Looking good in the third inning. The season has been a lesson on the sin of Pride, however. And perhaps a few of the other capital vices.

I'd love this post if I could

1. Parkay or Butter?

2. Skim or Whole milk?

3. Cheese or Cheez Whiz?

4. Coke or Pepsi?

 

How can you post these choices and omit the most important choice in history?

 

Ginger or Mary Ann?

 

(As everyone knows, the answer is yes. Or both.)

Kepler really hustles on a no-hope infield out. Love that.

Do you feel jinxed, or trolled, when you encounter unbridled optimism? :)

Sano has such poor bat control on those check-swings. He looked genuinely surprised at that strike call from the first base umpire.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.

It's good to see another old-fashioned blowout in favor of the Twins. Here's hoping for at least 3 wins in this series!
