    Hmmm... Would texting on tin cans and string involve a clothespin?

    At least they are reporting no break. That was a nasty one.

    Would anyone else here feel more confident going into the bottom of the ninth with major league outfielders in LF and CF?

    I like Escobar and think he should get a chance to be the regular SS, but I think his drawback is lack of great speed and range for a guy without much power. He's hit pretty lustily this year, so maybe he has a bit more than a little power.

    I would. But Perk knows what he's got out there and will get it done.

    It turns out that the defensive problem was at 1B.

    Hurray for the rubber band!

    Seems particularly effective in rubber games...

    5-0 in rubber games. I was going to mention that the Twins were actually better off a year ago (18-17), but fell into a big funk from there.

    So all, thanks for the good times. Starting a complicated new job tomorrow after being underemployed for a few months. Probably limited to weekends at most for the rest of this season.

    Ciao.

    Thankfully, that's unlikely to happen this year, as the pitching staff continues to look somewhat competent. I don't see long losing streaks in this team's future.

    And Perk closes it out with one fly ball for each outfielder.
