5. Please enjoy this five sentence game summary written by a computer.
6. Lars Anderson did not get a hit, but he did walk. Anderson's leading the International League in walks. 'Over the Monster' feels that he should be more aggressive and that he is perhaps fizzling. If it were me, and my boss told me to work on my plate discipline, I might say, "Fine, fuck you! I won't swing at ANYTHING any more! Ah ha ha haaah haha!!! HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW??" I don't always take criticism well.
Damn, there's some Kyle Weiland buzz this morning.
Tonight! Andrew Miller v Durham Bulls right Jay Buente. I hope Darnell McDonald hits a home run.
