    Anyway, i really hope we can make up two runs. Especially now that we're at bat.
    It went off the heel of his glove...he actually jumped to high.

    Okay, a much better inning for Hughsey in the second, but man, these poor starts are getting to me. I'm starting to think Hughes' problem wasn't the dimensions in Yankee Stadium, it's belt high fastballs over the plate. Anybody else wince when he served up that fat pitch to Miggy... I'm stunned it stayed in the park.

    I don't think Pinto's high walk rate is an aberration. You don't often see young power hitters with such an extraordinary ability to lay off breaking pitches out of the zone. At some point Gardy's going to have to protect him with a better hitter behind him...then, those walks are going to become extra base hits as he starts to see more fastballs.

    At least there are some other variables that are making the team watchable. It makes it easier for me to be patient with some pitchers I pray will produce...."At the Major League Level"... Drink.

    I'm liking the way his curve ball has looked in the couple times I've seen it. Big break, and he got a nasty strike two on the first batter.

    I'm with ya, Gibby. My patience level is much higher with the addition of Colabello and Pinto to the lineup, along with the improvement of Plouffe. And fun to see that Kohl Stewart was so dominant last night.

    Agreed, very sharp last two innings, and his breaking ball is the reason. I think the Yanks gave up on him because they didn't think he could command his curve ball...let's hope they were wrong.

    Yep, I'd add Dozier to that list as well. I love that guy.

    I get what Dick is saying about run production via homerun. I just wish he and Bert would elaborate on the importance of the productive out, and how the Twins match up.

    Cool, I love that car. My next door neighbor had one when I was in high school. Mine was a 71 Nova SS.

    Even though he has struck out a lot, Dozier has seen a ton of pitches. He hasn't given away many at-bats. Great approach at the plate, outstanding defense and really nice hair!

    Winning in spite of the refs has always been part of the game. I hate this momentum killing BS.
