Garza's HR/FB rate this year has been way above normal. That tends to just be bad luck. Hopefully it evens out.

Does "Aoki" mean "thorn-in-the-side"? cuz that's what he's been.


That was a pretty good pitch too. I wouldn't think a slap hitter like Aoki to turn on a 96mph fastball up and in under the hands.

i going to assume that it was an extraordinarily tough play and that, even with stewart's superhuman range, it was nearly impossible to come up with. ian's been playing stellar defense and it's his amazing defensive skills along with his unsustainable bad luck that unquestionably justify his presence in the lineup. im certain the official score keeper is to blame.

brett are those "fire the next manager" t-shirts available? honestly, if it werent for sveum and his stupid lineups, the team would.... still be dead last but less infuriating to watch.

I hope you said that with tongue-in-cheek. If not.......I'm lost for words ---"kind" ones that is,

I think Sveum has an ego. His thought process: "Well, if I put out this 'B' squad and succeed I look like a genius, but if we lose, it's ok because no one expected us to win anyway." I can't stand his decision making. I will be curious to see who his replacement is when his contract is up?
