Heh, well, the nice thing about Extra Innings or MLB.TV ... you get a break from the local broadcast from time to time. Although, the time I really, really, really would rather listen to Bert is when I'm forced to listen to Hawk, and can't do nuttin' 'bout that.




Edit: Although, i will NOT be ordering MLB.TV again next year as I just can't stand it over all.

It never ceases to amaze me. Bert Blyleven, who owes his HoF induction to sabermetrics, doesn't know the difference between a PA and an AB

He knows all the unwritten rules, however.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

aww, sheesh ... again ... swing the bat ... just like you can't win the lottery without buying a ticket, you can't get a hit without swinging the bat.

So Florimon's the example you'd like the others to follow?

Well, no, of course not ... but you still aren't going to get a hit when you stand there and let the strikes go by.

Walks are unmanly. Swing the bat.

Each of the three SO victims swung the bat once. Florimon just did his last. At least Clete made contact, with a foul. I guess I should look to him as the beacon of hope, for when he gets another turn.

Maybe Albers can pick up some tips from watching Bartolo Colon and his swing and miss (or look and get rung up) stuff.

6. Think about RB...............RB is entertaining........Has anyone from North Dakota ever been on TV before?.......I don't think RB would make it as big as the Kardashians, but I think he would do just fine.

Our old friend Francisco Liriano had another nice game:

Then the Pirates gave up 3 runs in the 9th and 1 on the 10th to lose 6-5. My biggest fear is they will release/non-tender their "proven closer" who will then sign with the Nats and then be traded to the Twins for Pinto.

I thought maybe the tumble he took caught up with him.


Anyone get the name of the lucky girl?
