Would be nice to start Zimm against the righties, but we'll see what happens.

I think it was Larussa who said runners at corners with 2 outs was better than 1st and 2nd with 1 out

[edit: he was wrong]

and the starter is a righty.

I just think that with Avila and Gomes they could be going more offensive

than caddying pitchers.

again, I hate Panera advertising about using clean ingredients.  If they know somebody who doesn't, they have an obligation to rat them out.

Robles with a minimum effort throw from the track that practically hits the bag. Can't complain about his arm strength.

 Never. Snap. Throw. To. Josh. Bell.

Every catch is an adventure in lack of body control.

i tell you, on the 3-2 to Soto, I felt the ump was gonna call that a strike.  It was only a half a foot off the plate.
