    I've been thinking about Russia and Crimea. Since it's a free for all.. I think we should just take Kiev... I like what they do with Chicken.

    The mlb.com play-by-play shows:

    Desmond Jennings doubles (1) on a ground ball to left fielder Josh Willingham.

    Can someone please explain how the play went? Is "ground ball" a poor description of what went for a routine double? Or is Willingham's play on this ball a poor excuse for left fielding?

    Down the line groundball and into the corner.

    I hope people don't look back on the Revere trade and think it was so terrible. It may play out that way but, at the time, we got a fair return for him. This is coming from someone who was excited about Revere's future with the Twins.

    The trade gave us the opportunity to make many posts--Worley, May and Hicks--that we wouldn't have had the chance!

    Who is this Zobrith guy Bert keeps talking about? Know the Rays have All Star superutilityman Ben ZobriST, but a conscientious and highly articulate professional broadcaster like Bert wouldn't keep butchering the name of one of the most popular players in baseball, right?

    Love that Dick and Bert are like an old married couple now; Dick knows Bert's mangling a name, but like someone who lets a spouse keep telling the story of a long-ago event wrong over and over, he just lets it go instead of correcting him during the break.

    Has anyone survived 9 innings of the Bert name-butchery drinking game? Might be a good wager for 2014: who makes it deeper into a game this season, a Twins starter or a TD Bert drinking game poster.

    Just read a tweet from Seth suggesting that Worley should be waived immediately after he comes out of this game, and that he will very likely clear. I agree, and hope he does clear and figures things out. But it's time to send him down.

    That's not fair, I know. Worley only throws 3 different pitches. A 2 seemer, 4 seemer, and a cutter

    Not really a spot for him if he clears, I wonder if a bullpen transition would start. He should be waived though wasting innings up here.

    Did I read in another thread that Suzuki led the majors last year in fastball percentage called for? And that his framing wasn't good? At least he got one borderline called third strike for Vanimal, who wouldn't be having a good night with anyone other than Obi-wan Kenobi influencing the umpire.

    A couple of breaking pitches this inning. Suzuki just came out and asked if they were accidental.
