LOL... As the Animals once sang... Please don't let me be misunderstood.

 

Btw ... it's not a matter of being misunderstood, it's just that I'm already lost in the house of the rising sun.

 

(Sorry I'm so late at responding to the reference ... I got it, but my mind is splintering in too many directions right now.)

Sigh................

I'm not going to like this.  I'm just going to say I get it and I'm there with you.  :/

If that happens and ash plays it correctly, then he will have a reason to avoid chores during the rest of the season.

It will not be Mrs. Ash's fault ... let's put blame here appropriately.  It's the Twins' fault ... theirs and theirs alone.

This is why spouses should not be allowed to attend Modcon.  Now they have an ally on the inside of our operation.

Lol ... maybe it's not about having an ally ... maybe I've just discovered I like them better?  ;)

Back to Warren Minnesota:

Ricky Nolasco has a 5.96 ERA and that cost 48 Million dollars.

In Warren... the Twins could have had a 11.92 ERA for 53 Million.

We're getting to the point where Nolasco is going to be on the list of worst big free agent deals. If he's going to pitch like this year, he isn't worth starting. I'm not sure what the management should do.

Everyone is so bored with the game... They have started to recycle past innings.

Try him in the bullpen.

Dear Minnesota Twins,

Comebacks are so much easier if you halt the other team from scoring. If you allow the other team to keep scoring. It'll be like chasing a moving target. I recommend halting that target and holding it in place.

Sincerely,

Riverbrian

Give it a few more starts.  An 11.92 ERA might seems like buying low.
