    Marquis pitching Sunday means we have a genuine NL pitcher in the 9th spot. He's gone .197/.216/.283. Basically Drew Butera, with a smidgen more pop.

    Referring to any player as "the Asian Guy" is simply racist. I'm surprised and disappointed that whoever monitors these threads has not removed this comment.

    I could be wrong, but I think he just forgot the name or didn't know how to spell it. If someone said "the white guy" I wouldn't take offense.

    Neither of you are the target group for this offense. Forget I said anything. Explaining racism to Minnesotans is wasted breath. Have many Asians in your Hastings neighborhood?

    I'd give Morneau a day off either Saturday or Sunday as well.

    I get that we want these guys to play every day, but have to be smart with both of them. Playing Morneau every day early in the season is likely what affected the wrist.



    Wrong twice today buddy!

    I sort of have trouble believing anyone is looking for excuses to get Drew Butera into the lineup. Mauer and Morneau should be in the lineup all three games this weekend.

    It's not about the color of your skin, it's about how thin it is. Relax with the hyper-sensitivity.

    Do you mean the Montreal Canadiens or Canadians in general? I'll assume the latter, in a word, yes, but not those French guys (oops, sorry). Open topics are, in no particular order, 110x55 yard fields (bigger is better), 12 men (the more the merrier), the Rouge (points for a good try), 3 downs (run, pass, punt instead of run, run,pass, punt), Lumberjacks, chesterfields, toques, Beavers (not that kind), the military, unequal representation in govt. , Celine Dion, Zed, Saskatchewan, washrooms, Newfies (sorry, did it again), Mr. Dressup, Smarties, Skidoos, 5 pin bowling....................pretty much anything actually.

    Iowa does have the Hawkeyes though and...well...being from Iowa.
