Things to Think About:

1. Think About Justin Morneau... Traded to the Pirates today... Good Luck To Justin... I hope the Pirates reach the WS and Justin can get a ring. He was going to be a free agent and we got something for him. It'll be interesting to see who the player to be named later is but we got something for him. We were about to get nothing for him.

2. Think about Matt Garza... The One Time Twin is on the mound to face us. I wonder if it matters to him after all this time or is just another game to him.

3. Think About Plouffe... He's in the lineup again. I'm pissed... I'm gonna turn the channel when he bats. OK... I won't do that but dang it... Do Something that resembles baseball at it's fullest please. Light your Hair on Fire for once will you.

4. Think about September... Today is the last day of August... That means September is tomorrow... The Games become meaningful tomorrow.

5. Think about Possessions... "We can't have everything... Where would you put it"?

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.

Everyone needs bunt on that immature jackazz. All. Night. Long.

Best of luck to Morneau, here's hoping he's back in a Twins uniform next year.

You need to put a 6. In front of that!

It just occurred to me... Justin went out with a homer. Nice!

Twins now have no player left that has played in a Twin playoff game win. The last win was on Oct. 5, 2004 a long time ago.

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

I think I might be too tired for this game, but I'll stick it out for as long as possible.

I think we should bunt at least once every inning against Garza just to see what he will do.

Starting your day at 5AM is no way to go thru life.

With 15 HRs, Dozier becomes the most prolific HR-hitting 2B in Twins franchise history.

15!

Starting your day at 5AM is no way to go thru life.

Nor is ending your day at 5AM, oddly enough.

I've tried both.

It's always one of those games.
