The trifecta for Javier.

1. Being waved on Kearns should-be triple, stays at third.

2. Should have been running on the contact play with defense back, out at home.

3. As they are talking about his bad baserunning, the cameras pan in on him sitting on the bench with his index finger two knuckles deep in the left nostril.

Well, at least we know why he wasn't concentrating on baserunning.

If I could give rep for this, I would. Just thinking of Narron doing a body shot off a young lady while saying, "that's good booze" in that gravelly voice makes me laugh out loud.
