    Intermission music before walkup was Van Morrison's 'Wild Night". Reminds me that his show at the U of M's Northrop was not only the worst live music show I've ever seen, it actually made me pursue a refund.

    And VF's 'Blister in the Sun' shows up in the walkup for... I don't know, Escobar, Florimon, insert random AAAA name here...

    He needs to hit higher than .225. On any contending team he would coming in for defensive replacement.

    I've seen Van stink up the joint more than once. What a crotchety old fart.

    His .350 OBP and .450 SLG say otherwise.

    Is Collabello 2 for his last 20 with 1 RBI? Hope it is just a blip.

    I used to cater on the road for bands. I've seen some bands hundreds of times.

    Quite a game. Also sounds like May had a hell of an outing.

    Did he look like he would rather be having a prostate exam? He performed a song list that seemed designed to simultaneously offend dedicated fans and disappoint the casual ones.

    Don't remember him speaking to the audience. Encore fail, no doubt due to lukewarm applause.

    He looked like he was having a prostate exam. He used to throw a hissy if he saw anyone drinking alcohol too.

    Contending teams don't care about such nerd concerns. An .800 OPS from your above-average defensively 2B? Pass.

    He does have hustle, grit, and dashing good looks going for him though, so I guess he can stick around for a while.
