That hasn't happened to me since I was 13.


Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Today's gameday contest: Which starter can reach 100 pitches before the start of the 5th inning.


1.1 - 1 that both do it.

The ball was really coming out of his hand well today, just not crossing the strike zone.


He pitched well, just didn't have a lot of luck - small strike zone today.

Yeah... We claim him!!! Parise 2


You can have Parise. I doubt Toews will be playing internationally for the US any time soon.

What's with all the walks, for both pitchers but Hernandez in particular?


I think he sucks.

Maybe it's a relay for life fundraiser - all the players had their family and friends pledge to donate for each time they walk around the bases.

I can imagine what Gardy will say when the inning is over: "Don't unpack your bags."


Turns out... I got hold of the transcript.

Gardy: Yo Pedro... Over here a second (Pedro walks over confused). Didn't Andy talk to you... No Walks... no walks... No walks...

Pedro: Yo no le comprendo

Gardy: (to everyone) Where's Wilken... No... (Starts to take steps with his feet ala charades)

Pedro: Caminata? Ce... Caminata.

Inning ends... Gardy looks at Pedro just standing there and not going out to the mound.

Gardy: You can walk out to the mound!!!

He attacked the zone well today, unfortunately the zone survived all attacks.

We went to a show last night that was a parody of the Johnny Carson era of the Tonight Show. I think that you and John would have liked it.


Carnac: Parodies.
Ed: A topical answer, if nothing else, o Wise One.
Carnac: A topical prescription may be needed for this rash of banality.
Ed: My apologies, o Seer of Seers.
Carnac: [pause] So, any curiosity what the question might be?
Ed: Sorry. Parodies. Open the envelope, please.
Carnac: Other than singing, what is Dolly Parton best known for?

We'll have a cure in no time at this rate.

The Chicago Symphony Presents:

The Music of Slim Whitman and James Gandolfini. Hear everythingt from "Don't stop Believing" to "Indian Love Call" to "Woke Up this Morning" to "Cattle Call" under the direction of Riccardo Muti.


In honor of Gandolfini, the program ends suddenly in the middle of one of the songs.

Hernandez pitching = chinese water torture


Yes, speaking of parody, this game and the last one had minor league pitchers parodying what they think major leaguers do. 'Tain't funny.

I had forgotten all about Pedro Hernandez. I'm disappointed at the reminder.

Let's give Hernandez credit - he's missing bats today.

Misread and saw "taters all". Hoping this applies just to the Twins batters.

No amount of drinking will erase that 2/3 of an inning. I will carry it with me like some horrific bus crash on the evening news.

Crash Davis is on the Indians broadcast. Looks like he could still play AAA.
