    A day off tomorrow....is this P-Flo's "Black Sabbath"?

    Every time he comes to the plate I'm thinking this music for Pedro, Circa 1970:

    For the record, if reports of Nunez' defense are accurate, I'd rather see Florimon flail at the plate than Nunez flail in the field, solely for the simple fact that the Twins have painted themselves into the pitch to contact corner again, and need every grounder converted to an out that they can manage.
    I heard he's already familiar with Sabbath....

    But how can you have two back to back players in the order at this level of futility? But Hicks has to stay on the roster simply because the Twins know they can't go with Clete Mastroianni on a daily basis, soo,,,Flo has to Go.

    Especially if he went yard on 3-0 counts in consecutive at bats after going literally, for real, years at a time without evening swinging at a 3-0.

    Been listening to the Royals announcers, these guys are really terrible lol. Apparently I missed the memo but Vargas is a new left handed Greg Maddux.

    See, the problem is you listen for the baseball. I listen for the inanities.

    Hicks hasn't been that bad IMO. Would be nice to give him a day off vs a RHP twice a month though.

    They have brought up the league vs Vargas at least 5 times already, the dude is 4 innings into his 3rd start.

    Lets See... A Florimon Rock Song.

    I gotta go with the Traveling Wiburys


    Well it's all right... everyday is Judgment Day


    Maybe somewhere down the road aways (End of the Line)
    You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days (End of the Line)
    Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (End of the Line)
    Purple haze


    Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove
    Well it's all right, if you got someone to love
    Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine
    Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line


    Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive (End of the Line)
    I'm glad to be here, happy to be alive (End of the Line)
    It don't matter if you're by my side (End of the Line)
    I'm satisfied

    Only because we only have last year to compare him to..and more importantly...no one waiting in the wings that offers an upgrade.

    How about twice a week with Mastro, now that both Arcia and Willingham are DL'd?
