  1. I never had a problem with that phrase before because I'd never heard it. Thanks for that.

    I guess I have problems with the ones that are said wrong -- "I could care less" for example

    1. I wouldn’t say it actually annoys me, but I always notice when people swap “less” and “fewer,” and will correct it in my head every time.

      1. I will correct in my head when someone says who instead of whom. Also verbage for verbiage.

      2. Less/fewer is way more painful to me than who/whom.

        I am on the verge of consigning who/whom to thee/thou space.

  2. To get back to the question, it always annoys me when Atteberry says, "They left some meat on the bone."

  3. Topps actually had a viable action image of a Twins player in this year's Heritage set -- and it's everyone's favorite player!

    Not sure there's any chance of identifying the play, but here it is if anyone wants to take a stab at it.

    1. Six home games against KC. Carlos Santana played in all of them.

      Time to check the logs

      1. April 30 - Santana's only time on base was a HR
        May 1 - Santana on base thrice. Scored twice and stranded at 1st
        May 2 - Forced at second to end the inning. Forced at second, batter safe. Stranded
        May 28 - On base once, stranded on K
        May 29 - Stranded, scored, stranded
        May 30 - Stranded at 2nd, stranded at first

        So it looks like May 2nd. Here's the video of the game. They're wearing the right unis, but none of the videos show the play.

          1. I think it means “forced at second, inning ended” in the first time on base (which is not this picture), then “force at second, batter safe” in the second time on base (which is this picture).

            1. Yep, it's the second, italicized one.

              Santana was out at second in both the 1st and 4th innings.

              His out was the end of the first, but the fourth continued with the batter beating out the throw

  4. The Minnesota Twins got the New York Yankees to eat a bad contract, then turned around and used the money to sign the top free agent on the market. I am going to be laughing all night long lmao.

    1. I had sort of foolishly hoped that they might be trying to clear the salary for the bigger fish, but I didn't think it was possible. holy cow.
