    This is probably the more appropriate Rally Rhino for today's game.

    A tale of woe. Perhaps if the game starts to drag a bit I will elaborate.

    I predict this is going to be a short game thread as people are going to find other things to do.

    I am just going to blame this on RB for ditching his game thread duties. No other logical reason to foresee this happening.

    Remember earlier this year when people were mocking the Yankees and praising the Twins.......remember when people thought signing Nolasco was a good move?

    Well, at least Buxton is back on the field today. So that's something positive, I guess.

    I was on board with the Nolasco signing. And he is still only 1/8 the way through the contract, but geez, what a disappointing start.

    No, Senator, I do not recall any of that happening. And on the advice of my legal counsel, I'm not answering any more questions.

    And we were happy to see Worley go.

    I'll answer my own question, in his 18 outings only 3 times has he given up his first run in the 4th or later:

    1) 2nd inning, 2 runs
    2) 2nd inning, 2 runs
    3) 5th inning, 1 run
    4) 3rd inning, 2 runs
    5) 2nd inning, 3 runs
    6) 4th inning, 1 run
    7) 3rd inning, 2 runs
    8) 1st inning, 1 run
    9) 4th inning, 1 run
    10) 1st inning 2 runs
    11) 3rd inning, 1 run
    12) 2nd inning, 1 run
    13) 1st inning, 3 runs
    14) 1st inning, 1 run
    15) 2nd inning, 2 runs
    16) 1st inning, 2 runs
    17) 2nd inning, 1 run
    18) 1st inning, 2 runs

    That's at least 1 run in the first in 6 out of the last 11 games, and at least 1 run in the 1st or 2nd in 9 of 11.

    Why didn't we sign Kazmir instead of Nolasco and why did we give him a four year deal instead of Hughes?

    Mr. Pohlad is going to have a hard time selling tickets after the all-star break. Glad I didn't spend good money on this game.......

    ROBIN: Holy Rally Rhino, Batman! I can't believe the Bat Computer was wrong. It's going to take at least seven runs to win this game.

    BATMAN: Never mind that, Robin. The Riddler wants to know why they build fences around cemeteries.

    ROBIN: The fiend! Could it be because people are dying to get in?

    BATMAN: Have I ever told you your shorts are too tight?

    That's pretty easy to say now.
