Pinto is basically the only reason to watch the Twins for the rest of the season. Unless Colabello goes ape.


Arcia may have 0 plate discipline but he's still fun to watch at times......not in the field.

I am not watching anymore, by the way. It went out again. Just black screen.

I see the "rally" failed.


God must be looking down on you!

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

I know I'm a broken record ... but I'm going back to Comcast Extra Innings, even though it is a lot more expensive. I will still get the mlb audio only package, for like $15-20/yr ... whatever it was.


No Comcast where I live. And my landlord won't allow a satellite dish.

Agreed. If anyone will hit it completely out of the park it'll be him. Hopefully they can beat the Delmonsie routes in the field out of him.

Probably best achieved by not playing him there, but I'll take it over gold glover Ryan Doumit.

6. Think about Texas. They are probably thinking 'Why couldn't we have played this Twins team instead of the one we did.'

Watching that would be more entertaining as well. TD facetime might be necessary.

Hmmm. I'm starting to think your appreciation for Dozier goes beyond a typical fan's appreciation for the skilled gifts of a professional athlete.

Nah ... it's just my schtick to get me through another abysmal performance on the field. Not by Dozey-boy, though.

Hey ... at least it's not like last night ... I went away for one inning to mix up some peanut butter brownies and came back to 15-1.

So, let's get a head start on this, because it might take a while.

Is there anything positive we can take out of days like today?
