Good morning, everyone! The weekend is upon us. And we all know what that means. Yes, it's time to not work at work and work around the house. While working on house maintenance may be the lesser of two evil, remember, the lesser of evils is still evil. 

 

The Twins will tussle with the Rays today. 

 

Mr. Hughes will start for the Twins while Mr. Ramirez will start for the Rays.

 

The crack mod staff has put up the thread volunteer requests. Being the kind and generous person I am, I volunteered a lot of Twins regulars for game threads. Just trying to make life a bit easier for you. You'll soon know who you are and thank me for relieving you of the burden of trying to avoid, I mean, deciding which series to write for. 

 

Some things to think about:

 

1. I got nothing.

2. More nothing.

3. Ummm

4. Hmmm, well, umm

5. And yeah, then there's that thing.

 

Play ball!!

Just think of me as your recently divorced game threadin' dad... You'll only see once a month on the weekends, and others will have to keep you company the rest of the month!

Heh ... if you want to get around that, put a space between the R and one of the parentheses. It's the same when people use B ), but without the space after the B to get B)

 

But if you like the symbols and emojis, then don't worry about it. :)

I think it's funny, which is why I leave the formatting alone. I probably won't during the regular season.

I think I'm the only one who changes it because, well, I'm all serious and stuff. But everyone else likes it and leaves it. Completely at the thread starter's perogative. :)

Update: Solo homerun from Jorge Polanco in 2nd; three-run homer from Brian Dozier (scoring Stubbs and Buxton) in third. 

 

Twins up 4-0 in Bottom of 3rd.

 

Phil Hughes has given up one hit, zero walks, one strikeout.

No velocity readings, but two strikeouts in 3 innings of work. For what it's worth.

I think that's worth something ... just how much, we'll see in time.

Hmm, the final line has Hughes with 4 srikeouts in 5 innings. Not bad.

Did Buddy Boshers really throw 3 pitches to get through the 8th inning?

Cool. Maybe he'll pitch again next week.

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