    Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in...

    I have to say that these games are all very close - they are figuring out how to compete despite the rube goldberg roster

    Oh well...

    Back to a 3 run lead.

    But i like the outfield assist at second... on a force out. (is that the dark side of the force out?)

    Gutsy performance by Swarzie. The balls just weren't finding the gloves.

    A real center fielder probably makes that catch, but probably doesn't make that quick throw.

    You know, Kubel looks amazing in the outfield by comparison to everybody else that's gone out there. Silly team, they thought he'd be the DH out of spring.

    Nice grab by Kubel reminds us that he's their best defensive outfielder at the moment.

    One of the reports stated Kubel has been requiring heavy leg stretching by the trainers before every game. It must be working

    Do you make these up for your wife? You know laundry, house cleaning, cooking type checklists.

    No... She makes them up for me.

    Here's mine that she posted on the fridge.

    1. Hang up towel after showering.
    2. Quit spilling food on your shirt.
    3. Knock on the bathroom door before you come charging in.
    4. Eat Healthy... No more food that tastes good.
    5. Listen attentively... I shouldn't have to repeat things.
    6. Mow the lawn before it rains.
    7. Quit trying to be funny... Nobody gets your jokes.
    8. Close the door quietly... The whole house shakes when you close it.
    9. Quit referring to me as your ball and chain.
    10. Make more Money!!!

    After praising Santana, Dick spouts the heretical notion that maybe a contender should have, like, a regular shortstop or something. Has he announced his retirement?
