Anybody know what's up with the ballcaps? Are the Twins changing back to the "M" logo? I personally liked the "TC" logo - hearkens back to my childhood days at the old Met.
Yesterday was the "Stars and Stripes" camo print inside the "M" for Memorial Day. I presume the "M" cap was chosen because the camo would show better because the T is the only thing in camo in the "TC" cap. The pitcher, I know, picks the jersey top, so by extension, I presume, they pick the cap. Since De Vries grew up in Eden Prairie and grew up with the "M" hat and has fond memories of it, he went that direction in his home debut and busted it out for the first time, I believe, since 2009.

Boy, do I feel old now:). I remember when Harmon was belting them out in Bloomington and the Metrodome was just an idea fighting for legislative approval (yes, it was just as hard to get a stadium back then). I also remember when the dome opened how neat we all thought it was - boy, did that wear off quickly.

MLB said it was going to be a pitching battle... But I almost expect the opposite. Probably over 5 runs each even though Parker hasn't been bad at all. I think we can tag him for some runs early.
Well I was WAY off! But I'm glad. Nothing wrong with a pitching battle (as long as we sneak out the win).

OK, moment of truth - does DeVries go out for the 6th? He's at 92 pitches now, and they sent him out for the 6th last time and it turned out to be a mistake, but he's pitched better the last couple of innings... Do you gamble and try to save the bullpen for Liriano tomorrow?
Manship is in, there's your answer

How long has it been since the Twins had a walk-off HR? I am assuming it was Thome against the Sox in August of 2010. I am going out on a limb and putting some positive mojo out there tonight. Either Plouffe of Span hits a walk-off HR.
Let's hope you are prophetic -- Plouffe up with two men on.
