    I know you were there for the Baltimore series... Are you travelling to KC now?

    If so, eat some barbeque. I've been dying for some good barbeque.

    RP: Thanks for doing these series previews and game threads. My guess is TD isn't paying you enough.

    Yeah I will be at the game today tomorrow and wed. Then most likely to St. Louis for a game Thursday then Minnesota for the twins vs mets series, (though prob going to a wild game that sat). Hopefully the twins continue to win.

    Best part is I have business folks to see in St. Louis and Minnesota so the trip ends up working out perfectly.

    If you didn't jump on that, I would have. No way does East Coast seafood compare to West Coast! I'm from Alaska, so a little bias here...
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Yeah, dodging a bit of a bullet there. Hopefully the Twins can continue to win against mediocre pitching before facing some of the aces of the AL.

    No matter what happens, we will always have those heady days of early April.

    Have to love early April numbers.
    Miguel Tejada and Eduardo Escobar are the team BA leaders coming into this series!
    (Yes, I know neither has enough PA's to qualify)

    With the way Gardy has used the bench, Escobar+Florimon+Ramirez together amount to a starting "shortstopinchitter" that does have very admirable stats to start the season, even if you take out the one start in the outfield.

    How long has Gordon been leading off? This is new this season no? Wasn't Cain leading off last year?
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    Gordon had the majority of his PA's from the leadoff spot last year as well.

    I'm extremely jealous of you. Baseball road trips would be at the top of my list of things to do.

    If I just got in the car and started driving. I wonder how long it would take for my wife to notice that I wasn't around.

    I might be able to make it a week before being called back home.
