he really does say "my lord" a lot

"They've been really good," Francona said of Papelbon, Delcarmen and Hansen. "You have Timlin down there to anchor it and I'm sure he's doing a lot of babysitting down there, a lot of teaching."

From
this article about the baby bullpen (+crab) which is not really that remarkable, but if you think I won't link to an article just because it has good Timlin content, you don't know me that well.

In fact, let me quote all the Timlin stuff:

Timlin has helped Delcarmen visualize a game, even if he's not pitching in it, by thinking about what pitch he would throw in a particular situation.

"He's an awesome guy to talk to," Delcarmen said, "gives me a lot of advice."

Most of Timlin's tips are about the mental part of the game, although he can spot flaws in a pitcher's delivery.


Can you imagine Timlin's tips about the mental part of the game? Delightful.

He leans back in his chair, Pap and Delcarmen and Hansen all sitting cross-legged on the floor, staring up in awe. Timlin nods toward Delcarmen and says, "the way you throw a fast ball, I can tell you've never killed a woodland animal for fun. You NEED the batter to see your ability to kill in your eyes." Delcarmen nods excitedly, Timlin promises to take him bow hunting as soon as the season starts. Then he looks at Hansen, "Have you ever slept with an opposing player's wife? Because until you have, my LORD, I don't want to see you even attempt to pitch a game that I'm watching." Then he stares at Pap, nods, and hands him a camo glove of his own. It's a touching moment, really.

Um. Timlin, man. Timlin.

Also,
this bit on Boomer is mostly only useful for the following:

"That needs to happen. He doesn't need to go to Triple-A. That would be great (having him start next week)," Papelbon said. "Watching him throw in these simulated games, he's been able to throw five innings easy. Shoot, if he can give us five innings, that's all we need right now."

Shoot, man, that's all we need.

I have heard tell that Delcarmen calls Timlin "The Mad Tarantula." When prompted as to why, he would only say, "It's a bullpen thing."

I insist someone figure this out and have t-shirts made immediately.

The story behind such a delghtful nickname must be wonderful. Why can't the Herald get an investigative reporter on that? Or NESN-- is Tina Cervasio really that busy?

Either way, I agree-- SOMEONE needs to figure this out.

Interesting homepage. Can I give you a suggestion? I think I’ve got something good in this post. But what if you added a couple hyperlinks to a page that relates to what you’re points of view?
