    On the radio broadcast, Provus said he asked Gardy about catching Suzuki and DH'ing Pinto and Gardy said he is fine with doing that and he plans on doing it. Where was that philosophy when Butera was around?

    2016? The bleachers at Wrigley don't have an upper deck.

    Twins trivia:

    This is what constitutes improvement

    1. Runners at 1st and 3rd and no one out and K, K, K

    2. Runners at 1st and 2nd and no one out and K, Fly, K.


    See? 2 seems marginally better than 1

    You should be able to score a run or two by accident, you'd think. Maybe that's how we have been scoring?

    Ryan's not a natural either. I imagine the front office has had training, but if I was Pohlad or St Peter I would bring in a Public Speaking trainer and make at least a day mandatory for everyone all the way down to the ticket sellers, a week for anyone who is there as a career, and at least a refresher course once a year. It's that bad.

    On the bright side Bartlett has his average up over .100!

    Butera would be a terrible DH.

    That's some movement on Deduno's pitch to strike out Gomes. Brian, were you aware of that?

    So it's Susannah Hoffs love, not necessarily Bangles love.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Deduno dominant once again. He should be our ace, not our mop up man.

    What Twins pitcher (or two or three) will ask to take regular batting practice thinking he could hit better than 1/2 the starting line-up?

    Hope Chi Town is gone this statement would depress her greatly.

    Nolasco or Pelf. Those are my guesses.
