    Well, at least that's a more easily remedied reason for people not thinking I'm funny than just not being funny...

    Pretty much certain - well, at least 99.74% certain - that's the primary cause of my confusion.

    Tito finally challenges what appears to be a totally proper call.

    He was lucky not to break his ankle there.

    There's your reason to bench "Flori", he's lousy at instructing players to slide. Seriously, this isn't the first time Plouffe didn't slide when he should have. I guess he got to the plate fractionally quicker than sliding.

    I would hope that someone talks to Plouffe about that and makes him watch the replay.

    Florimon could legitimately hit .150 this year. No joke.

    Trying to explain announcers to non baseball fans. Said that Vin Scully announcing the play by play of you having sex while you're having sex would actually improve your performance while having sex.

    Maybe I'm drunk but that sounds like the most accurate description of Vin Scully's voice.

    3-3.

    The bats have been impressive, I actually have a feeling that Kubel and Colabello both could stick this year for sure, Colabello, though early seems to be hitting a stride, if the dude mashes that much at AAA, there is no reason why he can't hit against non elit pitchers in the majors!

    The pitching....is a concern, but Nolasco will come around for sure. Can't ask for much more then going .500 on the road, especially when 2 of those 3 wins were against a playoff team!

    Nice to see Hicks get that SF as well in the ninth, was worried he was going to fall into a deadly slump ala last year. Instead he battled back with two strikes and did his job, very very big change over last year.

    Also can definitely get used to Mauer at 1st base, not only is he playing on a Sunday day game (a rarity in the past) but when he did...he was fresh and did well! I bet he hits .340 this year no doubt.
