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

I'm not a big fan of singing 'God Bless America' in the 7th inning. Frankly, even though Irving Berlin wrote it, I just don't think it's that great of a song.

Let's see, behind 5-2 after 7 and the Twins are 2-15 w/RISP.

Someone give me a good reason to keep watching.

Note: Being a masochist is not a good reason.

I wonder if I could get a medical marijuana prescription based on Twins induced anxiety?

But it's the only reason that makes sense.

Perhaps they will show some moobs in the stands.

Over 1100 pa's Plouffie has this line, .230/.292/.383/.705, 85 ops+. If he wasn't great in the field, that doesn't work, ok he battles his tail off anyway.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

I wish that I could have a long talk with Plouffe about changing his mindset and realizing his potential. He appears to have the tools to be a great player, but does not seem able to maintain focus.

Maybe they should change the words:

"Please go and hit the ball,
To drive in runs,
When there's two on,
With no outs,
Keep you eye on the ball from above.
From the grounders,
To the pop ups,
To the strike outs,
All for nought,
Please go and hit the ball,
To drive in runs,
Please go and hit the ball,
To drive in runs."

I don't know if you can get a Marijuana prescription for T.I.A. - but I guarantee it helps tremendously.

I think that it should be legalized at Target Field at any time that the Twins are hitting less than .200 with RISP. They should have a special area for those in need of medication.

Considering the connection of TD to Twins-Centric, I shudder to think of someone starting a Moob Daily website.

They charge 7 or 8 bucks for a single beer at TF. I can't even imagine what they might charge for a single...uh...dose of medication.
