We put a man on the moon 45 years ago but Dozier can't find a cup that fits.

 

Bad engineering.

Brian are you keeping an eye on where the infielders are playing?

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

LOL... Seriously... I normally do. Tonight... I'm flipping too much. Vikes... Gophers... Twins...

I'm sure Dozier is back by the wall again.

Except that it is 2-2 so unless Tommy is going to bat, he's gonna need help!

So weird.  There was a tornado on the ground about an hour away -- and we're not even in any kind of watch.

 

Very humid thought but not all that hot.

You'd need really good binoculars to watch that one.

The difference in the running game between the Twins and Royals includes who is behind the plate.Perez can make up for good jumps against Royals' pitchers, while Suzuki can't.

I'm immune from them anyway.  Lived most of my life in Iowa .... never saw a true funnel cloud.  I've seen wedge clouds but never saw one drop.

Suzuki looks like he can hardly move tonight.

When Younger... I once said on the radio... "A tornado warning has been issued for (blank) county". You are advised to take shelter immediately... If no shelter is available... Head to your basement... Or an interior hallway... Stay away from windows... Mobile homes should be abandoned... If you see a tornado... Don't touch it... Leave it alone... They don't like to be handled and sometimes react violently to human contact.

The next morning... My boss chewed my ass out for the leave it alone comment.

It might be a wee bit early for this, but I actually don't want to see Tommy Milone in the 2015 starting rotation.

 

Then again, it'll probably be either him or Pelfrey. Ugh.

I recently attempted to calculate WAR in the NFL over on Purple Pain forums. Click here to check out my article.

I don't know what's going on but the Gophers are playing football on the Vikings field.

I wouldn't call that immune.  I'd call that ... you're due.
