Watson was warm. Why the hell warm him up if not to face fat-ass ... okay, you know who I mean.


Radio guys said that lefties are hitting 100 points higher against Watson than righties.

He didn't put the ball in play......

Yeah, on a bunt attempt. He wasn't swinging. Had he been swinging and missed, we at least would still have runners on the corners.

He also struck out with a runner on second after he failed on the suicide.

And, like I said, had he been swinging away at the outset and struck out, we would at least still have runners on the corners.

Maybe I should be after-the-fact critical of Hurdle for not trying a suicide with McGehee in the ninth. He didn't get the run in by swinging away .... hate it when that happens.

That game involves a huge pitching advantage ...

I am just wondering if Verlander can stand up to the challenge, knowing that he is the 2nd best SP'er in the game. :D

P.S. 10-7 in interleague this season.

Craft one at captainjollyroger.com, right click the address, and post it as a photo.

The gif function works for photo pasting.
