Things to Think About:

1. Think about Baseball... It's the greatest game in the world and I'm missing it. This shade of busy and overtaken me for the time being and I've been unable to watch much baseball or participate in the game thread. It can't last forever. Things should slow down.

2. Think about Carroll... No... Not Carol Brady... Jamey Carroll... There he is... Playing 3B in another uniform. Wouldn't it be something if he hit one out... For old times sake.

3. Think about Albers... We still like Albers... Right? He's still a reason to get up in the morning. Go get em Andrew and keep go gettin em for another 6 years if you don't mind.

4. Think about Mauer... Haven't seen him in awhile.

5. Think about Life... We are born Wet, Naked and Hungry... And then things get worse.
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

Another great setup. I hope that everyone appreciates the time that you take from your busy schedule to set up the game threads and start us off with a smile or two.

I'm not sure if I have words appropriate for this forum to describe that Twins lineup. Its definitely striking fear into peoples' hearts. Only problem is those people are Twins fans and not the opposing team.

Why do you think people are always posting pictures of scantily-clad women in game threads? It's a coping mechanism.

After seeing that line-up posted, i have to ask "Are the Twins tanking the season now in order to get a better draft position??"

I bet if you put that lineup in the AAA playoffs they wouldn't get swept, in the first round.


Positivity!

Willingham was claimed I wonder if he stays in the lineup?

They have until Friday at noon, i do believe it is, to work out a deal or pull him back. Unless they fast tracked a deal, he probably stays in. If he's a late scratch, that could definitely be a sign that something is actually brewing with discussions already though.

It's a good idea to dump some of that water onto your body - you'll know it's enough when the skin glistens - and maybe some on your shirt to make the coolness last longer.

I was taught not to question the appearance of scantily-clad women and simply enjoy it while it lasts.

I do, I do! It's the highlight of my day! Oh, wait, hmm, well, as great as the set ups are, and as much as I do appreciate them, being the highlight of my day is a little, sad. Of course, my stay-cation has been about cleaning out and organizing closets, cupboards and drawers, so, maybe not so sad.

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

I know. Which is why I don't really 'complain.' And my post wasn't a complaint, just a statement of fact. If it were a complaint I'd be outraged and insisting on change, which is just a plain stupid thing to do and be. So, I'm more, meh, I don't care, but whatever flips their quarters. And I could post my own coping photos, but I'd rather take advantage of the frame of mind it puts all of you in! ;)

You are a wise and articulate woman who makes every game thread at least 25% better.

She has the general idea, yes. I would be interested in working with her on the finer points of technique.

Only 25%??? <pout> (Yes, I'm kidding. Glad I contribute even though I don't spout stats or insist I'm right in every other post.)

So you insist you are right in every post?

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Keep in mind that 73% of the percentages referenced on the Internet are made up on the spot.
