    Anyone for Kubel in LF is probably a defensive improvement.

    I feel more confident with Fien on the mound these days than any other Twins reliever, including Perk.

    I hate the camera view in Petco. That last pitch did not look like ball 4 from the tv angle.

    Kubes doesn't have much range but he catches what he gets too and knows where to throw the ball too, haven't been able to say the same for some of the infielders in the outfield moments we have been privy too this year.

    I'm not the worst bowler on the planet, but I know there are plenty out there that are better than me.

    An insurance run would be nice, but the local ice cream laboratory closes at 11:00.

    Been to over 200 games in person, and that's the first time I've seen an inside the parker.

    And yes, I am at Petco Park. Target Field is better, btw.

    +1. It's brutal. Especially now that you pointed it out.

    I think that RB's setup was especially funny tonight. I hope that people realize how lucky we are to get the setups on game day.

    Correct. If I want ice cream the game needs to end no later than 10:40 PST.
