I thought Gray looked really sharp in the first inning (did he even throw a ball)? But the wheels are coming off now... Need a double play!

Billy Klaus? Expansion Senators drafted him and he hit nothing. Klaus had been pretty useless to be offered in the expansion draft.

Steak hasn't helped this year.  I'm grasping at straws.

I'm having Indian food, which makes we wonder. Have there ever been any South Asian players in the Major Leagues?

There was that movie about the guys the Pirates brought over. But don’t think either made it.

Looks that way.  Slateman was the one so down on him after last year and in spring training. Said he was working on the wrong things.  So he should be the deciding vote.

Gray has seriously brought down his HR rate. From 2.3 per 9 IP to under 1.
