    When I located this photo, I took a look around to see how it and various copies of it was interpreted. What I found was universally "heart". I was wondering who in this group would speak up with the ambiguous interpretation (that I also was worried about, hence my research).

    I'm as subtle as a Twins starting rotation.

    That last one did not look like a strike to me.

    Most people with nice jobs have annual reviews, in which you look back at the year's accomplishments to determine things going forward. With reGardy to the Twins manager, I am having trouble coming up with many. Dozier, yes. Mauer was good, but any credit for that went on previous years' annual review. He installed Florimon as the regular SS, and got AAA hitting to go with MLB fielding. On the pitching side, Deduno stepped forward with an above league-average performance before needing to be shut down. Perkins, see Mauer above. They got full value out of Correia. The bullpen in general came out OK, particularly Swarzak who I choose to believe grew up a little after the cracked rib incident, but nobody emerged as lights-out.

    If the Twins ended at 66-96 with several young guys having stepped forward and older guys like Correia not contributing like expected, I'd feel differently. Given what we've seen, I'd give the manager an Unsatisfactory rating and look to move on.

    Since Chief's not here to say it, I'll fill in:

    The low road. You took it.

    / edit: Oh, and believe me. I could have picked a much worse potato picture than that one.

    Michael Tonkin's 0.00 ERA. Ruined. I blame Gardy.

    Pretty clearly a 3-inning stint for Rally Avatar needs to be allowed for. Here she is, one last time this season, glunn's best friend, Olivia!

    So who makes the World Series this year? I am guessing Tigers and Dodgers.

    Ubaldo Jimenez feels the might of the Rally Avatar.

    I always go with the large payrolls so I'll guess Angels against Phillies.

    The Rally Avatar is a subtle and ineffable power. Not a Get Out Of AAA Free card.

    / I realize this does nothing to explain Eric Fryer's RBI single

    Hey game threaders. I want to thank you all for bringing some good times and a ton of laughs to the table.

    If I offended, annoyed, or step out of bounds on anyone this season - you have my sincerest apologies. I am a work in progress.

    Looking forward to it. The moderation duties should quiet down quite a bit now that there will be nothing to argue feverishly about.

    And thanks for your contributions here - they've been fun. As, I guess I should add, has been the case with everyone else too. I'm glad everyone got the idea of what Game Thread was about.

    So if the Cubs and Twins end the season with identical records, who gets the higher draft pick? Do they flip a coin?

    Same to you my friend. You have been a valuable contributor to the game threads, and I am sure that your mom is proud of you.
