He's only 35. You can't give up on that potential. Just look at Colabello.


Maybe he should be figuring it out in the Greenland League.

Five walks in the first inning. The Twins continue to hurtle towards a franchise record.

Is it a tight zone or is everyone just wild today?

I'm listening on radio

Ugh, staked to a 3-0 lead, first four pitches from Nolasco showing no touch at all.

Nolasco wasn't cheated on any of his first pitches.

Florimon! We missed you!

It looks like he might give us four more chances to miss his offensive contribution.

I love double plays when we're on defense.
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

They tried to join the association of independent leagues, but were told they were just a little toooo independent.

I think a fetus could pitch to Florimon and strike him out.


There's a joke in there somewhere. Loadin' them up with vernix caseosa.

Jennings looked really slow going down to first.

Who the Rays have in their bullpen? Oi.

They used everyone yesterday. With Balfour, Lueke and Gomes going more than an inning. They might have to pull a starter to finish the game if Bedard can't make it through the next couple innings.

SSS fact:
The Twins are on pace to score 116 first inning runs.

They scored 65 first inning runs last year.

OK, I'm enjoying this game pretty well so far. Last night Mauer swung and missed at a first pitch, today it's a solid single to right. Let's go, extra inning Trev!

Runner on third, less than two outs, can't get him home. Typical.

Gotta be happy if you're Nolasco - staked to an early lead and had a short first inning of work despite being a little wild.

I'm not complaining. Good change of pace from the early scores of yester-year... i mean last year. Had been hoping to see Dozier lead off 3 innings in a row, but oh well.

Can we go back to Effectively Wild Nolasco?

I'm guessing four runs won't be enough.

Just saw Reusse ribbing Mayer on twitter for RBI total vs Fulds. Why are people bashing the guy who will likely end up being our best statistical hitter by end of season? He will be the reason why this offense continues to be successful long-term.

People that want to complain about one of top offenses currently, should be whining about Flo and Hicks.

Yeah, it's stupid, but that's Reusse. He's such a crank it's ridiculous.
