Great for a pun as "Ballfour' if he has troubles, but it's actually pronounced with a broad 'a' sound--"Bal" as in Bally Amusements--Balfour. Scottish surname.

That's great. If he comes in when I'm there I am gonna heckle him right out of the game.

I love it. We're picking up specific ballplayers with proven talent to fill the obvious holes our championship quest would otherwise suffer. Meantime, the Twins go rifling through their minor league system for hopes and prayers, and Kansas City just whines and acts pitiful.

I love it. I love every minute of it. I hope we bury them.

86 years and waiting -- not one more, dammit.
