    That was my vote too, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

    I was looking for a picture to add, but there aren't enough photos on the web of people dismembering rally monkeys.

    7 innings of scoreless one-hit ball with 8 strikeouts. I guess there's only one question left: Kyle Gibson. Great pitcher, or greatest pitcher?

    Not if he's counting on the Twins offense or bullpen to get him the requisit 300 wins that is assumed to be automatic inclusion.

    Greatest? What, are you trolling? The question is greatest pitcher of his era, or greatest pitcher ever.

    Nice outing. If he can keep on an impressive track for about 7 years, we can have the HOF discussion.

    So at what point do we give the Twins coaches etc credit for how far Gibson has come?

    The only way I'd vote in these polls is if "more Gardenhire" was an option. .

    Imagine how mad Twins fans would be if we would've drafted Trout instead.

    Last nights outing prob takes him out of the running for 100% of the vote. 99% of the vote on first ballot is still his for the taking.
