    I would love to hear Gardenhire's explanation for why Gray was pitching the 8th inning of a tie game.

    I got a screenshot of it here

    Looks like a crude tattoo of a target with crosshair and a piercing thing in the bullseye

    Which seems only fair considering the bruised nut of the Twins.

    "Cause that's the way we do it around here, and will always do it."

    Notice the jackass did today (walk Reddick) what he should have done yesterday (walk Cabrera). Quite the learning curve. And, what's with Lexi and all the recent errors?

    "The book" says never to intentionally walk the lead run. Also, there were two out when they passed Reddick to pitch to a far inferior hitter (and RH hitter) in Gomes. Capps would have had to get both Fielder and Boesch to secure the save, both of whom are LH hitters. Cabrera is a great hitter, but the Twins had done a good job with him his last three ABs.

    I know I shouldn't criticize Gardy, because for all his faults, he's still a much better manager than I could ever be. But some of his decisions do make me scratch my head.

    Thanks Thrylos. I guess I was right. I wonder what it represents? Does Crisp have a fetish that dictates that he wants to be shot through the neck by a hit man? I guess The evolution of physical self expression still has the wind blowing into its sail. I suppose it is better than getting a tribal tattoo or plugs inserted into one's ear lobes.

    I am generally quite pleased with Diamond so far. After giving up two early solo homeruns, he could have imploded but wound up pitching into the 7th inning and giving up only 3 runs. Those are the kinds of outings we need. Keep it up.

    Dozier & Hammer have been slumping, they need to get it going again and the SP has been much better of late.
