    There are currently 13 pitchers with more RBI than Florimon. What this has to do with your comment, I do not know.

    It would give just cause to double switch your current DH

    GCTF: Nevermind who this is... Gibson has 13 flyball outs... You think he's a sinker baller and he gave up 13 fly ball outs.

    Gardy: I know... That was weird... I should played Florimon in the Outfield.

    Sundusky is much better than something routine like Paris or Epcot.

    Did you get a nice view of those two huge smokestacks pouring smoke out of them 24/7.

    Thankfully not. It was dark when we rolled in and dark when we rolled out.
