There really isn't an exercise for the melon.

There are some tribes in the Amazon Rain forest with some experience in that direction however.

David Ortiz was shot and wounded at a Santo Doningo amusement center, his father Leo Ortiz told ESPN Digital.

His father does not immediately know his condition.

Supposedly shot in the leg.

Now they're saying in the back, and went through the abdomen. Scary.

Through surgery, stable, and expected to make a full recovery.

SAVE PAPI!

I hope he's OK--sounds like they are expecting a full recovery.  He's one of those likable guys, that I'd put in the same category with Miggy and Beltre--star players that don't take themselves too seriously and seem to genuinely have fun playing the game.

Time for some optimism:

JaCoby Jones is hitting .359/.407/.679 in his last 87 PA.

Christin Stewart is hitting .347/.422/.500 in his last 83 PA.

Miguel Cabrera is hitting .323/.386/.484 in his last 70 PA.

Niko Goodrum is hitting .289/.337/.494 in his last 89 PA.

And now the pessimism:

Ronny Rodriguez is hitting .135/.154/.243 in his last 78 PA.

Grayson Greiner is hitting .115/.233/.231 in his last 60 PA.

My bet is Rodriguez goes back to AAA when Harrison or Mercer is ready.  How much longer are they going to pretend Greiner is good?

When we did a Tigerfest tour of the visitors clubhouse years ago we walked by the visitors bathroom area, where the stalls are.

 

My friend says "That's where Papi pinches one..."

That's just his sense of humor.  I don't even notice it but I wonder what those around me thought?

sadly, Nick is the image of consistency. I don't think his OPS have moved 15 pt either way since early May.

I came up with the Swagger to Performance ratio and he's still leading that... 

I wanted to name it The Quentin Factor

 

or however you spelled his name?  He still in the league?

They don't even need an IF ready to call up to move RR, they already have more than they need but there is always W Castro as well if they do.

Nick was featured in another athletic article today. He at least admits he outright refused to try first base late last season. 

I think we are supposed to think that’s a positive thing, but it comes off to me as being petty. He also complains in the article about being jerked around to different positions, and appears to deflect blame about his mediocre ceiling to those types of things.

Stupid Dodgers have ruined Cody Bellinger's career by doing the same thing.

/..sigh../

Statistically, he showed improvement his 2nd season at 3rd but either that was sample size luck or he plateaued or regressed in the succeeding seasons. What's a team supposed to do? If you want to keep your job, get better. It's a nonsense argument anyway. If you have the mental stamina to play major league ball you have to be tough enough not to let the glove side of your game effect your bat. Nick doesn't think he's at least the player that Don Kelly was or Niko Goodrum are? They should have been basket cases having to go all over the diamond like that. I hate athletes that whine and/or take themselves so seriously. It's a fricking game you're playing.

reminds me last night, UM relief pitcher Keizer. Guy is in all kinds of trouble, game is on the line, and he's got this ****-eating grin on his face the whole time like there is no-where else in the world he'd rather be. Nick needs a little of that - maybe a lot of that..
