Quite a few years ago, "The Who" came up with what was probably the first rock opera, which they wrote and recorded. "Tommy" was performed quite a few times until one day, Roger Daltry, at a live performance, said this was the last time "The Who" would perform "Tommy." At which point, the late late Keith Moon jumped up from behind his drum kit and hollered, "Thank God."

 

I mention this, as this is my swan song for game threads this year. And, I expect the Twins Daily crowd is jumping up and collectively shouting, "Thank God!"

 

Seriously, though, it's been a great ride and I hope I've been able to make a few people laugh. Or, at least politely clap.

 

It's been fun and you've all been a great audience! Try the veal and tip your waitress!

End of the top of the first. Same result as last night. I guess the Twins did not learn from theRoyals last night how to advance a runner from second base so he will score. PITIFUL! The Twins are playing sloppy baseball. I think I'll turn this game off and go for a walk in Hurricane Florence.

This reminds me of a spring training game, but without the hope of a regular season to come.

In looking through the position player lineup at the newer acquisitions, is there anyone that may have a future with the Twins?

Ugh. As soon as the grill is in the shade, I'm ditching this game and firing it up.

I really like Astudillo's approach to each at bat and his enthusiasm. Even though he is not playing today he is active in encouraging the other players.

Great hustle by Austin there, but he was lucky not to be hurt.

Looked like he landed fairly square on his back but, it looked like hips meeting the barricade might have been where things really hurt. Either way, ouch!
