GameChat – ST – Twins @ Pirates, 12:05 pm, FSN & am1500

I finally have caught up with all the posts that happened while I was incommunicado.  For the record, I’m not really a fan of the whole “unplugged” life for more than a week.  It’s ok for a day or two but the backlog after a week was just miserable.  Anyway, I’m back, I miss y’all and I’m sure JC is glad to finally have some help with the game posts again.  I still don’t understand why FSN chose Monday games for the broadcasts while most people are at work but I’m certainly going to enjoy it regardless.  Whoever can and wants will be able to join in for the chat.

One last note on today’s lineup – I thought that we played by NL rules when we were in NL parks – even during spring training. It appears however that we are still using a DH today so either they changed that rule like they did for the All-Star game or I was just wrong completely.  That does happen on the rare occasion.
