    By the way, WTH happened to Pelf last night? How do you go from hitless through 4 to completely falling apart in the 6th?

    Can someone please clarify why Arcia's numbers through 4 games are suddenly relevant when my (Note to Twins) thread was bombarded with posters going out of their way to tell me how irrelevant any numbers are this early in the season?

    Agreed, I think they are just as irrelevant.

    To clarify, I don't have a problem giving him a day off now and then, but I think the time to do it is against a tough lefty, which we will be facing on Monday.

    Dick and Bert were right for once. Pelf had the ball sinking for three innings and suddenly not so much. Also, he lost command of the strike zone, he walked his last two hitters on nine pitches, I believe.

    And now for something completely different. Today's game is on Fox Sports 1. I haven't followed this too closely, but I presume Fox, like NBC, has a cable sports channel. Again assuming that they are going to run their Saturday regular season games on the cable sports channel and then run post-season games on the regular network. AmIright?

    And I wasn't joking about the cold and Arcia. I also think that nothing is keeping Gardy from putting Colabello in the lineup right now.

    Numbers probably not as important as "non-competitive at-bats". If a guy looks hopeless more than half the time, it probably is time for them to take a day off. I'm not saying that is the case with Arcia, I just haven't seen enough regular season ball (day games on work days).

    Likely correct, though I hope they have Saturday games on the network at least some of the time going forward, especially given the MLB.tv blackout Saturday's that otherwise all but eliminates my Twins viewing (Cubs, White Sox, Reds, Cardinals, and Tigers get first dibs here in Northwest Indiana).

    I'm no expert on invisibility, but it seems to me, unless you also own invisible clothes, you would have to go naked. Otherwise there would be this set of clothes just standing around and my guess is you'd get noticed.

    He has been both extremes. He has smacked the ball pretty hard at times but also has some bad strikeouts.

    You are right for the most part, they aren't terribly relevant. Although if Arcia was 6/14 (like Colabello is) and Colabello was 2/18, I would bet Gardy would have Arcia in the starting lineup. Colabello is hot, so he wants him in the lineup. Kubel has started once so far so my guess is he wanted to get him into the lineup. You seem to be getting pretty worked up when we are only five games in. Arcia has more than twice as many AB as Kubel and would be 3X if Kubel hadn't played the long game in Chicago. By the end of the year, Arcia should have 500-550 AB and Kubel around 350 since he will most likely be the primary DH against RHP.

    Yeah, the hoods he and Escobar are wearing sure give the impression they don't much like the weather in the northern US this time of year.

    It wasn't between gray or grey ... it was between goose or gray/grey duck
