Time to face the knuckleballer

Jim Leyland isn’t sure if he buys the whole notion of right-handers doing better against knuckleball pitchers. But he wants to get Ryan Raburn a game today, rather than let him rust while his bat is hot, so he gets a game in left field.

Come on guys – let’s avoid the sweep.

I really hope Dontrelle pitches well today. If not, it could be a long day, especially for Sardinha.

Might want to check out whose pitching for the BoSox there, Beck.

I’ll let it slide….this time!

(J/K) love the Blog.
