Pulling hard for Gibson tonight. The talent is there, and he's a great guy. Really want to see him pull it together and stick.

Side note. We live in Minnesota. What is the game thread title in pacific time, with central time parenthasised? Just curious.

Unless the weather is wretched, how can a day at the ballpark not be better than a day not at the ballpark?


Maybe it's different there, but here in SW Minnesota, it might be the most perfect weather day of the year.

A lot of us don't live in Minnesota.i think it's posted that way to calibrate for the higher levels of 'bounce' we have here in California.

It sure seems to me that a defensive specialist catcher should not be letting that pitch get by him.

Ok, it's a Minnesota thread. I find it hard to believe the majority are pacific time.

Really not a big deal. Observation from a proud Minnesotan who didn't sell out and move to east/west coasts after college (please don't take that seriously).

It's actually a very nice night out tonight. Being at the game tonight would have been much nicer than yesterday, but I still opted out. I'll go tomorrow and Thurs.

See my post about lefty/righty splits vs. Giolito. Love getting more lefty at bats. Especially because I imagine that Adrianza is a better OF than Garver.

My bad, I had the splits backwards...

I would still like to see Garver play more, but this does make more sense.

Gibson just can't get any major league players out now.

That's not a ground ball, it's a ground bat.
