It's something to look at, but I'm not personally a fan of teams tanking, like they do in the lesser sports, somewhat in the NFL and quite openly in the NBA. Nor of rooting for that as an effect.


I am not a fan of that either, but when it comes I find that thinking of a good draft pick provides some solace.

I just got back from picking up breakfast. I was accosted by two young women in sun dresses who wanted restaurant advice and to pet my dog. That will probably be the highlight of my day.

Willingham is a liability in the field. A liability on the bases. He will decline further next year. It is time to release him. No one would take on his contract. The Twins got one good year for the 21 million.

I am going to take a shot in dark and assume your wife never goes on walks with you.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Some kind of euphemism?

Luckily she did not go on today's walk. Now my dog smells of perfume and I have a nice memory.

Yup...said this the other night: I SO want to like Plouffe, but he seems determined to thwart me.

I guess that was the nicer way to put it ... but what can I say ... I'm more expressive than tactful <G>

I'm sure Hawk is cackling up a storm about that inning. At least, we made an old man happy.

This is meant for Glunn as he might be the only one who knows what the hell I am talking about.

David Koresh is to the Branch Davidians what Bark's Lounge is to Plouffeism.:(

I get it, but I retain a slight hope that the Plouffe situation will end less tragically.
