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

    What will Brian reveal tonight on the inner workings of his mind? Check back if you dare. Scary stuff!
    ------------------------------------------

    Dang Right I'm scared... I gotta get to the baseball diamond and coach some Babe Ruther's in a half hour and I still gotta grab some food before I go and I've wasted all my time for game thread thoughts in another thread defending the virtue of Ben Revere. My fault... Poor Planning... So Quickly... Things to think about:

    1. Phil Hughes -- He's good... And Now he only has to face 8 legitimate batters as opposed to the 9 he faces most nights in the American League. The way Phil is throwing and in consideration of this being a national league game. Phil might allow -2 Runs today. I hope we don't lose -2 to -3.

    2. Pinto-- Where is he? It's not a knock on Suzuki... How can I knock Suzuki... He's playing very studly at the moment but it's Pinto's turn. Suzuki can play tomorrow.

    3. Kubel -- I see where he is... I personally wonder why? A little Nunez in LF would be alright with me tonight.

    4. Santana -- Great guitar player... Great Pitcher... Over Rated Catcher/3B and a Fast SS who is fun to watch.

    5. Time -- Ummm... Time sure keeps ticking... I gotta run... I'll game thread with you all when I get home from the game.

    They're not going to let this TBA guy bat more than once. That's baseball 101.

    If TBA is shorthand for Pedro Florimon, I bet they let him bat as often as he wants.

    heh ... I didn't have the Twins lineup yet when I posted that, but I was betting that Hughes would be 9th. And I was right! (yeah, big stretch)

    Is that a double-dog dare? Or just an ordinary one?

    Depends ... how scary is it for you on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most?

    I did in fact check back, so no need to even dare the likes o' me. Thus it would be a waste of a double dog dare...

    Hope the Babe Ruthers have a good game!

    I'm bad at all the satisfaction survey scales...

    I'll try my hand at google image search, and see if i can find something appropriately scary.

    Um... Best i can do, i think:Time_Bandits_Evil.jpg

    Hughs just looks like a pro out there, but then he did do the barbershop quartet commercial.

    Not the back end of a double steal or a two out full count! Bonus was that Bremer said how unlikely it was they'd send Kubel a pitch or two before the steal.
