Hey gang, can't stick around long but wanted to pop in and say hello and wish our host a Very Happy Birthday!

Oh, to be 49 again! Lol. 54 here and telling you age is still mostly a number. Just gotta keep your head and heart young!

Oh, and listening to Chief's old jokes now and again doesn't hurt!

Just my luck that every run scored tonight has been while in the car, the store, or sneaking away for a "break".

But I'm liking what I'm reading! Everyone contributing! Everyone heating up!

If you haven't checked out Tom's video piece on the Forum section do so. It's a good laugh.

An executed hit and run is the most beautiful play in baseball

This game exemplifies the saying that sometimes you're the pigeon and sometimes you're the statue.

Dick and Jack were just talking about the piped-in noise at Miller. First thing I noticed when I turned on the teevee was that the folks at Miller Park were not blasting music, etc throughout the game. That's a really nice change from Target Field. Sounds like the organist showed up too. Refreshing.

Nice at bats from Sano so far, each of 'em. Encouraging to see his eye improve today.

Cave just made 2 outs in the same inning. Bet that doesn't feel great

I noticed the organist too - it's much better than the blaring techno sounds. Not sure why they couldn't just play organ music if they really don't want to bring the organist to the stadium.

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.

How do you know they're that old?

Yeah, really. But at some of the recent games I also thought that it's no wonder Sano (and others) have a hard time judging pitches when the umps are not calling them correctly. There were at bats when Sano took pitches and sometimes really great takes but the umpire would just not reward him for it.

And despite the long half inning Maeda comes out in complete control and has only 49 pitches through 5.

He has been even better than I thought.

Needs to go 7 tonight.
