No Hammer.  Perhaps a trade has been made?  Too much to hope for.

I found out that student day isn't restricted to students from Minnesota. I'm not at the game today, but I'll remember that for future reference.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Good deal, Tibs.

 

I wonder if Brian didn't realize it was an afternoon game?  Not like him to not have something in there at this point.

Frankly, I like the suspense.

Yeah Plouffe! Seems like he hasn't hit a homer in a while.

Another Century Link ® stolen base.

 

I'd hate to have to say that every time a base is stolen.  It must be rough for Danny G.

And then Gladden just compared Buxton to Plouffe and Parmelee.  Ugh.

Another missed scoring opportunity. The baseball gods will not like our refusing their hospitality.

And Kenny scores!!!  

 

I'm listening on the radio.  Can anyone provide some details on Escobar's hit?  Sounded like a nice little line drive.  

 

edit: I originally called Eddie's hit a double.  I guess it was ruled a single.
