I’m fine if Eddie makes the 3rd out in the next several innings as well.

Yeah, great RISP hitting and a bit of luck! I was getting sick of scoring only by HRs. Now let's get 7 innings from Maeda and add on some more runs after the 3rd inning!

That kind of running the bases doesn’t tire Miguel out as much!

The game has been on but I wasn't paying attention even during the 5-run inning. Until I heard Dick's call on the Sano home run. I rewound to look at it, and it is literally awesome to see someone big and strong and talented doing that to a ball pitched by a major league pitcher. You didn't need to see the flight of the ball. Just watching him swinging and hitting the ball was all that was necessary.

Maeda looks locked in. I think he's going deep into this game.

Especially if it ends with a double and a run scored.

Hate to break it to you, 'sporto, but I'm pretty sure you won't be watching the Twins tomorrow. Off day.

If it's any consolation, I have jokes older than 50.

I apologize for posting this late today but I got stuck on a conference call at work and couldn't get them to hang up. By the way, tomorrow I'm turning 49 years old.  Somehow I just woke up one day and realized I'm going to be almost 50! Where did the time go? If any of you have hit 50 does it feel weird? I probably have more years behind me than I do in front of me (hopefully not but that whole Covid thing is hanging over our heads)...
 

Happy Birthday! As someone who is closer to 60 than 50, do not fear. 50s are great, especially as those pesky college children become adults. Seeing them eye-to-eye as adults is one of the great joys in life. It technically may not be a cocktail, but I will raise a glass to you tomorrow.

Dang, that was a pretty good pitch down and away, but Buxton still crushed it. Everything is going right today!

Honestly, Byron. Can you hit it into the gap rather than over the wall? I want to see you run. It is one of the great pleasures in my life.

Congrats on the upcoming 49th!

I have it on good authority that you can be 49 for a long time.

And yeah glad you escaped from those sticky conference calls in time for this.

Thanks for the intro!

I have been 49 for quite some time but I've been 39 for even longer.
