Why Not do a game thread... The game is on tonight.

I could have put this in the minor league forum but there is more traffic in this forum and it's the normal home of the game thread.

Many of us will be watching Sano and Rosario and the others.

Pedro Hernandez starting for the Rock Cats. We've seen Hernandez before... Too Bad we couldn't watch Meyer or May instead.

Regardless... I'll be watching and enjoying.

I like that Rosario picked up that charity hop clean in the 1st. Just reaching for any sign that he can field.

i like Santana tagging from 1B on the Rosario fly to left.

Listening online to radio 1410, must be in CT. Just heard the squirrely sound in the background when a batter struck out - ayup, must be minor league ball.

Anybody happen to know of a video feed through teh interwebs?

Sounds like they are going to talk right through this whole game like they did for the last minor league game they aired.

Was it this bad the last game? I don't think there's been more than a total of 30 seconds of dead air since I started watching.

Don't know too much about him but they just said the Twins gave him a bonus of almost a million. For a 10 round pick thats a bunch

With Cedar Rapids we got a split screen with the Fox Sports crew talking over it. Occasional full screen with PBP that sounded like it was coming over a phone line.

Fire the 3B coach for sending the runner with Sano on deck.

ruined our chance at watching a Sano salami.

Assuming I'm getting the same audio feed through their 1410 radio, I could stand the wall of words if they didn't keep repeating the small amount of information they have on hand. I've only been listening off-and-on but heard twice about one of the players being from Brooklyn Park and being a good local MN athlete.

"What are we doing here? Frank, what's going on?"

That's what just came through the audio feed. Slick.

So it's like listening to KS95?
P.S. I don't listen to that garbage, but my wife keeps it on in the kitchen.
