Unfortunately that bullet travels at a speed measured in feet per hour these days.


Sounds awfully similar to my 'fastball'.

I don't see Miggy... I see Melky and Everth...

I do see Nelson Cruz... Another Fantasy player of mine gone.


I didn't either. Norm/Glorm may already be six deep.

You have completely forgotten how absolutely withering an "ew, he's OLD" can be.

Ugly incident at Redbox movie return tonight, so I'm totally ready to relate that tale to anyone who needs the "ew" refresher.

I thought I saw Miggy on a handwritten list that they flashed on the video.

BTW, Deduno need to come out of this game -- was at 100 pitches before the inning began.

How many times is that now that Gardy has had to pull a starter with no outs after leaving him in an extra inning?

Brock doesn't like me... You'll have to use your cred to help us out.


Cred? Isn't Game Thread Moderator somewhat akin in influence to Airman Sub-basic?

Cool... Glormie has joined me on the Deduno bandwagon. Only a few of us so far but there's room for more.


A month after he is voted the Cy, I may perk up and notice that he's actually been OK.
