    As someone who once had a doppio espresso a longe two (2!!!) blocks from where Joey Votto grew up, I applaud this leader board as a spiritual Italian might applaud – languidly yet with style, shirt unbuttoned three notches south of the collar and ready for my Mamma to cook my dinner. Excelsior, Cistulli!

    Carson, when’s your next Schumaker scouting report coming out? He pitched a scoreless inning today (1 K, 2 BB, 1 H), showing us his fastball (89-91 MPH, shaky command), change (good arm-side run), and curve (his worst pitch; resulted in the one hit).

    Technically Liddi is just Italian, not hyphenated with anything. And technically, he’s no longer a Mariner since he was DFA’d last week.

    Jason Grilli will strike your family out with high heat and a wipeout slider. Then he will punch Russell Martin 3 times, and fly home on his griffin.
