    "We" aren't.

    They are playing a game that requires a split second to see, recognize, swing at and make contact with a baseball. Sometimes it looks pretty hard. 'Cuz it is.

    I have no earthly idea what a checked swing is and what is actually a swing.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    My favorite Thom and Chris exchange was from a game against the Diamondbacks (I think) last year.

    Thom: "first pitch swinging...grounder to first. UNBELIEVABLE! It was his first major league at bat too!"

    Chris: "He's gonna fit right in on this team."
