All of them.
When your friends need you to prove that you're worth a damn.

And then the very best hitters ever, the clutchiest of all cluchters, fail 2/3 of the time in such situations.  I think you're watching the wrong sport.

This could end up like last night where the starter yielded 2 runs early and then shut them down for a quality outing.

Well, I mean, JZ is no Tanner Roark. Could have had JZ's performance at 1/32nd of the cost.

If Harper could succeed 1/3 of the time in the clutch, he'd be worth MVP money.

Taylor has struck out 144 times in this partial season. Not good. Neither is his .236 BA. OPS .664. Even worse. Compare to Stephen Souza, who would have been 4th OF. (Of course, Ross has been important and Turner might be terrific). Souza hitting only .215, with 15 homers although he has had a busted wrist; fewer K's than Taylor, .716 OPS. Neither Souza nor Taylor is MLB-ready, but Souza might be a shade more advanced.

Right now, Taylor hits like Desmond.

Taylor however plays the field really, really, well.

 :-[

Tangueray.    :money:

Not even close to worth the money (Va ABC stores suck) but I didn't buy it for me.   We ran out a couple of weeks ago, and that's her go-to summer drink.   I kept forgetting to stop off in Md on my way home from work, so when I asked about errands she needed me to run today, she said "gin".   So I'm spending my way out of trouble.  Seagrams would have worked for me.   :lol:

Sign Heyward off-season. He'll be expensive...only 25...but probably worth it. Taylor can work to replace Werth in 2017.

Heyward from the Braves ?  Why sign him ?

The protestors are either local or from a short distance away in NC or Norfolk
