    Just a hunch, but somewhere = Rochester.

    I have been watching the game, but not checking out TD. Any comment on Diaz as the home plate ump? To me, he has been as good any anybody calling balls and strikes. Good zone, good consistency.

    No sure what anybody batting against R.J. shows.


    At least Hicks is taking more walks this year. I guess that would be the positive from him so far.

    Calling a bit of a low zone, but very consistent which is always nice to see.

    What are our options at ss? Bremer just mentioned a guy we just picked up recently but he was playing OF today in Rochester...missed his name...anyway who can plug into short? Dozier eventually going back since we have a 2nd baseman now under suspension..?

    There will be some plays that Florimon makes that Nunez has no shot at.

    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)

    Do you mean the routine grounder to end the inning?

    Yes, vs. knuckleball. Single and a walk in 3 PA's. Plus the universe didn't implode as predicted elsewhere.
