    Meh. Just throw in Duensing and it'll work itself out.

    After Duensing and Burton I mean. If we only still had Butera to throw in.

    Esco's parents might too before the series is over.

    Gagne's range was maligned by scouts initially. Eventually greater acknowledgement of the effect of artificial turf and a bit of Bronze Age defensive metrics pushed back on that, and he finished his career with a reputation as an unflashy major plus defender.

    But everyone could see early on that Gagne had a strong, accurate arm and was excellent at converting balls he got to into outs. Tulo's defense is like Gagne with a minor in leaping throws.

    Colorado has a couple of Home Runs tonight. I am jealous. I want the Twins to be a home run hitting club. The attached image is my presentation to make that happen next season and you do not have to tare down walls to do it - just put up the plastic orange fencing they use to convert recreational baseball fields to softball fields. Magenta (pink) equals new outfield wall.

    Orange temp fencing is gauche. How many bolts of fabric would it take to curtain it tastefully?

    Can we watch from the fenced off portion? Perhaps serve tea and scones?

    Oh well. Comebacks are always long shots...

    Thanks all!

    Last evenin' game 'til after the all star.

    I don't think it will help the twins much, but i just remembered: paper covers rock.
