Anderson! RRS!

Another day off for Ichiro! And another shake-up in the lineup:

CF-R Gutierrez
3B-L Hannahan
2B-R Lopez
DH-0 Sweeney
RF-R Hall
1B-L Branyan
C-R Johjima
SS-R Wilson
LF-L Saunders

That’s… well, yeah.

    My favorite parts of that game were:

    1) The fat kid in the red hat behind Russel Branyan in the stands giving the “O” face after the swing.

    2) The Asian lady catching the Langerhans home run ball off the bounce after the three frat boys miss it, and right before the A’s fan can get it.

    The A’s are now 3 for 12 in extra innings games. That’s the measure of a bad bullpen.

    Interesting that L’hans is pinch hitting for Griffey here…

    Well, no. Griffey pinch hit for Hannahan. Since Griffey can’t play 3rd, Hall moved there, and Langerhans went out into RF for Hall. So Langerhans was pinch-fielding for Griffey, if anything. It just so happened that spot came up in the order again.

    According to pRAA, the A’s actually have the best bullpen in baseball, while the Mariners have the second worst bullpen. That’s results based analysis for you.

    Gosh, I missed a fine game thread as well as the game!

    I require a *custom-made* cup

    Well, technically, in primates teste size correlates to female promiscuity. In species where the male can be fairly certain about the paternity of his offspring, such as gorillas (where an alpha male leads a troop of females and immature males), the testes size is small. In species where the females freely mate with a variety of males, like Bonobos and, to a somewhat lesser extent, chimps and humans, the teste size is relatively large — a natural result of female choice and sperm competition.

    ok, next time I’m faced with the opportunity, I’m gonna try each of these lines. I’ll let you know how it goes…

    (you may have outdone yourself on that one joser)

    We need a USS Mariner Post Hall of Fame, so that joser post can go right up there next to the gay porn thread.

    Bonobos. Heh.
