    That's 2 hits and 1 walk in his last 25 trips to the plate, with a .250 OPS.
    Huh. I was informed on this very website just a month or so ago that Bruno had turned Butera into a good hitter.

    It's just a minor hiccup, he'll be back to his .500 OPS ways soon enough.

    An empty .500 OPS.

    If that's even possible.

    Man, we've got to do better at the plate - Frankie deserves more run support than he's been getting. Let's hope he can give us a couple more good innings.

    But the Bruno pill only lasts a little while. Butera needs to go back for more.

    This drew a very pronounced smirk out of me.

    Drew must have called Bruno between innings.

    Way to go, Drew. Who said pitchers can't hit?

    If a pitcher drives in a pitcher and no one is watching, does the run count?

    OK, time to get him out of there. It looks like the magic stops after six tonight.

    That's where Butera earns his paycheck. The jog between the plate and the mound.

    Looks like it's sink or swim with Frankie.

    Son of Sal really saved them there, no way that ball is caught without his abilities in situations just like these.


    The verbal slathering Dickbert does over the Butera clan is nauseating.
