Everybody sing
Sometimes I question my own behavior... Check it out... Talkin' about the girls that we've seen on the sly
Just to tell our souls we're still the young lions... So check it out

One thing about west coast games is that it's possible to check out the minor league games. Buxton broke his o-fer, Rosario got a hit and a walk and both Mauer and Hicks didn't play. Gilmartin pitched very well.

So... turns out the mystery team that claimed Cole Hamels wasn't the Twins.

I think that's what they call "pitching backwards"

I'd listen to them.

 

At least one song, if it wasn't too long.

Likely one inning to go. Will the game be over by midnight?

Those in the know call that a "pickoff throw to second".

I think Melvin thought Callaspo was the DH. He's played there more than second.

Easily.  The sun just went down in Oakland.
