My Snarcasm™ meter had it at just 15% snark, vs 85% sarcasm.


I do not know the difference between the two.

    Sam Fuld (concussion) has yet to start baseball activities. He hasn't had three good days in a row yet. He's had two but not three

    Does this seem a little frightening to anyone else? The fact that they only need to have 3 good days in a row?

    Twins top prospect Byron Buxton remains in a holding pattern with his wrist. Still just resting it, per asst GM Rob Antony.

    ​On and on and on and on .....







Thank you for these Tweet updates... Keeping on tweeting.

Adjustments? First pitch swing and pulled.

I swear Mauer could be a real force again if he started to jump on that first pitch.

I'm sure this has been covered before, but yesterday it was new to me....

In Joe Mauer's "fun fact" when he's up to bat, it says that if he wasn't a baseball player, he'd be a carpenter.

Surely he's just having fun with us, right?

Had to laugh at mlb gameday. The pitch by pitch said that Hughes was throwing a knuckle curve.


Never having pitched at any level other than in BP to guys in need of confidence, identifying pitch type has remained largely a mystery to me well into the slow-mo/sabre/internet era.

But that strikes me as one of those 'room for improvement' moments...

I'm not sure what to make of this but... It's kinda funny... I type a game set up and get 2 likes.

Later on I type that I'm not going to write another one and I get 7 likes.

The TD'ers are trying to tell me something but I'm not sure what it is.

His company would have to be OBP Builders.

Hmmm, if he were a carpenter, would his wife had married him anyway? Would she have had his babies?

Mauer swings at first pitch fastball in RBI situation, pulls line drive double into RF corner.

Coincidence?


I'll go with Causality...
