Just a few short games ago, I was one of those who thought the Twins were pretty much dead, desperately clinging to life. I thought the Twins were done to the point I expected the FO to do the following:

 

 

*Why is it that a comedy has a better representation of life in the Middle Ages than big budget Hollywood movies?

 

 

But, it shows you what I know, because lately, the Twins have decided to have the last laugh and show us they're not quite done yet:

 

 

*Trust me on this, the movie is far better than the book.

 

And, here we are, heading into All Star break and the Twins FO is probably wondering if anything they have to trade has value and if what they have that has value is should be traded. Never fear, though, I expect the FO will make smart decisions based on solid logic and reasoning:

 

 

*Opening scene sort reminds me of being a Twins fan this year. 

 

And now, for a musical interlude:

 

 

*Love the sparse arrangement of this song. And blame this on Vanimal. He introduced me to Ms. James.

 

Wrapping up the content, I leave you with the following:

 

spaceforrentdoggiekittie
 
*What's the matter with cute?
 
Some random observations from last night:
 
1. Salvador Perez: It's astonishing to watch a guy snatch a somewhat errant 97mph fastball out of the air. 
2. Baseball is cruel: Grossman hit a ball on the button for an out, Cave defends the plate and dumps one into left for a hit.
3. Berrios: All Star!
4. Molitor: Gave up the DH late in the game, which showed a bit of innovation. 
5. Wilson: Key hits in key spots? What in the world is going on?
 
Play ball!
 
Pitching for the Twins:
 
Right hander Aaron Slegers
 
Pitching for the Royals;
 
Right hander Ian Kennedy

Still striking out over 30% of the time with 1 HR, but also hitting .315.

It's like watching a mirror image of the Twins with RISP.

I'll take baby steps at this point. I don't want to see him up here again until the minor league season is done, if even then.

And many just want to take whatever offer they can get just to get Gordon reps

Not everyone that wants him traded because of Gordon. Some want him dealt because they won't re-sign him and they may as well get something for him.

I'd rather watch Dozier than read about some long shot org filler.If they deal him, it better be for something that will help the big club within a year.

He didn't get cheated on that.

Not was the sun a factor.
