    --------------------------

    Riverbrian, Riverbrian ... wherefore art thou, Riverbrian?

    Answer to come.
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Juliet: Deny my Father and refuse my name or if thou wilt not, but be sworn my love... and I'll no longer be a Capulet.

    Riverbrian: Umm... I not following what your saying... When did you start talking this way.

    Juliet: Tis but thy name that is my enemy... Thou art myself... though not a Montegue.

    Riverbrian: I'm gonna stop you right there... Again... I'm not following you... and I'm not drinking this stuff... A beer will be fine.

    Things to think about:

    1. The Orioles -- They are Chris Davis-less... That's a relief... But they are Machado-Full. The Orioles have the bats to do some damage... Pitching... is the question mark... Just like the Twins... This series could be full of 15 to 12 Games. Since I've made that claim... Watch... It'll be 2-1 nail biters all weekend long.

    2. Ubaldo Jimenez -- Mr. Inconsistent is what I call him... That's mainly because I feel a little strange calling anyone Ubaldo. The guy hit the Rockies like a nuclear bomb. He was the finest young pitcher in baseball. He was so good at one point that the Cleveland Indians traded a bunch of young pitchers who were supposed to be good and never became good to get him. It all evened out because Ubaldo struggled and struggled hard with the Indians until last year. It turned out that the Indians and Rockies traded almost nothing to each other. Well he's got a new deal with Baltimore and he's back to struggling. Baltimore can have him... I'm no longer interested.

    3. Ricky Nolasco -- There really isn't much to think about. His ERA is over 6 and that thing needs to come down. It needs to start coming down tonight.

    4. Chris Colabello -- After coming out of the gates in full stride he's hit a pretty sharp stutter. When you see a guy cool off like he has... The natural thought is regression but... I don't think so... He's still hitting the ball pretty hard. I think he can get it going at a moments notice.

    5. Temptation -- At my age... I don't worry about avoiding temptation anymore... It seems as I've aged... Temptation has been avoiding me.
    I am very grateful for the effort that ChiTown and RB put into these setups. We are blessed to have these to read on game days.

    It was due after he led baseball in babip for the first 3 weeks of the season.
    Luck works both ways, and eventually manages to even itself out.

    For you trivia fans Twins are 1 for their last 13 w/RISP, and 8 out of their last 46.

    Very 2013ish. Ugh.

    I don't know why he would come up only just to sit on the bench.

    Because their only other option on the 40 man would have been a 4th catcher.
    Per Bernadino, "Escobar to be the everyday SS".

    Not a "date". Just a fun dinner with someone I have not seen for 35 years or so. She brought her daughter, her son-in-law and one of her grandchildren. We had a lot of fun talking about old times and new times. The magic was still there, but I am a married man and would never do anything that would resemble a date.

    At our age... Just call it a date... When we were younger we had dates by the extra so tossing them aside because of technicalities was no problem.

    Now... If I go out to the bar with a bald guy named Lou just to have a couple beers.... I call it a date.

    Glad you had a good time.

    Nothing wrong with a group date ... kind of like being 15 again.

    That's one of the lamest boots by an infielder I've seen in quite some time. Thank god it wasn't us... I would have lost sleep over it.

    Oh my God...
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    What's happening on the field? Competent pitching and pretty poor hitting for the Twins. That's a change, but much more like what was expected.
