... and if he doesn't get those calls, he needs to make the in-game adjustment that Laudner calls for and use that cutter as a show pitch ... He still has the 96 mph four-seamer and a pretty good looking change to get guys out .... Perez has all kinds of stuff this year, but usage has been off against the Rays and Indians.

Oh I completely agree. I was just commenting on what I felt like has been causing him issues as of late.

I'm surprised nobody thought to make an age crack over my ancient mariner post.

Ichiro retired at the beginning of the season though. No need to pile on to the guy.

No, no age cracks here. Some subjects are best left unremarked on.

Saw only light showers off and on today. 30% chance of rain come game time, partly sunny. They will play tonight. 

Uh oh ... you've surely jinxed it now ...

Let me see if I can help:

Those things come with a weedwacker to keep the foliage in check?

I elided over that particular anatomical reference.

 

I thought maybe it would be a crack to far.

 

Evidently, I thought wrong.

Which toe?

I think it is normal for a toe to look big. Namely the "big" toe.

I was going to pull up a Mr. Orange video, but decided it was a bit gruesome for a wholesome family blog such as this.
