    That, and one G. D. hit...


    And there are probably several Twins Cities-based fans who chose outdoor pursuits this afternoon before the game even began. Deduno is fun to watch and all, but it's hard for even him to compete against 60 degrees, solid overcast skies, and intermittent rain showers in a state with 6 months of winter.

Sam... if you are reading this... Just trust your stuff and attack the strike zone. The walks are your biggest bugaboo. Curb those things and you'll be surprised how happy you are and everyone else is. I stopped walking at night and I'm much happier.

    4. Eduardo Escobar -- I know there is a bunch of TD'ers who expect regression. Maybe he will... But last night he convinced me that he's a ball player. That at-bat in the 9th against a struggling Joe Nathan was a thing of beauty. It's something that gamers do. He was fouling off some pretty good pitches to draw a bases loaded walk. We needed an insurance run and he got the (6 years old. But... while small talking and out of things to say... I asked... "How Old"? She replied "25 Months". I immediately wondered why she didn't simply say 2 years old. It was my turn to say something but there was a long pause in the conversation as I was doing math in my head... Finally I said... "We'll... I'm 585 Months old". I figured it was her turn to do the math... So I said... "No calculators... Good seeing you... I'll talk to you later"... And I walked away.
    2 I'm a doubter, he just cant throw strikes. He was one of the better rotation members last year. Says more about how bad it was for the rotation.

    4 I'm a believer he might not be Jeter, but he's good and he's young enough to be a part of the future. Santana has more upside, but maybe CF is a good fit, maybe utility guy. I think there's plenty of room for both.

    If there's a comeback, my prediction is that it will randomly coincide with Sanchez finally coming out of the game in the 7th or 8th, depending on whether he has to sit through another Tigers 20 minute bat-around.

    About .9 years, I think.

    Aren't they about 11 months (maybe just shy of that?)

    I'm like Will Ferrell running down the street in old school... Very few are behind me now.

    3rd time facing Mr. Sanchez... They say 3rd times the charm? or 3rd time pays for all?

    (Sorry i's not as talkative... i'm still paying attention though... kudos for the Sondheim)

    Technically, not until he strikes out a fourth time. I think the term was coined by Doubleday on a weekend drunk in Tijuana.

    Ok Deduno had a bad day... Seems like Swarzak and Matty G are also having bad days.

    Maybe the Tigers are just having a good day. (Ducks behind the couch).

    Well, they've been due for a good day ...

    but I don't think that means that the Twins haven't stunk it up today.
