This thread needs more Metallagher.

I still have not received my indecent exposure citation from that concert. Had a blast though.

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.

Yeah, the lyrics sort of struck me that way, and by the fact you gave your age away a few days ago, I am sure you are as striking as the day you were twenty.:)


Fortunately I was only about 13 when the TV show and song were popular. I think my brain remembers the teenage trivia best.

And in other Twins news items, Meyer is replacing May at the Futures game, Sano has been cleared to begin a throwing program, and Nolasco is having an MRI on his elbow tomorrow.

Gardy: Ricky, do you want to go to Rochester for awhile?
Nolasco: uh, no....
Gardy: Well then... your elbow is hurting
Nolasco: What?
Gardy: It's been hurting for some time, but you thought you could pitch threw it...
Nolasco: uh, that's right Gardy.
Gardy: And you think you should have a MRI....
Nolasco: I do? I mean.....I think I should have a MRI
Gardy: And you probably be out for.......
Nolasco: 2 weeks?????
Gardy: 6 weeks
Nolasco: I mean 6 weeks
Gardy:If you have any questions, talk to Pelfrey, OK
Nolasco: gee.....thanks Gardy!

I liked him better in True Lies.

Nolasco: And that screen door... I should let it hit me, or not let it hit me, on my way out?

Gardy: It's worse than I thought if you get hit by a screen door.

Joking aside, I hope Nolasco does what he has to to figure it out.

For extra cred, let the screen door hit you on the elbow.

OK, here's the philosophical conundrum for the ages: if Pedro Florimon stepped up to the plate against Ricky Nolasco, would there be a hit, an out, or rain delay?

Nooooooo! The sledgehammer needs the TC logo (perhaps with a #16 uni), the melon needs a Mariners' insignia.

My belief is that baseball would die in this proposed scenario.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Per Dick:

Iwakuma has never given up an earned run to the Twins in his career.


I've heard better news.

In other news, a 3.2 earthquake two hours ago northeast of Carson City registered as a quick bump here at Tahoe.
