      1. Are you talking about Pinto tagging him out? I saw the replay, he didn't turn toward second at all.

        1. Yeah, there looked like there might have been a slight "BALL'SLOOSENOWAITDON'TGO" go through his head, but he never turned his shoulders or hips towards second at all.

  1. heheh, Target Field music guy playing the Law and Order theme song while Mattingly is talking with the ump.

  2. Randball Stu:

  3. This may be the most bizarre transaction I've made in a while, but appropriate for this forum.
    I just now received two Twins tickets for Saturday from door-to-door LDS missionaries.
    Interesting approach, I must say.

      1. It cost four very long minutes, but they led with the tickets. I didn't want to be ungrateful.

    1. Back when I was at CDC (a whilst back), the LDS database was the biggest DB in the world at the time).

      1. Das Kind was setting up a ball game in the front yard, which prompted the discussion in the first place.

  4. Bert is in full lawn-getting-off mode and sighing loudly. He reminds me of someone who was born poor, pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, made millions of dollars, and is dumbfounded as to why every lazy poor person can't do the exact same thing.

    1. To be fair, Florimon taking the bat off his shoulder usually means bad things. Understandable how the ump got confused.

  5. Im having flashbacks to Denard Span

    Just announced in the press box: Concussion-like symptoms for Aaron Hicks. Removed for "precautionary reasons." Kubel pinch-hit in 7th.

    1. Jamey Wright is so old, Joe Carter hit his last major league HR and got his last major league hit off him. This was in 1998.

    1. I understand sunk costs academically, but still can't convince myself to leave a game I've invested so much in.
