I suspect there isn't enough booze in the world to make this game interesting.

Your problem is obvious. You're limiting yourself to booze.

After 1 inning, Astros low A affiliate 0, St.Paul Saints 0.

I'm so sick of having to wait an hour or so every friggin game before this offense does anything at all.

and they've spent the whole broadcast so far talking about the futility of the Astros. That should be our motto this year, 'at least we aren't the Astros'.


An Astros sweep would really help us out in the Rodon race.

Cy Deduno has other plans.

I am a nice guy... However... My wife considers leaving a shower towel on the floor mean.


You know... I consider that solid advice... I can't see how this could backfire.

Stop showering for a handful of days - after that she may not view leaving a shower towel on the floor mean. She may start looking at it as the price of doing business.


Couple it with copious amounts of alcohol.

Darin Mastroianni (ankle) has been sent to the Twins' spring training complex in Fort Myers, Florida to begin a minor league rehab assignment.

Mastroianni initially hurt his ankle on March 25, and Minnesota's medical staff, in its infinite wisdom, prescribed a short amount of rest. The speedy outfielder will DH and play five innings on Saturday for the Gulf Coast League Twins. He'll then sit on Sunday and return to the lineup on Monday. Mastroianni could potentially return to the Twins this month, but all bets are off due to the nagging nature of his malady.

Dick: Thanks Gun... For that report... That is certainly good news for Twins Fans.

Bert: Darin is the type of player the Twins are a little short of... He has speed and the Twins don't have a lot of speed right now... Especially after the Drew Butera trade.

Dick: We certainly wish Drew well in Albuquerque.

Just got done watching a girl sport. At least they took care of business and put a smack down on Russia in the World Grand Prix. The kid scored 12 on 9 kills and 3 blocks. Go USA.


Nice

yeah, I suppose rubbing alcohol and mouthwash would definitely go with the no shower look.. Grow out a beard too while you are at it.

Now that Pinto is in AAA, I'd really like to see him in September. No roster move necessary, he's on the 40 man.

Well, the phone rang. The place she was going was too lame, so I guess I can stay home and start drinking.

Jake Elmore... Playing 2nd Base for the Stros... Jake Elmore? I wonder if he's ever performed at Bob Country Bunker or pursued by Illinois Nazi's or at least Henry Gibson.
