OK... 10 thoughts are done... I have accepted my deserved punishment for not realizing it was a day game yesterday. 

 

Everyone read them so it wasn't for naught. 

 

I'll join the Game Thread later.

I'm happy to see that Vargas has been in the lineup consistently. It's good to see the management trust a young player like him.

 

I'm also wondering who's going to be sent down tomorrow. Colabello will likely be sent down either for a starting pitcher tomorrow or for Mauer on Monday.

So we get 20 thoughts today (or is it only 19) -- math was never my strong subject.

 

Now you are a couple of days ahead, RB!!

I think there was a Star Trek episode where Spock was given too much great knowledge at once and it drove him to madness.  I would hate for anyone to be driven insane by too much of Brian's wisdom and secrets of the universe.

 

So how did they save Spock?I think we should be prepared...

Hard to say.I think there's such a thing as a compound thought, made up of lot's of little thoughts.

 

Whatever it is.I'm happy.And i like the phrase "3 sheets to the wind..." even though i'm too lazy to look up how it got 'bout...

The origin is from sailing.... 4 sheets is good because it's balanced and the ship will sail straight. 3 sheets to the wind is when you try to sail and forget to use a boat.

Roy babbles but he does know hitting. Morris knows pitching. I can live with either. After so many years of Bert, I am tired of his act.

And, by my reckoning, for what it's worth, we start out ahead by 10 thoughts!

10 thoughts... Those were good. Too much thinking though.

The Twins face both Lester and Kazmir in this series. Colabello should get a couple of chances to hit this weekend. Unless he has a great series or someone gets hurt, he is gone.

Oh, I like listening to Roy, in doses. He just can ramble and say the same thing 3 different ways in one sentence..

Twins hitters have had a little better luck vs. left-handed hurlers. That said, they are facing some tough guys this weekend.
