    Pedro has moved beyond the strikeout. He is now mastering the art of the reasonably well-hit line drive to the right fielder. I guess that's something anyway.

    Did Gardy tell Gibby to not worry about strikeouts? I mean he has been getting outs so I can't complain. Just think it's strange how low his K numbers are.

    Ah. The result of the play, not of the hitting. (Sorry, got confused there)

    No one covering 3rd sounds vaguely familiar...

    I don't know how accurate gameday is but it seems like Gibson is getting squeezed.

    Gibson is night and day different from last year. In fact, the weak grounders he is causing reminds me of Deduno.

    Any theories about why he is so effective early this year...compared to last?

    I think it's completely ridiculous to be playing games in this weather.

    Um, maybe he is a year further removed from his TJ recovery?

    Reasonable theory, chi. If that is the most significant factor, maybe we get a good game from Pelf in the nightcap too. It's a double TJ day.

    I really have no idea. That's just my guess.

    I'm fairly certain that they wouldn't be playing if Toronto makes another trip here. 60 miles from Target Field, yesterday would have been fine to play. The temperature was in the mid-50s, we didn't get any snow at all and it didn't rain until after 6 PM. It is much colder today, right around freezing, but no precipitation.

    So you're saying they should have put a roof on it?

    I am searching for a spoon caddy in the shape of a worn-out lawn-mowing tee-shirt, which I presume to equate to a woman's collection of shoes.

    I'm assuming Dickey does not throw a slider, so is that his knuckleball that is breaking from left to right? That's some crazy action.

    Edit: I mean right to left

    And be penalized by the ump for too much or too little arc.

    Blyleven wetting himself over a major leaguer making it from first to third on a single to the right side.

    I have a feeling Pinto is gonna stay at DH for awhile.
    A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".
