I suppose Arcia needs a day off once in a while, but....BOO! He's got to learn to hit lefty pitching sometime. Oh well, this smells like a series win for the good guys...

...That's the Twins, for all you negative posters on this board :banghead:

Enjoy it man. Maybe you'll get to see Arcia with a game winning late inning pinch hit walkoff homerun?

Yeah, if the Twins are down late you know Gardy's going to bring the Pony to the plate.

Somebody has to sit every game between C, DH, 1B, RF, and LF. Giving Arcia a day when Parmelee has been better vs. LH pitching than RH pitching makes some sense. I would like to see CP get it going because it would make it clearer that Morneau is expendable. Early in the season I thought Parm was hitting in tough luck, but lately he has not made much good contact.

I'm on board with you man. It has been a tough road for MN sports fans though.

I now know that I have spent too many time on Vikings' discussion boards when CP is more closely associated with Cordarrelle Patterson and Christian Ponder than Chris Parmelee in my mind.

It has been a tough road for MN sports fans though.Here's a rose-colored glasses view for you: 1) The Vikings made the playoffs 2) The Wild made the playoffs 3) The Timberwolves won more games than in a single season than they had in any of the last five years and 4) Minnesota Gophers won an NCAA game for the first time in over a decade. 5) The Twins are several games ahead of their previous pace in 2011 or 2012.

The Twins gave me 2 World Series, for which I am eternally grateful. After 45 years of Viking fandom, they owe me a Super Bowl big time. If that happens I'll die a happy dude. That and I want to watch my daughter win a gold medal in the Olympics in 2016.

Dickbert spasms at a routine fly, but no reaction whatsoever on a ball that's crushed.

What grade are you in?

What grade are you in?

Just finished kindergarten, first year of coach-pitch/t-ball. You should see me run around in circles trying to figure out which base to throw to.

Kidding, My coaching career began with T-ball and culminated in the sixth grade St Paul Catholic school championship.

If I make it through the summer without drop-kicking any 6-year-olds I'll consider it a resounding success.

I have daughters, so I coached girls. My leadoff hitter and center fielder used to borrow my car keys before every game so she could use my rear view mirror to apply her makeup.

Yikes.


I'll stick with the kid that insists on filling his glove with sand and then using it as a catapult.

According to this (http://www.oneplusyou.com/bb/fight5?kids=20), I could take on twenty 5-year-olds in a fight, so I should be able to easily handle a team of 10 if it comes down to it.

Alexi looked safe there, but he did run on the infield grass.

Nice! There's a Michael Jackson joke with a similar set up to that... :)

That was the 14th assist for Twins' outfielders, by far the most in the American League. Next best is KC and NY with 8. It seems to me that Twins' opponents probably have more than eight OF assists, but I can't quantify that.

Accuracy has never been a big game thread concern, have at it. :)

Diamond is not getting it done. ESPN pointed out that he's been bad at Target Field. Ugh.

Crap, went out to mop my ribs and we give up another run.

We are going to need a crap-load of wild pitches/passed balls to get back in this.

Little tired from the road and it was a real sick radio listen today. Must be the pink bats.
