    Seems logical, but I'm not an 80 year old watching my team choke away an August like I choke down Marlboro's, so my logic probably doesn't matter.
    I've been saying for a month that something is wrong with him. And I don't know how many times it takes for Marlboro Jimmy to get it through his ****ing head that YOU DON'T BRING HIM IN FOR LONGER THAN 1 INNING.

      Now we wait on the draft picks. According to the Detroit News resident Tiger writer that writes like a woman, don't expect the 4th rounder to sign, but the other 3 out there should. We've got 59 minutes to go.

        We didn't sign the 4th rounder, but we did get all the other top-10 picks. Nick Castellanos, the first sandwich pick, did reach an agreement, but we're waiting on whether he agreed to the deal before the midnight deadline.

          With Verlander pitching tonight, I'm sure we'll be in for another exciting 3-1 loss. Could the team give him some support just once?

            He better go 9. Valverde is done for a day or two, and Coke and Perry are just about used up for a couple days as well. And God help us if Verlander gets shelled, because we've got Bonderman and Porcello going the next two days.

              I've got this crazy formula, but I'm not sure if it will work.

              1. Put Valverde in for only the ninth like it was back when he was shutdown and it didn't take him 30 extra pitches to get one more out.

              Yes, this formula only has one step, but while Todd Jones was the master of creating situations and getting out of them, Valverde is not.

                Last night during the game, they specifically mentioned that they'd seen Todd Jones earlier in the day. I knew everything was going to be all right then. Papa Grande has seen the light and is reading from the Todd Jones Save Manual. Praise the Lord!

                Also, I think Captain Intangibles deserves more credit for hitting into the greatest bases loaded game-ending double play in the Yankees' illustrious history.

                  Quit making sense.

                            Our ace thinks he needs to throw about 162 pitches to get through 5 innings every ****ing outing, and this is what we get as a result.
