Think he gets it today?


I don't think the wind conditions are favorable for that.

Game-time forecast: Clear. 0% PoP. Winds 8mph from the south. Temperature around 95.


Correction: it's currently 93 degrees F, with scattered clouds, winds at 7 mph from the SSE, and still 0% PoP. Where in the world .... ??? ;)

That's funny, magic 8 ball said "reply hazy" so maybe there's something to the weather report.

I think the bigger question is how many RBI does Colabello have by May 1st?

He's already passed his season total from last year (55 games).

Yeah, we made the mistake of spacing two of our children 3 years apart, and there was that one year which was painful.

Our third child arrived 5 years after the second, so there was that one blissful year of no tuition payments....

No offense, but you could've just let them pay their own way, no?

I cant complain. We had enough saved up to pay for our first kid at the U and she blessed us with a full ride. Add that to my ride, and we wound up with a nice nest egg we didn't expect

Colabello's Mom sounds like a human vuvuzela.

I am more than satisfied with the return on investment so far. :)

Look at Dicks face. Looks like Bert threw his coffee at him.

Of course. It's the nature of the joke that seemed more like just a chance for a cheap shot. Here's mine: I'm calling Florimon's first HR of the season, now that he doesn't have the wind blowing in to prevent it. If that's a shot against Florimon's batting prowess, so be it - but I don't think it's especially cheap.

Did P-Flo have any homers hitting RH last year? If he did, I don't remember. His rep was that RH was his strong side, but he just didn't hit at all from that side of the plate last year.

BTW, if no one has noticed, the Twins are scuffling vs. LH pitching. They've faced three left handers on this road trip and lost all three and won both games started (against them) by right handers.

Man, if Dozier keeps walking this much, he might be the best leadoff guy in a long while, even with a sub-.250 average.
