Somehow I feel more confident that the play is going to be made with Adrianza....

His reasoning behind the "guns are faster now" theory was that it was really hard to bat against Roger Clemons and guys don't look like they're struggling against 100 now. 

 

Smalley is fine but that was pretty Jack-like. 

Fair enough. I can't disagree with that.

I-Rod's hitting wasn't great. It was good. And if you adjust for park and era, it's even less impressive. Mauer was a hell of a lot better with the bat.

In 2009 Mauer was the best baseball player in the world. Rodriguez was never that.

I’m just planning on a walk-off homer here.


Come on, man ... if that happens it’s all on you for bringing the biggest jinx to the thread.

Damn, that was a hell of a plate appearance from both ends of the spectrum.

 

Now get Santana and end this effing game.

The problem with Romo is he doesn't have a strike out pitch.

He does but it's not great. Choo had one hell of a plate appearance there and make Romo really work.
