    That, plus I look forward to a day when the Twins pitching is uniformly good enough that it's not a jinx to recognize it as such. Fans of a good team would laugh at me for worrying about such a paltry jinx.
    I look forward to the day when Nolasco doesn't allow a baserunner in the 1st inning.

    Feels like cr*p after it was so nice the last 4 or 5 days (low 80's, low humidity). Wasn't ready for this again.
    I'd rather have 90s in the summer than 60s.

    Fuld with a nice leaping catch. Followed immediately by a Revere-like three-bouncer to the cutoff man.

    If we had less pitching, would that mean we were getting outs faster?

    So right now, with 2 on and none out in the first, (scratch that, 1 out. Nice catch, Mr. Fuld) we are getting more pitching...

    After it was so nice the last few days, I guess it was just a kick in the b*tt to remind me that this is Iowa.

    But, in the words of every farmer I know, it is great for the corn -- you can almost hear it grow.

    I think the Twins need to institute a $1000 fine to a pitcher who walks the first batter of an inning!

    How many games has Nolasco has where he didn't give up a run early?

    I guess Fuld can only make that catch once in an inning.

    Why does it feel like a victory that the Yankees only scored 2 there??

    I had my grand kids here for the last 3 days-didn't see any games, played with them, took them swimming, shot some fireworks, and today was finally looking forward to watching the Twins-yuk!

    The only good thing about Nolasco pitching today is that I don't have to see him when the Twins come to Seattle this week.

    Nolasco is very Blackburn-like.
