    I really didn't want to say Gardy is a genius, but dang, does that guy know his statistically significant SSS (er, is that actually SSSSS), or what?

    Florimonster with a walk, huh? Well, I'll take a leadoff walk any day of the week.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    I cheer loudly every time Pedro draws a walk. It feels like he just hit a home run to me.

    OK, the strikeouts by Mauer are getting a teensy bit alarming.

    No reason to be so modest, Chief....Your own pregame reverse-jinxin' deserves its share of the credit, too!

    More bunting will solve everything.

    If we lose this game 4-5, I'm going to be crabby.

    Dick always wants every hitter to lay down a bunt. This is his WTF? moment of the day.

    A little bit in his defense there is no one over there. If kubel does it enough...teams might stop putting the shift on

    Wow, Hicksie...that swing was uglier than Pinto's throw.

    Yeah, but he's always calling for the bunt. I lost track of the times he's called for a bunt with a slugger hitting and more than one out in an inning.
