    Didn't he sign for like half a million dollars the year we also got Sano?

    Bernardino is reporting now that Pinto is heading to the DL from Rochester, stiff hip.

    They're going to really work that pitch count up on Weaver, get into the bullpen.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

    Don't know what his bonus was but he signed the same year as Sano and Kepler.

    Polanco signed for "only" $750,000 and didn't experience the type of immediate success that his uber-talented fellow countryman did.

    Per Nick Nelson on:

    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Isn't defense supposed to be his strong suit?

    I know piling on Florimon is fun and all... But... Escobar also wheeled away because he couldn't see it either.

    The Sun can happen to anyone.

    Now... as for his hitting. I don't think the sun is in his eyes at the plate.

    That's true, apologies to Florimon for the unfair shot about his defense.

    At the rate we are going, it is going to be a perfect game sadly.

    Yeah... But Some Cheap Sunglasses wouldn't have been a bad idea either.

    Should have gone shopping with Parmelee:

    But I'm betting "cheap" isn't in their vocabulary.

    Nolasco should have bought him a pair...could have saved him an RBI ground rule double.

    Ooh, Florimon may actually dip below .100 today. That's just depressing. You would think he could bunt and bat .100. I bet most pitchers have better BA than that.
