    Here's the WebMD link to possible concussion. We get good advice from them and the co-pay is very low.

    Yeah, Esco-bear isn't due up for several more batters.

    Plouffe's not slow and it wasn't hit hard. But I understand Dozier doesn't have time to assess that. Still he had no chance of scoring there.

    It might be better to ask that question in the emergency room.

    Oh yeah, no problem. My coaches always said that it was just getting your bell rung.

    What?

    If you blacked out at all you should go to ER or urgent care.

    Well of course he didn't have a chance, but I also think it was a contact play, which means it's not his decision to make, really.

    Jamey Carroll pinch ran for Plouffe one time last season. That's all I need to know.

    Which is why the contact play is perhaps the dumbest play in all of sports.

    I'm not an expert... But... Watch for any dizziness or if you throw up in the hallway unintentionally. You should see a doctor to be sure.

    If you see ellipses any where near my posts... You are doing fine.

    In other news, Perkins is kind of a good pitcher.

    Nice win and a fun game thread.

    diehard, please don't stubbornly refuse to go to the ER if you feel more symptoms.

    The Indians would have scored -4 runs if Florimon was at short.
