    In all seriousness, I do feel sorry for Nishioka, but if you can't cut it, you can't cut it...
    Plouffe should be back by Friday, so it's likely Nishioka won't have to endure that.

    Nicely done!

    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    I expect Plouffe to be back but I'll admit that I was a little disheartened by his comments last night about how much the thumb still hurts.

    This is my last bash of Nishioka for the day...Having Nishi at 2B makes Dozier look like a gold glover at SS. Just sayin!

    EDIT: And one more thing, I would have been lying if I said I didn't expect Nishi to ground into a double play there...guess I was wrong!

    Makes Dozier look like a deity with better defense than Ozzie Smith might be more like it...

    Did anyone catch Duesnsing resorting to Primal Scream Therapy into his mitt at the end of the 6th?

    I think that was the moment that Bert broke his silence, mentioning in the top of the 7th that he had to defend the pitchers and state what the score "really" was.

    Looks like I missed a "good" one.

    That usually happens when they are coming back from their rest and rehab too...
