How do you have a negative OPS+ on May 7th? April 7th, sure. But May 7th?
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

9/11 - the date baseball decided to turn the middle of the 7th inning from a stretch into a siesta

I went to the Dr. today to get my head checked out. He said that my problem was watching the Twins. Apparently, looking at lineups like these the last few nights cause the same symptoms.

"In that darkness the White Walkers came for the first time. They swept through cities and kingdoms, riding their dead horses, hunting with their packs of pale spiders big as hounds."

They actually sound like they could be a pretty formidable team. I know some people want more attitude - the Twins finding their inner-white walker might help create that.

Yeah, I have to wonder what being touched by a white walker could mean in the baseball world... Florimon suddenly being able to hit?

"Jon Snow, you know nothing!" in general sounds like an appropriate quote... Not that i know anything either.

But really this post makes me recollect my Ogden Nash... What was it... Ode to a llama?

We should think about moving Mauer to a less physically demanding position so he can play everyday.

I for one am glad Mauer's not in today's lineup. Team doesnt' need him.

I have been calling for a new manager since last season, but in this case he can only pick from the available options. Of course, there is ample evidence he is at least partially responsible for the construction of the 25 man roster (3 catchers! I need 3 catchers!) So I'm less inclined to cut him complete slack here.


3 Catchers and 13 Pitchers, who a week ago all got a 3 day rest.....and are just coming off of 4 consecutive Quality Starts.....this is largely on Gardy.
