Does anyone think that Gardenhire is going to get his 5 wins yet this year?

The serious answer, to me, is that it should be done before the last series and the Twins will win a couple against the Tribe if they are eliminated before that last series.

Florimon-Escobar: I think Pedro has the edge in both range and arm. Escobar is pretty sure handed, but I don't think he has superior range or speed

Hmm ... should ... but with this team? I'm not even sure about shoulds at this point. But I think hitting 1000 is a good departure point for Gardy.

I can feel my waistline expanding just looking at the picture. (I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm sitting on my butt in front of the computer again.)

I always thought that Escobar projected as the utility guy and Florimon was the better SS.

Of course if you strip out all the opponents strikeouts they're hitting over .400.

That by definition is lipstick on a pig!

I keep checking the other ("serious") game thread and so far the experiment seems to be failing.

IMO it's the product on the field that is failing!!
