    Who knows what we will get tonight. Night game after a red eye flight.

    Is Lucy place-holding the football again?

    Saw in the SF paper that Bumgarner attributes his recent success to throwing first pitch strikes.

    I wish I had a good feeling going into tonight’s game. I get the feeling that Vargas could have used a couple rehab starts to get back in his groove. I don’t think he’s got a lot of stamina right now (and with good reason), and I hope with a fresh bullpen Ned won’t leave him out there too long.

    I like the way Vargas is throwing so far, despite a little scare that wasn’t his fault.

    And I like the way Butler is swinging. Nice to see Billy heat up, we sorely need it.

    Haven’t got to post that much this year.

    Bumgarner is a bit of a cry baby out there, eh?

    To be fair, Danley’s strike zone has been a bit inconsistent.

    Toronto leads Detroit 4-2 in the 5th.

    Vargas has already racked up a lot of pitches. Doing well though.

    Billy Butler is now seventh in Royals history with 125 home runs, passing Danny Tartabull. John Mayberry is sixth at 143.

    Yes, if he can get through five with a lead I’ll be very happy. Anything more than that is gravy.

    Nice at bat by Moose. That should push the average back above .200.

    Wow, Friday night…school restarting soon…yet there are more contributors here tonight than I would have anticipated. By the way, has anyone seen Guardians of the Galaxy and what did you think?

    I’ve been itching to see it. Planning to do so some time this weekend.
