That was a nice throw!

I'm giddy with live baseball :)

Good for Diamond to work out of that ... with a little help from Mr. Hicks.

Anybody else getting crappy audio? I sounds like the mic is bad, or they're talking too close. Anybody else?

It's a little like they are in a bucket on the TV audio. But I'm so used to absolutely crappy audio on college BB lately that I just kind of ignore it.

Will the improvements at Hammond include wifi? I know, a random question.

That's right Tanaka started today.

Unfortunately I don't do mlb.com TV. Since I'm in Iowa we're blacked out on 6 markets. I have Dish so that's kind of a good thing cuz Twins, WSox, Cubs, Royals, Cards, Brewers are all included without going for an extra innings package.

But I do miss those east and west coast home games.

Came in, in the 5th and gave up a hit:D

to the first hitter, but got out of the inning on his first strike out.

Is it incredibly mean-spirited of me to kind of wish he's a big bust?

I'm kind of mean, too.

He doesn't have to be a big bust .... just kind of mediocre.

That Bill Smith guy sounds pretty smart to me. The Twins should promote him.
