    There is no adequate argument for this post.

    So, even when he does something you like, you still criticize him

    Bailey looked pretty good getting them out of that mess.

    Just so you know Blitz, the backup catcher as a DH thing...I was only hesitant to do it because I wasn't familiar with the DH rules if the fielding catcher got hurt. But once it was explained...I was fine with Mes DH'ing.

    Although you easily could be talking about someone else. But since the world revolves around me, I automatically assume it's about me. *grin*

    Just a couple of beautiful splitters from Bailey.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm relieved to finally hear Blitz weigh in on how he feels about Dusty's nightly decision making. The tension was killing me.

    Question about tonight:

    Which pitcher's statistical correction will rule the night?

    My guess is Homer. Far better track record. Kazmir is about to crack.

    I'm also relieved to know that while they might not agree on which Paula Dean pillow top set to get, that Pete and Kiana will surely end up with some variety of Paul Dean pillow top set.

    Who in hades is Paula Dean, and why should I buy her products?

    That's the real question.

    I don't think I've ever heard someone pronounce Kazmir's name like the Led Zepplin title. LOL.

    Wow, the gold glover almost misplayed that into a triple!
