If Dyson gets on, it's an automatic double.

One-oh-one on the radar gun.


Ninety nine would be just fine
Ninety eight the swings still late
Eighty four and Milone needs more.

You inspired me String!!!

As usual, Grandmaster Gardy is several moves ahead of us novices.

Go Twins!

If Dyson gets on, it's an automatic double.

But instead, it's "Grab some bench".  Ruthlessly efficient inning from Burton.

Is it bad that I'm rooting for the Yankees to win and the Twins to lose?

This is the type or game that contenders almost always win against non-contenders.

I'll take Animals you can eat without shoes for 400 Alex.

The scary thing is that RB is even funnier in person.

Gardy is the Grandmaster???

Interesting... That must be how the Furious Five got their name.

Just back from dinner ... looks like I missed a well-pitched game?  Or good defense?  Or both?  I'll leave the offense out of this discussion for now.

 

And Willi ... if you are going to have a dude with a big hammer in your avatar, at least you could've chosen Chris Hemsworth as Thor.  :)  <chrishemsworthswooooooooon>

May or may not be safe for work.

I think of the Dart as the Phoebe Cates of automobiles.  Not the fastest and not the most beautiful, but an ideal companion who would turn a desert island into Paradise.
