Uppercut swing?

Is there any other kind?

Yeah, he hung that one up in the zone. I couldn't help but take a swing at that one.

I love it. It will be interesting to see if he hits that same HR at Target Field. In TF that is a tough shot.


Colabello's 6th inning at bat included 6 pitches that were all inner half or farther in. With 4 oppo HRs I will bet he will get pitched in a lot.

A major league hitter will have an answer to that one, won't he? We shall find out. :)

So this would be ok?

Yeah... You're like a cross between Winston Churchill and Cindy Crawford.

That's a good question... But I'm thinking that you will be wanting Winston Churchill's Breasts.

Well, I'll be the gentleman if no one else will - you got Crawford's body and Churchill's brain.

It's best you did it. I wouldn't describe the rest of us as gentlemen.

The alcoholism is probably from Churchill.

A Google Image Search on "Winston Churchill hot" turned up this as the first hit. Not nearly as scary as I expected:

Sorry to bring us back to the game, but I hate the bunt in that situation. In a tie game, fine, but no outs two on...
