See? That's the offensive minded thinking I just never get. I guess I'm just defensive.

And you're offensive.

I think it's hitting related. When you thrown in the errors, it's just an added feature.

No, I just have this damned ability to read Manny Acta's mind. Actually, he is about the easiest manager to figure out.

can't vote on pitchers

It is ridiculous, but the all-star game is pretty much worthless overall, so I don't really care.  I remember reading a few statistical studies in college that showed that fan participation in the voting process actually had a very positive effect on viewership of the actual all-star game.  So, for that reason alone it is worth it for MLB to allow fans to vote.

Between you and the Great Falls Little League, Dukes might get a few thousand votes.  ;)

Kelly Johnson is batting .240 on the season but he is 7/11 (.636) against the Nats.

Good job by Lannan that inning, they are biting at his curveball, which is a very good sign.

Absolutely stupid not to have Kearns in the lineup everyday.  He is seeing the ball incredibly right now, and easily our best outfielder.
