I feel like a hobo when I watch the Twin's play.

I guess that is the cost of a awful ball club.

Feel free to visit me at the Dorothy Day Center this winter.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Since we really should have some baseball discussion, if the Twins dyed their hair red would they get more hits or pitch better?


I'd say pitch better. I mean, everyone knows that blondes have more fun ... which doesn't really translate into winning or losing, just having fun doing either. But redheads ... sassier. To me that translates into sassier pitching, good pitching. It's the brunettes that hit it out of the park as they are bolder.

6. Think about Kolek or Gatewood. Both will look nice next June.

Good one, Rookie. We need to see more of you next season.

Um, I'm blonde (currently), I work in a library. I think that joke is insulting to me. I give you an infraction.



I AM kidding. This is the game thread, after all.


When did you become a mod? And how long will it take to abuse your power?

Are they dying their hair 'tween now and then, or what?

I've always been mod. Oh, A mod. Blonde moment.

It's recent ... a week? I'm 'in training' ... this is my AFL showing. I imagine, though, once I make the big team out of spring training, the ego will increase, ergo the abuse of power.

My guess is you'll know damn soon.

I could be wrong but I think they are trying to use sex to sell automobiles.


I keep hearing sex sells, but every time I use sex to sell something, there are no takers.

No but they'd have a better chance of getting picked up in the bar after the game.

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

What comes first for Gardy, 1000 wins or 1000 losses? I wonder if the playoff losses count in his 944.

Does anybody think that 15 runs would actually win it for the Twins tonight?

I'd 'like' that comment but the reality of it is nothing to like.

As a Twins fan that should not be an issue, since you should know "how to do things the right way" and being able to "battle your tail off" or something like that.

I feel as if at this point in the season we all need rational explanations to why we are still watching the Twins.
