Good one. I'll finish up my recanting of the Reno/Sacremento curtain story by tacking on my one liner.


I'm the one who'll be doing the recanting, I'm pretty sure.

We can each tell our own version and she can select which one she likes best.

Dick says there's not much difference lefty-righty for Cano. Yes, he's hitting over .300 vs. lefties (.302 vs. .332 against RH). The OPS difference is .872 to .754, not exactly "no difference".

What does it say about the speed on our bench when Fryer is running for Morales?
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Some insurance runs would be nice.

Fryer flirting with being picked off. Smalley vexed. So that's bad.

I don't understand why they don't let the fastest pitcher run in that situation.

I still want an insurance run here.

39 year old Jamey Carroll pinch running for Plouffe some ninth inning last season was also memorable. And humiliating I'm sure.

Is it just me, or are the Twins seemingly barely clinging to a two-run lead in the 9th despite having a good bullpen?

Ok, me. But still...

I wish Escobar would crowd the plate more, to cover those outside pitches and maybe get HBP.

What does it say about our SS when the opposing pitcher is putting Chris friggin Colabello on to face him?

Yeah, it's weird that we don't have anyone faster than Fryer on the bench.

You know, I think Roy could be really good, but he needs a buddy in the biz to coach him up. I love the guy, but jeeze.

That was a heck of an over the shoulder catch by Nunez.

Think he can play CF?

Twins just need to get Bloomquist out for the SO.

I'm happy.

NOTHING is as creepy as the people in those jerky commercials with the bird, etc. coming out of their stomach.

What in the world were those ad creators thinking of?
