And by the by, on this date in 2001, a certain Denny Hocking went 3-for-4, including two doubles, scored three runs and knocked in one, as the Good Guys defeated the team from Detroit, 14-5. Well played Mr. Hocking!

This Denny Hocking memory is brought to you by Grain Belt Beer. Grain Belt... not a sissy-boy beer!

That thing looks like a tasty meal to me, and I'm not even a predator by nature (except on the occasional discussion thread)


Is that a Jeffrey Dahmer quote?:)

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

I reached for the remote to check the score... Playing in Anaheim! duh Sconnie! Then I checked the scores, Mets and As are already done before first pitch in LA. 10-1 Mets?

Too lazy to look it up. Is this K. Morales's first visit to Anaheim since the Unfortunate Home Run that Cannot be Named?

Also, saw "Thunderdome" again. Now everytime I see Kendrys at the plate, I hear a voice: "Two men enter. One man leaves." Don't know what to make of it.


Looked it up. Thought his injury occurred in 2012. Was 2011. I'll go sit in the corner with my Grain Belt.

I don't know. What position did Dahmer play? Wait, let me look it up. Wait, better not...

Would the Kevin Bacon treatment suffice? (see post # 22 above :th_alc:)

Almost 12 years and the Rally Monkey still is lingering.

Screw the Rally Monkey - the Twins need their own Rally Animal.

I would have preferred the Comeback Bunny, but that might not have had enough testosterone behind it for some to deem acceptable.

Oh, how cute.

It should be illegal to start baseball games after 10pm Eastern

I like the rhino. The bunny not so much.


Don't underestimate someone's level of bad ass just because they "appear" cuddly.

The monkeys got there first. Oh, well.

Some people see things as they are and ask why? Others see things as they never were and claim mad cow.

That's a pretty good lineup they run out there


It seems to be one Gardy favors - he's used it several times after Morales was acquired and Plouffe got hurt.

Twentieth straight game Santana has led off, if I counted right.
