Exactly. As soon as JR saw them, he stuttered, "Humma, humma, humma"...

And that's where the colloquialism "hummer" came from.

It's true, it's true......

You don't learn this stuff in the NFHS, Eofficials or NASO websites, folks.

Tigers aren't quite good 'nuff to beat the Twins. Lost 3 one-run games in a row in Detroit. I wonder why Detroit uses a .217 designated hitter.

You get what you pay for. What do you expect for $14 mil a year?

For that kinda money, they pretty much have to play him. And he's all yours next year for the same salary too.

He's old and oft injured, Mick. And he just might have passed his "best by" date.

More the merrier

Leyland and Carlos Guillen , the Tigers' lone All-Star, will fly on a private plane chartered by owner Mike Ilitch to New York for the All-Star Game.
They will be accompanied by Twins All-Stars Joe Nathan , Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau , so they'll have a hassle-free trip to the event.
"We might go drop Morneau off somewhere," Leyland joked.
Leyland had the flight arranged by Ilitch before the All-Star roster was announced.
Guillen and the Twins players were added to the flight, after Leyland talked to Ilitch and Twins manager Rod Gardenhire .
"I just asked (Gardenhire and Ilitch) if (the Twins players) could ride along," Leyland said.

I am pretty sure the Giants had to enter into a contact with the City of San Francisco to retain at least one over paid, under performing player named "Barry" on their payroll.
