Yohan Pino v David Phelps had "pitcher's duel" written all over it when I first saw the lineups.

Are you insured and bonded?


No and no (the boss is a fully licensed general contractor though). This is South Dakota, if you aren't a plumber or an electrician they'll let just about any hack with a hammer work on a house.


And you take up the old floor, too?

I'm blaming you for that run.

Why didn't the Twins challenge Suzuki's stolen base? He was out.

They don't have the benefit of the great Gardenhire mind in the dugout.

Can't speak for others, but I'd like:

Knoblauch, 2b, circa 1995
Mauer, c, circa 2009
Puckett, cf, circa 1988
Killebrew, 1b, circa 1969
Mack, LF, circa 1992
Oliva, rf, circa 1964
Gaetti, 3b, circa 1986
Davis, DH, circa 1991
Versailles, SS, circa 1965

Blyleven, sp, circa 1973

Lets see the GD Yankees beat that team.

of course, since none of the above are available to Gardy today, Parmelee in the three hole isn't the worst decision in history.


Great lineup Chief. If there is a heaven, they will eventually be playing there against Babe Ruth, Micky Mantle and other Yankee greats.

It's not Heaven, it's called Iowa. (Okay, trying to be 'Field-of-Dreams-ish' with that.)

There was no video in the (18)70's.

figured I'd take the shot before someone else could


You should post GIFs of some of your cave drawings showing you when you were young.

Sadly I couldn't make the trip west this weekend. I wanted to meet Glunn. My wife had a heart surgery this morning, and she had to be there. If anyone wants to watch my kid kick some Brazilian ass. They play at 7 pacific time. http://www.teamusa.o...l/2014-USAV-Cup


I am sending positive energy to your wife. And looking forward to your next trip to LA.

Oh no, my wife passes gas. She's not the patient. If they have emergency hearts, they usually call on her.

Radio guys Gladden & Provus agreed that he looked safe at game speed.

And those guys are always right. About everything.

Just woke up after a half hour nap. Nothing has happened.

Considering returning to my coma.

And as long as you wear appropriate ear plugs and protective eye wear, a lot more fun. (I would imagine.)


What is this concept of safety equipment? Other than a water tank during dry weather, we are far more high tech... We tie everything together with extra fuse...

It wasn't glaringly obvious on the replay. Took Dick'n'Bert 3 re-plays to notice. Dozier has to speak up there.

I am glad to hear that, and am redirecting my energy to the patient.

Let's hope that other teams realize that, before the trade deadline.

Pino seems to have had a great outing and the relievers are holding the line. Now let's get some runs and win this.

You take out the old floor? Man, I always leave it all down and it builds up, like Rome.

To state the obvious: Parmelee is 0-26 now with RISP.
