“Gleeman and The Geek” #30: Morneau and Mailbag
This week's episode of "Gleeman and The Geek" was recorded at Wild Boar in Hopkins and our beer of choice was Grain Belt Nordeast. Topics included the beginning of spring training, Justin Morneau's discouraging health status quotes, my ongoing car saga, Sean Burroughs' chances of making the team, John Bonnes' marriage advice, Ron Gardenhire's book, the wisdom of carrying three catchers, and a bunch of mailbag questions submitted by listeners.

Lots of Pirates fans had faith Doumers could handle first base. Then they watched him hemorrhage three gazillion runs in one weekend series in Detroit in 2010 and that was pretty much that.
(Exaggeration for effect conceded.)

Holy crap! Bonnes brings up something correct!
A study in the 2012 THT Annual noted that if Gardenhire’s “hook” tendencies continued through 2010 (which would qualify him based on the necessary sample) he’d have the 10th quickest hook on starting pitchers rate in baseball history.
