He's a nut job, imho

Most nut jobs are good guys, in small doses, until you cross them somehow. IMHO.

I asked Uncle Ted... Why there isn't any Ted Nugent, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen type Guitar superstars today?

He gave a 10 minute answer that could be summed up as "It's Obama's Fault"

I actually thought the Twins were going to take 2 of 3 in Yankee stadium this weekend. Because baseball is strange like that.

Could still happen. But the strikeouts arent a great sign.

Mauer is not good at scoring when he is in scoring position.

Great question. Right now, I think it might be Tonkin, but if the bully gets abused again today, they might send someone else down. I would like to see the bullpen cut by one, but no one really jumps out as a demotion candidate. I also think that an injury, any injury, could put someone on the DL so that Tonkin could get a longer look.

7 K's in 4 innings. You can see the teamwork can't you.

Arcia out of the lineup and the rest of the team is picking it up for him.

String... I got another question for you.

In the Military... A General outranks a Major... So... Why is a Major illness worse than a General Illness?

Thrown out by Doumit, how embarrasing.

I think we might take a lead in this inning.

I guess a Florimon walk isn't the worst way to start an inning.

I guess a Florimon caught-stealing isn't the best way to end an inning.

I felt like Morneau was going to hit one out right there.
