Interesting. Dick said Garza's major league debut was 11 years ago today.

Is it okay if i just flip the same coin multiple times?

The need to flip a coin while in the bathroom would seem problematic per se.

A word to the wise is sufficient, but who can remember the word?

I got 76%. Didn't realize it was 2016 because the title said 2017. Had 30 seconds to go when I realized.

Sorry about that, I mixed the year up. Stupid me!

I doubt Rosario gets that anyway. That being said, that route should have been set to yakety sax.

The exact same thing happened last game Mejia pitched, with both him and Mauer going for a bunt and no one covering.

I wish our guys could bunt like that. Hell, I wish they could just bunt in fair and not in the air!

Rosario hit the cut off man! I don't believe it. Maybe he is sick.

Hey, they left the juicehead on third. Good for them.

 

Still looking for a bit more efficiency out of Mejia.

You mean the Twins allowed just a single run in an inning? Feels like Christmas!

Does anyone else see Kepler kind of picking up a few Mauer-isms at the plate? Inside ball, pull the hands in close to the body and watch it into the catcher's mitt, head down...

Joe West should be suspended for the rest of his career.

I think he Keples as well as anyone in baseball!

Triples are more fun than home runs; stolen bases are more fun than strikeouts; singles are more fun than walks.

Excuse me: I've never Keppled, and this is a family site.
