    Pedro: "Hey guys, look at me! I'm Liam. Dur, dur, I give up a hit. Dur, dur, I give up another hit. Just like Liam. Dur dur, now a run's in. Dur, dur, now a walk. Hey guys! Why aren'tcha laffin? OK, I'll get the last out. Buncha wet blankets."

    I had to work today too - had to do a funeral.

    Then I come back to watch the Twins.

    I honestly don't know which is more depressing.

    Is anybody else really missing Morneau at first yet?

    Sigh ... I know that was a bad throw ... but would Morneau have been able to scoop that?

    Depends. Was the deceased old enough not to be mistaken for the Twins veteran deadwood? Did the deceased lead a fuller life than most of the young Twins talent has shown capable of so far?

    If Arcia were in RF today, the score would be 4-0 now and no outs, with a runner on 2nd or 3rd.

    Ugh. Am hoping that Texas loses tonight so we don't have to see any celebrating tomorrow.



    edit 1: Well, hoping our game doesn't outlast theirs.


    edit 2: hmm, nm, if that happens I likely won't still be watching.


    edit 3: and on that note ...

    Speaking of Liam, Dick says he's the long man today.

    Well, "long" meaning "first."

    Could be a record breaker today

    "Pitch-to-Contact, we have contact." Just love those prescient comments from DickBert: "Pedro needs to pitch more inside", "Pedro needs to pitch into the 7th inning"; "None of the team took batting practice before the game, the A's are taking it now."

    Wow.

    Yeah, it's rough. I am not a fan of Dickbert, but they definitely have a terrible job right now.

    We should change our name to the Washington Senators. Not as a homage to the team that was before they came to Minnesota but to the one that plays the Harlem Globetrotters.

    Liam Hendriks just recorded 3 outs without giving up 6 runs in between.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Where else can you pop out to the 22 yard line?
