    1. Think about not wanting to think about anything especially after last night. But, it's a new day and that was yesterday. No, I am not a starry-eyed optimist, although there'd be nothing wrong with that if I were, but I'm too old and tired to carry this stuff around with me day to day. How do you think I got so old and tired? Anyway, we have to keep hoping for better. One day it will be ours again. There are so many glimmers on the horizon. So ... go Twins! It's a new day.

    2. Think about Thank You... Thanks ChiTown for posting the Game Thread... I was just about to post it but it's covered and that's Cool.

    3. Think about Oakland... When they Roll... They Roll... It's been awhile since I've seen a team just steamroll a team like this in Baseball. They don't just beat us... The Slap us silly. You are right today is a new day.

    4. Think about 1,000 Wins... I'm gonna keep thinking about this until Gardy gets it... THIS YEAR!!!

    5. Think about Budget Meetings... It's difficult to makes Ends Meet... It's also difficult to make Meetings End. A budget meeting has the potential to last forever!!! I'm not going to call one... I see the potential problem that lies ahead.

    This game is a no-hoper. I don't know why I watch.

    6. Think about...the lineup

    If at the start of the season the odds-makers in Vegas could set the odds for this being the optimal Twins lineup in September, what would they have been - and would anybody have been foolish enough to take that bet...

    What's the only thing worse than tuning in expecting to watch another drubbing by the A's?

    Having to wait through a rain delay to get to the drubbing.

    Here is a ray of hope for you--the Twins have supported Hernandez very well when he has started. Even since his last recall, the Twins have scored more for him than anyone else on the staff. They scored five and won when Pedro made his cameo start (drove to Cleveland from Louisville) and since he was recalled they have scored 9, 6, and 6 in his three starts (the Twins have won all three games). The team scored 7, 6, 15 and 10 runs in consecutive starts for Hernandez before he was optioned.

    7. Think about rain delays.

    It postpones the sorrow and disappointment. And you can spend the time being foolishly optimistic.

    I'm being foolish right now!

    Think about working on a Saturday and missing the joy of watching the Athletics clinch on TV.

    The rain delay is another reason I'm glad I didn't drive down yesterday for a night/day doubleheader.

    Instead, I drove to Reno for some shopping, and came back through a snowstorm over the mountain pass brought by the same weather system.

    I had such high hopes for a guppy rally bringing in a run based on that infield single, but it was not to be.

    This is shaping up to be another slaughter. I am going to take a nap.

    While it's true that the grocery stores here have slot machines just after the checkout lines, occasionally we grab some vittles too, as long as we are there.
