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.

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.

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