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

15!


By far the highlight of this season.

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.

... walks and strikeouts ... .

... and home runs.

We should come up with a snappy, sabre-istic nickname for those three outcomes.

New mercy rule, 1 after 1.

You're assuming a lot. Better make that 1 after 1/2.

Like CTTF, I got up early this morning to watch the Granddaughter, and then spent the day accomplishing honey-do's including painting the garage door Mrs Chief saw fit to back through recently, so if I nod off someone pinch me.

No offense to Roy Smalley. I have always thought that he should keep his mouth shut and let his hair do the talking.

There won't be any spark in the Twins dugout tonight, or tommorrow. Gotta get outta Texas and try to refocus, somehow.

I remember when Dougie M was in front of him. I couldn't wait for him to be called up. The Anticipation was as acute as I ever experienced... I've been a big Morneau fan ever since.
