Game 51 Recap: From the Livejournal of Cole DeVries

Mood: Hungry XD

Well here I am in Rochester working out my game so that I am ready to rejoin the Minneosta Twins! My rehab is going really well, I feel great and I am throwing the ball good and Coach Glynn says that it's only a matter of time before I get the Big Call and get the Twins back on track to the playoffs! I pitch tonight and I'm so pumped, I think I'm gonna have a good outing.

I talked to Brian a little bit ago and he asked me what my ERA was down here and I told him "That's not the point" and he said "Bro just tell me what your ERA is" and I said "Rehab is about getting healthy not about trying to impress anyone" and he said "Dude just tell me your ERA" and I said "Fine it's 18.00 are you happy" and he said "Bro come on." I think he gets on my case to motivate me to work hard and achieve my Dreams and I think it's working because now I am so pumped to have a great game. He was also bragging about hitting a home run yesterday and then I asked him what his Batting Average is and he got angry and told me to "shut the **** **." He is a Good hitter so it's probably around .300 so I don't know what his deal is.

Dad and Janelle are in town to see me pitch tonight and they brought Kaycie because I guess her school year is over. She has become an even bigger Brat since she's been in high school. Last night we went to Chili's and I told Dad "Thanks for coming to visit me here but I'll be back in Minnesota soon so you could have just waited" and Kaycie said "You're never getting out of Triple A" and I didn't say anything but in my mind I was like "What do you even know about Baseball you little brat!" lol.

Anyway I'm so happy to be close to the Majors again and I think the Team senses that I am close to coming back because they have started winning some good ballgames. I know the guys rely on me a lot so I need to get out there and be a Leader for some of the young guys! I just can't wait to be back in the Twin Cities my home, although Brian said that we will need to have a discussion about our Living Situation because apparently Cassandra has been living with him for weeks and I am not Scared to see her again but I don't really want to. I asked if she had been staying in my room and Brian laughed and said "No" so I guess she's been sleeping on the couch. I don't know why Brian is letting her live with him but I get nervous and itchy when I think about it.

This is probably my last journal from my Rehab assignment, so until next time, I'll see you in the Majors!


Twins 8 - Brewers 6

    1. As did I.
      Pitchers and position players talking to each other, and living together! On an AL team!
      I assumed that only happened if there was a catcher to translate.

      At least I don't have to feel bad for Dunce's wife and child, given what Cole's stories had implied.

      1. Huh, I guess that never even came up. I forgot that there was more than one Brian on the team. And it probably would have made more sense if they were both pitchers. But Brian was always meant to be Dozier.

        1. Oh yeah, once Cassandra hooked up with him, it was totally clear to me it was Dozier.

          This is brilliant, btw. Not that you need to be told, but... well, this one might be my favorite, the way it builds.

        2. Brian has been a recurring character, and you've mentioned that it was Dozier before.

        3. I mean, his enemy is Alex Burnett, his friend is Dunce made immediate sense to me.
