    Good question...seems to be at least as fast as last year, which would be good for first start. I love his location too...not afraid at all to work inside.

    I am certainly liking these quick innings by a Twins pitcher!

    Pelfrey is rolling right now
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.

    If he continues to hit game winning triples, he can wear whatever he wants.

    When was the last time a Twins pitcher started four innings of perfect ball? This is encouraging.

    What we lack in speed we make up for in slugging. Obvs.

    I'm using the Twins feed- looks like the fastball is in the low 90s, though I'm listening more than watching.

    Deceptive speed. We're slower than we look.

    Indoor. Baku is ok. It's really expensive. There is a definite division of wealth. I enjoyed the people, and they were pretty curious about me. It feels like a culture with growing pains, and experiences some of the awkwardness that goes with it.
    She actually asked for and got her release from her Azerbaijani team, and is now with a team just outside of Venice. They are in second place with 2 matches left. She is guaranteed to make the playoffs for the first time in her career, so we are heading back out in a couple weeks.

    Is it harder or easier to battle your tail off when it moves more slowly?

    Which is why I give Varva a pass.

    Indians announcers second guessing the decision to hold Dozier at third.

    If you haven't been, absolutely go to Ravenna. You can see the sadly ignored Byzantine and even Gothic Italy. If you're I to mosaics, I think Ravenna has the best of their kind in all of Italy.

    Also, Mauer!
