Some one pointed out that we just passed the 40 game mark. Half way through the first half of the season. Zeno would be proud. If he knew about Major League Baseball.

I am taking a cue and writing half of a game thread intro. The good half, i hope.

When i finish my parade, maybe i'll write the other half?

Only one way to find out.

Things to think about.

1. Winning. I'm positive about this. It takes thinking to win.

2. Numbers. It helps to have more.

3. Bingo... It's nice song, eh? How do you sing it backwards? _ _ _ GO!

Twins

Kyle Gibson ( R)

1. Jorge Polanco (S) SS
2. Jonathan Schoop (R ) DH
3. C.J. Cron (R ) 1B
4. Eddie Rosario (L) LF
5. Willians Astudillo (R ) C
6. Miguel Sano (R ) 3B
7. Ehire Adrianza (S) RF

Cleveland is blanking Baltimore 7-0 late in the game today, looks like the Twins won't be gaining any ground. Motivation for a sweep!

This is about the worst lineup Rocco can throw out there, and it is still a scary lineup vs a left hander.

Career Game Thread Record: 18-6

 

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success

So wise folk of TD. I ain't been paying attention.

How's this Luis Arraez fellow?

And i've heard of this Sano, but for a while... Pretty atheletic as i recall?

After careful screening of the announced line-ups plus error prone calculation using proprietary formulas cleverly devised by a slightly inebriated quasi-gentleman of German-Irish descent, said calculations further refined by blindfolded dart throwing by the same quasi-gentleman using either hand, I put the over/under for this titanic clash at 4 runs for the Twins.

 

I might be over. But I could be under the coffee table.

There once was a man from Woonsocket

Who had a mouse in his pocket

They talked about Rocco

And ate a few tacos

Didn't run the parade but they walked it
