interesting. We have both TPJ and Callaspo in the lineup, and we have both Gathright and DeJesus in the lineup. Day off (or afternoon off) for Grud and Guillen.

I'll have the lineups updated when I get home at 5

How did Dejesus not score on that double by Teahen?

From the radio, the 3rd base coach decided to not take any chances at all. probably makes sense, down 6 runs, and there's no outs, it would take a REALLY crappy outing from the next 3 hitters not to bring him home.

Don't worry guys, you get to face my struggling Jays this weekend.

Kansas City is the team that teams break out of a funk against.

C.C. Sabathia started off pretty crappy this year... then he faced the Royals.

The Indians were close to last in most major offensive categories...until they faced the Royals.

I believe Oakland had scored only 7 runs in the previous 5 games combined before they faced the Royals... but then they faced the Royals.

I wouldn't bet on the Jays continuing to struggle after this weekend.

Mike Barnett never should've been brought back, that dude needs to be fired. Its not like we are getting good raps and lining out to guys, we are striking out the friggin' side. Guillen gets a lead of double and the next 3 guys strike out. Unbelievalbe in a very believable, almost predictable kind of way.
