Just what we want you to think....


Will the invasion start from Manitoba or Ontario or Alberta?

Nunavut ... going the other direction until they come back to us ... because that's a real surprise attack.

Hope other GM's were paying attention: Hammer and Suzuki had great games- better deal now!

Like I'm telling you, North Dakota Nuke overlord.

That's right, Alaska first, capture Palin ingratiating ourselves to sane Americans everywhere and then head down the coast to California unsuspected.

You're on to us Chi, don't have any Beaver tails unless someone else tastes them first.

No ... I meant ... over the top ... and down the other side to the other pole, then up through S America before us ... oh, never mind.

If Buxton has another wrist injury, right or left, I going to need to try heroin. That hobby would be less hurtful to my body and heart.

Nice win, the Twins really needed this one. Now 4 games over .500 against the AL Central, with the next 12 games against them it would be very prudent if they could move that record to about 10 over .500 against them by the end of it ;)

Glad to see Johnson pitch well, I think he has certainly earned another start. I'm sure some of the masses will bemoan that May/Meyer aren't up for his start, but those two guys will get a crack at Correia's spot when he is very likely traded.

Like I mentioned, you can never have enough good pitching, guys like Pino/Johnson can become our 5th/6th pitcher types if need be next year:

Hughes
Meyer
Gibson
Nolasco
May
........
Johnson/Pino

That would be incredibly unlucky - the chances that a Minnesota team would have that kind of bad luck are practically........

Heroin -- you can do that without needles now can't you? I don't think I could do needles.

Correia also gave up no runs tonight; he can be acquired for reasonable terms as well.

I am not sure people on Twins Daily planning invasions is a good idea. I see it going very, very wrong.

Nice win; Twins' lack of hats for bats made up for by opportunistic hitting and bad baserunning...

Try Frasier re-runs. Have it on good authority that it's sort of like methadone for Cheers addicts...
