    Never. Gardy's fascination with Suzuki, even as he fades from over-use is beyond aggravating.

    Gardy being Gardy, falling in love with a certain veteran, to that veteran's eventual detriment through overuse and overexposure.
    You've hit on something. If Pinto changes his name to Punto, Gardy will start him every day. He won't be able to help himself. Why has no one suggested this sooner?

    When's the last time we hit a grand slam? We get about one a year, while other teams hit something around four a year. Sorry I don't have any stats, but I think I'm right.

    I wonder if the only reason Pinto ever catches is because Suzuki doesn't want to catch Deduno.

    AKA Collabello, with a bit of icing on the urinal cake from Parm. Ugly. Arcia should help, against righties anyway.

    Edit: Don't get me wrong, great story, will buy his book when it comes out (or at least sit in B&N and speed-read it for free), but man, that didn't pan out...

    Passing a kidney stone is beyond aggravating. Walking 20 miles through a desert without water or clothing is beyond aggravating.

    If playing Suzuki has reached that level? I'm turning the TV off.

    Nah, they put him in the Twins cap bullpen car with an intern behind the wheel. And before anyone becomes angered over them not using public transit, word has it that it's a tri-brid that runs off electric, gas, or Twins Way.
