    Yes! And that's just a warmup for handling the excitement of the comet-blazing-trail-across-total-lunar-eclipse excitement of an AL team executing a double switch.

    That might make Gardy's head explode, best he gets ejected and let Molly handle it.

    I like to take a long meteor shower every morning before getting out and doing stuff.

    Well, when we go off focus it won't be because we're tired...

    TC Bear... His costume has more padding and can better absorb blows.

    Molitor and Steinbach only played in the AL, so they could never understand the intricacies of the double switch. We must rely on Gardy's time with the Mets and Bruno's short time with the Cardinals to survive this week's "strategery". If Gardy gets kicked out, we may inadvertently end up with Herrmann having to pitch and Swarzak in at catcher. It'll be complete anarchy, but we'll know who to blame.

    Plus, TC is a southpaw, "they ought to outlaw southpaws" (Rocky II). And the chicken has to be nearing social security at this point.

    TC shot a T-shirt to me that fell short of the mark, but managed to wrestle it from the bratty nine year old whose head it bounced off of. Will always treasure the memory of the rush that the lottery tickets purchased with the Ebay sale of it brought me.

    That said...



    Judo Bourne chicken ftw. Sorry, TC. Thanks again, though.

    With the day off yesterday and Thursday the could have skipped Correia's start and put him in the pen. He needs to step up.

No need to worry... Kevin Correia is very experienced at the plate. He knows how to walk back to the dugout and has done it a few times.
    Assuming there were some walks in those plate appearances.... so why on earth hasn't Gardy been using KC to pinch hit for Florimon?

    I did my position/persuasive paper in English 101(about 25 years ago) on why we should keep the DH. The feeble attempts to hit or bunt by the pitchers were reason #1. If I wanted to watch that, I'd save the ticket price and go to a jr. high game instead.
