Doug Bernier and Eric Fryer need to be called "pinch hitter" at one point in their lives. Come on. Bernier for J-Willy would have been a good idea.

I would have pinch hit for the whole lineup not named Pinto or Arcia by now.


That would be "pinched" hit.

Thanks. Their, there and they're I can handle. But I have difficulties with drank/drunk, lay/lie, hang/hung.


Maybe you are still thinking about Dozier too/to much?

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

Close, but not this time.

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

Well, Shane and tn49 drank me under the table, so, yeah. It's my perspective.

Seriously ... I cannot get photos from my iPhone to load right ... I choose, and it looks fine, then hit upload, and it shows up sideways.

You're getting closer, only 90 degrees farther.

I wish I could have a tasty microbrew right now... I blame my work for not letting me drink on the job.


I know what you mean.

omg ... aargh ... okay ... was Arcia always this ... ? ... in the outfield? I don't recall hearing anything about his defense being this suspect.


I saw him play in New Britain last year. Hit a huge bomb over the fence. And the next inning tripped over his feet and fell on a routine fly ball.

4-0 isn't bad looks like Diamond has got things figured out, he's a very good AAA pitcher and we are expecting him to be a good major leaguer. Silly us!

The complete absence of the ability to miss bats was the dead giveaway.

I believe if you take the picture in portrait mode or with the volume buttons facing up, they will appear upside down or sideways when downloaded. Try with the volume buttons facing down in landscape.

How can you pitch to contact and miss bats? C'mon give your head a shake man!

Pitch to contact with the catcher's mitt after the ball passes through the strike zone in such a way that the hitter swings and misses it or doesn't swing and the pitch is called a strike?

Eh. Too complicated. Just keep letting 'em beat the bejesus outta the ball. They'll hit it right to someone eventually...

That's what I did this time. It worked last night doing that ... but not today. But I also took the pictures in landscape mode as well as posted them in landscape mode (with the volume buttons down.) This picture was an older picture I had on my phone from last April.

Despite the reservations he had, Dozier followed the training staff's new warmup routine to the letter...

Martis and Fryer have probably cemented 40-man roster spots,and big league jobs for 2014 with this.

Veteran bench depth and a hard-throwing bullpen guy.

2 fixes like this have the Twins well on their way to a 70-win season next year!

Should work with the buttons down or the home button down, it's a common workaround, odd.

It's a metadata issue with ios5 that effects how windows views them, it didn't exist before that.
