    Ricky only made it into the 6th inning before proving you correct.

    Hm. A player for whom injuries seem to have eroded his skills, versus a player who hasn't shown enough stick to forecast much success. The classic win-win trade.

    Maybe it is sad, but I only feel really comfortable when the Twins are up by more than four runs that way one swing of the bat at anytime can't tie it.

    Does that count as a QS, for a MN pitcher? I'll admit, so far, Suzuki is about 1000000x the player I pitctured when they acquired him.
    Lighten up Francis....

    if nothing else it adds another "true CF" to the organization. Maybe the Twins will have fewer middle infielders playing CF in the minors if they add another guy?

    By mentioning the fact that I'm jinxing things, I'm actually reverse jinxing things...but I can't remember ever seeing the Twins' offense be this hot for this long.

    On a similar note, if Florimon pops up four times in a game and it's fielded by the 1b, 2b, ss and 3b, does Elias give him credit for hitting for the cycle?

    Pretty sure that word was officially de-ethnicized the minute that its most famous use became an Italian/Greek Jersey kid using it with the blessing of a Japanese immigrant:

    You were doing great until this explanation resulted in a triple jinx.

    Oh man, how dare you mention the triple jinx?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Brilliant Gameday Robot commentary that you wouldn't get from a live person:

    SCOUT: Juan Carlos Oviedo may prefer to go after Joe Mauer, whose OPS is .666 this season, with the changeup rather than facing Brian Dozier, whose OPS is .790.

    I think the catcher has to get one too.

    Does catching a called third strike count?

    Thank you, your post corrected that. I'd be jinxing it again by pointing that out, except that I am noting it in advance which, by the rules of Jinxology, negates the effect. Or, at least by this point I have lost count.

    By now the jinx has no idea if it's coming or going, meaning the outcome will be solely determined by the skills of the teams. Fortunately, we have been spotted 5 runs. It should be close.

    In Lakota country, Colabello is known as "Beautiful Sugar Water." Time for more ribbies.

    Has to be two outs with someone on base.
