Good job, Gibson.

Got away with two center cut FBs to Olson, we will take it.

Continuing on with this theme, some things to think about:

1. Batman TV series: Seriously good fun or seriously campy?
2. The better joker: Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson or Cesar Romero?
3. Best Batman: Adam West, Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, Christian Bale or Val Kilmer?
4. Best Penguin: Burgess Meredith or Danny DeVito?

Pitching for the Twins:

Kyle Gibson

Pitching for Oakland:

Mike Fiers

5. Play Ball!

0) Brilliant
1) FUN!
2) Ledger
3) Keaton
4) Merideth
5) OK! I love playing ball!

Better than nibbling.

Isn't it?

Hey look so did I. And I didn't notice it until your post caused me to look at my last post. It's just a number, no more significant than 1,999 or 2,001.

Our runners should try to steal bases. We can't always expect for the pitching staff giving up 3 runs or 4 runs.

I will allow that some numbers are significant, but the number of posts one has is not.

We have a pathetic 11 SB outside of Buxton... I don't know if we have anyone who can reliably steal bases outside of him, as it isn't worth getting runners caught stealing IMO. 

 

Oh, and also outside of Buxton we have 12 CS. That's not even a 50% steal clip!

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

So when they get thrown out we can read about how stupid Rocco is for wasting outs on the base paths?
