    Well, I live in northwest Iowa and Iowa State is bigger here than in the eastern part of the State. But there are also a lot of Cornhusker fans.

    LOl on maid rites. They are more of a central-eastern Iowa thing as well.

    My part of Iowa seemingly has more in common with the Dakotas than with a lot of the state of Iowa.

    He's considered day-to-day for now. Drew Butera will start behind the plate Thursday while Josh Willingham serves as the designated hitter and Darin Mastroianni plays left field.

    Starting to look like the Twins might have been smart to spend a little $$$ on a few more September call-ups.

    Two flipping hits... They were back to back... Nothing since. Are we facing Mendoza or Saberhagen? Swinging at some real bad stuff.

    White Sox - Tigers cancelled. Was hoping the Sox would just have a late game tonight.

    With the White Sox I usually hope for Polio

    when you just give up the position at 3 spots (Florimon/Escobar/Butera)...you gotta expect that

    Seriously, though... I think the server was just lagging a bit. I approved your post. It never should have been held in the first place.
    Is there someplace I can look to see if Inderal is a banned substance in baseball? I have used it myself when giving speeches and it virtually eliminates stage fright. If Hendriks could use this, it might help him a lot.
    A large dose of Tequila does the same thing for me.
    Me too, but Inderal does not affect your ability to perform complex tasks like Tequila does.
    Lol.. Complex tasks... You mean like standing at the podium instead of leaning on it. Starting every sentence with... Seriously Dude... You gotta listen... Listen... Seriously...
    Seriously, it is used by musicians who must retain a high level of dexterity, including concert pianists. And I have never had any side effects, except a complete loss of any feelings of stress.

    2 hits 16 official at bats is .125. We could bat the Padres pitching staff and expect two hits of of Mendoza. I think it has more to do with the Twins being way too aggrssive at the plate and swinging at pitches they shouldn't.

    Morneau looked pretty bad there -- was he really expecting the 0-2 pitch to be a strike?

    He was if he spends much time watching the Twins pitching staff.

    I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure he didn't expect it to dive into the dirt.
