    Well, I'd imagine it has something to do with the fact that playing 162 games over the course of a few months will wear down most people...

    The foul lines have been kind to the twins today.

    And regarding the 9th inning pitcher, I assume Perkins might like to pitch?

    Along with Snepp putting DP thoughts into Mr. RB's head, I'd like to take this moment to point out the brilliance of this observation. We now return to the live broadcast.

    As was revealed in the popular 1999 documentary Office Space, many employees function at a higher level when allowed to "space out" occasionally.
