Can we line centerfield with bubble wrap or My Pillows? I like Buxton, but didn't Favre once play a game with a broken finger in a much more physical sport? I said it. I guess he is the Jordy Nelson of the league. Sorry BB. Bring Smeltzer back as a starter or stick Trevor May out there (congrats on that win)!

 

You forgot our newest shiny option for CF for the next 10 days?

 

Brandon Barnes just went yard for Rochester, hitting his 25th HR of the season and now OPSing near .900.

Some day! That would be a hoot. My wife says I spend too much time on these blogs. "They're my friends!" I tell her. She: "No they're not. Not one of them will show up for your funeral." I say to you all, prove my wife wrong and come pay your respects when my time comes. And, yes, you're all in the will.

Pregame guys gushing about Nathan (rightfully so) and saying the trade for him might be the best in Twins history (later revising it to most one-sided).I'd throw out there the Viola for Aguilera/Tapani/West trade was much better.

 

How you gonna forget Tim Drummond? C'mon man.

Because he has a lifetime OPS of .467 vs. Danny Duffy?


What is the sample size?

I hope Danny Duffy is beat around the yard by the Twins. Ever since that display a couple of years ago, I've not liked him.

I assume there will be a "Circus Boy Update" to notify us of the date and time. Also, some consideration should be taken to plan this event in late summer so I can combine it with a trip to the Black Hills. :).

Not sure I'll be sticking around for the game tonight, end of a 6 day work week and some family time, etc.

But I'm sitting here listening to the Joe Nathan Twins HOF induction and literally getting chills from the list of inductees there. Wow! The men and the memories!

Expect to see Buxton on the IL more and more throughout his career, because the wall willl always win

5 singles in 23 ABs with 8 Ks probably made for an easy decision for Rocco to give Eddie the night off and save him for possible PH duty.

For those not watching or listening, after the awesome introduction of all the HOF inductees there, Cuddyer was the opening speaker to introduce Nathan and knocked it out of the park. Nathan fighting tears thanking and speaking about everyone, after joking about the rain delaying and spending his career working the 9th, so waiting a little longer didn't matter. Lol

Also made a joke about Cuddyer doing a great job, and he was a closer, so thsnk you and I'm out. Lol. Almost wish he could of stuck with that and dropped the mic. Lol

So I'm watching the pregame Joe Nathan ceremony and I think Johann Santana looks great! I liked him back in the day. Maybe he could come work for the Twins as a pitching coach? Anyone know what he is doing now?

Realized the fans were even better than he knew when he returned wearing a gray uniform on his return to the Twin Cities and was so warmly received. (Still fighting tears)

Can't watch the MLB package games against the Royals due to living in Omaha. Nothing against the Royals broadcast team, but like I did last night, I'd rather just listen to Dan and Cory on the radio broadcast. Of course, before this crazy "internet" thing came around, I spent about 40+ years listening to 57.0 WNAX out of Yankton SD for my Twins fix, including HORRIBLE late night static on west coast games on car radio, home system and transistor radios.

Not sure this internet thing is going to stick, but I sure like it so far.
