No... She makes them up for me.

Here's mine that she posted on the fridge.

1. Hang up towel after showering.
2. Quit spilling food on your shirt.
3. Knock on the bathroom door before you come charging in.
4. Eat Healthy... No more food that tastes good.
5. Listen attentively... I shouldn't have to repeat things.
6. Mow the lawn before it rains.
7. Quit trying to be funny... Nobody gets your jokes.
8. Close the door quietly... The whole house shakes when you close it.
9. Quit referring to me as your ball and chain.
10. Make more Money!!!


Good grief. My wife and your wife are the same woman!

Pick the three easiest.

On an unrelated note (no, really), why has this inning sounded like Dick and Jack are broadcasting from an Indians private suite filled with drunk executive wives?

I think this is the part where Popeye says... I've Stansk all I can Stansk and I can't Stansk no more.

At these moments... Popeye would eat some Spinich... The Twins will call up Eduardo Nunez and I'm going back to work.

There were 9 movies about that very same topic on Lifetime last Saturday, except about husbands. Busy that day, so thank goodness for DVR's.

And Dick might be a little tipsy himself, he's been messing up Escobar, Santana, and Nunez all game

Don't forget the affair with the babysitter. And child abduction.

If I learned one thing today, it's that I like Danny Santana's work.


Well, Santana has 3 hits in 6 at bats. No errors in two games. I have seen enough, cut Pedro and Nunez and lets move on and get a normal looking roster.

    The Dodgers will average $334 million annually in TV revenue over the next 8 years. Cardinals current deal gives them $25MM a year. Unreal.



    And the Twins deal is what? Like $40 million?

Deduced from your choice of 9 over 6 that you don't have a Cubota.

Are you saying she does not unwind at the end of the day relaxing while reading your TwinsDaily posts appreciating your wit and way with words in regards to both baseball and numerous other topics?

Dick's forecast for the upcoming series in Detroit? "Roster juggling".

His gift for the understatement of incoherence and disaster is matched only by his ability to dramatize routine warning track fly balls...

If you left out 5, how do you even know what 3 8 and 9 are?

Oh wait. Repetition...

I heard somewhere that was one of the keys to humor.
(If memory serves. Tell joke. If funny, repeat until it's not. If not, repeat until it is.
something like that.)

Anyway, game over, man!

There seems to have been a rally. Too bad it was the Indians rallying...

PS Wise choice Re: Food vs. game thread. They became mutually exclusive within minutes of your departure.

Gardenhire is simultaneously furious and embarrassed about the roster in the postgame.

I hope that meant that he's mad at himself, and ashamed, as he had a hand in digging this organizational hole.

This whole organization should be ashamed of what has become of this team. I'm not usually one for hyperbole or excessive negativity but that team on the field today was embarrassing.

Yeah, meant that he was mad about the mistakes others made, and embarrassed about his. Or at least that was my takeaway. Not a mind reader, but it would make sense.

This is as good of a time as any to vent.

mmmm punch!

Wait. Was that a joke you made about not listening attentively? And consequent repetition?

Golly, i think i've been one upped! Well done sir! (and I like that the list now goes to 11).

Ya know, i think there is plenty of punch to go around! Yeay, verily, the punch bowl runneth over. Only the cool aid glass is half full.

Punch and ... Judy? Pie? The New Yorker? A bag of/for?... for some reason the word punch is fraught with associations.

Now if only the twins line up can find its punch again in Detroit!

Thanks again for an entertaining game thread, even if'n i didn't contribute so much. I too kinda zoned out at the barrage of doubles in the bottom of the 7th...

"Roster juggling".


While i know what he (Dick) means, it still feels like something is inaccurate.

If i've been paying attention, we had 2 people on the bench yesterday and 1 today?

Last i checked, the usual sense of juggling occurs when you have more objects than hands...

Anyway... tomorrow is a new day and a new game. I count these games as "interesting times" even if not everything is going our way.

Great catch. Looks like Bert isn't the only one who learned math in the Golden State...
