    Tight, tight zone again today. I would rather see them open it up for both pitchers.

    Tight zone + knuckleball pitcher + sinkerball pitcher = 4-hour game.

    4 straight walks = 1 run

    With the exchange rate... What is it in Canada?

    I think knuckleballers should be allowed to keep a beer on the side of the mound.

    I remember Dickey pitching for the Twins in an early May game in 2009. Mauer had never caught him since he missed spring training and the month of April and Gardenhire ordered Dickey to throw fastballs in a game situation. Dickey allowed the game-winning hit after about a half dozen foul balls.

    By the way... I would have sent Dozier first pitch of the Mauer at bat.

    We have a little "pick the stick" contest for each series -- Plouffe is single-handedly trying to do away with the fairly sizeable lead I had.

    Lawrie hits the ball to Plouffe and Plouffe flubs it.

    Plouffe hits the ball Lawrie... The result will be 180 degrees different.

    Lots of incentive for Gibby to pitch efficiently today.

    Gameday is setting a new record for horse*$&% quality, and that's compared to their routinely low bar. This is a joke today. They must have gotten snow in the fiber optics.

    Brian I hope you keep the lipstick in a warm place or it could freeze up. Actually keep everything in a warm place.

    180 degrees different? This I gotta see!

    This anecdote is also retold in Dickey's book.

    Here in Twins territory, we employ chess tactics far beyond what any mortal baseball mind could ever hope to understand, all you can do is hope it works

    When I think 180..

    "Plouffe races in on a slow grounder, turns and throws back to third--- OHH and it's down the left field line! No one was covering third! One run scores...
