Pinch hitting for the Twins...Chris Herrman???


The Right Lefty Thing I suppose... Dozier had been swinging it pretty well... I might have saved Herrmann for the ninth if we need a dinger.

In hindsight, I wish Dozier had been given a chance there.

He's no Drew Butera, but he has time to develop.

Sorry, I meant that he got tired of it a week or so ago and has been on a major tear. He's been a force.


Apologies are not allowed on a game thread unless they are funny...

You will have to try again.

This is a game thread, and the rules are looser here. Snepp and I cannot protect people like we could in a non-game thread.


You don't think I can handle myself? I survived BYTO, I think I can survive this. ;)

"Speedo?"

Oddly enough, up until recently that was Mrs Chief's pet nickname for me.

So is Thielbar for real? I'd certainly like to think so.

And no, I don't mean is he an android, even a real android. Or an owl.
