Garbage! What is the difference between Stinnett and Fasano?

Fasano is actually a better hitter than Stinnet.

Not sure, but Fasana has got to have a better throwing arm than Kelly too.

Does Fasano catch tonight because Stinnet is slated to catch Wright tonight?

Max didn't you used to be an oft-times catcher before you got married?

Dude why would I let marriage stop a fun thing like that? They don't call me Ted Turner for nothing.

I just hope Jane doesn't release those tapes!

I think Stinnet was striking out 1 every 2.5 times up or something sick like that. I will take garbage that hits the ball. Plus Stinnet is scary looking. That is a factor as well.
