    1. One significant difference. 2003 Ryan: 6 walks 12 Ks (still better than his nearly 3:1 ratio in his short career). Parmelee: 8 walks, 6 Ks. When no-name rookies come up, pitchers just challenge them. When they show they can hit that, pitchers see if they'll chase. Ryan's K rate just kept getting worse. Parmelee has shown good patience, like when he got ahead 3-0 today before hitting a two-run single.

  1. Good time for Dinkleman to hit something besides a single, here. Or he'll take a walk as I'm typing, either way works for me.

    1. Any time you can move the Dink to the outfield and bring Tolbert into the game, it's a win-win for Gardy.

  2. I see Tolbert's BA is in danger of going over .200. Whew, safe for at least a few more plate appearances.

        1. My first one never cried, and the second one was kind of a pain until she was about a year old. My sister? A pain going on twenty years, but she stopped crying 18 years ago.

          1. Our third was great as an infant. She'd cry until she got your attention, and then once it was clear you were doing something, she'd give you a chance to get it right. She'd probably do the same thing now at 18 months, but she's unreasonable. I can't hold her all the time, I can't never wash her hair*, I can't let her stay up in my lap reading the book over and over**.

            *She loves baths but hates getting her hair washed. It's not getting her hair wet that she dislikes, she's fine splashing it to get it wet, or letting me spray it with squirty toys, but anything that's clearly washing, and my wife wonders if I'm torturing her. "Did you get soap in her eyes?" No, but I let her see that I grabbed the water cup.

            **I read it through once, but then she wants to page through it, study the pictures, feel the paper or cardboard. I try to limit her to once or twice through, but I'm sure she could make it to an hour if I let her.

      1. This is a very Important contribution. Once you can get the kid to bed, without boobs, you are on your way to better nights.

        1. I hope I can remember what I did, because she was screaming bloody murder, then she was passed out on my chest.
