    Check back to this spot for Brian's setup. I guess you could consider this spot as Twins Daily's version of 'Deep Thoughts.'

    Thank You ChiTown

    Here are my Deep Thoughts

    Things to Think About


    1. It's a day game... And I'm just getting the chance to think about this game. So I'm late.

    2. Boston again... As often as we play Boston in the preseason... You'd swear that we we were in the same city or something.

    3. Bartlett in RF... Outfield training is probably gonna get ramped up before Monday.

    4. Pinto Catching... He's coming North... It'll be interesting to see how the catching labor is divided up.

    5. Think about Monday... Opening day... I've taken the day off from work because it should be a national holiday.

    Cue the Mama and the Papa's...ba da ba da da dah... Monday Monday... So good to me... Cue Jimmy Buffett... Come Monday... It'll be alright... Cue Fleetwood Mac... Monday Morning you look so fine... Cue the Boomtown Rats... Tell me why I don't like Mondays... I want to shoot the whole day down.

    Ok... Let's not cue up the Boomtown Rats with this crowd. Let's not cue up the Carpenters either. Let's go into Monday with optimism.

    Strong winds blowing out toward left today, so maybe the Twins can increase their hr totals. And the Commissioners Cup is on the line today. Score, Twins, score!

    Isn't it the Mayor's Cup? And they have another game tomorrow, too, or is Boston that much ahead at this point?

    Hey, Halsey ... if you're still reading ... you've mentioned in a couple different threads about Gardy being in the tower watching over the minor leaguers ... any idea what/who he's looking at? Is it 'curious' that he's down there, or just looking at the future?

    At least Gardy moved Mauer up one notch, so he's not hitting in front of Willingham. And Hammers replacement didn't sulk and is in the minor league camp today, Parmelee. Also, TK had Mauer and 3 other coaches at first today giving lessons.

    The Mayors Cup is now the Commissioners Cup. Series tied at 2, but tommorrow should be rained out, so this is probably the only chance for the Twins to win some hardware til next spring.

    About all I could think was that he was looking to see who to bring on the road last night. Day before I have no clue. Maybe keeping an eye on Santana.

    I was busy at work... And I just can't get into this spring training day game stuff right now.

    Bring Monday on... I'm actually willing to give up this weekend to fast forward to Monday.

    At least you've driven "Glory Days" right out of my mind, RB.

    Willingham with long fly to left.

    At least that's progress.

    Baby Steps... Long fly... Then warning track... Then off the wall... Then in the seats... Then a no doubter.... If he follows that pattern.. He will reach the upper deck by 2016.

    Is anyone else listening to the game on KTWN?

    They've had some weird technical issues. Every once in a while there it breaks out into a weird pulsating feedback sounding loop. It sounds like something out of a horror/sci-fi movie. It's kind of cool. Or is that just my radio?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Hicks looks like one of those guys who needs the pitcher to work quickly .... kind of fidgety out in center.

    Watching on FSN; at the moment Provus is interviewing Rob Antony. Antony just sounds really uncomfortable at public speaking. Not TK uncomfortable, but clearly he'll be happy when Ryan is back.
