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.

Looks like a good day to be at a baseball game

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.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

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