You guys who love to second guess about the bullpen decisions should lay it in the line now. Who works the last three?

I would have said: Corbin for the 7th.

But it's been done.

He looked good.

Assume it will be Harvey and Finnegan for the last two of this inning goes ok.

With Corbin at 74 pitches, I'd kind of rather second guess the decision to go to the bullpen in the first place.
Certainly. 

Saving Patrick for the trade deadline?  :hysterical:

Germans, Poles, Danes, Dutch, Flemings. I had some at Waterloo, which is technically in French-speaking Belgium, so I guess Walloons as well. And the Scots, famously, will fry anything.

One year contract. If he plays too good the Lerners won’t want to pay him but another team might. 

Nice play there.

I spent a few years working for a company with a global HQ just outside Brussels, in Terhulpen / La Hulpe. Never saw fried meatballs.

Trade him. Minnesota will be looking. Yankees might need one too.

Jeimar! Come on Mike, sign Jeimer for another season or two. He makes $5 million this season. He is 29. Offer him $8-10 million for two more seasons. Let Jeimer be the bridge to House.

Look at the numbers. I just did. Roy was more of a .260 - 270 hitter. I remember him hitting .290, but he did do that all the time. Steady defense. Good singles hitter.

I spent a few years working for a company with a global HQ just outside Brussels, in Terhulpen / La Hulpe. Never saw fried meatballs.
My firm had an office on the Rue du Luxembourg / Luxemburgstraat in downtown Brussels.

The German/Danish frikadelle version is basically flattened and pan-fried. I suppose it's the predecessor of the hamburger. The version I most remember from Belgium was more a meat cylinder than a ball, so sausage-shaped, and breaded and deep-fried.
