    Spending another night watching weather. Photos of new tornados tonight -- northeast of the big one yesterday.

    That's enough of this now.

    Are we going to get nailed? I was thinking about venturing out on foot.

    Unless you are venturing out for the entire night, I think you're in good shape.

    Still southwest of me -- its in northeast NE -- should take a long time to move northeast. Looks pretty clear to the north and east of me for now.

    So have a good walk.

    Frustrating for sure but I'll take a string of low scoring one run losses over the clown car pitching performances of April (or 2013) any day.

    It does look like most rain will stay south of the TC.

    Well, we wanted good pitching -- and we're getting that.

    Now if the bats would come alive. Maybe they need some sacrificial chickens.

    That's merciful. I'm spending the next week in Orlando. I'm sure I'll see more rain than I can handle anyway.

    What I don't get, is we do great against great pitchers. It's the bubble guys we cant touch.

    It looks like you may get some rain after midnight.

    I'm an Arcia guy, but I wouldn't be adverse to a little trip to Rochester for him. He needs a little bit of humility. Doesn't look like he has a plan at the plate. Don't think he has had a hit since May! Unfortunately, there are no other options. Twins OF is a mess right now, IMO.

    Anybody here seen my old friend Joey?
    Can you tell me where he's gone?
    He freed a lotta baseballs but it seems the great skillz die young
    I just looked around and he's gone

    Yup. If anyone had said that Mauer would be the only mid-June black hole out of all five infield spots even without Plouffe on the DL, well... nobody would have said that.

    OTOH, while Willingham and Arcia had nice runs after returning to the lineup, and Hicks' struggles surprised almost nobody but Rob Antony, it's still surprising how rough the overall play of the outfield has been.

    And small sample plus totally subjective, but Gardenhire seems more short-tempered with the media after losses this year than in the previous three, despite the team's improved play. Managerial style aside, it makes me concerned for his health.

    Don't worry. Unlike Abe and Co., Joe's bat is only mostly dead.
