1B Parmelee

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Runs... Every time a runner crosses home plate a run is put up on the board. At the end of the game... The Team that produces the most runs is the winner. The Twins haven't scored a run in 19 innings. I'd like to complain about the pitching but we haven't scored a run in 19 innings.

2. Think about David Price... We haven't scored a run in 19 innings and now we get to face David Price

3. Think about Oswaldo Arcia... We are facing a tough lefthander and the left handed hitting Arcia is on the bench... I assume because we are facing a tough lefthander.

4. Think about Chris Colabello... Arcia is on the bench because we are facing a tough lefthander... Yet... The Right handed Colabello is on the bench in favor of the left handed hitting Parmelee.

5. Think about Insomnia... I had been dealing with a little insomnia the past few weeks but I've found a cure for it... Turns out... I just needed to get some sleep. I got some sleep and the insomnia was cured.

If sleep hadn't cured your insomnia, watching a few more innings from an offense where Brian Dozier constitutes a 3-hole hitter should do it.

If Doumit ran like Ben Revere... He would have been safe.

They are as frustrating as the Twins.

Watching Vikings and keeping an eye on the Twins gamecast.

So technology has granted me the ability to have each eye bleed from a different cause.

Twins probably should have forfeited when Price failed to injury himself during warmup.

Don't give up -- the Twins now have baserunners with no outs.

First and second, nobody out, most teams' fans would be saying "how many runs", Twins' fans are saying "how will we blow it?"

Some days having picture in a picture so you can watch 2 games is a really bad thing, today was one of those days.

Another runner on first with no outs. Let's score this inning.

Fun with numbers: More posts here than fans at the stands by the ninth?

FYI, Chicago Cubs in 1968 apparently did not score in 48 innings. They also were shut out 4 times in a row which has happened 11 more times since then.

We're threatening now, though...but a K and DP should do the trick.

It's safe to say that if the weather were nicer, there would easily be twice as many 9th inning faithful as there are game thread posts.

'68 Cubs went 84-78. Twins are achieving their streak the hard way, by actually being so inept that being shut out three or four times in a row isn't an anomaly, it's justice.

Given that top flight QBs are best found with a high draft pick...
