  1. I hope they teach Brett Gardner how to send his flying bat into opposing team's dugout before making him the Yankees starting center fielder next year.
    His bat missed Carl our Saviour three times in a roll but almost cracked Phil Hughes' rib cage again. You can't keep toying with Baseball God.
