Danny Salazar Night in the Americas
The Purpose of This Post
The purpose of this post is to announce — such that residents of the Americas (plural) be made aware — to announce that today is Danny Salazar Night in all their respective countries.

Regarding Danny Salzar Night in America, What That Entails
What Danny Salazar Night in the Americas mostly entails is young and hard-throwing right-hander Danny Salazar making a start for Cleveland — in this case, tonight (Monday) at 10:05pm ET against the Los Angeles Angels.

One of the Americas, An Example of It
North. One example of an America is North America.

Another of the Americas, An Example of It
South. A second example of an America is South America.

Not Really an America, Probably
Middle. Middle America is indeed a term that is often employed to describe a certain part of North America — or to describe the cultural values of a certain socioeconomic group within the United States, specifically — but it’s not a discrete land mass, as appears to be the case with continents, generally.

Danny Salazar’s Split-Change, An Example of It
Here’s an example of Danny Salazar’s split-changeup from his most recent start — in this case, at 87 mph for a swinging strike three to Minnesota’s Clete Thomas, after a pair of fastballs at 97 and 96 mph, respectively:

Salazar Thomas CH SS K High

Promotion Watch 2013: Xander Bogaerts
In what is the first, and potentially last ever, edition of Promotion Watch 2013, one finds, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, that celebrated Boston shortstop/third-base prospect Xander Bogaerts is likely to be called up by the club on Monday. The 20-year-old Bogaerts appeared second overall on Marc Hulet’s midseason top-50 prospect list.

“It goes to eleven.”
Can’t you make just make ten higher?
It goes to eleven. It’s one nerdier.

Does Danny fill the void in your heart that Corey left?

Because I still feel empty inside ;(

That void will never be filled. Learn to embrace the emptiness. Reflect on how if feels. Let it remind you that you, like Corey, are vulnerable. Take that lesson and grow stronger – acknowledge your weaknesses but also your strengths. When Kluber returns, the Society will need you. And you will be ready, better than ever.

Indians just took a crap on Danny Salazar Night….
Pushed his start back indefinately
That will teach me to start him this week in fantasy for a presumed 2 start week.

CURSES!!!

Can you just name your daily notes after the Tigers’ starting five so they get injured?

Salazar’s start has been pushed back by a day, so this evening is now Zach McAllister Night in America.

On the plus side, Carson can run another gif of Danny making someone look foolish tomorrow.

Zach McAllister pitching at night in America does not mean it’s Zach McAllister Night in America.

It’s not destined to be a network series, but TNT is thinking about picking it up.

It’s unlikely. McAllister is trying to get more money and TNT is refusing. That’s why we are seeing so many “McAllister doesn’t need more money” ads and “At least McAllister is only a millionaire instead of a billionaire” ads. It’s sickening really.
