When he finds himself in times of trouble,
Brother Gardy looks at second.
Speaking words of wisdom:
Bat him second.

And in the hour of darkness,
He is looking right at second base,
Speaking words of wisdom,
Bat him second.

Bat him second, Bat him second,
Bat him second, Bat him second,
Whisper words of wisdom,
Bat him second.

And when the broken-hearted fanbase,
Living in the Twin Cities,
Ask Ron for an answer,
Bat him second.

For though they may be parted,
There is still a chance that they will see,
There will be an answer,
Bat him second.

Bat him second, Bat him second,
Bat him second, Bat him second,
Always the same answer,
Bat him second.


So when exactly, did Lennon and McCartney visit Haight-Ashbury? Are you still collecting royalties?

I know why Dozier is batting second. Gardenhire doesn't want a lineup ending with Hicks, Dozier, Florimon, Diamond. Now, let's grant him that for a second . . . why Dozier instead of Florimon? Now it is stupid to grant him that, though. I would keep Mauer within two batters of the sacrificial pitcher, for one thing. And, Dozier's offense is terrible yada, yada, yada.


How about an order ending with Hicks, Escobar, Diamond, and give Florimon a try at the 2-spot, if Gardy is so dead-set on returning Mauer to #3?

Florimon .696 OPS vs Dozier .508 OPS

Laudner just got done saying, and I quote, 'when you try to strike people out that's what happens you're gonna start walking people.'

To borrow from Jim Palmer: the only thing Mr. Buck Ninety knows about big-league pitching is that he couldn't hit it. :)

/ edit: oh, I guess I really should say it: Tim was actually a pretty decent hitter

And just like that, Dozierzie comes through with a bingle.

I still cannot fathom that Doumit is playing and not Parmelee. Do not care about the HR he hit while I type this,,,,,,,,,.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

A bit of useless off-topic musing, spearmint certs and summer shandy don't mix.

Does anyone have access to something that tells if Hicks is back to taking third strikes a lot lately? That would take him back to Week 1, if so.

Then you should do what I do. Don't mix them.

In that case my earlier post may have been redundant. Never mind.

I was literally typing it at the time. I though maybe I should help Hicks with a rant too, but there is only so much magic in these fingers.

Judging by most nights, that is the rest of us's job.
