third.

At least, Vasquez looks like he can be the 12th pitcher for MN next yr in the Jeff Gray mopup role but instead have pretty good stuff

Watching the Royals broadcast...they've been showing shots of David Lough's family (making his MLB debut today). There appears to be a rather huge fat guy sleeping right behind them.


Throw the Fat Guy in the Fountain... That'll wake him up.

Yeah, not a good effort. Well, maybe for Doumit at bunting, but that was pretty bad regardless. Really trying to stay out of the double play I guess.

OK, this is what we've all been waiting for. Bases load for Alexi Casilla with two outs, tying run on 2nd...

That's the desperation of batting .176 (9/51) in last 11 games.

Wow, Chief must've taken a break from sticking pins in his Casilla doll.

Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy.

Make his hair and beard white and I'd swear this Collins guy is moonlighting as the spokesgnome for Travelocity.

A forklift may be required. This guy is pretty big.

I thought of Chief before the ball even got to the center fielder.

Regarding Vasquez, I think it all about command. He looks really good when he is ahead on the count--very hittable when he's behind on the count. Let's see what he does in subsequent starts, but I would think he could challenge for a position on next year's staff.

Who finishes the season with the higher BA Parmelee (currently at .228) or Florimon (currently at .259)? This is obviously half glass full/empty perspective.
