Are you sending more guys for him to beat up? - May 24th 2011 - Jays @ Yankees

The title quote (paraphrased) is from the brief cameo of Hawkeye in Thor, but when I heard it over the weekend it reminded me a lot of Bautista. You have to think that catchers or pitchers are looking at each other and their coaches and thinking should we walk him or are we going to send more pitches over the plate for him to crush? And of course to compliment it perfectly is another quote from Hawkeye "You better call it Coulson, I'm starting to root for this guy".

Yesterday with a spot starter on the mound I think our game went about as well as you could want. Today should be a great lefty on lefty battle with CC Sabathia and Ricky Romero clashing on the hill. They are putting together very similar seasons to date but of course Romero doesn't get the fanfare that CC does given the teams locations.
