About Me: I'm roughly about 112 years old, depending on my mood at the time in question.
I live in the rain state...which explains my winter moods.
Pro pitcher Bill Lee...minus the drugs.
...and I NEVER show ALL my cards.

Wow. I didn't know Barnes could man RF.

''I find it remarkable that few are factoring in the concussion in Holt's 2nd half "slump."
That's because the concussion is no longer limited to Holt.

Perhaps someone can explain to me how MLB can take measures on one hand to 'speed up the game' - and then put it on life support by allowing for challenges to be made on plays that don't impact the ga more »

In response to slomag's comment: I insist that if you make a statement like this you should be able to provide a reasonable path to your conclusion. We're 10-6 with Betts leading off. At least one o more »

One observation I had during the game: When Farrell elected to have Breslow face Cabrera, a switch hitter, with the bags juiced, I said he's got no business being in there. That's Orgando's hitter. I more »

No, that wasn't Holt who hit that dinger. He only hits singles - and cheap ones at that. It was an impostor. I think it had something to do with that guy in the batman cape they kept showing. Although more »

For me, it was Mookie on Jupiter and JBJ building a space station.

This thread had much more dimension when it was initially left up to our imagination.
The humor was priceless.

If Masty was making what Holt is making, would you still sustain UR Masterson bias?

A sign of things to come for Orgando. He has closer stuff and steel to match.
Take a lesson Mujida.
If his health holds, he'll be moving up the food chain fast.

Holt vs. team stats -
OBP - 1st.
OPS - 1st.
Slugging - 2nd.
UR slipping Holt!!

I underestimated the sound they had (Little Feat). And the fact that they weren't as mainstream plays into recognition.
You must be having a ball today! A Sox win would cap it, eh?
