It's a touchy situation, he's below average in my opinion but if the team is winning how do you move him out of the lineup? It's not Janish is a world beater with a bat in his hands. Would they consider making a move for a SS?

Some say Cozart at AAA, but he hasn't hit well in Louisville recently.

They have a lot of talent in the younger minors, but those guys are years away.

So, I guess, at the moment, hard to sya!

I would hope fans near the horn-blowers would politely (or not so politely) as them to stop.

The Vuvuzela is a weird thing. The sound it's supposed to make is what I imagine it would sound like when you shove it down the user's throat. Next time you hear that sound, imagine it...it's fun.
