Is this what Terry meant by meaningful games in September?

Damn it Plouffe

I'm thinking of going through sig lines like Ash goes through avatars. This will have a spot in the rotation.

My prediction- the first team to 14 will win this game.

Wow! Runners on first and second. Base hit up the middle...for a double play. We end up with no runs scored, two outs, and a man on second. Must be seen to believed. Willingham and Plouffe made like Abbott and Costello.

Time for Chief's new sig line...

Twins baseball at its best!

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

All 348 fans in Houston were really energized by that play. It was really nice to see Willingham at least lower his shoulder and try to jar the ball loose, rather than politely refusing to slide and accepting the tag, as we've seen lately.

So Plouffe has 3 hits and has managed to make two really bad outs on the basepaths. He's a multi-threat player.

I was at a recent White Sox-Astros game in Chicago (family event I couldn't really avoid). There were several drunk hecklers in my section, right-center field. They kept heckling the Astro's right-fielder, calling him "Howe" and trying to make jokes based on Howe. Then they realized his name was actually "Hoes". It gave them great inspiration, although the security guard threatening to throw them out eventually dampened their enthusiasm.

It's all part of the therapy- take a guy recovering from a knee injury, let him round third, then throw up the stop sign and see if he can stay on his feet.

You didn't even mention his fielding.

You watched those T ball games? I always averted my eyes.
