    Okay, I was satellite-less.

    How did the Twins get the 2nd run?

    I'm sure Ronny G's memories are sharper than mine and that was the basis for his roster move.
    I remember him hitting a game winning homer off Rivera maybe 4-5 years ago...maybe even a grand slam? But that was clearly a different Kubel

    Just saw that Willy had a solo HR.

    Nice to see him productive since his return.

    Hope Perkins is sharp today.

    Nice way for Dozier to break a slump.

    Thatta kid, Dozier!
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I'll feel better about this if we can get Hicksie in.

    Yup. After Rivera had issued a walk or two. And I remember Rivera saying he wasn't as upset about the GS as he was the walks.

    I was with my sons and father-in-law moving my daughter into her apartment in Hamilton, NY after her college graduation, and we celebrated Kubel's game winner with a beer break...nice memory!

    2nd run of the game or the inning?

    Game: Willingham sent the first pitch he saw to lead off the 9th over the left field wall.

    Inning: Suzuki and Hicks walked (Kubel and Escobar K'd) and Dozier doubled to left.

    (They intentionally walked Mauer, so bases are loaded)

    Okay, I want Nunez to make the Yankees sorry they got rid of him.

    Just like Mauer to walk and leave the RBI chance up to someone else.
