Today, I thought I'd check in, and see how the Twins are faring in the standings:

 

 

Surprise Surprise, the Twins are in first place in the Central. However, it is March, March 15th to be exact and, the long-time nemesis for the Twins are in town.

 

 

Of course, it appears the Jays are trending down right now, though they do play in the AL East.

 

Having watched the Twins early in the season, I've yet to figure out if the Twins are finding ways to win or if their opponents are finding ways to lose. Maybe a little of A and a little of B?

 

No matter, the Twins lead the Central and have a respectable record.

 

Pitching for the Twins:

 

Martin Perez

 

Pitching for the Blue Jays:

 

Matt Shoemaker. 

 

Play ball!

Excited to see Perez own his own game. High hopes he shows he can be counted on for quality.

Crud, tried to do a riff on the Ides of March and screwed up.

 

With any luck, a mod will notice and fix it.

Yo, would you mind editing "March 15" to be "April 15?"

 

Thanks.

April has ides too...

Not sure if it is the 15th though...

Just no one really cares any more about the ides. I'd care... if i had to.

Anyway, just ate the free food after one Patriot's day parade. Off to another one...

Oh, you meant the first post?

 

Then, no.

 

It's a game thread. The typo is too good to clean up. Own it. :)

I already did and now want a refund.

 

But, I guess "you broke it you bought it" applies.

Sorry... i had to respond just so i could see how one kept
(R) from becoming a copyright symbol.  Does it also preserve 2 spaces after a period?

What other miracles might this box perform?
I may never know...
