    Game Thread: Twins@A's 9/22 3:05PM

    Twins: SP Cole DeVries

    CF Alex Presley
    2B Brian Dozier
    3B Trevor Plouffe
    LF Oswaldo Arcia
    DH Josmil Pinto
    1B Chris Parmelee
    RF Darin Mastroianni
    SS Pedro Florimon
    C Eric Fryer

    A's: SP Sonny Gray

    CF Coco Crisp
    SS Jed Lowrie
    3B Josh Donaldson
    LF Brandon Moss
    DH Yeonis Cespedes
    RF Josh Reddick
    1B Daric Barton
    C Stephen Vogt
    2B Eric Sogard

    Things to think about:

    1. Coco Crisp... I can't believe that I've started all these game threads facing the A's and have not mentioned Coco Crisp yet. I'm slipping... He's a real nice combo of speed and power. But... His skill isn't the thing to think about... It's his name... Coco Crisp? When he gets older... He will change it to Fiber One.

    2. The A's... Anyone tired of playing them? The beatings have been Severe. They can clinch the west today. I'm sure they want to do it in front of the home fans.

    3. Eric Fryer... Fryer getting the start behind the plate. Every time I read his name... I think of every delicious food. Even a Snickers Bar tastes good deep fried.

    4. The Vikings... The Browns have scored 24 points at halftime.

    5. Cuteness... I heard someone call a puppy. "Cute as a button". I looked down at my shirt... I looked at a button... I tried to look at the button from multiple angles. In the end... I didn't get it. Maybe I'm just not a button guy.
    A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

    Wow. Not a lot of posts for this game.

    Shame the redirects didn't last for another 2 hours, would have given me an excuse not to watch the game.

    At least Arcia hit a 3-run dinger today with another RBI single to boot.

    Yeah, to make up for all the runs he gave up the other day in his fielding.

    The Cubbies lost today, so it looks like the Twins are trying to keep pace with them.

    We need Terry Ryan to sign about 3 or 4 good free agent starting pitchers this off-season. Chances are there are several pretty darn good pitchers out there to make offers to. Anyone else as optimistic as I am?

    BTW, I Am Not Sold On Josh RoenickeTM, either. Or most of the bullpen for that matter. I think it's a collection of pitchers that mostly is an asset to a bad team trying to make it through a season and not collect 120 losses, but would be exposed if they ever made it to the post-season.

    To paraphrase Clark Griffith:

    Fans like high draft picks. And we have assembled a team to please our fans.

    OK, need to get out for some fresh air. Be back in 90 minutes or so, probably in time for the 7th inning to resume our banter here.

    I would like to spend 5 minutes of quality time with whoever engineered the redirects.

    I just got back from getting a massage and a haircut. Now I can stand a few innings of despair.

    Not me. The ones I have read about don't seem exciting, and the Twins don't seem likely to win any bidding wars for the better ones.

    10 to 4. Not even one close game in the series. Not acceptable.

    Almost a grand slam. But maybe this bad ending for the season will pay off with a better draft pick or some new blood with better ideas.

    Unless someone is a true mercenary like Greinke, why would anyone decent want to sign with the Twins, even if they were they highest bidder?

    Well, for me, a sappy Hallmark movie is a better excuse for tears than the Twins game.

    Baseball=no crying
    Hallmark movie= ... well, I'm not really sure what a Hallmark Movie is.
