Is that who that was?
I had to work opening day and tuned in late last night and there was
some guy listening to Welch drone on about situational hitting.
Yeah. Interesting voice to listen to. Hope he has some incite as well.

As a casual season-long exercise, everytime Cabrera has a chance at a
play, lets try to estimate how Janish would have fared in the same
Cabrera was the big bat yesterday but i just dont believe he will
contribute to more runs than he lets in, compared to Janish

Yes Tom, Jay Bruce has a mild bulge around the tummy. Cabrera's poor
defense continues today. Twins knew what they were doing. Early
impression of Drew Stubbs, slow bat so far. One, two is going to kill
this team. Jay Bruce in an early funk, still very vulnerable to down and
away pitch. There going to keep throwing it there until he becomes more
disciplined at the plate.
Gomes walk off gives Reds first win. Cordero does his job and the Cubs
come to town tomorrow.
Tom, why not consider MLB extra innings? The price is kind of steep at
180 for the season but you get 95 percent of the games plus all the
other teams too.
Hope Arroyo is alright after that shot he took. Those things swell up
and hurt a whole lot more the next day.

He certainly didn't look good on the AB I watched on Monday when I
think we had two on and a little mini rally going. He flailed at the
down and away and hesitated on the down and in that he should have
crushed before it.

Not an option on comcast in my area.
I tried to buy it when a flyer came with my bill several years ago.
Lady said "of course" and and I waited for her to flip the switch.
After a whole lotta nothin' we were both surprised to learn that all
packages are not available everywhere.
I had to wait a couple of years for HD to come to town. Worth the
wait though. Probably be a decade before the 3D stuff hits the
I can understand those things, because it requires different equipment
and infrastructure upgrade. I don't understand the MLB package, or
variable package offerings in different areas, though. Just flip
the friggin' switch at the main server and send it down the wire.
I think I'm going to try the "I'm gonna cancel unless you give me the
same price I've been paying for XM ploy." It's worked for a while
now, but if for some reason it doesn't, then I can deal. My oldest
is starting teeball (gawd what did I do to deserve such a hideous
invention), and with the livestock, I have plenty to keep me
occupied when I'm not working. But when I'm lucky enough to work
from home, those 12:35 starts like today sure are nice.
Newest beehives arrive next week, and that takes some time. Been
dealing with a fox taking my ducks. They don't call them sly for
I also usually add a "species" or come up with some new experiment
each spring. I think this year it's going to be Black Soldier Fly
composting. I know this is a foreign and likely nauseating concept
for most of y'all city folk, but FYA http://blacksoldierflyblog.com/
