Not a good inning for the Twins, unless you take draft order into account.

I vote Nolasco stays in for the rest of the game.  He's killed this bullpen long enough.

 

 

--edit--and, as seems to happen a lot lately, Gardy disagrees with me.  And who's coming in?  Some young gun who needs game experience?  Nope, Swarzak.  Yesterday?  Duensing and Burton.  I vote to give Pressly some more chances.  Instead Gardy probably wants Guardado back.

Carnac: "2 bucks in labor"

Ed: That sounds like a bargain.  I just took my Mercedes in for a tune-up and....

Carnac: Really? That's the best you can come up with?
Ed: Forgive me for any lack of eloquence.  Evidently I am once again overwhelmed by your radiance.

Carnac: A flashlight with worn out AA batteries would also do the trick.

Ed: You do yourself a disservice, your Magnific--- hey, waitaminnit!

Carnac: You're quick.

Ed: May a bad person come and do a bad thing to you.

Carnac: Leave the mythic curses to me, for your own good.

Ed: Would you be so kind, then, as to open the envelope?

Carnac: What happens soon after, to a couple of male deer after their sex-change operations?

LOL... I'm just saying... Warren Minnesota is a special place.

The Warren Municipal Liquor Store: Case of Bud Light $15.99... Bud Light Keg with Tap $17.99.

I just googled "Warren Municipal Liquor Store" and your post was on the second page of hits.  Google seems to be watching this thread.

I wonder what the most runs given up for 9 innings of work.

There has to be a time... At least once... Where a manager walked out to the mound and said... "Screw this" you're staying in... Finish the game and we are flying you out to Charlotte in the morning.

Do you see the ad behind home plate?  "Ollie's Bargain Outlet"?  That's a little non-traditional.  I wonder if they have an outlet in Warren MN?

 

AND SWARZAK COMES THROUGH!!! Geez, there goes Nolasco's ERA.

 

Looking forward to 2015!

It should be easy since There isn't a Warren Municipal Liquor Store.

Well, he wouldn't have gotten to hit off our staff so it wouldn't have worked out that well for him.

 

Anthony- just start hitting guys.  That way it's only one base at a time.

For two dollars more, we can have a doubleheader.

Unfortunately, if you buy the doubleheader they then offer you the memory wipe for $3,000.

You can see the "give up" in the Twins body language pretty clearly today, no?

 

That's why we need some new management, IMO.

Agreed, and that's why I want to leave the players in Rochester as long as humanly possible.  I have not been anti-Gardy at all (not necessarily pro, but not anti), but he's completely lost me here at the end of the year.  He's managing like a guy who can't wait to retire.

 The good thing is with the same front office and coaching staff coming back we can expect more of this next year.

 

Sorry this is making me sad. :banghead:

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)
