To quote my boss: finish the Job or you're fired.

And it looks like the job has been done.

WINNAH!!!

Feels like we STOLE one!


True...but it actually seemed like the Twins should have scored several runs throughout the game. It was all just karma.

And we got a runner in from second with no outs!

Next that, a win seems but a molehill.

Polanco almost hit too hard, there.

I would've had Kepler bunt there, myself. But, it worked out just the same.

That was a nice win. Good rebound after quite a few mistakes costing them good scoring opportunities early. Hopefully this sparks another hot streak.

I feel great for Vargas. A moment like that after his rollercoaster career to this point has to feel great.

It sure seems like the Royals are trying to lose these games.

I recently attempted to calculate WAR in the NFL over on Purple Pain forums. Click here to check out my article.

Given history, it almost seems like Gordon would have doubled Mauer off on that one.

Almost definitely if he was able to get behind the throw

Is it too early to say something like "that's one day closer to Berrios' next start?

Wow, beautiful setup, just as Torii said. High fastball inside, then a curve that broke from the knee to the plate.

Baseball is easy. Just watch!

Y'know, I was kind of hoping the Twinks would snap up Al Albuquerque over the winter.

 

I can say now, I'm glad he's on our side!
