    I'm getting bored with the repetition, so I'm not going to mention that J(O and 1) again took the fat fastball for strike 1, and then waved at two tough curveballs...jeez.

    Ray of hope: Yankee announcers said Joe was working on pulling the ball in batting practice

    Pinto .000 last night + Twins loss = no Pinto for a week. Would he even get to catch at all if Deduno didn't want him as his personal catcher? Rapidly approaching the point of hoping for a massive Zukesie slump that forces Gardy's hand. Oh well. Maybe Pinto gets a start in the doubleheader after the rainout.

    Could the rain be fortuitous for us?

    It's a race to see whether El Nino or El Nuno blows away the Twins first...

    Arcia. That would have been a wow vs. a RHP, but vs. a lefty that's really impressive.

    And the answer is yes, Derek, you stayed a year too long.

    You should put a "6." In front of this.

    Actually... If Snepp or Labombo or anyone could find a GIF for Terry Ryan doing some acting... It would probably be the greatest post ever!!!

    I haven't heard anything about Deduno wanting Pinto as his catcher, I can't imagine any pitcher would choose Pinto over Suzuki to call his game at this point. Gardy likes Pinto catching Deduno because he has to stay sharp every pitch instead of losing focus and getting complacent. I like Pinto's home runs, but he's not hitting for a high average or driving in runs. Bases loaded yesterday, no one out, and he taps out to the pitcher. Take advantage of chances when they are given, and you earn your time. I can't believe you'd want Suzuki to slump? But I guess I wanted them to sign Suzuki to start with since I expected Pinto to be at AAA to start the year, and I fully expect him and Pinto to be our catchers for another couple years after this so I don't look at Suzuki as "not part of our future" that people are hanging their hats on.
