According to the Royals' announcers, the Twins will land in Baltimore after 4:30 a.m. I wish that I knew a bookie so I could bet on tomorrow's game.

Yeah I know... They will be so tired... Gardy won't be able to think and outsmart himself.

Twins Win!!!

Nunez needs to play more.

There are several regular posters here calling for his DFA. After his first AB, I felt inclined to join them. He brings something to the table, and he gets some XBHs. I think he's a good bench option.

It's not easy to catch, but the kid in the commercial is wearing a White Bear Lake t-shirt!My hometown.

 

Edit: That was supposed to contain the quote of Chief's about the McDonalds commercial.

Cue Beatles, "A Day in the Life"...

 

"Woke up, got outta bed, saw the Twins were now ahead..."

 

I almost always miss the end of games because I drift off around the 7th inning. So I assumed Royals magic would chalk up another win for them. Pleased to see us put it away in extras. Gosh, I hope they play winning baseball the rest of the way, so they have something good to show heading into the off-season.

 

Cheers to all. And Mr. Glunn, not sure what happened, but hope all's well.
