Anyone here interested in the inner workings of Mac computers? Unfortunately, since I'm trying to get some Mac's to behave, I'm having trouble thinking beyond ssh, scp and Linux. How any of that ties into baseball is anyone's guess. And it certainly bodes ill for a baseball thread.

 

Baseball threads should be newly mowed grass, hot dogs, beverages, alcoholic or otherwise, with the occasional wisecrack thrown in.

 

Maybe a musical interlude will liven things up:

 

 

Pitching for the Twins: Gibson

Pitching for St. Louis: Rosenthal

Play ball!!

Another televised game ... at least for me it is, with the MLB package; and on the radio. I wonder if they will do it like yesterday's game ... one Twins announcer, one Cards announcer ... because I really like when they do that.

Who's calling the game for the Twins? Bremer?

You know, you're more than welcome to put up your own game thread, right? Shouldn't be entirely up to Chitown and myself. :)

Gotta save my A material for the regular season! Whine Line Game Thread Edition is hopefully going to start out on fire! Literally!

You have "A" material? Where have you been hiding it?

I think it's starting the year in AAA getting every day reps until my veteran C material becomes ineffective.

I just tuned in ... definitely Bremer. I think it's the same two as yesterday ... and don't remember who that was for the Cards.

As a Twins fan, aren't you supposed to have some aging over-the-hill veteran material?

Scoreless after 1.

 

Top half: ground out, ground out, 2 walks, pop up out.

 

Bottom half: walk, flyout (to center), strikeout, flyout (to LF).

 

This is your Circus Boy update.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

And a soft flare by Adrianza has 2 on with 2 outs. (Cards announcer mentioned Rosenthal is working on a cutter, or something. I guess pitchers do work on things during ST games. Huh.)

End of 2, and still no score. Gibby put the cards down in order in the bottom of the 2nd.

Could be? He only pitched 2 innings ... Cards have a new pitcher in for the 3rd.
