Some of you may be aware that in addition to being a member of TwinsCentric, I also run an apparel company called DiamondCentric where we provide sports-themed t-shirts. This venture has mostly focused around the Twins but has since branched into other local sports teams. If you are a follower of ours on Facebook, you know that we often do Caption Contests, giving the winner who amuses us the most a free tee. I thought we'd bring the practice over to the Twins Daily community and rewards those of you who have visited our new site. So, for a free Duenslinger t-shirt, give us your best caption for this picture:Attached File  Caption Contest.jpg   26.71KB   111 downloads**Winner will be chosen tomorrow (2/24 at 5 PM Twin Cities time)**

Decided to ditch the glove this year, you guys. Gonna just strike 'em all out. Bold move that lets 'em know you're a real man. Told the other guys about it to pump them up. They looked kind of confused, but you could tell they were impressed.

Eyes closed and hands flopping about: it's how Pavano catches and Drew Butera hits.
