    Another excellent point!
    Clearly baseball is the best game in the world.

    Two bottom of the barrel teams playing a meaningless makeup game in mid-August in the day time. It does kinda figure.

    Not sure about that. However...

    Dozier has an OPS against RH pitchers of .654.
    He has an OPS against LH pitchers this year of .963 (coming into this game).

    He has an overall OPS of .785 in the last 28 days.

    Better than I had dared hope after April and May.

    I guess even an almost perfect Summer afternoon doesn't do much for a 43-69 team.

    Lead off double... wasted.

    I'm only listening on the radio. Do I actually have anything to be angry about?

    I don't think so. Excellent play by Ramirez. Hard hit, diving stop. Most times thats into left field.

    They just posted the video of the play on gameday. I can't be angry about the play anymore.

    I will, however, continue to be just as angry because I'm stuck at my desk at work.

    You should just make this statement your signature. If you don't, I might as well do it.

    I just watched a replay of Colabello smashing a HR and have to say I love the sound his bat makes when it hits the ball.

    Alex Rios has to be crushed knowing he is missing this epic matchup.

    Yeah, he hung that one up in the zone. I couldn't help but take a swing at that one.

    I love it. It will be interesting to see if he hits that same HR at Target Field. In TF that is a tough shot.
