Singleton in there. Let’s hope we catch some lightning in the bottle with him. Longshot I know but confidence is a beautiful, performance tonic for hitters and his recent run at Sugarland along with his great AB two nights ago ought to have that gauge pretty well topped off!

I also hope that Singleton lights up the bigs, but if you’ve done any homework at all, you’ll know that him raking in AAA hasn’t translated at all to MLB success.

I understand which is why I said it’s a longshot. Good news is we don’t need him to light it up to make a difference. Abreu’s OPS+ is currently sitting at 75.

Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 5pm, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 5pm. Cloudy, with a high near 78. South wind 6 to 9 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

What’s this rainfall thing you speak of?

It’s when water falls from the sky. Damnedest thing you’ve ever seen.

I’ll believe that when I see it

“Rain” is an invented construct of The Man to give false hope.

Current batch of showers moving through will be done in 5 minutes.

Sounds dreadful, I’m very against this.

Traveler: Looks like rain.
Old-timer: Hope so. Not so much for me as for the boy here. I’ve seen rain.

Chas scratched. Dubon in LF.

I’m gonna go see what Snopes has to say about this.


I wonder how many other teams offered him an contract?

(IMHO) Like Verlander’s return, there is some “rightness” about Singleton - the prodical son - returning to the 'Stros.

My hunch is that several folks are rooting for him, despite all logic…

This Orioles team is playing some defense.


Hot shot nicely picked robs Jose.

Yordan lobbed a single to RF but nothing else in the 1st.
