Well, that seems about right for a lawyer.


I don't know... But I'm betting Glunn is a Boxer guy.

He likes dogs.

I was a minister of silly walks.

Then Joe Mauer got called up.

How come no one is mentioning Dozier's hitting streak? He has an 11-gamer IIRC.

I have Gausman and it's playoff time. A complete game shut out would be OK with me. While deep down... I want the Twins to Win.

I'm so conflicted

I think it has been fixed for you...

 

Mauer did something about it, and wound up on third.

Mauer with a triple!!!

It took Delmon Young to get one.

Did anyone notice how he coasted around 1st until he noticed it was Delmon out there.

Joe could go for the extra base more... Not just when facing Delmon Young.

If I can correctly interpret what Gladden was trying to say just there, Mauer is only one double behind Rod Carew on the all-time team doubles list.That's pretty high ground.

You are correct on both counts.  Too bad that I have no more likes to give today.

Bremer is right. No way should all three runs be earned.

We used to do stuff like this in the improv classes I took.

I did an improv class one semester. The other people in the class were not very good and every scenerio ended up in a fake argument. Every single one... The teacher had to keep telling people... We don't have to get into an argument in every scenerio but it didn't help,

You're a Doctor and you are delivering a baby at the Supermarket. You are the mother and you are the guy stocking produce. GO!!!

Mother: Oh My God!!! My water Broke
Produce Guy: I'm not cleaning that up
Mother: Well get me a mop... It's not like I have anything better to do... How about... I throw this jar of Tomato Sauce... Will you clean that up?
Produce Guy: Drop that jar of Tomato sauce lady and I'll throw this cabbage at you.
Doctor: Hello I'm a doctor... Can I be of assistance?
Produce Guy: Yeah... Here's a Mop

I can't help myself but that broke so many rules of improv. I eventually stopped paying for classes. I never wanted to perform and then I thought why am I paying all this money to go to a class twice a week to sit around and act goofy and laugh. I can do that for free.

@#$%!!!

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
