Sorry for the late post for anyone wishing to comment online during the game. Since I'm not Brian, no humourous musings. I only hope that I spelled everyone's name correctly!

Thanks for putting this up! I was too lazy to do it.


Pelfrey working much faster tonight than last year.

Ha, ha~ Burton in a jam, top 3rd and Mauer can't resist going to the mound... wonder how many times we'll see that this season?
Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

Chief should've put that as one of his over/under tie-breakers!

I think our GMs need to take some PR classes. They are both just agonizing to listen to.

Fortunately little time for Antony to talk with all these "quality" at-bats Twins batters are having...

Gladden doing play-by-play for fireworks was one of the more disturbing things I've ever heard.

Explain...


I would prefer not to... but if you insist.

It consisted of a series of "Ooohs", "Aaaahs", and "Wow!"s that could have easily been mistaken for something else.

Hey all... I apologize for not putting a game thread up but thanks to ChiTown the magnificent for getting it up.

I just got home from work and my wife is watching American Idol and the remote is tightly gripped. I could over power her but I think that'd be a bad idea. So I'm trying to imagine the Twins on my mind.

My Wife does and she doesn't even use the HD channels. I don't know what bugs me more... The fact that she watches the show or the fact that she refuses to watch it in HD.

Glad I went to my exercise class. Staying home to watch the game would have been torture by comparison.

Just looking over the box score and this caught my eye:
Deolis Guerra - 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 3 K, 1 BB...10 strikes, 4 balls.

In other words, Guerra gave up a first-pitch hit, gave up a walk on four pitches, and got three strikeouts on three pitches each. Efficiency!

The game is playing now on MLB channel in California -- 9:25 PST. We could have a west coast game thread if anyone else is watching.
