    So would everyone.

    Unfortunately these are only two of the six options.

    The others are:

    lose with veterans
    play about .500 with veterans
    play about .500 with prospects
    win with prospects

    Grey Goose is good vodka, I've never heard of Gray Duck......doesn't sound very appealing.

    And my current superpower of choice would be to discuss something without jinxing it...

    Is that even possible?

    You'd think if that was the case they'd just say he has a tight hammy or something, rather then get everyone worried by saying it s the same spot on the wrist that troubled him last year.

    It seems nothing can go right this year for our prospects/2nd year guys. Lets hope that Gibson, Pinto, Meyer can avoid the curse.

    What is the difference between the two spellings? According to Google Answers, the two words have almost the same meaning in all cases, and g-r-a-y is simply an American derivation of the original spelling g-r-e-y. According to Flak Magazine, the difference can be chalked up to the same happenstances that led to organize/organise and judgement/judgment. Apparently e.e. cummings and Prince are partly to blame as well. However, among the several hypotheses for why gray and grey exist, I believe the following to be the best:

    Gray is a color.

    Grey is a *colour*.

    I'm sure that detail is the result of good reporting by Berardino. I doubt the Twins volunteered many details when they first announced it to the press.

    17m Buxton's wrist had been showing improvement as the #mntwins broke spring camp, Antony said.

    Some good injury news for everyone.

    What's a color? Isn't gray just Americans trying to spell grey? (:

    Maybe it's just a matter of what's more plausible, I mean Arcia hurting a hammy? That would involve running.

    If you're being serious, grey is considered the British spelling. Its a bit more complicated than that as each is an acceptable variant in each place, but most Commonwealth countries, including Canada, prefer grey. We Americans prefer gray.

    Of course, we could just chuck the gray/grey duck thing and play Maverick, Maverick, Goose.
