Kevin Goldstein is naming his 2010 all-disappointing team:

Catcher: Tyler Flowers, Chicago White Sox

After hitting .297/.423/.516 across two levels in 2009, Flowers seemed nearly big league-ready, but everything went backward this year. Not only did he scuffle to a .220/.334/.434 mark at Triple-A Charlotte, but his defense, which improved in 2009, went backward again, to the point that many scouts wonder if he could play the position every day in the big leagues. With A.J. Pierzynski hitting free agency in the offseason, the timing of Flowers’ regression couldn’t be any worse.

Flowers: Stats, Splits. A look at his BABIPs shows all his minor league seasons, besides Winter Ball in 2007, had BABIPs higher than .330. In 2009 Flowers had .394 BABIPs in AA and AAA. This year’s BABIP? .287.

Mike Singletary won’t talk about the dad-gum yahoo commercial. Epic!

– Let’s talk about your offensive line and trying to run the ball.

– That’s a great conversation. There you go.

That’s Bill Cosby! Remember Cliff saying “There you go” to Theo? Maybe some other character?
