I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he wants to win the game. If it was a little more tilted one way or another I think we may have seen one of the new guys

Hey look, Schafer's caught in his second rundown of the game.How many Twins have made 2 outs on the bases without attempting to steal?That's got to be a small number.

I like aggressive base running but I gotta draw the line at... blind and I can't hear my coaches either type aggressive base running.

He's just trying to get after it.

And here comes Casey Fien. I would really like to put Oliveros in this situation, personally.

At the time, I was really surprised we got Millone for Sam Fuld.I thought Ryan had really fleeced Beane.Now...not so much.I don't want Fuld back, but maybe releasing him would have been a better idea.

But he has to be better than this. He has to be. He will be.

But the faceplant, 3 ft short of home plate, without there even being a play there, wouldn't have been nearly as humorous.

He hesitated at third. If he had just kept running it would have been close.

5 hits, 4 walks, 3 ER, yanked in the 4th and bacon saved by Swarzak.Not an impressive job.

All right, whoever picked Chief in the pool for "who's the first person to quote lyrics from My Sharona", please come to the courtesy counter to collect your prize.

I was thinking about going with Chief on that...

But I placed my bet on Bark coming up with. "Crimson and Milone" ... Crystal Blue Milone-tion" or "Draggin' the Line"

You don't even have to alter "Dragging the Line".
