    I agree 100% -- I don't fault the ump. But it made me feel better to complain.
    It's good to unload that stuff - repressing it only makes it worse.
    Then I will also express my displeasure at Carson not beating the throw at third. That blunder may cost us this game.
    Yes, rather disalacritous of him.

    OK, bases loaded, one out, Mauer coming up - if they get nothing out of this, it is the ultimate tease.

    I liked Florimon when I saw him in ST. He does stand about a head taller than Carroll or Casilla. I tuned in right after his triple so I didn't see him cruise around to third. He may have a power side (RH) and I wonder how he'll hit from the left side. His minor league numbers say he just isn't a major league quality hitter, but if he can field great and hit marginally, well that would be better than Dozier.

    Ugh! That's one of the few bad pitches Diamond has thrown.

    OK, maybe it's time to think about getting him out of there...

    One positive learned so far this weekend is that the Mariners could be a good trading partner, these guys can pitch...but man oh man, do they need hitters ( and we got em).

    I think they might have to recalibrate the computation variables of Range Factor if Pokemon sticks.

    Over/Under on Willingham finishing the season with a sub .250 average?

    Rather, True/False: Willingham finishes the season with a sub .250 average.

    Now try picturing that play in your mind with Nishioka playing short - it isn't a pretty picture!

    It does seem like a good match might exist.

    OK, fast guys at first and second and Mauer up. A double would really hit the spot now, then Perkins can come in and this can be over in time for me to pick up dinner.

    OK, is anybody else a little disappointed with this? I know a walk is usually a good thing, but given the situation wouldn't you rather have Mauer hit as opposed to Willingham? Having him load the bases doesn't do anything if Josh can't get a hit, and he's slumping a bit right now.
