Think about working on a Saturday and missing the joy of watching the Athletics clinch on TV.


I worked today. But was only this morning.

This is shaping up to be another slaughter. I am going to take a nap.


yeah, I didn't time that well ... already took a nap. Darn rain delay.

I had to work today too - had to do a funeral.

Then I come back to watch the Twins.

I honestly don't know which is more depressing.

Is anybody else really missing Morneau at first yet?

Sigh ... I know that was a bad throw ... but would Morneau have been able to scoop that?

Depends. Was the deceased old enough not to be mistaken for the Twins veteran deadwood? Did the deceased lead a fuller life than most of the young Twins talent has shown capable of so far?

If Arcia were in RF today, the score would be 4-0 now and no outs, with a runner on 2nd or 3rd.

Ugh. Am hoping that Texas loses tonight so we don't have to see any celebrating tomorrow.



edit 1: Well, hoping our game doesn't outlast theirs.


edit 2: hmm, nm, if that happens I likely won't still be watching.


edit 3: and on that note ...

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Speaking of Liam, Dick says he's the long man today.

Well, "long" meaning "first."

Could be a record breaker today

"Pitch-to-Contact, we have contact." Just love those prescient comments from DickBert: "Pedro needs to pitch more inside", "Pedro needs to pitch into the 7th inning"; "None of the team took batting practice before the game, the A's are taking it now."

Wow.

Yeah, it's rough. I am not a fan of Dickbert, but they definitely have a terrible job right now.

We should change our name to the Washington Senators. Not as a homage to the team that was before they came to Minnesota but to the one that plays the Harlem Globetrotters.

Liam Hendriks just recorded 3 outs without giving up 6 runs in between.

Pedro Hernandez sure seems hittable.


He's no Liriano.

Where else can you pop out to the 22 yard line?
