    Either way, the guy had a great time tonight. It was a lot of fun watching him pump his fists after that Frazier homer, almost like he had hit it himself.

    He's also a pretty darn good bat boy.

    Heck, if the team plays like this when Teddy's there, he needs to be at every game!

    Good for Teddy.
    Not. Cool. Dude.

    I think Teddy is a good luck charm. He should be the batboy everyday.

    The word "retard" literally means "Delay or hold back in terms of progress". I don't find it offensive at all. I'm sick of all this PC stuff. Teddy is retarded, and god bless him. He's a good guy.
    Here I thought there is absolutely no one who thinks for themselves that would use such a term to describe someone born with Downs Syndrome. And then defend its use. Disgraceful.

    Very, very early for this kind of concern.
    He is pretty much the same now as he was in his last 31 games of 2012. That's a total of 47 games. You bet I'm very concerned.
