GameChat – Rockies @ Twins #3, 12:10 pm

Today makes me a little … nervous.  Maybe more anxious?  Not sure what the right term is and that in itself is probably proof of my discombobulated emotional status.  It’s a day game…  we haven’t had such a great track record with day games this year.  But we have Frankie on the mound and that makes me optimistic!  But the anxiety returns when I remember we’re facing Ubaldo… *wince* 

May the Record Reflect:  I think that is a fantastic name for baseball and he should be one of those people that just goes by one name – like Cher or Madonna.  Why are the examples alway women?

The weather is turning hot and humid here in Minnesota with lots of bright sunshine – you know the kind of weather in which they keep saying the ball might start carrying more.  So we’ll leave the emotional rollercoaster there and hope for a great game of baseball.  Win Twins!

Keep your eyes open for a possible upcoming rant about day games/getaway games.

  1. Ichiro pretty much goes by one name. Ichiro. Only player with his first name on his jersey as opposed to his last!

  2. Looks like you all finally caught up with my rant about day games from about a month ago 🙂

  3. yeah, our plan is to see if we can’t EXPAND upon those thoughts (shared by many – you seem to have found a like-minded crowd here) and see if a particular trend and gameplay philosophy is attached that is CAUSING the problems we are noticing.

  4. I suspect we’ll eventually discover it’s just misplaced “Minnesota nice”. I’m hoping the Twins will eventually adopt a more Iowan approach. You know, the, “run up the score and then carry off their damn goal posts” attitude.

  5. Kirby Puckett was (and still is) a one-name player for many a sports fan. I say “Kirby” and who comes to mind?
