Wonder what Carew would have hit is he played half his games in Coors Field?

How did Cuddy break his shoulder. dude is a klutz.


Would it be trite to suggest it happened while performing a card trick?

Remember when he tripped halfway between 2nd and 3rd, flipped and fell on his helmet?

[quote name='JB_Iowa']First, I am grateful for the earlier start time than the last four nights. Thank you, Rockies for going earlier than 7:10 MTN.

Second, as much some Twins fans complain about the Pohlads, I don't think Jim has ever actually said, "if the product and experience are that bad, don't come" although obviously the Pohlads did talk about moving the club.

Did you forget Carl agreeing to contract the Twins for a fat check from Bud and MLB?

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Leading to total domination over Detroit and Chicago for really fun years, until we mess ourselves at the feet of the Yankees.

Sorry I was confusing moving and contracting.

For the team? or fans?


Yes.

Though in theory, being professionals, baseball players have character...

Glad to see Johnson only give up 1 run in the second.

Dozier had 12 steals on May 11. So ... in the last two months (doing the math) he has had 4 steals. That's 2 a month, an average 12 for an entire year. What happened? What happened?

Wish the Twins hit those kinds of pop-ups, Dick!

Cuddyer reminds me of David Justice, who would make an awkward, non-athlete play in the field or on the basepaths at least once a year that would result in missed time.

But even Cuddyer's weird calamities will never top Moises Alou's mega-awesome "I was standing in the outfield, and I heard something pop" injury.

Wait another inning. If past performance is any indicator, Johnson will probably get around to walking your dog too pretty soon.

But you'll miss the final chapter of Kris Johnson:Major Leaguer.

To his credit, Johnson hasn't issued any walks yet.

He's been relying on his defense. Alas, Molitor can't shift a player into the stands...

At least the dog will enjoy the game!

That looked really bad. I'd hate to see Suzuki go down. We don't exactly have much depth here.
