From Elias: Joakim Soria struck out Carlos Santana on three pitches, all called strikes, with the tying run on third base in the Royals' win over the Indians on Tuesday. It was the first time since 2005 that a pitcher recorded a save by striking out a batter on three pitches, none of which the batter swung at, with the tying run on third base. On May 18, 2005 Ron Villone struck out Jason Giambi in that matter to end a Mariners win over the Yankees.
I thought that was pretty cool, even if it came at the expense of me no longer having cuticles since I gnawed them off wondering what the heck is still wrong with Soria since he's seemingly regained his velocity and (DEEP BREATH) hasn't really been worked hard or anything else I wonder if it was the cold since he was blowing on his hands almost like they were on fire or something?
So, I'm hoping that sentence can prompt some Mr. Miyagi-like logic to Soria's season.
What would Mr. Miyagi's most effective training tack be on Kila Ka'aihue?

I don't really have a Japanese accent and was born and raised in Hawaii, too, so that provides a flimsy, yet effective impetus to provide you with inspiration. Now, get out there and flirt with Mendoza, boy! (16 votes)
