    I doubt they'll double attendance with just a few hours notice

    I have faith that he'll be in tonight's lineup, but can you imagine the reaction if he wasn't.

    I can’t wait to see what the Singing Skeleton does in his first game.

    Perhaps ever.

    Bruce, Kearns, and Dunn were big, but this has the feeling of expectancy. Fate.

    I actually cancelled on a buddy so I can stay home and watch the game on mlb.tv tonight. Biggest call up since Jay Bruce.

    For some, anything less than him hitting a home run that wins a Toyota pickup for somebody, would be a disappointment. I just want to see him do a couple of things, at bat or in the field, that show the world why we’re so excited here.

    Maybe this is just me but I feel like people will inevitably be disappointed in the Singing Skeleton as soon as he struggles. And, while being the first to log this precog crime is a well-earned feather in my cap, I can’t help but also feel pre-disappointed when I pre-think about how people will prematurely pre-criticize the Singing Skeleton.

    I'm expecting a slow start. He's started slow at every level so far. If he comes out like McLain, I'll be surprised.

    4-4, 4 HR's, homer's for the cycle, in order. Walks in his final PA of the day. one unassisted triple play.

    otherwise, bullpen or whatever. I mean he can throw 99 right?
