As I understand it, you can get to Compton from Beverly Hills pretty easy, but getting back through the checkpoints and roadblocks is such a hassle that it isn't worth the trip.


Not a big deal and best BBQ in town is Bludsoe's.

Seriously... I mean I'm seriously...

There were people on Twins Daily who were concerned about Parmelee from a defensive stand point.

I had no idea but they had me concerned about it figuring they have seen him in the minors or something.

Not only has Parmeleee been good defensively... He has been about 6 levels above good.

Yes you can improve but not this much. The guy has serious defensive game and I assume he has had it all along.


Better defense than Cuddyer?

I love BBQ... Kansas City Style is my preferred. But I won't knock Memphis, Texas, Carolina or anywhere.

I am from Memphis and therefore biased. But the best brisket ever can be found in Compton.

Yes and it ain't close in my mind.

Cuddyer's gift was his arm. He has a hose but Parm is showing more range and making more difficult plays.

Memphis and Beverly Hills... How did the Twins connection develop?

1965 World Series then WHO radio broadcasting the Twins from Iowa. Memphis had no team. Most people rooted for the Cardinals, but I have been a Twins fan since 1965.

It was just one inning... Plenty of time for rusty mistakes.


Couple innings later... good call. :)

Thank you... Thank you... I just didn't want Glunn to worry unnecessarily. He has enough on his mind with all those meetings with Thurston and Lovey Howell types.

I was 11 years old then, and ran in different circles. But later, Jerry Lee Lewis moved to our block. He was a character.

Milburn is probably dead and gone by now... That Entitled son is probably still around though.

Give credit to Bonderman for what he has been able to do after some very major surgeries. He deserves a hug from Olivia.

This may seem cruel and greedy, but I am hoping for at least 13 more runs.

Is the Hillbilly Mansion still around?

And Glunn... I do feel I have to point this out:

Jethroe tried for many years to open a Hillbilly-themed casino near me, in Carson City. Bought the property, or at least had the options, had trouble getting financing or perhaps local zoning.
