First Impressions

  • Suarez had a very suave game yesterday.
  • Welcome back, Brian Dozier. We’ve missed you and your hair.
  • Of note, Dozier and Mauer have been swapped in the batting order.
  • Lineup still doesn’t look half-bad without Plouffe.’
  • Santana at short and Fuld in center is the right way to do this for a while.
  • Give ‘em the heater, Ricky.
