    Whoever came up with the concept of 154 games (then 162) was kind of screwy, I think.

    It's only one day, but it also happens to be the day that this suddenly seems like it might be a potentially good thing to me.

    I would have liked to see Gibson come back out for the ninth after 95 pitches.

    It seems to me that Fryer is pretty good at framing close pitches.

    It's also pretty hot in Texas.

    But nice that they finally won one.

    Winning is fun
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Nice win, and Gibson deserved it. I will miss Polanco.

    I think they learned from Phil Hughes. And I really don't think the Twins are used to the Texas heat.

    I was bracing myself for Perk allowing a hit or two and a runner in scoring position. I am not sure I am able to process him striking out the side without any drama.

    Unless they send a pitcher down but I don't really see that.
    Both coming back on the same day? Just thought it'd be nice to keep Polanco until the 2nd one is ready. (And yes, GCTF, I do realize how far-fetched that is ... just ... making hopes out loud.)
