At the Met, they brought it to your seat. Everything was better at the Met.

Yup. But the little wooden silverware gave everything an aftertaste, IMO.

Ah yes, those malty ice cream things. I was an addict.

Okay one of the things I missed while napping or on the phone, what happened to Plouffe?

More serious answer...he took a pitch off the back of the upper left arm earlier, and it was clearly bothering him later, including the AB where he drove in two.

I can't guarantee which game it will be. But, when the Turk eventually comes for him, he won't be bearing a round-trip ticket.

Burton!

There's a piece in the Pioneer Press today about how the Twins really liked what they saw from Burton in Tampa Bay.

Apart from all the runs, and all.

Does he come back out for the 8th? I worry that Burton will come in.

I blame Chitown.

My wife has been hinting strongly about taking our cat to a farm.

I understood... And we talked about it.

However... She just did... And my jaw is on the floor... She actually did it.

Unfortunately, it looks like Burton's time is almost up. He's just not going to revert back to 2012 form.
