    Call 911. That's hypothermia.

    Send him back out there!
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    If Gibson doesn't get a chance for the shutout I am going to be upset. He doesn't have that many pitches, we have a big lead, he hasn't been in trouble all day, and we have another game tonight. If this isn't the time to let him go then we are basically saying there is never a time for a pitcher to complete a game.

    Ladies and gentlemen: Pedro Florimon, power hitter.

    It would be great to see him finish it off.

    (I guess this one was a save situation at least...)

    Yes, it's a shame to rob the young man of the opportunity. He had the chance to take over the league lead in CG.

    With '1'.

    If he had 95 instead of 105, I think they'd let him go for it. Starting the ninth at 105, it's pretty doubtful he'd finish the inning and I doubt the Twins want to have a pitcher come on in the middle of an inning.

    I'll take 8 shutout innings in 32 degree weather from our starting pitcher any day of the week. No complaints here if someone else finished it off

    Hey, how many of you will be watching Game 2 and commenting on this board? I would certainly rather watch baseball than playoff hockey, but I do have an evening appointment.

    We might have something here in Gibsy.

    Not to mention in freezing temps. I'm not at all upset he doesn't finish.

    Hmmm...I've suddenly noticed that the Twins win, and sometimes kick ass, when I keep my yap shut all game.

    Must have decided that if a long guy is needed, it'll be Deduno tonight. Interesting decision

    Woohoo! Watch here for the next game's lineups. When I see they are up, I will post them in thread. I don't think Brian will be thinking again ... once a day is enough for him.
