I did one for the Brewers series but I had to leave town unexpectedly and don't have a stable Internet connection out here in the sticks.

I'll have one back up for the next series.

I'll be at tonight's game in person. I'm not too optimistic with Seattle's #2 against the Twins' #5(+), but the club is playing well and maybe someone will do something noteworthy. Heck, seeing that the Twins have a better record than the Mariners, I now predict a victory tonight--yeah, that's the ticket!

Watch out for the rude guy that Westgaard ran into.

Have a good time.

Wrong... We check the channel and change it to the correct game.

Nah, it'll be whichever team wanted it more. Or got after it, or whatever.

BTW, I am risking the power of avatar girl on the pitching prowess of Pelfrey. Let's hope this doesn't burn her out - nice winning streak once I put her back in the lineup.

LOL... That would make you the ass of the ass. That is way too much synergy potential. It may end up influencing the tides.

The key to a Twin's win tonight is to keep Ichiro off base and keep Brett Boone from going yard.

That's all moot if we can't hit Randy Johnson's slider.

On a serious note... I watched that Iwakuma pitch a couple times last year and I was very impressed and it seemed like no one knew who he was.

I kinda felt like he was my personal bit of knowledge.

OK... Whew.. That was exhausting being serious for 40 words or so. It takes a lot out of you.

What are the stats for when they are outscored, however?
