Glad to see my man M-squared is in there. But what's the over/under that he'll be outta there via double switch by the 4th? Better catch him early before Riggs does him and gets Harris in there. And you know he will.

I like that 2-6 batting order. Who do you pitch around in those five batters? Even Pudge at 7 has been showing some signs of life lately. I think we score eight runs tonight.

And having made that prediction, I'm ready to see us get no-hit for six innings and shut out for nine.

Even if Morse hit 4 Home runs they still would make the double switch. Riggleman is a BOZO

So much more comfortable when the MI rotation is three (Desmond, Gonzalez, Kennedy) instead of four (Desmond, Gonzalez, Guzman, Kennedy), and the OF rotation looks like four (Bernadina, Morgan, Morse, Willingham), instead of 'a cast of thousands'.

AGonz may never prove to be more than a MI backup, and Morse may never be more than a corner OF-1B-PH player, but now is the time to find some truth there. Let them play, and sign Dunn now!
