Hey, don't forget the jinx I put on him. I called him mediocre.

We're all guilty, on occasion, of viewing Twins players through rose colored glasses.

Judging by recent game threads...no. No, it's not.


I think I just saw a few tumbleweeds roll through here.

I'm no Deduno backer, but that was a pretty curveball for strike 3. (Immediately after a 59-footer.)

"Deduno strikes out the side and leaves two men in scoring position." Pretty good summary of Deduno's style by our PBP guy.

Oh, give me hits, lots of hits under starry skies above
Don't call me out
Let me run through the bases of the ballparks that I love
Don't call me out

Let me try for an extra base in the evenin' breeze
And listen to the cheers of the crowd if you please
Send me off to Rochester but I ask you please
Don't call me out

/ tumbleweeds and such, you know

Did my ears decieve me, or did Dick just vaguely intimate he wasn't thrilled with the idea of a sacrifice bunt?

EDIT: deceive.

I don't want any more high draft picks. Look what harm they are causing Houston.


Another Buxton could be nice.

Also, if Einstein was so smart, how did he get the i-before-e rule wrong *twice*?

He was from a parallel universe where that's the norm and where the Twins are still in contention.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

And Plouffe still only ends up on third. This is a station-to-station team.

Arcia seems to have a weakness for fastballs that are outside and high. And the Rays seem to be exploiting that weakness a lot.

Every player on the Twins 40-man roster seems to have committed unspeakable crimes in past lives and is now suffering their karmic punishment. And the Rays seem to be exploiting that weakness a lot.

Works like a charm...once every third month or so.
