    Wow, slow night tonight. Lately by the time I have caught up the game is over, but this time I can still make my comment on the opening post
    Arlington is just a city south of Dallas and Ft. Worth
    It's really right between the two, due west of Dallas, due east of Ft. Worth.

    The State of Texas does have a rather vicious strain of a lethal disease called capital punishment that they haven't found a cure for.
    That's not the disease, it's the cure.

    I thought the cure was a band...

    Anyway, 4 runs in 3 innings is not insurmountable.

    When I heard the average on the radio it really struck home how less than ideal his average is. It is almost surreally low. I am beginning to think his valued defensive skills might not be enough to justify his less than optimum offense...

    Certainly makes things interesting ... if not heartbreaking every other week.

    Finally on vacay. And it'll be a staycay this time. I think I will sleep for most of it. Finish painting the bathroom ... which I started 3 years ago ... and finally order some new tile for the kitchen floor and back splash. Anyone know a good tiler in the Chicago area?

    So you say there's hope?

    Hyde's gonna crush the ball! Assuming he can lay off the slider out of the zone.

    Correia hasn't pitched badly, other than the high number of pitches. At least he looks like he's interested....... It doesn't help when the offense sucks!

    Not badly but not well, either.

    Man, Arcia looks so incredibly overmatched. Doesn't matter how far he can hit it if he rarely makes contact.

    I'm in Atlanta for work, so I'm not blacked out on mlb.tv. I was so excited that I was going to get to watch a game live.

    Then this game happened.

    This is a game I thought the Twins would win, but the magical Nick Tepesch is shutting them down. Tomorrow they get Yu in midafternoon, should be fun.

    I didn't know Texas had lost 8 in a row coming in. Makes this worse.

    Yeah...I think the term we're looking for is "Correia-esque"

    Depends on which side of the switch you happen to be sitting on.

    I'm going to take that as 'no', then.

    Polanco works the count full, then grounds to second.

    No first hit for Polanco, unfortunately. Nice that he's getting into games though.
