    Exactly. With the kitchen demolished, my wife will not be cooking. And the Twins can still win this game. Both good things, but we just lost the potential double play.

    I just went to check pitch counts before the 6th inning and was disappointed when I saw that Correia was going to be brought out for another inning. That should not have happened. I have seen earlier this year that Hughes and Gibson were cruising through their starts and were taken out after around 90 pitches. I just can't follow the logic when it comes to sending a guy back out for the Twins. It's sporadic at best and it always leaves me second guessing. The 2 starts that Hughes and Gibson pitched were held up by the bullpens I believe, but it still doesn't make sense when put side by side with Correia's outtings...

    I recall going off on a rant--in a thread of it's own--last year over just such pitching moves. Struggling starter miraculously gets to the middle of the game with a lead, Gardy leaves him in to "save the bullpen."

    Gardy ends up needing just as many outs from the bullpen, only now it's no longer with the lead.

    It's just...frustrating.

    This is why it's so frustrating that they brought back this dinosaur of a manager. New stadium, big deal.

    I don't know how to help you except to suggest a kitchen remodel, which is an expensive strategy that will buy you only a month or so.

    Don't know about money, but it'd be about 30 minutes in Vegas for Mrs Chief.

    6,000 nickels actually if my math correct
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Sit back and relax, it's "Everyone gets to pitch night". Roster move to 13 pitchers should be announced sometime tomorrow.

    I am looking forward to the replay on that.

    Edit -- just saw the replay -- very nice.
