Cionel looks good to me. He also looks like Abe Lincoln.

Or Mephistopheles.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

A's at Astros 7/11

He's kind of all over the place.
Not totally surprising. He’s probably got some 747’s flying around in his belly.

Decent debut. Has a live arm for his size. Will be interesting to see how he comes along with more appearances.

Isn’t that a line from Bull Durham?

Harris, do NOT let his runs score.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

You had that premonition too?

I sort of liked what I saw from Perez. His breaking ball seems a little unfocused but I can't imagine how nuts a ML debut must be for anyone.

I like his demeanor on the mound. Also, I couldn't help but notice he throws with his left hand.

Me too. Looking forward to seeing him some more. Was kind of surprised he went back out for a second inning after throwing almost 70 pitches 3 days prior. I was encouraged. I’m sure the fielders like that he worked so quick. If that is what the pitch clock does for you then bring it up from the minors too. I could get used to seeing that pace.

I liked him too. He was so amped up it is a wonder he threw any strikes. I hope he sticks and does not get traded at the deadline.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

That was when I realized you can't watch that movie with your children.
