Wait, Willingham bunted? You are all trolling me, right?

Bill Smith made the call for the bunt from the executive suite.

It's still 35-15.  I had already written this one off with the blown save.  Playoffs, her we come.  Bwahhhaahhaaah.,  (Cue lab coats & straight jacket.)

Willingham bunting.......and people want Gardy to be the manager? Really? Ugh.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)

Don't understand why Gardenhire pinch ran Nunez for Plouffe putting him in the 3 hole as a batter. I know he didn't anticipate Nunez needing to bat but alas that is what happened. Sometimes I swear Gardenhire overmanages and out-thinks the game instead of letting the game happen and flow. He sure does like to make a lot of moves, him and Bud Black are two peas in a pod.

Well, poo.  Can't win them all.  That's why they play 162 games.  (Insert other baseball cliche here).   

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

In case someone was serious, Hammer didn't pinch hit. It was Schaefer who bunted. Gardy did use Nunez to run for Plouffe and Nunez stole second to get into scoring position.

Don't use facts. Facts are just plain evil. They weigh the same as a duck, and should be burned.

I didn't mind that Willingham was trying to bunt, but bunting with two strikes!? ;)

Yep... I didn't know it was a day game? I was busy at work... Had my head down... Straight into the wall.

And since it's at Oakland, you'll have plenty of time to come up with 10 things to think about to make up for it! ;)

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

Phew, thanks......I feel better now. Not good, but better.
