Dozier has raised his average 188 points this game.


What's he batting now?

If you haven't been, absolutely go to Ravenna. You can see the sadly ignored Byzantine and even Gothic Italy. If you're I to mosaics, I think Ravenna has the best of their kind in all of Italy.

Also, Mauer!


I'm glad my wife is not reading this thread. We just got back from Australia and New Zealand, and she is already looking to plan our next big trip.

Indians announcers second guessing the decision to hold Dozier at third.


I hate to whine so much about Vavra, but I agree with them. Strikeout hitter on deck, and like they said, it would have taken two perfect throws to get him. I'm concerned about Vavra's judgment.

May be a little gun shy after the last one. You have to believe Gardy wasn't to happy with him

Yeah, thanks. It's on our agenda for sure. I'd really love to spend some time down south too.

I'm guessing that decision was self-reflective over-correcting… and perhaps responsive to an earlier chat with the manager.

Should'a gone fishing

That's the Twins I know and love. Leaving the bases juiced and walking away with nothing.

Making a mistake in the opposite direction isn't gonna win points back with the boss man.

Australia is definitely on my list of must go places. I have an Aussie friend that wants to go with me, which would be awesome.

A free weekend in Melbourne during a business trip was nowhere near enough to say I've really been there. Loved the experience.

Was Carlos Santana named for the musician, anybody?

B-r.com lists Santana as 210 pounds. Perhaps at birth.
