I find it kind of amusing to read how Redmond is preparing himself for utilizing the replay option. Considering how inept he was last year in simply using his pinch hitters properly, this whole replay thing is frightening to anticipate. Let's just ay that planning ahead is not one of Red's stronger point and leave it at that.

Hey, Lou, you wanted more subject matter from Clark. You are certainly getting that and then some. I'm lovin' it.

I didn't know the Marlins had acquired Josh Spence. This lefty Aussie can impress during ST if he is given an opportunity.

Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi Oi Oi !
