    Some days having picture in a picture so you can watch 2 games is a really bad thing, today was one of those days.

    Another runner on first with no outs. Let's score this inning.

    Fun with numbers: More posts here than fans at the stands by the ninth?

    FYI, Chicago Cubs in 1968 apparently did not score in 48 innings. They also were shut out 4 times in a row which has happened 11 more times since then.

    We're threatening now, though...but a K and DP should do the trick.

    Hammer time. A home run would tie this game.

    It's safe to say that if the weather were nicer, there would easily be twice as many 9th inning faithful as there are game thread posts.

    '68 Cubs went 84-78. Twins are achieving their streak the hard way, by actually being so inept that being shut out three or four times in a row isn't an anomaly, it's justice.

    For Minnesota fans, currently just another opportunity to wallow in frustration and despair.

    The finale to my own personal trilogy today (after these two games) will be the latest episode of Breaking Bad....somehow it seems fitting.

    Hey Glunn, since Ashbury doesn't appear to be around. I thought I would put up a Rally Avatar.
