Here's the one we're pretty much not gonna win.

Kalish takes a seat a game after he hit his first major league home run, because it's not like he's consistently hit lefties better in the minors or anything. Or will have to face major league lefties on a regular basis. Oh, no, wait a minute...
Meanwhile the Lance Berkman deal is already paying dividends for the
Yankees Red Sox as a BP line drive off his bat to Alex Rodriguez' leg has removed the mirror-kisser from the starting lineup.
