[quote name='Alex'][quote name='Kwak'].

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.[/QUOTE]

Washington Generals.

Timberwolves. They never played in Washington though, went straight to the Globetrotter circuit.

Whether or not Gardy gets to 1,000, I think that this should be his last season with the Twins. In my opinion, it's time for a new manager, preferably from an organization that does more with less, like the Rays or Oakland.

I just don't see that happening. I mean, from outside the organization, as much as it makes sense to all of us. But, I'm open to being surprised.

On field note--is it me or are the only two guys putting up consistent big league at-bats Dozier and Pinto?

Doesn't look like Texas is playing along with the "A's clinch tonight" plan.

Well, then, if the Rangers win tonight ... then they and we HAVE to win tomorrow, or we are going to be on field watching another team celebrate. Ugh. Hate that.

For the benefit of CTTF I am trying out this rookie Rally Avatar, in a very low-leverage situation.

Ninth Inning Caption Contest! I'll go first (or second, if that was Winnie's entry):

Andy: Keeping me as coach next year?
Gardy: <lengthy pause> Uh, sure. As long as I am manager, you've got a job.
