    Florimon now batting .082, implying that at some point this past week, at least one pitched ball somehow struck his bat and ended up in play. Didn't see it, can't picture it.

    On the other hand, other people I expected to struggle have looked pretty good.

    At least a 50/50 shot at this point, imo... bringing in Molly speaks volumes.

    Still, give the guy his due. He's in the record books, esp. W/L for Twins managers. Big Train got 350, Bucky Harris got 429, and Sam Mele 522. There is only one other mgr. w/1K+ wins- TK.

    This is not a small thing- especially in the present era .

    He and Kelly are two of only ten managers who have a thousand wins with the same team.

    They are also not coincidentally two of only four non-expansion managers since WWII to have three consecutive ninety loss seasons and retain their jobs.

    At any rate, congratulations to Gardenhire, and to the players for discarding what earlier in the week appeared to be a plan to save the thousandth win until the home opener.

    New rule: before you grouse about who is on the bench, take a look at press reports to determine why that player might be on the bench. It's been known since early morning that Arcia was injured and would be sitting out.

    Let's see, Suzuki gets three starts and is 0-3. Pinto has two starts and is 2-0. I know, I know, but just sayin'.

    Anyway, yeah! Congrats for win 1,111,101,000! (Doesn't quite have the same ring to it in binary as in decimal, does it? albeit rather impressive at first glance.)

    And for my own curiosity, i believe the figure excludes post season, but includes the game 163.

    He's not good offensively, but he is putting together good at bats. Taking pitches, fouling pitches off, etc. He'll get a few hits here or there. If the rest of the offense keeps hitting like today, it won't matter that much.

    In blind date setup terms, he still looks like the first thing you'd say about how he looks at the plate is that he has a great sense of defense.

    And if he ever wants to post a wOBA over .300, it sure seems that his best chance is still to steal Barry Bonds' Elbow Guard of Pitch Attraction +3 and take a bunch for the team...
