If I didn't know who the voices were, I would have told you that the first guys were the Royals announcers and that Denny was a part of the Twins team.

listen to his call on this and tell me he shouldn't be put out to pasture:

You're entitled to your opinion, I simply disagree with it. I prefer an announcer that doesn't feel the need to scream every other word.

Maybe it's just because of who it is though. I watched about two innings of a Mariners-Dodgers game a week or so ago and Vin Scully seemed like the babbling old man jumping back and forth between stories that had no real tie ins to the game that was going on. I couldn't bear to listen to it.

Yeah I watched some other clips where Physioc was on with Denny and getting excited – that's fine. I just want somebody to get excited along with me.

how long is the appeal process usually?

After looking up the very few times a similar incident went all the way to the arbitrator, it looks like about 2-4 weeks.

A lot of times what has happened when it didn't go all the way is either the player was just strategically appealing to delay until a better time to serve and they drop the appeal, or MLB sometimes goes to the player and offers to lower the penalty if they drop the appeal.

So, maybe Herrera drops it when Holland is ready to go, or maybe in a few days MLB will offer to reduce it to 3 days and he'll take it.

4 games. But he's an every day player ... so that's probably equivalent to like 6 games for a reliever.

And with bases loaded he would have seen another one provided the pitcher could throw back-back strikes which he was having trouble doing.

Vargas throwing batting practice

Vargy still pitching like shit. Just like he did all spring, and towards the end of the year in 2014. We need him to rebound until Medlin can take over.

Vargas hates pitching with the lead.

I think that's the 3rd if not the 4th consecutive lead that Vargas has managed to fuck off within 1-2 innings of getting the lead

He's given up 1 run through 4.

too bad we didn't bench him for Colon like you suggested, eh?

in seriousness, what happened was simple:

He always had the talent, he just kept getting into his own head. Then, in the postseason, everyone went back to .000 and he just went and played and led our team to a WS while becoming the toast of the town and tasting his first real professional success...

and he parlayed that into a good spring where he learned how to beat the shift ... and Ned rewarded him with batting him 2nd ...

and now look

which is why Al is dead wrong about confidence and swagger not helping (a lot) in baseball

there wasn't a pitcher in the world last year that cared about who was hitting behind Mike Moustakas ... he was essentially an automatic out

if he was in the NL and hit in front of the pitcher, he probably still would have gotten pitches to hit with RISP and 2 outs ... that's how terrible Moose was last year
