The Vegetable Mojo Strikes Back

The sweetest abbreviations in the world for me?

"Arroyo: 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 H".

Mmmmmm. All hail to the String Bean.

And also all hail to the Curt, who since the Inning That Shall Not Be Named, has done pretty well for himself.

And weirdly enough, I have a sense of security going into today, knowing Boomer is on the mound. He has worked his way into my black, shriveled little heart.

Finally, welcome back, The Outifelder Formerly Known As Kristen's Chew Toy (AKA Hyyyyyyyyyzzzzzduuuuuuu), bienvenue to Tony Graffanino and his .298 BA, and *sniff* farewell to Alan Embree. Your name might well have turned into Alan "Uh-Oh" Embree in my house, but that doesn't mean l won't miss you. ( I will not, however, miss the two-run homers.)
