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?"
