    Well ... he should take a day off. And they need to get Parms in there as more decisions are needing to be made. But we should start a pool as to when Dozier will get a day off.

    If Morales started at 1B today, it would have been 67%

    Actually make that 70% with Deduno

    Oh, that was another thing that was said ... he would primarily DH, especially in the beginning, but that in time, he'll have to get a glove on and play in the field, too ... giving Mauer a day off here and there.

    One of the posters on the ESPN comments page for the Hou-Min game the other day brought up that more than 50% of Houston residents speak Spanish. I didn't bother to point out that that's not inconsistent with more than 50% speaking English, too; didn't want to get banned by them for trolling or bickering or whatever.

    Considering what it's been for the past few seasons, that really is remarkable.

    I hope Parmelee takes advantage of the opportunity. He's been struggling, and I think he can help his cause with a big game today.

    Loses too much in translation. Much like Shakespearean opera - you have to hear it in the original Klingon.
