I often hark back to something Mrs. Dan P told me about her youth. Her dad would talk to her about this or the other thing to keep communications connected with her as a normal teen girl (crazy with hormones, of course).

Dusty – Hey, OG What Are You Thinking?

Brandon Bielak had barely joined the club as a replacement for Urquidy when he was thrust into the first inning of Tuesday’s win over the Giants in place of Luis Garcia, who had discomfort in his elbow.
