Emilio Bonafacio has his 10th hit already this season. In the first inning of game 3. Wow.


The man that wasn't good enough to be our 25th man is on a mission. He just got his 2nd hit of the day, 11th of the season, along with his 4th SB. He's already started at 2 positions and played 3 different positions in 3 games.

Sure, he'll likely soon come back closer to his career averages, but it definitely was a major miss not getting him from KC as a Super Util guy who could lead off a couple games a week.

You are trying to hurt me by saying that. I trust the Twins Front office but I fail to understand how Bartlett makes more sense over Bonofacio.

Nope. Wherever I am is automatically Twins territory. That's just how it works.


Hey ... then let's go to a southside bar together to watch the Twins and Sox play :)

The thing is... there's nothing wrong with his career averages.

He's an awesome super-utility guy (both real life and fantasy) and a perfectly serviceable starter.

In the baddest part of town? If you go down there... You better just beware.

I figured Kubel would be in the lineup today. Is the White Sox starter a lefty?
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Damn you and damn your windy city!


Checked the weather at the Cell ... rain has stopped, overcast, winds 10-15 from the E, ESE, about 39 (but feels like 35) ... I think you won't have to wait. We aim to satisfy your anticipation here in the Windy City.

Seriously ... if we showed up in a Sox bar, I mean a real Sox bar in the Bridgewater neighborhood, we would not be allowed in or tossed. But quite honestly, I'm not that stupid, either. But we could get away with it in my neighborhood place, which is only southloop ... not far enough south.

Damn your Windy City anyway... Too many White Sox Fans!!! Traffic Hell!!! The worst 5 days of my life was attempting to drive through Chicago at 1MPH. I hit the Chicago Suburbs at 12Noon on a Monday and reached Indiana at 5PM on Friday.

Well I trust you but it'll be hard for me since I always base my real life decisions on Jim Croce.

Isn't it against the commenting policy for Chi Town to try picking up the Big Dog on a game thread?

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Nope... It's only against Policy for ChiTown to try picking up Brian Dozier due to conflict of interest.

Taking a shot at someone's self-effacing humor is also not unknown to me.
