Do I have this right? After two (2!) innings, seven of the nine Twins' starters have a hit? Four runs and seven hits is more than a game's worth!


Yep. and after 2 innings the Sox haven't gotten the ball out of the infield.

Is the game on WGN or is anyone listening on the radio?

I imagine by now the once hostile fans at US Cellular are now chanting Do-zier, Do-zier.

Soon this will be Hawk Haroldson:

Game isn't on TV today. They'll have the abbreviated version on FSN tonight.

I'm listening to the radio. That is, when I'm not doing work stuff that makes me leave my desk.

I think since we're all working, we should disband this game thread and continue it when we can watch the replays tonight! :)

Yep. Rocky IV.

That's why. Rocky IV? Isn't that the one that ends up being a street fight between Sylvester Stallone and some random dude?

Oh please no! Don't disband! This is the only thing keeping me sane today!

I'm game - I have to leave the office in a few minutes anyway. Of course I'm busy tonight too. Sucks to miss the first good game they've had in a while.

Nope that's Rocky V and the random dude was former heavy-weight champ Tommy Morrison who just died from complications from AIDS. I'd get tested if I was Rocky.

Understandable.They do kind of all blur together after a while - not unlike Twins games in a losing season.

Diamond makes it through the 4th with only allowing the one home run.

Let's keep it up Diamond. Pitch like your job depends on it.

Yes, you didn't miss much except for a huge swelling of national pride in the form of Hollywood/US government propaganda. Basically Rocky ended the Cold War all by himself. He punched Russia into submission.

Spoiler alert: We won!

Die Commies!

If you are curious about which Rocky movies are the best, you can figure it out by reading the titles. They are ordered best to worst based on their numerical values.

Right. That was what happened in that one.

I find it funny that the "big bad Russian" is played by a Swedish actor.

Did Arcia just get thrown out at first from a hit to right field?

I know that happens, but... come on!

Game day said he was out 4-3, not 9-3
