    Makes about as much sense as Lakers when you put it that way

    Thats right I forgot.

    I used to wonder how someone your age could post at 12 midnight... Then I remembered... Tucson... Pacific Time... You are just finishing Supper at 12 Midnight Central.

    Then I wonder... Why is someone my age reading your posts at 12 Midnight.

    Nice play Kubel!
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    That's gonna be tough since I am meeting her around 7:30, but I see your point. Maybe I should get an apartment for a month or two until she starts to miss me.

    //ring ring// "Honey, it's me. Yeah, I'm not going to be home by 9. I'm going to my apartment instead."

    That should work out well.

    Now I can complain about official scoring. It hurts no one that the run is ruled unearned, but it isn't right. Even a slow guy like Pinto scores on that double (near triple), with two outs. That run should be earned.

    If Mauer goes 3 for his next 4, he'll be batting .300 on the season.

    If Plouffe has to face Grienke much more, he'll be batting .030 by night's end.

    I was going to go today but Stubhub wasn't authenticating credit cards at about 4:30 PM (which is a heck of a time to stop considering sales close 2 hrs before game time). Anybody else try to get tickets for today's game?

    That's what I thought.

    Nice pick by Plouffe. Guess that's why it's the hot corner.

    And, Butera is on base again.
