Welp, so much for even that thin sliver of hope.

I'm beginning to think you go to Target and just hang around and relax on the patio furniture.

I do. I stop by the Starbucks counter first for an ice chai latte, then pick up a magazine I read but don't buy then come home

M Bourn to second on wild pitch by S Deduno
C Santana to second on wild pitch by S Deduno

I am beginning to sense a trend.

RB, you should have been an elementary school teacher.


No doubt... Set these youngsters on the right path.

Today we are gonna talk about Greece. Open your Book to Page 10... As you can see... looking at the map... Greece is surrounded by a lot of water with a lot of islands. If you look at the picture... You see that homes are often built on a hill side with beautiful water below. What the book doesn't tell you... If you visit Greece... They Feed you goat and smash the plates after you eat off of them.

Hey, he's the one making the sexist remarks.


No worries. I always call my therapist at 6:24pm. I am high maintenance.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Remember when a lead-off double used to inspire hope and anticipation?

If you quit sensing it maybe it will go away

A variation that a female friend always liked: if a man says something in a forest and nobody is there to hear him, is he still wrong?


And with that... I can kick off the string of Man Jokes... It's only fair since I did Woman jokes a couple of days ago.

Q: What do you call a man with half a brain?

I want to cry. Just hit the ball. It doesn't matter where even a long foul ball will be okay too.

We gotta stop striking out with a runner on third with less than two outs. We won't be a good baseball team until we do.

We can't rely on Herrmann to bail us out every time.

Actually, they are hitting it - hard. Just need to do it a little more consistently. Ubaldo does not look sharp, the Ks notwithstanding.

At least they didn't try and bunt the run home
